Retirement obstacles that are self-imposed

Stop and think about the following items and how they may be affecting your ability to save for retirement.

  • Your clothing costs for work...appearances
  • Your costs for commuting to work
  • New cars for appearances
  • Club dues, professional association fees
  • Vacation costs, you splurge with only two weeks off the year
  • Entertainment and dining

Now let's take the same parameters from a retirement aspect...

Have you examined these retirement obstacles?

Can you see how maintaining appearances at work, and with your peer group, costs a lot of money.

Go back and look over your expenses that you incur from the first list... you may want to sit down first.

Now compare how much you can save by adhering to living by the second list...

Now think about you trading your young energetic years for a shorter retirement when you're older.

Retirement obstacles, can you now see that many are self-imposed?

Would not you rather be enjoying yourself like this fellow... or lady.

He or she can use this equipment every day they so choose.
