19 Sep Success strategies for women over 50
Remember when turning 50 meant it’s time to begin considering retirement and start slowing down your pace of life? Well, yeah, that way of thinking is now a thing of the past.
Women of today are using the second half of their life to do more than ever before. After all, times have changed. No longer is there a slow lane. Life after 50 doesn’t mean it’s time to hang it up and learn cribbage (though we’re not knocking cribbage).
Whether you take examples like Kathryn Joosten or Nina Zagat, turning 50 doesn’t mean it’s time to hang up your hat and call it a day. In fact, it means it’s a whole new day!
The modern woman considers their years building up to 50 as merely a series of waypoints leading to even greater success later in life. Still, that doesn’t mean reaching new levels of success after 50 is easy.
It’s important to ensure you have a support group – a sisterhood, if you will – to confide in and be accountable to as you try to be your best. Have a network behind you, influencers who know who to talk to and how to open doors.
Even as you accumulate a sisterhood, shed that which you don’t need. We accumulate so much over our lives, but how much of what we gather is truly vital to our success? Whether it’s junk cluttering your home or doubt cluttering your mind, get rid of it.
In the end, with hard work, perseverance, and the right support network, you’ll be set up to take on your next greatest challenge. And this time, with so much more life experience under your belt, you’ll be able to savor the flavor like never before.
