What does living the millionaire lifestyle mean to you?
No stress, doing what you love, spending your time how you choose, living where you want, traveling?
It’s another gorgeous day here in Cabo and the mornings are now warm enough that I can take my laptop upstairs to the rooftop patio to write to you. I’m watching a cruise ship come in now. I love where I live!
I think you could say that I live the millionaire lifestyle. The majority of my friends are millionaires, but money has never been a big motivator for me. I’m happy as long as the lack of funds doesn’t prevent me from having the life I choose.
How about you?
The interesting thing is, many of the women speakers on Your Ageless Life and Business Telesummit had been millionaires and got it back again. Some didn’t care about that and still don’t. Everyone has different goals and priorities in life and there is no one right answer.
When you’re creating an ageless life and business, the millionaire lifestyle doesn’t have to be a dream for someday. You can live the lifestyle without being a millionaire because the lifestyle isn’t all about the money. It’s about the choices you make of how you want to live. It’s true.
You do not have to be a millionaire to live like one.
If you choose to live a lifestyle of downsizing and having more simplicity, great.
If you want a lifestyle that allows you to travel the world and enjoy fine dining and the rest of what life has to offer, that is possible for you too.
Popular belief is that you need to make big money first and then that allows you to buy the great lifestyle. And, of course, lots of money buys lots of things.
But, it’s equally true that by consciously designing your life before you have all that cash, you can start living large right now. One of the reasons this is possible is this…
For about 40 years now I have been consciously creating the blueprint for my life and helping others do the same. Over that long period of time, the economics of my life have shifted from time to time, like most people’s have.
Living the millionaire lifestyle at 25
The one thing that has been consistent is my lifestyle. There were times, like 1981 when I lived in Ft. Myers, FL and the real estate economy tanked. All the real estate sales I had pending collapsed and so did my income. And yet even though I wasn’t working for a few months I was going to Long Boat Key in Sarasota, staying at a luxury resort and drinking Dom Perignon at the Long Boat Key Club most nights.
And I was 25 years old! I’m not telling you this to brag, I want to make a point. I’ve always been reluctant to talk too much about my lifestyle, maybe it’s my midwestern roots, But I think it’s important to give you examples to show you how anybody can do this. And you can do it right now, even if your personal economy is not your best friend at the moment.
Can you imagine being 25, single, living in a state with no family, unemployed and instead of being in a total state of panic, living the high life? And yet I had the confidence to do that because I was already very clear in my life blueprint. That plan allowed me to find a way to still live the life of my dreams even when I wasn’t working and had no idea how long the real estate market was going to be in the tank.
I was able to do all kinds of things that your average 25-year-old would never even dream were possible for them. And I was living a better lifestyle than people who had 10 times the income that I did. So money is definitely not the only factor.
For decades I have studied the differences between happy people and unhappy people, successful people and unsuccessful people and people with tons of money and those who have less. The one thing I’ve found is that money is not, I repeat NOT, the main ingredient to creating the life of your dreams. Clarity, focus and having a plan, a blueprint, are the main ingredients to living the life of your dreams today.
Besides leafing through The Robb Report, Architectural Digest or other magazines, and dreaming, what action are you taking to map out exactly what you want your life to look like when you have achieved your ageless lifestyle?
The point is, what are you doing to create that lifestyle today?
What? Did I hear you saying, “Nothing”?
That’s OK because I can guarantee you it’s the same answer at least 80% of people you would ask would give!
I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to wait to hit some magic number to live the rock star exciting life or the quiet zen life, or the life where you get to spend days on end focused on your kids or grandkids. It’s your life, you decide what the most amazing life of your dreams looks like to you.
The first step is getting a clear focus on the real life you want to have, not the day-dream picture of a fantasy, that when it comes down to it, doesn’t really appeal to you at all.
And once you know exactly what your idea of ‘the life of your dreams’ is, you create a step-by-step blueprint for creating it right now. The most amazing part is that over and over again I find the minute you have that clarity and you see your own blueprint in front of you, the rest comes pretty easily if you let it.
In fact, most of my clients find they can start living the life of their dreams right now, incrementally and that more and more of it manifests almost effortlessly in some totally surprising ways.
If you need some help getting started living the good life on your terms, I’m here to help. Your ageless and business can be the life you live the day you figure out exactly what you want it to be.
What do you want?
For some, the focus of their ageless millionaire lifestyle is on being able to contribute to the world now that they have a comfortable nest egg. Others feel it’s about creating a business that allows them to express their life passion. Some think it’s about kicking back and enjoying the fruits of their labors and traveling the world. For others it’s about downsizing, scaling back on the material things so they don’t need to work so much and have time to focus on getting to know who they really are.
Everyone is different, and you get to decide what works for you. And even that will ebb and flow and could change completely over time. That’s one good thing about living an ageless lifestyle after 50, it’s all about what makes your heart sing and fulfills your soul. Nothing has to be carved in stone.
For example, 6 years ago I made the decision to move back to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was a spur of the moment decision and kind of, “why not?”. That’s exactly the same way I had ended up living down here in the 90’s. Living that way could send some people into a panic attack, but I like it. I enjoy living a life that is always subject to change.
Then I made the decision to close my business because I could feel my passion shifting. So I lived a modest lifestyle while I wasn’t working. It allowed me to have a great place on the ocean and take the time I needed for myself. I was able to focus on the next phase of my business and my life. Which brought me to start Ageless Lifestyle After 50, doing much of what I was doing in my business before, but with an added focus on my personal passion for health, nutrition and disease prevention added into the mix. My passion refocused, it was time to get back to work.
