Happy New Year my friends. This beautiful year is just a blank slate waiting for you to put your special imprint on it. One of my coaches sent me this, and I wanted to share it with all of you because this is the year of no excuses and no waiting for the perfect time. The Time is Now! I changed a few things to make it more relevant to our midlife mission, but I want you to know that I believe in you, I believe in us, and together we are unstoppable. Don’t let your past trauma, failures, and unsupportive family members keep you from having the best year of your life.
Enjoy and take action
I want to talk about your IMPACT.
IN MIDLIFE Life comes down to two things:
#1: Who did you have the courage and audacity to become?
Were you brave?
Were you genuinely excellent in everything you did?
Did you live with authenticity?
Were you following your own values and truth?
#2: How many people did you help?
How much value did you create?
How many people did you profoundly impact?
The bottom line?
YOU must believe in YOU.
Because the world needs to see your mastery. The world needs you to transform lives.
And the world needs you to TAKE ACTION…
…even when things are scary and uncertain.
Don’t give up on your vision and ambition.
No matter what.
GO ALL IN.
Commit to NO EXCUSES.
Because beneath every excuse is a FEAR.
But beneath every ELITE athlete, professional career woman and thought leader…
…is the strength to PERSEVERE.
Bravery is a muscle.
Creativity is a muscle.
Mastery is a muscle.
Use it or lose it.
So, if you want to 2x your IMPACT…
You need to 2x the investment in yourself. Your education. Your business.
When you know more, you can produce more, and you can achieve more.
STILL do not believe me.
Then start believing in YOURSELF.
Because you give yourself what you feel you deserve.
If you do not feel you deserve greatness, you will find ways to sabotage yourself.
So if you are not getting what you deserve…
Think about this:
Are you getting in your own way?
Are you struggling to be and do what you are made to do?
Are you spinning your wheels?
Maybe it’s time to give yourself what you TRULY deserve.
Be better. Be amazing. Be LEGENDARY.
Stop w-a-i-t-i-n-g for the perfect story. Or the “perfect” timing.
Other people deserve to hear your story. Other people deserve to have your help.
You were MADE for this.
Step up to the plate. It is your time.

Older workers have been called names at work like old school, geezer, or grandpa, but many do not report these offenses for fear of rocking the boat and missing out on a promotion. But there are tools you can use to protect yourself against this type of discrimination. Your first step is to make sure that you are doing something you still enjoy, this is part of your mindful self-care strategy.
Keep abreast of new technological advances, if you need to, take a class at the local community college or library. Technology is here to stay, and we, as Midlifers, must be prepared to show that we understand it and can apply in our current or future positions.
Create your own gig, use your gifts and talents to finally start the business you have dreamt of, and become your own boss. Even if you are not ready to quit your job, having another stream of income will give you financial security and possibly replace your full-time income.
Get fit, we would like to think that our appearance does not matter, but the truth is that we are continuously judged by the way we look. Increase your self-care, workout, eat healthy food, and spend some quiet time mindfully thinking about your goals and dreams. Getting fit and increasing your self-care will boost your confidence and improve your attitude.
You might face an uphill battle when it comes to fighting age discrimination in your workplace. If you feel that you have been unjustly discriminated against, document the offense, and reach out to your HR department. If your HR department is not able to handle the matter to your satisfaction, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) is your next line of defense against age discrimination. This is a federal law that says an employer cannot fire, refuse to hire, or treat you differently than other employees because of your age.
The world may be changing, and others may forget, but you must always know your value!

There was a time when you joined a company, you were expected to stay in their employ until you retired. But, that is no longer the case, especially as the pandemic continues to force companies to close or drastically reduced their workforce. Even in these unprecedented times, you must see your choice of career as a way of engaging in your self-care. Doing work that you love and find purposeful can be instrumental in helping you to reduce your stress. “Living in a world of ‘always on’ culture can wreak havoc on you physically, emotionally, and spiritually,” Amy Blaschka says in Forbes. “Constantly grinding leads to burnout, anxiety, and stress-related illnesses.”
So, what do you do when you want to change careers in midlife? It can be very disheartening seeking a new career path or even a new job within the same field when you a midlife woman. It can seem as though your experience and education are overlooked as employers seek to hire younger, less experienced, and less costly staff. But, there are things that you can do to ensure that you get the position you want.
Make sure that you running to something, rather than away from something. If you are miserable in your current position, you may gravitate towards anything that looks better. However, there are more beneficial ways to decide.
Any exit looks good when the building is on fire. You will be more likely to be happy with your career change if you take the time to choose the best field for you. The more you dislike your current job, the more critical it is to take a deep breath and examine all your options.
Avoid a career decision based on financial considerations. Of course, salary is a part of the decision-making process, but using it as the sole criteria can yield disappointing results. Money, even a large amount, probably will not make up for spending 8+ hours a day in misery at your job.
Midlife is not the time to take on more stress as stress tends to have more health issues, which are expensive, too.
Do not be averse to obtaining the necessary training and education first. Midlife is not the time to stop learning, do not try to change careers without updating your skills, and having the required credentials in place. You might look at volunteering or becoming a temporary employee to get the necessary experience. This will also help you to ascertain if this is the move you want to take.
When you begin the search, be sure to show yourself some self-compassion. Network with colleagues in your new field and ask for an introduction or referral. Do not practice negative self-talk; this will only delay your progress, speak kindly to yourself, and surround yourself with a nourishing support system.
Ladies, I hope you enjoyed today’s show. Remember that just because you are in midlife does not mean you have to continue doing something you no longer love. Be encouraged, and let your passion be your guide. Do not forget to share this podcast with someone you love and
