With the parties, dancing and hanging out with friends far and near behind me, I can’t help but get a bit introspective as I glance backward. So many great times, adventures, and people have come in and out of my life.
It seems surreal. I still think of myself as 30 and catch myself having to remember I’m not – although the mirror provides a really good reality check! I’m pleased that at 50 I still don’t hold back at the gym (even though my knees are a little cranky at times).
I’ve been in the financial services industry for over 15 years. This means 30% of my life has been spent coaching people about money, building wealth and protecting themselves from the hiccups that happen along the way. I’ve met with hundreds of clients, peeked behind the curtains if you will, and have seen patterns of behavior that accelerate the growth of wealth and some that absolutely don’t.
I’ve noted attitudes and patterns around money in myself as well. If there’s one thing 50 years has taught me, it’s that I’m not perfect. Like everyone, I’ve made mistakes with some of my own money choices.
So… since I keep thinking I’m 30, with the wisdom of 50… I like to imagine what my 50-year-old self would tell my 30-year-old self now that I have all those financial service lessons under my belt.
Unfortunately, I can’t actually go back in time and benefit from the hard-learned lessons I received and witnessed over the past 15 years. But maybe those lessons can help you now!
