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! :)

@lungdoc, thank you for the follow, and a very re-affirming bio. I found retirement, which happened after being disestablished, and having a big plan to be getting on with, still a huge step. And a step with complexities that did not fully emerge until about two years after retirement.

So reassessing has been important. Avoiding the overthinking even more so, And still learning not to overthink!

Thanks for the insight.

Thanks for the comment. Yes - it is a difficult step. What I am trying to do is just reduce my workload to a more reasonable amount and reassess as time goes on.

Anyway - thanks for the thoughtful comment!

Thanks for adding me to your network, David. I am happy to add you to mine as well.

Thank you for the like on a comment that I made.

Christmas... What an amazing time of year. I have no idea when He came (it was 2000 years ago. Time of year might be negotiable) but He came. There is no doubt about that.

As Chuck Colson said, And I paraphrase, He invaded us, He stepped down from Heaven quietly as a helpless baby, not as an army that invades Normandy. Yet, His invasion has had a far greater impact on this planet than most, if any of us can truly understand.

The best to you and your family this Christmas and an amazing New Year.

Wayne

I think I have all of Chuck Colson's books - he was a great man who lived a difficult yet I am sure fulfilled life.

Thanks for the kind words and the best to you and yours this wonderful Christmas season.

How right you are. I have seen too many people reach retirement age, live for 2 years and die. I am beyond that age myself. I will be 84 in April. Am semi handicap but am keeping going. With Gods help and staying active I am hoping for another 20. god bless you.

Great attitude. You have to fill retirement years with activity.

Those who sit at home and watch TV or play computer games all day do not live very long.

Hello there! Thanks so much for the follow. I've already read your blog post on Procrastination -- very insightful. I wish you nothing but success as you prepare for retirement.

Best of luck!

P.S. I hope you don't mind a few questions from me every now and again along the way.

Thanks so much for the follow - appreciate you so much.

I am trying to get ducks in a row for retirement - there is so much to do!

I can try to answer questions - or at least find somebody else who might know the answer.
