|The news is a weird animal. There has to be a couple of guys somewhere deciding what we get to see and what they want us to remain oblivious to.
Did you read about the riots and protests in France yesterday?
Probably not because it’s barely being reported. To me, over a million people taking to the streets of Paris to overthrow their government is a pretty big deal.
Why are all the people of France angry? Because Macron raised the retirement age from 62 to 64. The problem is if they don’t do something the government is going to run out of money.
The last time the French government ran out of money they solved it with revolution and a guillotine.
Do you know what the retirement age in the US is? It’s 67.
Think about that for a minute. Who wants to be working until they’re 67? I sure don’t. At least, I don’t want to be forced to work that long. I love working probate and coaching students. I can see myself doing that for a very long time.
But doing what you want, when you want is a very special gift. You don’t need to listen to any government tell you when you can retire.
If you can figure out how to master a niche in real estate, you get to make all of your own decisions. A slave to no one.
Don’t settle for ordinary. Be extraordinary. The world needs a hero. Are you willing to answer the call?
To your success,
