Passion Never Retires is a private tour in a story rich world city with Peter de Kuster, to rewrite the story you tell yourself and your work and in the process create a life you love and never want to retire from.
You need a quest to wake up in the morning and enough money to sleep at night.
More than 10 years ago, Peter started rewriting traditional stories stories of retirement with his groundbreaking Passion Never Retires story. He changed the story about retirement from one focused solely on money on a certain date to one focused on creating a life and work you love and never want to retire from. In this Passion Never Retires private tour Peter moves that conversation to the next level by challenging you to step up, broaden your capacity, and embrace a new story.
Professionals exploring the concept Passion Never Retires understand the characteristics of creating a life and work you love and never want to retire from:
- Passion: If you don’t use your body or your brain, you lose them.
- Purpose: Money can fund purpose, but it cannot create purpose.
- Portfolio: There needs to be a balance between vacation and vocation.
- Power: Physical, intellectual, and spiritual challenges are the hallmarks of those who continue to thrive as they age.
What is your Story?
“Your story is your life,” says Peter. As human beings, we continually tell ourselves stories — of success or failure; of power or victimhood; stories that endure for an hour, or a day, or an entire lifetime. We have stories about ourselves, our creative business, our customers ; about what we want and what we’re capable of achieving. Yet, while our stories profoundly affect how others see us and we see ourselves, too few of us even recognize that we’re telling stories, or what they are, or that we can change them — and, in turn, transform our very destinies.
Telling ourselves stories provides structure and direction as we navigate life’s challenges and opportunities, and helps us interpret our goals and skills. Stories make sense of chaos; they organize our many divergent experiences into a coherent thread; they shape our entire reality. And far too many of our stories, says Peter, are dysfunctional, in need of serious editing. First, he asks you to answer the question, “In which areas of my life is it clear that I cannot achieve my goals with the story I’ve got?” He then shows you how to create new, reality-based stories that inspire you to action, and take you where you want to go both in your work and personal life.
Our capacity to tell stories is one of our profoundest gifts. Peter’s approach to creating deeply engaging stories will give you the tools to wield the power of storytelling and forever change your business and personal life.
