Surviving A New Year with Mid-life Challenges

By: Terry Burgess, Founder and Men’s Mid-life Coach, Upward MC


2018 is just a few days away.   The end of one year and the beginning of a new year brings an individual the opportunity for them to bring changes to their lives.  Sometimes though if you have a very negative and unsuccessful year though the new year can be overshadowed those events.


This is particularly true for individuals who are going through challenges in their midlife to senior years.   Individuals ages 40 to 65 oftentimes see changes in their lives become more difficult and longer periods of time to overcome and be successful.   However, I have found this is due to their mindset.


Your mindset and beliefs can be the difference in your life in the future days being a challenge or being a “win” for positive changes in life.    You can create success and positivity in your life by the way that you frame what happens in your life.  I am not saying that everything in your life is going to be a success or what you want to happen in your life.  However, using the magic of reframing and looking for the good in everything that happens to you can help give motivation and confidence to continue work on your goals and future achievements over the coming year.


If you are living currently in a time of mid-life challenges facing a new year can be made easier by using a system of creation of the “A-SMARTER” goals that I presented in my previous blog and using the reframing technique of outcomes to help maintain positive traction toward reaching those goals.   If you are new to these techniques I know it will a challenge and you may stumble as you work toward success using these two techniques.  However, with consistent and regular attempts to maintain adherence to these techniques I am certain you will find more success and positivity in your life over then next year.



If you are needing help using the “A-SMARTER” Goal System and reframing outcomes in your life; please feel free to contact me for a complimentary 1-hour coaching session.  I can help you develop a simple starting point plan to help you get on the road from your “mid-life crisis” to your “mid-life rediscovery and renovation” for your life.  You can visit to schedule you complimentary coaching hour!
