As we age, life events can sometimes leave us feeling lost, lonely, and without purpose. It can feel like time is running out, and we've missed opportunities for growth and fulfillment. But it's never too late to embrace a new era of feeling on track, finding joy in the simple things, and unlocking your full potential.
In your 60s, there's a world of beauty, possibility, and joy waiting for you. This is a time for reflection, for reassessing what's important, and for setting new goals. It's a time to embrace your life experience and wisdom and use it to guide you on your journey.
So, how do you tap into this wealth of potential? That's where life coaching comes in. A life coach can provide support, encouragement, and guidance as you navigate this next chapter in your life. They can help you identify your goals, and create a roadmap for achieving them. They can also help you overcome any obstacles that may be holding you back, and help you build the skills and confidence you need to succeed.
As a life coach, I have seen firsthand the positive impact that coaching can have on individuals in their 60s. I have watched my clients experience a renewed sense of purpose, find joy in their daily lives, and build meaningful relationships. The symptoms of happiness are everywhere – a spring in your step, a smile on your face, and a renewed sense of excitement for life.
So, if you're ready to move into this new era of spiritual growth and happiness, it's time to take action. Call me today, and let's start the journey together. You'll be amazed at what you can achieve, and the beauty that surrounds you. It's time to unlock your full potential and live the life you've always dreamed of."
Life skills coaching for people in their 60s
I have worked with many people in their sixties. The kinds of challenges that we can take a good look at include...
- Maintaining physical and mental health
- Navigating aging and health concerns
- Dealing with loneliness and social isolation
- Managing finances
- Balancing caregiving responsibilities
- Dealing with the loss of a spouse
- Maintaining independence
- Pursuing personal interests and hobbies
- Preparing for later life and end-of-life planning
- Navigating the challenges of aging and declining health.
What purposeful expression (they used to call it a career) should you pursue in your latter phase of life? What will you do with your leisure time? What is your heart's desire? What leisure pursuit will fuel this same fire? What location will best facilitate it? And with who? Where will you live?
All of these questions can be answered best by taking a good look at your Passions.
Very often all that is needed to get happy is to align with our own Happiness Compass. I can help you align with YOUR happiness compass.
For the first half of your life, people tell you what you should do; for the second half, they tell you what you should have done. (R Needham)
The oldest person I have coached so far is 77 (we'll call her sixty-something) and we had a joyful and effective working relationship.
Perhaps you are up for a different, youthful, insightful, spiritual perspective on what you should be doing with your golden years. Feel free to get in touch to explore if I can help you! or if not I hope you enjoy the following inspirational story!
The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to look around, when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with smile that lit up her entire being.
She said, "Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I'm 87 years old. Can I give you a hug?"
I laughed and enthusiastically responded, "Of course you may!", and she gave me a giant squeeze.
"Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?" I asked.
She jokingly replied, "I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, have a couple of kids..."
"No seriously," I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.
"I always dreamed of having a college education and now I'm getting one!" she told me.
After class, we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake. We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this "time machine" as she shared her wisdom and experience with me. Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.
At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I'll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her 3 x 5 cards on the floor. Frustrated and a little embarrassed, she leaned into the microphone and simply said, "I'm sorry I'm so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order, so let me just tell you what I know."
As we laughed, she cleared her throat and began, "We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humour every day. You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even know it! There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are 19 years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn 20 years old. If I am 87 years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything, I will turn 88." "Anybody can grow OLDER. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding the opportunity in change. Have no regrets. The elderly usually don't have regrets about what we did, but rather about things they did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets." She concluded her speech by courageously singing "The Rose." She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives. At the year's end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago. One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep.
Over 2,000 college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it's never too late to be all you can possibly be. When you finish reading this, please send this peaceful word of to your friends and family, they'll really enjoy it! These words have been passed along in the loving memory of ROSE.
REMEMBER: GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL. We make a Living by what we get; we make a Life by what we give. We are what we want to be and we make our life the way we want it.

As we age, it's natural to question our purpose and our place in the world. This is a time for deep reflection and spiritual growth. Conversations with God, the best-selling book by Neale Donald Walsch, offers insights and wisdom that can help guide us on this journey.
Here are three quotes from the book that can provide comfort and inspiration for those in their 60s:
"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
"The purpose of life is to awaken to your own divinity and then to live it."
"The journey to the kingdom of heaven is the journey to the understanding of love."
These quotes remind us that it's never too late to pursue our dreams, awaken our own inner wisdom, and understand the power of love. They offer a reminder that our journey is ongoing, and that there are always opportunities for growth and self-discovery."
