Today, I received a very disturbing correspondence. This letter deflates most humans in the United States.
Millions of Americans receive the same letter that I received. After receiving this letter some people will go into a state of depression.
AARP couldn’t have even wait until I was officially 50 years old. They had to rub it in.
Honestly, though, retirement is not even on my mind. My entire family worked into their 70’s.
I really feel that my life and my business is just starting to hit its stride.
I’m busier than ever and working harder than I’ve ever been. I feel that my energy level is higher than ever. Many people feel that once they hit a certain age, they need to begin to slow down and restrict their activity. These are artificial numbers and barriers we create in our head because it is what society considers to be “normal”.
I see this a lot, in dentistry.
I’ll have a patient that is unhappy with the way their teeth look. Their teeth may be crooked or they are worn and chipped from years of grinding.
Many of these patients will not improve their smile with either straightening their teeth or enhance their smiles with cosmetic treatment because they feel they are “Too Old.”
They will think that they are being shallow and should not want to improve their smile. They will tell me things like, “I’d like to get Invisalign to straighten my teeth but I’m too old for it.”
I will tell you, I was 40 years old when I had braces on my teeth. And it was the best decision that I made. There isn’t a day that goes by, that someone will compliment me on my smile.
