You Have the Blueprints to Live to 100
From the moment you were conceived, you were blessed with the blueprints, the intelligence, and the Innate Life Expectancy to live an active healthy life to 80, 90, 100 years and beyond; maybe even way beyond.
Consider these statistics:
- 100 year old people are the world’s fastest growing group with an expected increase of 746 % between now and 2040. This number is staggering.
- The May 2013 cover article of National Geographic focuses on the probability that some of today’s children will live to be 120 years old.
- The British Medical Journal recently reported they expect 50 % of the babies born since 2000 to live into their triple digits.
There have even been some experts who have said that we have the potential to live to 150 with quality years. More important than just getting to 80, 90, 100 years and beyond is getting there in style with the health and vitality that would make every one of those years enjoyable. This is what The 100 Year Lifestyle is all about.
You Have Been Given Advance Notice
Unfortunately, many of today’s generation of seniors and Superseniors are not experiencing the health or the joy of their extended life span. Too many of them are rotting away in nursing homes unable to capitalize on their golden years. Their plight has skewed our view of aging giving many of us trepidation and fear about the reality of our extended life span. Don’t be afraid. Have no fear. It is not because of their age that these people are suffering. Their generation had no clue they were going to live so long. They were blindsided by their extended lives; many of them living 50 years longer than science thought they could.
We are the first generation in history that is getting the advance notice that whether we like it or not, want to or not, we will probably live longer than we ever thought. Our generation must live differently by nurturing our Innate Intelligence and our Innate Life Expectancy through healthy choices rather than relying on drugs and surgery after we become sick or injured.
