The goal in life is to die young, as late as possible – and be the best looking corpse in the cemetery!
Congratulations to all of us. Thanks to science and technology, we’re living longer. Life expectancy in the U.S. is at an all-time high – 79 years on average. But living longer is only half of the equation. Living longer with a good quality of life is the real objective – and that’s where the new science of Epigenetics and a leveraged income model come into play.
We now know that we don’t have to age like our parents or grandparents have. Scientists can now identify the sources of aging within our genes and the elements that influence how our genes express themselves as we age. The Fountain of Youth is no longer a futile quest; it is mainstream and it is readily available.
The mapping of the human genome in 2003 ushered in a new era of genetic wisdom. In December, 2012 The Discovery Channel aired a documentary called DNA: The Next Wave. They called DNA the “ultimate genetic crystal ball.” DNA sequencing is visionary technology that promises to end deadly diseases and give us the key to longer life. Private enterprise scientists are using DNA to map out a whole new genetic world, bringing what was once science fiction into reality.
One such corporation, Pharmanex, garnered the 2010 Most Innovative Company Award from the American Business Association for the science of ageLOC™. This patented, breakthrough technology identifies clusters of genes that are responsible for different aspects of aging and it “resets” those genes so they behave like they did when they were younger. ageLOC™ technology is being applied to a platform of skincare products and nutritional supplements. It puts tomorrow’s anti-aging products into the hands of consumers today. Looking good and feeling good goes beyond vanity in today’s competitive workplace. It is about how we are perceived; and youth is most often associated with new ideas, sharp thinking and energy.
For the most part, in a conventional business structure you are “aged out” at 65 regardless of your desire or ability to continue working. If you haven’t “made it” by then you have little chance of recovery — and statistics from Social Security and Census studies confirm this. They show that at age 65, 54% of the population is broke; 36% is dead; 5% is still working; 4% is well to do; and 1% is wealthy. So while it’s acknowledged that “health is our greatest wealth,” living longer without the means or the time to enjoy life is both depressing and demoralizing.
Fortunately, new social media dynamics, coupled with a solid business principle voiced years ago by Billionaire J. Paul Getty, have fueled an income model that is based on the concept “I’d rather have 1% of the efforts of 100 people than 100% of my own efforts.” In recent years this social commerce model has gained new advocates like Warren Buffett, Jim Cramer, Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump – just to name a few. It rewards you for putting your social capital to work. In other words, doing what you’ve always done: sharing products, services or technologies that have made a difference in your life. Rather than your income being dependent solely upon on your own efforts, in this model it is dependent upon a lot of people doing a little — and it ultimately offers long-term, leveraged income so that you can have both the time and the money to enjoy your life.
