Dena’s passion for life and helping others find their purpose is unique, as are her views on how we are  just getting started in our 50’s. As Dena describes, its about setting life goals not retirement goals at midlife. It’s not about winding down – you’re just getting started!

Here are her main takeaways:

  1. You are at a crossroads where you can decide to continue on that road  or make a change to a more fulfilling life.
  2. We think external validations are a milestone for  happiness, joy or fulfillment – but they are really not
  3. Courage is like building a six pack – it doesn’t happen overnight. You have to build that one muscle at a time. 
  4. We have so many thoughts and fears that don’t make any sense and are irrational when we decide to leave a comfort zone, and yet we listen to them anyway.
  5.  Skydiving is a representation of letting go and surrendering – letting go of control. Sometimes we just need to let go of control, surrender and trust. 
  6. Fear is not something to conquer. Fear is something to work with. Because its part of you. 
  7. The soul starts to take over at 35 and that’s why some people’s values start changing. The spirit starts taking over at 49. There are changing happening in people’s lives as a result of these milestone years. 
  8. GenXWoman – we’re just getting started and numerology validates that. Its about setting life goals not retirement goals 
  9. Truly live your highest potential. Truly live the greatest expression of who you are. Because we came here to live we did not come here to do.
