On Monday, September 5 Categories:

I was cleaning up some files on my old computer that usually sits gathering dust in our spare room when I came across an interesting little piece on how things have changed, particularly in recent years. The piece was about a woman and her grandson talking and the woman finished with the following words:

In my day:
"grass" was mowed,
"coke" was a cold drink,
"pot" was something your mother cooked in and
"rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.
"Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,
"gay" meant you were happy
"chip" was a piece missing out of a teacup
"hardware" was found in a hardware store and
"software" wasn't even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap... and how old do you think I am?

Answer: She was born in 1947 (a baby boomer!!!) and turned 63 in 2010!!!

Ignoring the fact she must have lived in a convent during the 1960s and 70s our not so fictitious grandma is actually part of that generation that makes up about one-third of the US population that has control over two-thirds the wealth in the country! There are more than 1 billion of us throughout the world. (Yes, I'm a boomer)

This little story only tends to highlight the massive changes that have taken place within the lifespan of what is now becoming the senior generation in our world. In this no-longer-innocent world of constant change we need to be on top of things more than ever before in the history of humankind. Yet all we have to fall back on are the resources we have always had. However, those resources, fully realized, are more than enough for you to live your ultimate life.
Unfortunately most of us never realize the potential we have. As a result we never ever develop what it takes to live well-adjusted, healthy, fulfilled lives. What a waste!

There are enough clues scattered around. There have been countless words written on the topic, but it is only when people hit some sort of crisis point in their lives that they become motivated enough to do something about changing themselves.

That is the key. Living the Ultimate Life is a great goal to have, but it is the person you become in the process that makes life so much better. In fact I would go so far as to say that for most who are living their ultimate life, if you took away all the trappings, they would still be fulfilled. They could, almost magically it seems, get it all back again with no real apparent effort.

I can say that quite confidently because I have seen it happen time and time again. So whether you do it for the person you will become, or you just like the idea of living the life you want, you owe it to yourself and to those with whom you associate to pursue your Ultimate Life.
