Thinking about a 120-year life
When I arrived at the thought that I could escape from my passive attitude to actively increase and create my time, I made a choice that would dramatically change my thinking about old age. I’ve decided to live 120 years! What’s important is that a clear vision and purpose for what I wanted to achieve through my life came before my choice to live 120 years.
Since choosing to live to 120, I’ve actively spoken about that choice whenever I’ve had the opportunity, in private or in public. Most people have been fascinated. Sixty-somethings in particular sit back relaxed, only to lean forward in their seats and listen carefully when I’ve talkeda bout this. However, I soon learned that not everyone welcomes my idea. Some have even been antagonistic to my idea of choosing to live to 120. Such people have reacted in one of these three ways:
- Is that really possible? It’s still nothing but a dream.
- Oh, my God! For me, that would be hell!
- Just because you made up your mind, doesn’t mean you’re going to live that long, does it? We should just enjoy the years of life given to us before we die.
What about you? Honestly write down whatever thoughts or feeling first came to mind when you saw the title I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years or first encountered talk about a 120-year life.
I guess that, like most people, you probably had your doubts. “What? 120 years?” There’ll be a reason you responded that way. Try to think about what that reason was. What kind of information about old age did you have at that time?
Our heads are still influenced by ideas from the time when the average lifespan was 60. Without realizing it, we are programmed to think that our 20s and 30s are the time of our youth, and our 40s and 50s are middle age. Thinking of our 60s and above brings to mind infirm bodies, loss, pain, and dependence.
A new method of calculating age was fashionable for a time in Japan, whose people are among the longest lived in the world. According to this method, you multiply your current age by 0.7. Only then, it’s claimed, do you get the age you actually feel, physically and mentally, because these days we live much more youthfully than previous generations did.
Using this method of calculation, multiply your age by 0.7. How old does that make you?
Think of that age as the age you actually feel. How does that make you feel?

The 120 workbook is very well thought out such that it will help readers apply the principles shared in the 120 book to their life by allowing them to work through a variety of questions in the workbook and awaken to their true value. Furthermore, it will help one design their future or the second half of their life in detail for the good of all based on one's true value.
As for me, I felt like I had a good life review from the vantage point by reading through the 120 workbook and contemplating on those questions provided in the book. Although I didn't spend a lot of time on every question, contemplating on them even for brief moments helped me see how many experiences and memories of the past have affected my life to this day. I was able to see the greater picture of my life, which lead me to realize that I myself had created all my life experiences and thus I was able to accept my life as it is and become at peace with myself. By the time I was about to finish this workbook, I was able to clearly see what I truly want for the rest of my life, and it is to live a life for completion and for the benefit of all, which is one and the same thing.
The 120 workbook is as great and perfect as the 120 book. Not only did it meet my expectations but it actually exceeded them in many ways. The 120 workbook is a wonderful enhancement to the 120 book, and I have no doubt that it will benefit everyone who reads it.
