A healthy mindset is crucial when you are starting over or even starting your second half! Don’t let the “not good enough” or “imposter syndrome” take over! At every stage you should be engaged and intentional. Life Reimagined by Barbara Bradley Hagerty is a great book to read. Don’t stop thinking about the future and keep up with current events. Read, garden and take time for you!
Denise Park, neuroscientist at the University of Texas says, “You’ve reached a stage in your life where you have both cognitive resource—that is speed and memory, and at the same time, knowledge, experience and judgment.” She asserts that it’s the most efficient, effective time of your life! This should be such an encouragement for those at the halftime of life! Most are focusing on happiness and satisfaction to enjoy every day as Father Time moves quickly on.
Affirm your valuable network as well as transferable skills and experience. Then, don’t be afraid of making a change, but also embrace your limitations! You can hire those areas out! A quality coach could be one of your very best investments as you face your second half. Don't hesitate to start--you are worth it!
