If you’re reading this, chances are you once had a dream to retire early. It could be when you were in your 40s, or even as early as your 30s.
For the majority of you, you probably had that dream when you were in your 20s. When you were much younger. When more opportunities seemed available to you.
When you dared to dream of retiring as early as 2 to 3 decades before the average Singaporean retirement age.
But alas, time flies by. Month after month, year after year. The clock never stopped ticking.
And today, you find yourself in your 40s and 50s. You’re probably married with children by now. Some of you may even have children who are about to go to university.
Yet, the retirement “goal post” still seems far away.
“Why? What happened? HOW did it happen?”
These are questions most of my clients had when they first met me. Clients who are around your age group.
When I asked them when they intended to retire, most of them told me they wanted to do so earlier. Much earlier.
And with that answer, most of them started to relay their regrets to me. Regrets over their past decisions. In their careers. In their families. In their lives.
But it’s not too late.
Today, I’m writing to you not to talk about all the “what if”s. All the “what could have been”s.
Today, I want to talk to you about what you can do NOW.
Because my friend, I’d like to make an important statement:
Missing your intended retirement age is NOT the end.
No. It is only the end when you give up on planning for it.
If you could spare the next 5-7 minutes, I’d love to share 2 things with you:
1. The REAL reason why over 90% of Singaporeans did not manage to retire at the age they intended
2. HOW you can do to speed up your retirement process right now
Sounds good? Great! Let’s move on…
