You’d be surprised, as an older person, what potential could exist for your valuable skills and talents right now. You might not be able to use your talents and skills the same way as you once did, but talents and skills can be used in different ways. For instance as far back as I can remember I’ve always wanted to motivate and encourage people.
During my working life I fulfilled this desire in different ways, firstly by becoming a mother, then a teacher, then a school counsellor and then a registered psychologist. When I retired at 55 I pursued the same goals and I used the same talents and skils of motivating and encouraging but I used them differently. I used a completely different vehicle. I used Natural Bodybuilding with the aim of motivating older women to defy the traditional female age stereotype and strive confidently to reach their dreams and become all they wanted to be.
Presently I am using the same skills and talents and pursuing the same goals but this time I’m writing books. In these books I’m documenting all the things i’ve learnt on my journey through life.
I’m doing this so I can leave behind a record of my life and learning for my children and their children, as well as anyone else who is interested in being motivated to move forward in life. In fact I think we should all leave behind a record of our lives as a legacy for future generations. You might not think anyone would be interested in your life story but I can assure you that is not the case. The popular TV show “Who Do You Think You Are?’ can atest to this. To be continued——-
