  1. How to Prevent Self-Sabotage and Reach a New Level of Success over 50

    Comment
    “Each of us has an inner thermostat setting that determines how much love, success, and creativity we allow ourselves to enjoy. When we exceed our inner thermostat setting, we will often do something to sabotage ourselves, causing us to drop back into the old, familiar zone where we feel secure.”  Gay Hendricks   Age is no barrier to success, but at times your biggest obstacle to success is yourself. The rest of the world is too busy to actively get in your way. That’s great news! If your lack of success is your fault, you can take steps to address the situation.   There are a variety of ways you sabotage yourself. You procrastinate, think negatively, and have other harmful habits. As Walt Kelly once said,...

    Comment
    Life expectancy has increased gradually over the past century and recent data has shown that women currently live an average of 87.2 years compared to 84.3 years for men. Reassured are passionate about life insurance, such as family and over 60 life insurance and wanted to find out more about what potential factors can impact life expectancy.

Does marriage increase or decrease life expectancy? Although women currently have a greater average life expectancy than men, marriage actually bridges the gap with the life expectancy increasing for a married man, whereas it is the opposite for women. ...
  3. Why you may become more introverted in your later years and how to recharge successfully

    Comment
    Article by Joanna Rawbone As an introverted female business owner in my ‘later years’, this topic had me intrigued from the outset. How true is it? Had I ever stopped to ponder this? Well, I have now! I know that many women report feeling more invisible as they get older, and I wonder if that indicates a vicious circle?  I feel less visible, so I’ll retreat more to save myself from the pain of invisibility.  Certainly Susan Cain, author of the bestselling introvert’s ‘bible’ Quiet, confirms that “We act more introverted as we get older.” Act and be are 2 different things though Notice that Cain uses the word ‘act’.  It is important to differentiate between behaving in a more introverted way and being more introverted.  The difference may...
  4. Harnessing your Superpowers over 50 with Claire Walton

    Comment
    Article by Claire Walton I’m 52 and a high-performance coach working with Executive Directors, Senior leaders, and entrepreneurs. I have held all these roles. My main role in life now is to share what I have learned and to help others stop getting in the way of their Highest Potential Self (HPS). I recently published a global bestselling book, ‘Super Neuro You’ to make accessible to anyone some of what I do to help clients. I used to stress about getting old. At age 21 I remember telling some middle-aged women I would rather die than reach age 50. Not only was this insensitive but also very ignorant and sad. That said, I celebrated my 50th Birthday on a 2-week holiday in America with my daughter and my best...
  5. How To Make The Most Of Your Life Over Fifty

    Comment
        Do you think that youth is important? Do you feel like you had the time of your life when you were young but that those opportunities are now behind you? Then it’s time to change your mindset. Because life is very much what you make of it and thinking that your younger years were the best is an outdated attitude to have. At 50 most of us have more adult years ahead of than behind us. The best may yet be to come! There is more to life than memories or reminiscing. And there’s plenty of time for you to do so much more with your life and make further memories – whether you’re fifty, seventy or ninety!   In fact,...
  6. Wendy asks: Is becoming invisible over 50 similar to becoming a Stepford Wife?

    Comment
    Article by Wendy Reichental I remember watching The Stepford Wives, the 1975 version, now considered a cult classic, and was absolutely obsessed with it. It starred Katharine Ross as the doe-eyed, intuitive and devoted Mrs. Joanna Eberhart. The movie’s plotline follows Joanna as a budding photographer, wife and mother who at her husband’s insistence agrees to uproot their family from the grime and grind of big city life to a Norman Rockwell-style Utopian suburb of Stepford, Connecticut. First impressions are paramount. It’s not long before Joanna suspects that something is amiss among these beguiling, housecleaning obsessed robot-like women of Stepford. Following the rules of society The phrase “Stepford wife” has now become part of our vernacular. It epitomizes somebody with a perfect facade who obediently follows the accepted rules of society. Since being recently...
  7. Energy is ageless! Manifesting success, love and more after 50!

    Comment
    Article by Esther McCann a.k.a. missmanifesther If there’s one thing lockdown has done, it’s opened people up to nurturing their mindset because they’re recognising that their emotional wellbeing is just as important as their physical health. In addition to wellness practices like mindfulness and meditation, manifestation has emerged as a leading mindset and spiritual vehicle for living a positive life and creating the reality you want. Even in a pandemic! For those who are unfamiliar with the Law of Attraction (LOA), it’s the basic principle that like attracts like, that what we believe about ourselves we become, and what we keep focusing on (good or bad) “manifests” in our reality. For example, when you seem to be spiralling and it’s one thing after another vs when...

  10. Feeling Stuck in a Rut? Try These Tips and Tricks to Break Free

    Comment
      Sometimes life is plodding along nicely, and then one day you wake up and realise that you are bored. It is so easy to get into the habit of following the same routine every day that you may not even realise that it is happening. As we grow older, we tend to settle into routines, and life tends to throw up fewer surprises than it did when we were younger. Before too long, your life can feel like groundhog day, and you may feel unsure how to claw your way out of the rut that you find yourself in. This can feel like a deeply frustrating situation, and you may choose to carry on as usual and bury these feelings of dissatisfaction in the...
