How 3 Simple Questions Can Help You Retire at Lake Chapala

October 22, 2011

Have you ever been frustrated and angry about something in your life not turning out just like you had hoped. Well, join the club. As the song goes, “That’s Life”. We all have disappointments.

One definition of disappointment is “The feeling of dissatisfaction that follows a failure of expectations to manifest.”
Regret is a form of disappointment too, and focuses primarily on personal choices contributing to a poor outcome, while a person feeling disappointment focuses on the outcome.
Read this inspiring summary of the first 50 years of Abraham Lincoln’s life and see my conclusion.
  • At the age of 7, his family was forced out of their home, so he worked to help support his parents.
  • At the age of 9 his mother died.
  • At the age of 21 he failed in business..
  • At the age of 22 he ran for the legislature, lost his job, and was turned down for law school.
  • At the age of 23 he started another business on borrowed money, by age 24 was bankrupt.
  • At the age of 25 he was engaged to be married and his fiancé died.
  • At the age of 26 he had a nervous breakdown and was in bed for six months.
  • At the age of 28 he was defeated as speaker of the state legislature.
  • At the age of 33 he ran for congress and lost.
  • At the age of 38 he ran for congress again and lost.
  • At the age of 44 he ran for the US Senate and lost.
  • At the age of 46 he tried for his parties Vice President nomination. He received less than 100 votes and lost.
  • At the age of 48 he ran for the US Senate again, and lost.
  • At the age of 50, he was elected as the 16th President of the United States!
Now, I’m not asking you to have the fortitude of an Abraham Lincoln, I just want to inspire you with his story and help to give you the resolve to overcome whatever it might be that’s holding you back from moving forward with your dream of a Lake Chapala Retirement.
1.    What’s really keeping you from relocating to Lake Chapala?
2.    What innovative creative things Can You Do to Move Forward?
3.    What can Sid do to help?
The truth is you can deal in a constructive innovative way with whatever it is that’s holding you back.
It’s your choice. I just want to help if, when, and how I can.  
Siempre tu amigo,
