“Older Americans (and Canadians) Are Increasingly Unwilling–Or Unable–To Retire”

Linked article by Ina Jaffe for npr (national public radio)

https://www.npr.org/2019/10/02/751797229/the-new-realities-of-work-and-retirement?utm_source=pocket-newtab

This article is shared by me because I am one who never believed in retirement, but rather believe in living life to the fullest by doing work I love and therefore not wanting to stop, which I am finally doing as a writer, plus founder and president of a global initiative transforming respect from a discretionary value to a global principle–that will take more than the rest of my life–and will be passed on to the next generations to fulfill when I am gone.

“Homeless Man Starts Company, Becomes Rich, and Only Hires Other Homeless People”

His story inspires me to reconsider who I will hire/bring on as limited partners for my social business venture, Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle, when it is time. Perhaps the people I hire will be people who have experienced trauma and tragedy that they too have overcome as I have.

“Money Talk: She makes triple his salary”

“Peter: [Now that we’re married] we both have the same viewpoint on what we want to spend money on, and most of the time it’s not stuff, it’s experiences.”

“Vanessa: I haven’t made the comparison of how much disposable income or purchasing power I have now to buy things like shoes and bags vs. what I did when I was single. I want to say that it’s actually increased, at least that’s how it feels, because there’s just a financial benefit to being married. You’re spending as much money, or maybe more, if you’re cooking for one person than if you’re cooking for two. That’s where the savings really is. His additional $40,000 contributes to our pooled income, but we only need to buy one bedspread. That’s where it feels like both of our purchasing power has increased by combining our incomes.”

“The World’s Wealthiest Family Gets $4 Million Richer Every Hour”

https://www.bloomberg.com/features/richest-families-in-the-world/?utm_source=pocket-newtab

True wealth though is not about what one has, but about how one acquires financial wealth and what one does with it.
 
My own experience with wealthy people inspires me not to be like them or many of these folks listed in the following linked article. I remember how awful I felt working for such people and also how I felt when I took a trip to a severely impoverished country: I just couldn’t enjoy myself. Back then, it made me wonder how many of these people live as they do, but now I know how so I feel sorry for them and those they inspire to acquire wealth without heart.

“Self-Made Millionaires: This is the greatest paradox of wealth–and most people fail to recognize it”

It’s all about being willing to have an open mind in order to keep growing and expanding into a fuller life, rather than doing the same thing over and over again most of our lives, which Einstein defined as crazy when expecting different results.
