Moving from Oh No to Oh Yes! … 8 Midlife Yes stories


Fellow Midlifer, are you frustrated with how Your life is panning out? Are you lacking certainty about your future, struggling for Purpose, perhaps down on inspiration? Then get in touch with me right away I will help you to be more assured, achieve what you want & create the better days that you deserve. The right Solutions & Support are life changing, as well as adding tremendous Value … and you do like value, don’t you? 


Are you moving toward or recently reached the magic 40+? “Oh No” you may be thinking or saying out loud. “Where has my life disappeared?”

Why do this, when you should be exclaiming …”Oh Yes!” … My Life has so much more to reveal to me AND Me to reveal to the world.

Getting to the magic 40+ is an achievement. However the previous years have simply been practise for the excitement that lays ahead.

Here are a few “Oh Yes”! stories that you can tell to yourself. Read them often and they will ring true for You … if you let them.

Oh Yes! … my dreams are coming alive. I have worked at this for quite a while now. The steps that I have taken have accumulated and they have been worth it. Keep stepping, I say! Each step is a treasure all of it’s own.

Oh Yes! … my strengths are showing. Years of fine tuning, listening, learning are now paying dividends .. Big time. The ability to keep stepping has given me consistency of stride and of Purpose.

Oh Yes! … my knowledge is growing. Some may even call it “Wisdom”. The knowing of right from wrong. The knowing what is right for me. Knowledge that I can share to allow others to grow. What’s the point of knowing when you can’t share what you know?

Oh Yes! … my appreciation of life spurs me on to greater achievement. Life and it’s magic become more apparent each day.

Oh Yes! … more goals to achieve, bigger mountains to climb. Bigger boots needed, I think. I’ve worn out a few….. the excitement of recent goal achievement has me hungry for more.

Oh Yes! … my children look up to me .. and their children. I impart my wisdom [to those who will listen]. I support and encourage them. I can ‘Pass the baton’ when it’s time, knowing that it’s in good hands.

Oh Yes! … my Love for Life grows and grows. The people, the situations, the serendipities. Nothing more to be said there …Midlife3

Oh Yes! … I can soon relax after all my efforts have borne me the sweet fruit to savour. Can I? Maybe just slow down a little. Afterall, the love of Life and all it’s offerings does take a piece of my energy through all the excitement … energy that I gladly give.

I am hoping that your or soon to be Midlife has plenty of “Oh Yes”! stories to be told.

    Hi David,

    What an excellent post, my friend.

    I read each of the “Oh Yes” stories, and each one conjured up positive images in my mind. Isn’t it amazing how we can shift the way we feel for the better, when we say the right words and wrap them around with a big “Yes”?

    Thank you.

    Have always been a goal driven person but now that I’m married, have kids, the home we always wanted (basically I’ve been very blessed had have achieved the life I wanted) but now I find it hard to set meaningful goals. Money no longer drives me so setting goals around income don’t work. Would love to engage in conversation on this.
