3. A Reason to Wake Up in the Morning

The Secret to Early Retirement!

Depressed people often have a very hard time getting up in the morning. Why is that? Ask any depressed person and they will most likely tell you that they have no reason to get up. They most likely don’t have anything to do that day but probably feel that even if they did have something to do, it would still be meaningless in the big scheme of things.

Successful people on the other hand, often feel a strong sense of mission and purpose. They are clear on their mission and are totally committed to doing whatever it takes to get there.

I once asked a famous psychologist if he enjoyed his job. He was busy seeing patients more than 12 hours a day and barely had any time to rest, so I figured he must enjoy it. Nonetheless, when he heard my question he stared at me as if I was from Mars.

“What job?” he asked with utter seriousness. “I’m retired. This is my life.”

To him, helping people wasn’t a job. It was life itself: his raison d'être - his purpose in life. He didn’t have time to relax. He had a mission to do and he loved every moment.

There is nothing as pleasurable and fulfilling as doing what you’re here to do. When people are living their life’s purpose they are truly alive. They are inspired with a sense of drive and passion that propels them to use every moment to its fullest to fulfill their mission. Being unclear of your purpose, or doing something that is antithetical to it, on the other hand, saps your energy and will to live. Can you honestly claim that you are living a life you love?

Everyone wants to live a life of vitality and drive. If you love what you do, you never have to retire. Get ready to start living!
