About Thelungdoc
Joined October 2018
I thought being a member of Wealthy Affiliate would be right up my alley. I am nearing retirement and would like to establish another source of income.

Ideally, I would also like to do something that helps others in some way. What a better way to spend your retirement years than to help others.

Research shows that many people work their whole lives for retirement and then find emptiness afterward. Having no purpose or passion in their lives - they soon lose interest in life, cease doing things, and die.

How sad is that!

But you need to have something to offer people in order to help them. I have found the best help is the kind that teaches people how to help themselves.

it's the old teaching a person how to fish rather than just giving them a fish - that is a lasting gift that can make a real difference.

Everybody has useful skills they can teach other people, something that helps them wake up in the morning and gives energy and fulfillment to their lives.

Many times it is creating something beautiful - like a wonderful webpage that can teach something or fulfill some need.

I have found that when you help others, you will be helped in return. You reap what you sow.

Let's do this together!

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way David! :)

Thank you Doctor.. I have a similar idea for helping others but I am not a professional. I was a truck driver for many years and finally became unemployable due to age mostly. Unable to save or invest for retirement I ended up living on SS. My interest now after twenty years of retirement is to inform and help others know what it is like. Of course SS is not a livable amount to live in the US so I am living in Thailand. When you are in a sedentary situation you tend to eat to much and fail to get any exercise. This leads to physical problems you know much more about then I. The medical expense is overwhelming to so many seniors and they have no way to overcome except take their meds and waste away till they die. I am 81 and not on any meds, but I am overweight and my body is very weak from lack of exercise. I am doing something about it by diet and gym exercise. My idea for a website would be a place seniors or anyone could come to for information, ideas, maybe a chat line. The advertisements would be for seniors. So its just an idea as I have no website. So I begin the training and see how it goes.

Great cause to serve! Are you a medical doctor? You could help so many people help themselves in so many areas! Could I borrow this statement of yours in your profile for a post?:

"I have found the best help is the kind that teaches people how to help themselves".

just perfect for a blog, thank you for sharing it! :) Paula

Dear Doc,

I admire you taking the time to help others. I need it so very much. I am overwhelmed with this program. I learn by example so if you have previous experience with traffic and product development and marketing or merchandise account set up. I would appreciate any assistance you can provide me. Thank you for your valuable time.

Thank you for the warm welcome you wrote to me, now I am following you.
We are thinking the same way as I think many people here do, we would like to be of help as much as we get help...and that's good thinking that will lead to success I believe.
