The horse (Mariska) in this video has been dubbed â€śHoudini Horseâ€ť. Whatâ€™s not like about a horse or anyone elseâ€™s desire for freedom?
The lust for freedomÂ is a natural yearning programmed right into the core of our DNA. Over time life experiences such as raising a family and career may have dulled this desire. However, I donâ€™t think the desire to be free and do what you want on your own schedule ever goes away.
When I am asked â€śWhat is number one motivation to retire?â€ť The soon to be retirees I work with expressÂ a desire to get off the treadmill, stop producing for someone else, travel when they want or to simply reassert control of their daily schedule. Everyone who works has a vision of their perfect retirement which almost always includes maximum personal freedom.
Apparently Mariska A.K.A. Houdini HorseÂ not only wantsÂ personal freedom she wants freedom for all her companion horses as well.
The market crashes and low interest rates during the last decade have put serious crimps in many retireesâ€™ personal retirement freedom. Some have had to work part time jobs others have had to cut back their spending in order to keep the household budget balanced, crimps to retirement freedom.
Unfortunately many financial planners are still using outdated retirement income models from the 90â€™s and because these models do not work in the â€śnew normalâ€ť they are exposing their clientâ€™s retirement freedom to unnecessary risk. As I have written in several posts it does not have to be this way. The tools are available to help retirees maintain retirement freedom.
