Find your passions and purpose in retirement
Find your purpose.
Everybody needs a reason to get out of bed in the morning, but this is especially important in retirement, when there is little structure in your day. Having a purpose means you are engaging in meaningful activities. Your purpose guides your life decisions. The first step in finding your purpose is to find your passions, but it’s much more than that. Your life purpose is your contribution to the world. Perhaps your life purpose is to help others or to help your family. Your life purpose may be to create beautiful music or to bring joy to other people. Finding your purpose is about identifying those activities which you are not only passionate about but which make you feel fulfilled.
Once you have identified your passions and purpose, you are in the best possible place to start your financial plan, which will guide you in how to allocate your financial resources to support your goals.
