“Your 40s are good. Your 50s are great. Your 60s are fab. And 70 is f*@king awesome!” - Helen Mirren
I met Roger in Texas on my way to the airport. He shared this amazing story with me that not only inspired but further intensified my strong belief in attirement. I created this word after meeting him. Roger at the time was 79 years young.
Roger worked as a professional sales manager during his career. He currently drives for a car service in Houston, Texas and puts in 50-60 hours per week. He loves it as it provides purpose for him to get up each morning and make it happen.
His wife worked as a schoolteacher in her career and is now a sought out substitute teacher in the school district. She is 76 years young and is the first call for substitute teaching in the district, the reason being that she has incredible discipline skills.
This is her substitute teaching strategy that she employs as she always requests the toughest class in the school as her assignment for the day.
This amazing woman and teacher always requests the names of the two toughest kids in the class. She calls these students by name and asks them to come to the front of the class and help her with a warm up technique.
These are the toughest kids in the school and no one ever calls on them to participate therefore they are puzzled at first.
When she completes the day, these same students always tell the principal that she is their favorite teacher and wish that she was their regular teacher.
This woman is 76 years young and still driving her purpose and mission in life. In turn, she shares this purpose and passion with these young people. Purpose and passion can never be disguised, as it is extremely transparent.
