Turning our attention to what motivated, and motivates baby boomers’ problems, solutions, and thoughts (sociologists, and the media define those born between 1946 and 1964 as “baby boomers.” via The Boomers, the Gen-Xers… and Beyond); and as seen through the eyes of a mother of baby boomers…
Boomers are career focused, financially focused, and self-centered on one side; and on the other side they want to change the world they found and grew up in.
For boomers, their homes are their lifestyle more than their shelter.
Boomers feel they must break all the rules they grew up with, and into. Boomers like to show their wealth. What other place is there than your home to show your wealth? (via Tom Brokaw Reports Boomer$)
Boomers now at retirement age feel that cannot afford to and/or do not want to retire. They still want to make contributions as they continue to argue which contributions are the best; always remembering that when they get sanctimonious, they are unable to hear, and listen to anyone else any more .

Achieving what you believe is great
By changing your attitudes — your mind-set — you can change your life! To keep your self motivated, on track, and moving forward avoid procrastination, do what needs to be done! Break away from what keeps you from achieving your next level.
You achieve what you believe
The first thing you are selling — and they are buying — is you, and your beliefs. Before you talk about your product or service, you must establish a trusting relationship. When you leave a message on a prospect’s voice mail sell yourself first, and not your product or service.
You know more than you know
You can influence the outcome you want by getting to the point, being direct, having your facts right, and knowing that the difference between right, and wrong — wrong creates suffering, and right ends suffering.
