Do You Belief that The second half of your life can be better than the first?

Are you ready to move into the second half of your life? The second half of your life can be better than the first. Much better. But first, you need time to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.

Bob Buford wrote a book titled ''Halftime'', In this book, I read a line on the back of Halftime, and that line is 'The second half of your life can be better than the first'. My first thought was, “That’s very easy for Bob to say! You don’t know what I’ve been through and what others are going through.”

The most impactful book I have ever read after Holy Bible is Halftime.

Halftime was discovered at a time in my life when I thought I was in a full-blown mid-life crisis.

Just thirty days before I discovered Halftime, I received a phone call that changed our lives.

It was a call from a pastor saying, "The van that Malori my daughter was riding in was involved in a rollover accident and she was thrown out of the van. She's not breathing."

I asked the pastor where they were and he said, “Monterrey, Mexico,” a place I had never heard of before, but I was now buying a plane ticket to get there as soon as possible.

As I was backing out of the driveway to head to the airport, I received a second phone call from the Pastor saying, "Malori died, I'm so sorry."

And that was the beginning of my Halftime journey.

My daughter, Malori Aslan Smith, was 17-years old. She graduated early from high school to become a full-time missionary in Mexico. So, when we got the news that she had died on the mission field, our faith-based lives were shaken to the core.

If you’ve ever asked yourself, “What am I supposed to do now?” then you know how I felt.

But, you don’t need to lose someone to feel this way.

All of us will ask, “what next?” at some point or another. For some that’s the season before retirement, for others it’s the empty nest years, a spiritual or work rut, or even the old cliché, the mid-life crisis: losing your identity, your confidence, feeling burnt out, and trying to fulfill that void by buying a sports car, getting a new spouse, taking an exotic vacation, etc.

All this mid-life ''myth'' was destroys by Bob Buford in his his book.

Your “what next?” moment — your second half of life — can be defined by Halftime. It's a time to regain control of your life, find your unique purpose, and to reallocate it in a way that is more about meaning, than money.

Odds are, you’ll live a whole adult lifetime that wasn’t available to your parents and grandparents. Their life expectancy at birth was fifty years. We have two lifetimes now. Life I is what occurs before halftime, and Life II comes afterward says Bob Bufford.

For me and my wife, that meant focusing on eternal investments and stepping out into uncharted territory to live for something bigger than ourselves.

We ended up starting Aslan’s Army, a non-profit that furthered the mission that Malori had started. Since forming Aslan’s Army, we have supported hundreds of orphans and widows and trained hundreds of pastors who have gone on to launch over 500 churches in India, Africa, Mexico and South America. Plus, I’ve worked for and started new businesses, like FaithGateway, that have encouraged others to have a life of meaning and faith.

Halftime is a time of transition, the time when, you moves beyond the first half of the game of life.  A time of revitalization and for catching a new vision for living the second half, the half where life can be lived at its most rewarding

If you’re open to living the next season of your life full of meaning, adventure, and eternal perspective, then I highly recommend reading Bible and Halftime.
