Starting Over in Later Years

Starting over in your later years is totally doable and can be super rewarding. It’s all about taking stock of what you want, diving into new passions, making new friends, and rolling with the changes. Seriously, there’s no age limit on finding happiness and purpose in life. If you’re not sure where to begin, chatting with a counselor or life coach could be a great move to help you figure things out.

Here are a few things to consider….


  • Choose one goal at a time – we all have the habit of getting overzealous in our personal goals and start out wanting to lose weight, diet and exercise, clean out clutter, take a class, earn a certificate, etc. And then, we spiral out of control and fail at all of the above.
  • Begin to get excited, and it will show. Power tip – the more you get excited about what you are doing, the more inspired you will feel and the more momentum you will create.


  • Examine and explore which area of your career is not working.
  • Ask yourself what your end goal is – do you want to retire earlier, work fewer hours, or have more power? What is your end goal?
  • Once you have discovered your end goal, start creating a plan of action.
  • Pick five action steps, beginning with the smallest.
  • Take one small action step per day for a set amount of time.


  • Be honest about who you are.
  • Take a look at your actions, thoughts, and pre-conceived notions when relating to others.
  • Ask how we can show up as a contribution to the other person.


  • What’s your story? We all have stories around money. It’s your job to uncover your story.
  • Once you uncover your negative money story and self-sabotaging habits surrounding money, you can now write your own brand new story.
  • Start practicing positive affirmations around money.
  • Practice these daily.

Life Purpose

  • Stop Self-sabotaging behavior.
  • Practice leaving the comfort zone.
  • Quiet your mind.

  • Choose an area in your life where you want more prosperity. Is it in your career, your financial status, credit card debt or savings and retirement?

  • Allow and accept what works for you.
  • Spirituality success comes when you accept who you are and what works for you.
  • Get beyond the mind and the ego.

For all of these categories, remember:

  • Get quiet/get still.

  • Take action.
