It’s an excellent article.
It’s all too easy to not recognize that your life is a result of choices that you’ve made. Most people also don’t understand that their attitude is a choice. Unfortunately, too many people don’t plan for the future and end up having to work in the years where they could be taking it easy.

I would also like to add that our government isn’t helping in that area in that people now have to work longer to retire at full benefits through no fault of their own. That kinda stinks too. But yes, I agree that having the right attitude helps in almost all of life’s circumstances and we can choose to have a good attitude.

This is a good point Mike and I agree. I do believe if you plan wisely then you won’t have to be dependent on the government. In my preparations I did not look for my job or the government to help me out when I retire. I thought How can I support myself on my own without assistance.
I know of one woman that had to come out of retirement because she did not plan wisely. She did not make a lot of money but simple things like buying lunches when she could have made them ate up her money tiny chunks at a time. The money she used on lunches could have gone into wise investments. She could have put in tiny chunks at a time.
I started investing even back in the day when I was making less than $9 per hour.
