Over 90% of all retired Americans will be forced to live on less than $12,000 a year!

Yes, I have to admit it. I am an aging Baby Boomer! Our first grandchild was born last year. Does it make me feel older? Not necessarily. It’s all a matter of outlook and attitude to life.

O.K. Physically I’m starting to get some ofrepparttar aches and pains that come withrepparttar 135568 aging process. But mentally I’m still in my mid-twenties. (Sometimes a heck of a lot younger, so my Wife often tells me!)

The 1960’s covered my mid-teens and mid-twenties. What a great era that was in England (where I was born and raised – we have been living in Canada since 1981.) Would you believe I sawrepparttar 135569 Rolling Stones in concert before they hitrepparttar 135570 big time! They had just released their first record.

Ah yes. Life was simpler then. Life was sweet. No home computers, no cell phones, no Internet. But now, of course we have all of these things and take them for granted. Especially computers andrepparttar 135571 Internet.

Never before in history has it been possible for so many people to have their own home business using these powerful tools.

This truly isrepparttar 135572 age of mass communication and information sharing.

The question is, have us Baby Boomers been left behind in this huge technological wake? Have we missedrepparttar 135573 boat?

I believerepparttar 135574 answer to this is an emphatic “NO!”

Like I said, growing up inrepparttar 135575 sixties was great. Retirement was a lifetime away. But, my friend, lifetime has a nasty habit of passing by all too quickly. Believe me, I know!

So we live our lives, enjoying each day that comes (or at least trying to), still thinking that retirement is a long way off. After all, there’srepparttar 135576 mortgage to pay; a new car would be nice; we could really do with a vacation this year;repparttar 135577 kitchen could do with a makeover. And then it hits you like a ton of bricks. The milestone of your 60’th birthday is creeping up REALLY fast … TOO fast.

Business Career, Executive Coaching Article - The Top 10 Tips to Begin the Practice of Positive Affirmations

Written by Ruth Zanes

Positive Affirmations are things we say to ourselves that build us up and make us strong. They empower us to take chances and to be our best. Thoughts run through our mind thousands of times a day and are often negative. Making positive affirmations a daily practice gives you a powerful tool to strengthen your inner foundation and follow your bliss.

1. Get over feeling funny. Doing something new takes practice and because it is unfamiliar it might feel funny at first. Get over it. So often, it doesn't feel funny to talk negatively to ourselves, but praise feels awkward. Just do it and don't worry if it feels funny. In time, you will feel less and less awkward.

2. Begin your affirmation with "I." The more you personalize what you sayrepparttar more it will hit home and stick.

3. Put your affirmation inrepparttar 135510 present tense. Keepingrepparttar 135511 statement inrepparttar 135512 present will give it more power. Avoid can, will, could or should in your statements.

4. Make it short and sweet. Makerepparttar 135513 affirmation meaningful to you. If affirmations are too long, you may find it cumbersome or difficult to say on a regular basis. Longer affirmations work well during meditative moments.
