Retire Successfully in the Personal Domain

How Accomplished People Retire Successfully In the Personal Domain[1]

The book concentrates on those persons in the United States between 1946 and 1964. So this is making comment about people between the age ages of 49 and 67.

First:   “What I can say is the idea of who you are, what it means to be you, and how happy and satisfied you are, are the most personal truths you hold.  I will not, and cannot, try to change your ideas of who you are.  I will attempt to share with you the benefits of knowing, questioning, and improving yourself.”

Next:  “Your self is much like a cake, made up of many parts, including (in the case of a cake), flour, suger, milk, eggs, flavorings, and other ingredients.  The ingredients may be constant, but it is the baker who makes the cake.  To understand your self you need to know about the many “ingredients” from which you are made.  Once you know yourself, you can blend your personal, social, physical, and financial dimands into an integrated whole that is greater than the sum of it’s parts.”

“So: How would you describe yourself?
·   Spiritual, caring, energetic, curious, fun
·   Ugly, unfriendly, miserable, loud, smart
·   Caring, introverted, creative, polite, analytic
·   Solid, creative, thoughtful, curious and bold
·   Happy, compassionate, friendly, spiritual
·   Wife, grandma, organized, smart, friendly
·   Independent, strong, adventurous, young, powerful
·   Six feet three inches tall
·   Handsome, tall, dark successful, liar
·   Happy, funny, reliable, creative, sensual
·   Honest, irritating, annoying, faithful. Overweight
·   Stormy, mighty, scholar, disturbed, contained
·  Taller than most my age

   Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
