Busting the Retirement Lies: Living with Passion, Purpose, and Abundance Throughout Our Lives (Busting the Money Myths series Book 2)

by Kim D.H. Butler

* Expanded and revised third edition *

Is it possible that everything you have been told about retirement planning is wrong?

Is retirement dead? Perhaps not yet, but it’s on life support. The concept of retirement, as we’ve known it, is becoming a thing of the past. With the major economic, social, cultural, medical, technological, and employment shifts that have occurred in the past two decades, most everyone under the age of 100 now has to rethink what they thought “retirement” would be.

Furthermore, the various “financial planning” industries are still looking at retirement through the lens of the 20th century. As a result, they are pushing products, services, and concepts that can actually reduce your chances for comfort in your later years.

Busting the Retirement Lies is a quick read that is packed and to the pointâ??and which will transform your perspective on retirement. You will learn:

– Why “saving enough” is not enough

– How financial planners can skew projections, creating false expectations

– Why and how conventional retirement strategies are changing

– And more eye-opening “new realities”

But most of all, regardless of your current age, you will learn what you can do to best enjoy the rest of your life.

Note: Due to the economic models discussed in this book, it is mainly applicable to readers in the United States; however, it may still be relevant to readers in Canada and Western Europe. Please read the sample text before purchasing.

TIME FAVORS YOUR HABITS – NOT YOUR GOALS…

What stalls most agents from building sustainable businesses is the misconception that getting from point A to objective B will require more energy, skill and time than we have. So they revert to short-cuts. But the truth is big problems are rarely solved with big solutions, but by a sequence of small solutions, sometimes over weeks, months, years, sometimes over decades.

by Greg Marcus

Tired of stress at home because you are thinking about work all the time?

Recovering workaholic and celebrated life coach Dr. Greg Marcus shares the story of how he cut his hours by a third in a way that made him more productive and more effective at work. Busting Your Corporate Idol offers a step-by-step approach so you can too.

Busting Your Corporate Idol tells stories from the corporate world the way it really is – where “successful people” secretly suffer from stress-related illnesses, and selfless people become depressed because they don’t understand that some people will never reciprocate. You will learn how to avoid these pitfalls, and what to do if you are in that situation today.

Who to trust at work

How to debunk cognitive illusions that lead to stress, anxiety, and longer hours

Why you risk becoming depressed if you don’t understand your corporate culture

How to retired and happy: 6 Steps You Should Know before Late: Retire happy

by benedict stewart


Is retirement really the blissful stage everyone’s talking about? Does it really allow you enough time to gaze at the stars and stop and smell the flowers?

Everybody gets older at some point. Signs of aging already emerge even during your thirties. After a few years, you already need glasses. Memory lapses are observed.

You prepare for these. Have you prepared for retirement as well?

Retirement can be defined as the final stage of your life. It’s not meant to sound dark or anything; you can choose to look at it positively. Retirement allows you to add more skills to what you have now. It gives you another chance to try the things you weren’t able to do when you were younger.

Modern medicine has made man live longer today than those born in the previous decades. There’s a dramatic change in life expectancy. For all you know, it will already be common for someone to live up to a hundred.

This is also another reason why you should be prepared for retirement.

Why is Retired and Happy a good read? It’s because it gives you the reality upon retirement. Don’t worry – retirement is a good place to be in, but just like any other stage of life, you have to get ready. A lot of planning is needed. You won’t be happy upon retirement not until you know what’s in store for you. It gives you an idea on what to expect once retirement finally arrives.

Once you’re prepared for retirement, you’ll be welcoming it with open arms, and then you’ll retire and be happy. You don’t just retire, you retire with a smile. You retire with a cheerful disposition with a positive outlook on what’s to come.

It will take a lot to have a happy retirement. There will be a lot of effort involved. Plan well, and everything will be worth the effort you spend.
