Creativity Trait #2
Without motivation and determination, there is no creativity, and there is no 100 Year Lifestyle. It’s one thing to imagine new ways of doing things or seeing new creations in your minds’ eye. It’s another thing to bring those creations, those new situations to life. In order to be meaningful, creativity needs to be manifested, to exist outside the mind or imagination.
Living your 100:00 requires motivation and determination. You need to not only understand the changes that will bring you health, but you need to make them happen. You not only need to understand the relationships or activities that will bring you joy, you need to pursue them. Luckily, The 100 Year Lifestyle offers the best possible motivation—health and longevity for you and your loved ones!

You are more engaged, you are no doubt having more of an impact in the world, and you are having fun! What’s not to be positive about?
