During 2020 we made the Midlife Quiz available for the public to complete.
The results are still coming in as we continue to make this important tool available for midlifers, but I wanted to share a few preliminary results.
And I can tell you, the results are very enlightening.
I'll get straight to the point.
86% said that they don't feel in control of their future, and that it feels like they are drifting through life.
67% said that they felt trapped, with few choices.
As you might expect, that meant that 76% of respondents said that their stress was constantly at a level of AT LEAST 7 out of 10.
Some good news from the survey shows that 62% either hadn't made up their mind yet or were still feeling optimistic about the future. This is good news, that despite the challenges, people are still hopeful that things will improve.
This is good news because it means that those people are likely to continue to look for solutions to their problems and may seek help.
Most people are recognizing that change is needed in their lives. They are recognizing that continuing to do what they've been doing will yield the same results.
Not surprising to me, but perhaps maybe for others is how much survey respondents were looking in the rear-view mirror for answers.
And lastly, these results reflect in what people are practically doing and not doing to move forward with their life.
If and of that sounds like you, then obviously you are not alone.
Midlife is a significant time of change, and few of us are equipped to handle it well.
If you haven't taken the quiz, you can still do so:

Do make sure you click the confirmation email to make sure you get all the survey results and the solutions tailored to your answers.
After that, I do recommend digging deeper into how we get into midlife confusion, and what the blueprint is for getting out. You can take that all in through the Midlife Masters Webinar replay which is still available.

There is only so much that getting more knowledge will do for you. At some point, you'll need to speak to a human. Someone who will listen and adapt to your unique story to provide you with the support you need to plot a path forward.
The best way to do that is to grab a free 30 minute discovery call (I call them 'Virtual Coffees') with me, face to face online with Zoom.

Hope to speak with you very soon,
