Retirement Visualization

Retirement Visualization
20 Jul 2016

The greatest golfers in the world visualize each and every time they hit the ball. They can see the shot before it’s hit. Jason Day, the world’s #1 golfer, actually closes his eyes for about 5 seconds to concentrate on the shot. If it works for golfers, then maybe it will work for you.

I’m not talking about chasing a ball around all day; I’m talking about visualizing your retirement. Close your eyes and imagine what your own retirement will look like. It may seem simple, but not many people have truly thought about what their retirement will look like. What do you see?

– When do you retire?
– How will you spend your time?
– Will you take up a new hobby or activity?
– Where will you spend your time?
– Will you travel?

These are just a few of the things you want to think about when it comes to retirement. Visualizing is a great starting point to building your dream retirement.

Good Luck!
