The notion of retirement is an insidious virus that has found its way into our subconscious to persuade us to act against our best interests.
We believe that no one should feel compelled to retire; no one should want to retire. Yes, you may need to rearrange your life to suit changing circumstances and requirements but there is no room for the view that you should stop and vegetate.
Retirement is a notion that should be banished from all sensible conversation.
We are programmed for the nightmare of retirement from the day we start our first job. And to actively plan for that momentous day! That’s what society does to each and every one of us. Consigns us to a living death. We are conditioned to believe that on a certain date our lives will cease to have meaning. We will become valueless and be ordered to stop. And we will obey. How dare they!
More to the point. Why are any of us so silly as to go along with this abject nonsense?
Our primary single goal is to highlight the false construct and enable you to delete this insidious virus from your system. To remove ‘retirement’ from your vocabulary. To get your life back and enjoy yourself.
As of now you have permission to eradicate ‘retirement’ from your vocabulary. Delete it from the software of your mind. Drag it kicking and screaming to the trash. That’s it. Retirement gone forever.
Never again will you mention the dreaded word. It simply isn’t going to happen. You are going to keep on living.
The end is not nigh. The end is irrelevant. What is important is to live life to the full, every day. Until the end.
and Stay Alive
