Have you ever told anyone that you plan to retire early? And then explained that you don’t mean at age 60 or age 55, but rather age 45? I can guess what most people’s reaction is: disbelief. That’s impossible, they might say, so why even try? I wonder how they know it’s impossible. I guess they have decided to not try and so for them it’s impossible.
I’m not suggesting that it’s possible for everyone to retire at age 45. I know not everyone would even want to. But for those who really want it, I believe that they can come up with approaches to try and resolve each challenge they face.
At this point, I want to share an inspiring video of a group of young boys in Thailand who loved soccer. They lived in a fishing village built on the water, so they had no space, no coach and no uniforms. But when they decided they wanted to start a soccer team, they put their hearts into it.

What makes it difficult for you to retire early? How are you going to face that challenge, so that you can move forward?
