Are you a Saver in the 2nd half of life? (At or near retirement) A recent study/survey found that 61% of people fear outliving their money more than death!
This is a legitimate fear and very real possibility for many people who are taking more risk that they are aware of or feel comfortable with.
When it comes to the subject of retirement, we can learn a thing or two from the game of basketball. In the game of basketball, there’s a first half, half time and second half. In relation to your money, there’s a first half (accumulation phase). There’s a half time. This is when you sit down with your financial adviser (your coach) and judge how well you are doing. At half time, your financial statements are like the score board. They will tell you how well the game is going. As the years go by and you approach retirement, you are in the 2nd half of life. In the game of basketball, if you are loosing in the 2nd half, the players begins to focus on the next game. There’s always another game to be played. In the second half of your life, when does the game end? At your death!
Always remember: In the 2nd half of life, there are no do-overs. You have but one game to play.
It’s no secret that the stock market does two things very well. It goes up and it goes down. Sure, you have unlimited upside potential, but unfortunately, you also have unlimited downside potential. Many people unknowingly own investments that have a history of significant volatility. If you are in the 2nd half of life, these market “corrections” can have a devastating effect on your retirement accounts. Even one correction can hurt you. Multiple fluctuations will drastically slow you down, and could even bring you to a screeching halt, much like trying to drive your car on an empty tank. There’s nothing worse than waking up and seeing that your retirement account has been slashed overnight by %35+ percent. This was a reality for millions of Americans back in 2008. Many of of these people years later, are just now getting back to the break even point. Undoubtedly, history will repeat itself and millions of Americans will find themselves separated from their hard earned money.
