Thinking about a 120-year life

When I arrived at the thought that I could escape from my passive attitude to actively increase and create my time, I made a choice that would dramatically change my thinking about old age. I’ve decided to live 120 years! What’s important is that a clear vision and purpose for what I wanted to achieve through my life came before my choice to live 120 years.

Since choosing to live to 120, I’ve actively spoken about that choice whenever I’ve had the opportunity, in private or in public. Most people have been fascinated. Sixty-somethings in particular sit back relaxed, only to lean forward in their seats and listen carefully when I’ve talkeda bout this. However, I soon learned that not everyone welcomes my idea. Some have even been antagonistic to my idea of choosing to live to 120. Such people have reacted in one of these three ways:

- Is that really possible? It’s still nothing but a dream.

- Oh, my God! For me, that would be hell!

- Just because you made up your mind, doesn’t mean you’re going to live that long, does it? We should just enjoy the years of life given to us before we die.

What about you? Honestly write down whatever thoughts or feeling first came to mind when you saw the title I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years or first encountered talk about a 120-year life.

I guess that, like most people, you probably had your doubts. “What? 120 years?” There’ll be a reason you responded that way. Try to think about what that reason was. What kind of information about old age did you have at that time?

Our heads are still influenced by ideas from the time when the average lifespan was 60. Without realizing it, we are programmed to think that our 20s and 30s are the time of our youth, and our 40s and 50s are middle age. Thinking of our 60s and above brings to mind infirm bodies, loss, pain, and dependence.

A new method of calculating age was fashionable for a time in Japan, whose people are among the longest lived in the world. According to this method, you multiply your current age by 0.7. Only then, it’s claimed, do you get the age you actually feel, physically and mentally, because these days we live much more youthfully than previous generations did.

Using this method of calculation, multiply your age by 0.7. How old does that make you?

Think of that age as the age you actually feel. How does that make you feel?

The I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years Personal Workbook is truly a beautiful journey of self-reflection. Just from the first chapter I was able to not only reveal my unique, personal core values but how to effectively use my personal values in my everyday life. Working through the questions and exercises, I was able to willingly accept and discover another layer of my TRUTH of who I am and what is it that I truly want for my life. The first half of my life consisted of a lot of pain and hardship but also a lot of happiness and love. I was able to recognize that the hurt from my past, my fear of pain, my fear of getting hurt, and my fear of the unknown was what really kept me from moving forward into the future. Because of that fear it left me stuck and unwilling and unmotivated to live an authentic life. For what should I live my life for? I always struggled with this question searching for answers outside of myself and how can I truly live a happy and fulfilling life. This workbook helped me to accept my past with gratitude and showed me that I have the power (inside of me) to create the second half of my life. All I need to do is to develop a relationship with my true self and learn to become my own best friend. Most importantly to trust the guidance of my own deepest wisdom. I highly recommend this workbook to anyone who wants to reveal what they truly want and how they can live an authentic life. Thankyou Ilchi Lee for helping me to discover within myself, what it means to be “ALIVE”!
