Turning Thirty (ages 28-32). We dance through our teens and 20s thinking we are guests at a never-ending party. Suddenly around age 27.5/28 life throws down a gauntlet, a challenge, and there is no way around it. Time, age, reality and responsibility become not only frequent words in our minds and vocabulary, they become the glaring demands of life. We must pick up the gauntlet and deal with it one way or another. We must deal with life as an adult for the first time.
We become more conscious that Life is demanding that we grow up, when we are 26-27. Some people know so strongly that they can no longer live immaturely, childishly, and they do thing to essentially “check out” of Life. Ever wonder why there is a 27 Club? This is the “club” of people who die when they are 27, full of unmanifested potential, massive potential, that would have changed their life, their world and maybe even the entire world in some way. Famous members of the 27 Club include Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, and Amy Winehouse.
We may have seen good things come from them in their first 27 years but they were on the verge of GREATNESS. It required maturely accepting life, stopping the dangerous and bad habits and associations. In some way, it is not hard to see, they did not want to move forward, so they took a role in destroying themselves.
Successories, a motivational company, defines commitment as “Extraordinary energy, concentrated power and sheer will. This is the potent mix required to break barriers and reach the pinnacle of success”.
Turning Thirty is a time in life when there IS a right and a wrong. Either you get this time of life right and succeed or you head in the obvious wrong direction out of stubbornness or laziness and cause yourself unnecessary suffering and struggle for your next 30 years. It is a time of commitment.
The emotions you experience at this time are heavy. It is a time of isolation and anguish. You are faced with the limitations of your mortality and are forced to come to terms with your own limitations. Are you experiencing a sense of oppression or depression? Are you drifting? Does it seem that nothing works out for you anymore and you are constantly resisting other people and situations? Commonly you will have the sense that time is running out and you must work hard, dedicate yourself in some area. That area becomes immediately clear.
When you are turning 30, you must show Life that you are serious.
Something difficult, daunting and often disagreeable must be faced and dealt with. After a depressive, oppressive two-three years of fighting against what is on your plate, you can hide and run from it but then your 30s and maybe the rest of you life will be disconnected and “lost”. You can drink hard to avoid that relaitonship, that career or or that other needed step but all it means is you become an alcoholic while your peers will pass you by. Together, we can change that by helping you with our insightful lifespan program for Turning Thirty (28-32 years old)
Specifically, in our “Turning Thirty” work together we will help you:
- Determine what area(s) of life must undergo change now
- What situations and/or people are appearing in your life as your call to growth
- What this time period means for your next 15 and 30 years
- What your options are
At 29, my life was not working. I hated my job and had bad finances. What I tried to make would not happen. I blamed my girlfriend and my parents. I was angry at my friends for no longer being the same. I was lying to myself and others. Being Danish, life is a youth party even when you are 28, 29, 31, maybe because we are still in university. Then suddenly we are to be adults — but society has not taught us how to be an adult along the way. We have a problem in the Danish society. However, by doing the Turning 30 program, I came to see how I broke my life and how I needed to change. Things are much better now in my relationship, my finances and with my future. Thank you, Barrett. – Peter T.
