If you sometimes sit around sharing memories of your active duty days, is it because you miss active duty or do you simply have fond memories? The question may look simple but of course isn't. There are some things about active duty life we miss such as the comaraderie, the feeling of making a difference to our country's defense, and the perks (active duty vs. retired pay and certain allowances). And of course, there are certain things we don't miss such as long separations and less-than-ideal moves.
Some retirees are simply bored with civilian life and never quite find a niche for themselves. This is probably more common than we realize. Many of us may not have actually considered retirement at ages 45 or 50 as we set goals for our lives. Heck, some people never even set goals period. I invite you to start right now, today, and set some goals for yourself for the next 30, 60, and 90 days. Maybe you want to lose 10 pounds or buy a new car. Maybe there is a place you want to visit or a good deed you've been meaning to do.
Now set some longer range goals of 6 months, a year, and 5 years. You don't have to have a fully laid out plan to get there, just have a goal. Are some of your goals financial? Perhaps you have some debts you want to get rid of. Or maybe you want a larger portfolio of mutual funds. Are you worried that the current economy may not support your goals? Are there places you've always wanted to visit? Are there people you want to meet or reconnect with?
We are honored and blessed to be able to offer you hope and a plan for achieving anything you desire in life, whether it's financial, personal, or a cause you are passionate about. You may be skeptical because you think that things that sound too good to be true usually are. You owe it to yourself at least look at what we do. After all, we are just like you . We're a retired military couple with 2 adult children, one grandchild, and one on the way. We have elderly parents to take care of. We've worked corporate jobs. We go to church. We pay taxes. (But our home business offers some great savings here.) We have dreams for ourselves, our families and our world.
Trust in your creator to provide for you abundantly. Believe in yourself and your ability to accomplish anything you desire. If you miss active duty life, there are avenues to achieve the same and even more ambitious goals. Give us a call today.
To You and Your Success,
Ed and Sandra Hayes
