Why Do So Many People Die Soon After Retirement?

In a recent podcast my friend Dan Miller talked about retirement and what that means for most people.

I wanted to sum up a few points that are very applicable to my coaching clients, but the link is below if you like to listen to the entire thing.

 

  • He encourages people to have a 25 year plan that includes life beyond retirement.
  • Build a life with courage and not one of ease.
  • Most retirees say they want a life that’s stress free and predictable. Most of the time that just turns into a life that’s boring.
  • If you want a future that doesn’t require any type of courage, you’ll start to die.
  • By desiring a life of ease you’re telling your body, mind, and spirit that they really aren’t needed anymore, and they start to deteriorate. You’ve essentially given yourself a death sentence.
  • Despite good health, good finances so many people die a few years into retirement.
  • Many retirees suddenly find themselves with no friends, no money, and no purpose. You’ll have a tough time getting up in the morning if those three things are absent.
  • And again…No matter how old you are, be planning the next 25 years.

Boozing-Firemen-Got-Suspended

The correlation between retirement and sudden death seems to be higher in the career paths I work with. Folks in high stress/high risk occupations seldom adjust well to a life of ease after years of adrenaline loading and uniformed service.

That’s where I come in. I help those folks find second careers or retirement options that feed their life of courage.

Here’s the link to Dan’s podcast. I highly recommend it. It’s one of the few that I listen to every week.¬†Check into the 14 minute point for the section on retirement.

Life After the Uniform- US Military Vets are Fighting Sex Trafficking

Welcome to my series on Life After the Uniform. The goal of this series is to provide options and ideas as the main impetus of my coaching practice is helping men and women in high stress/high risk jobs find fulfilling second careers.

I’ve worked some with a human trafficking group called The Exodus Road, but nothing like this. I saw this news pop up recently about their efforts to engage military veterans in combating sex trafficking. I could say so much more about this myself, but I’ll let the experts at Exodus Road do it. Be sure to watch the videos they’ve posted.

If this seems like an area you might be interested in, be sure to contact them, and tell them Dr. Dave sent you.
