total freedom

When you crossed the threshold of 60, you arrived at a truly remarkable moment in your life. Being 60 and over is worthy of a celebration because it is the gift of total freedom.

Where does this level of freedom come from? And how can you access it if you are feeling less than inspired with where you currently are in life?

In this article and the accompanying video, we are going to answer these questions and more through six profound steps to total freedom after 60.

Where Your True Self Lives

Total freedom after 60 comes from loving yourself enough to let go of thinking your past was better than the present.

This means coming home to where your true, authentic self lives.

She is within you.

But for many women over 60, it can be a challenge to look within and connect with a version of yourself you may have resisted for many years. What makes it easier is getting clear on the path you are taking to experience a newfound sense of freedom in your life.

3 Commonalities Along the Path

We all have our own unique path to personal freedom after 60. There are, however, some common things we share that are important to pay attention to.

  1. The first thing to be aware of is the path you are on today is leading you beyond the façade of your past self. It is opening you up to more of your authentic essence.
  2. This path unfolds when you no longer allow limiting beliefs and stifling rules of adulthood conformity to determine the way you choose to see yourself at this stage of your life.
  3. You are establishing a new perspective for who you are that takes you out of the past and into the present moment. This opens space in your life for the new and improved version of you to step forward.

My Personal Example

It took me many years to figure out what my path would be after 60 and what new version of me would show up.

As I had always done, I started by telling myself a new story. But even that proved difficult because up to that point in my life, I had never mapped out the process.

For example, I built my company up from $20 and a ball and string into a multimillion-dollar consumer product business. Then I embarked on a 30-plus year career in the entertainment industry. And from that I became a bestselling author after 60.

In many instances, I was flying by the seat of my pants because each new path unfolded without me really thinking about the steps I was taking.

All I knew was that when it was time to let go of the outdated stories, I’d begin telling a new one. From there, I got busy setting things in motion with a lot of creative energy.

While I am still a whirlwind of creative energy, my life after 60 changed at a level and pace that required me to slow down and chart this new path in my life with more clarity.

After lots of inward journeying, followed by hours of journaling, I came to a question that radically changed my life:

If yesterday’s solutions are all I know, where do I start refocusing and renewing my life once I realized the old ways of living, loving, and creating no longer work?

At first, I didn’t have an answer. So, I asked my true, authentic self what she would do.

What unfolded is what I originally called The Six Steps to Refocus & Renew Your Life®.

Six Steps to Total Freedom After 60

These six steps charted a new life path after 60 I could not have imagined. They also became the basis for my books, online courses, and talks, which led me to where I am today.

The six steps are as follows:

  1. Adopt New Beliefs
  2. Reconnect with Your True Self
  3. Reframe Your Perception of Self-Love
  4. Be What It Is You Seek
  5. Be a Trailblazer
  6. Be Authentic

Telling a new story about my life encompassed all of these steps. Each one elicited a profound shift in perspective followed by a level of freedom I had never experienced.

The more I opened myself to receive the gifts of this newfound freedom, the more empowered I became. That’s when my new life path emerged.

That path involved taking my life lessons and sharing them in ways that inspires others to feel confident enough to do the same in their lives.

These six steps became my path to total freedom after 60. They can and will do the same for you.
