Top 9 Life Lessons from 100 Year Olds

By Greg Thurston
Creator of 7 Minute Mindfulness

Watching videos of centurions, you start to see a theme: they seem content. 

That might be shocking to younger people, especially anyone who fears old age. Maybe we fear missing out on opportunities in life, and worry that we’ll find ourselves too old to do things. 

But we have many interviews of people 100 and older, and they love to share about their lives and offer advice to the rest of us. 

Dr. Mercola (of the Mercola Video Library) interviewed three centurions for this very information, and many other people have as well. 

Quite a few of us (more now than ever) have relatives or know someone who is 100 or over. 

One lady I know who is 104 is full of sassy attitude and enjoys talking to people. 

From this wealth of information, we can form the following ten lessons. 

1. Happiness comes from what we do 

At 100 years old, or older, people don’t seem to sit around and smile about the things they accumulated in life. 

Rather, it’s more about their life experiences. Happy memories can go a long ways toward happiness later on! 

One man over 100 years old said he did all he wanted to do. Now he wants to be helpful and keep going. 

“I have so many beautiful memories,” said a woman over 100. “I got to do all the things I wanted to.” 

That tells us to jump in and live life – remember that it’s about really living and making memories with people we love. 

Science backs this up as well. We know people derive more happiness that is long-term from experiences such as vacations rather than from possessions. 

2. Happiness comes from a positive attitude and optimism 

People over 100 seem to remember life through rose tinted glasses, making it sound like an adventure even through hard times, like war. 

“I’ve always been lucky,” says one centurion despite living through 2 great wars! 

She also talked about how “everything makes me happy. I love talking to people… going shopping.” 

Common advice from people who are doing well at 100 is to “Decide to be content.” Others say, “Don’t chase happiness. Just be satisfied.” 

Deciding life is good changes our perception and makes life better, and apparently it helps you live much longer! 

3. Happiness comes from living in the NOW 

Age is only a number. You live for the day and keep going. 

This is wisdom from someone with a very long past-but they enjoy the present. 

The past is the past; we can’t change it. But we can rob ourselves of our present happiness and good emotional health by hanging onto old regrets, grudges, and pain.

You’ll gain inner peace, happiness and feel ‘uncluttered’ in your life. 

4. Love and Partnership is critical for long life 

Centurions often talk about their “good” marriage, all their happy memories, and all their good times together. It’s another area where they might be applying rose-tinted glasses, but it’s apparent that they got emotional support and felt like they have a life partner. 

They also say that people today give up too easily these days-so there was hard work involved, but at the end of their life that part isn’t really important anymore. 

“Being happily married and happy in general is the remedy for all illness.” 

We don’t have studies on how marriage or long-term relationships affect life span, but you don’t have to be a scientist to take note: centurions all speak about their decades long marriage with a smile on their face. 

Even people who have been widowed for a few decades say they have many, many warm memories about their married life, and that still makes them happy. 

5. Eat natural, real food to feel good and live long 

Many people who are 100 say they feel strong and like they’re 69 or 79. These are the people who stay active physically and mentally, and have a lot to share with other people. 

Many people over 100 talk about eating fresh food that they grew themselves. 

And older people will tell you over and over: eat in moderation! 

6. Learn to adapt for a better and longer life 

“Life goes on regardless” is a common theme. People who live well into old age understand that there is hardship in life but they know life goes on and they must too. 

If you live 7, 8, 9, 10 or more decades, you’re going to see a lot of change. 

People who adapt and change with the times do better. It’s part of having a positive attitude-they’re excited for new opportunities instead of fearing change. 

7. Help others 

Helping others is one way to build relationships and connections, and it makes you feel great. 

It’s another common theme among people who live to be over 100. 

Being kind and helping others gives you a sense of purpose too, and it fights depression and anxiety. Not only that, it’s a way of staying active and productive after you retire. 

It’s a win-win for everyone involved, and being older and retired can mean having more time for volunteering. 

8. Always learn! 

Older people will advise to get a good education to help you go far in life, and science has shown that people with a Bachelor’s degree actually do live about a decade longer than people who don’t have one. (From the U.S. Centers for Disease an Control Prevention) 

Older people will tell you to keep learning all through life, both in and out of school. 

Be curious-it makes life more interesting and fun. And it helps you stay engaged with life and the changing technology and times. That helps you adapt too. 

9. Practice Mindfulness 

People over 100 tend to live in the moment as it comes, rather than worrying about plans, regrets, and getting caught up in pressure and worry. 

They cherish special time with family and friends, the colors and smell of a new flower in spring, or the feel of the grass on their feet. 

When life is enjoyed in the moment, it’s just better… 

…And people who live in the moment more tend to live longer, happier lives!

Actively practicing mindfulness is one of the best things you can do for yourself. 

When we disconnect from the mental chatter (the past, future, worry, expectations and judgements), we are able to approach life with greater perspective – we tend to see the opportunities, instead of carrying around the weight of worry and mental baggage. 

There’s a wealth of research on the long term and short term health benefits of mindfulness, including boosting your immune system, Preventing cellular aging, and reducing the likelihood of age-related diseases. (UCLA) 

If you’d like disconnect from the mental chatter but don’t have time for long drawn out meditation, then try 7 Minute Mindfulness.

Manifestation Magic Review

We’ve seen it all… from The Secret to the plethora of self-help and law of attraction books that litter the market.

You’d think that with all the guides and products out there, everyone would be rich and living an abundant life. Yet, that is NOT the case and most people struggle daily.

When we came across the “Manifestation Magic” website, our first question was, “Does the world need another product about the law of attraction?”

Putting our skepticism aside, we decided to review this product… and give you a brutally honest review about it.

Manifestation Magic is a series of audio tracks that have brainwave entrainment frequencies. By listening to these tracks when you’re about to sleep, your brain will be more receptive to the hypnotic suggestions.

There will be much less external and internal interference. It’s a brilliant concept.

What You’ll Find Inside:

Before looking at the benefits of Manifestation Magic, let’s look at what you get – and you do get a lot.

  • – Quick Start Manifestation Guide (PDF, Kindle, iBook versions)
  • – Twilight Transformation Energy Orbiting Track
  • – 7 “Energy Orbiting” Tracks to Enhance Chakra Wealth Energy.
  • – The “Push Play” Audio App
  • – 60-Day, Money-Back Guarantee
  • – Bonus #1 – Chakra Power System
  • – Bonus #2 – 360 Transformation System
  • – 2 Surprise Bonuses – The Abundance Miracle System & 7 Sacred Signs

This package sure doesn’t hold back. We were quite surprised to receive so much content for a reasonably low price.

Manifestation Magic is a complete system that’s more comprehensive than most books in this genre… BUT… content alone isn’t enough.

There is still one VERY IMPORTANT question that must be answered…

Will Manifestation Magic Help You?

1. Actions that matter: : The biggest problem we had with books like The Secret was that all you had to do was think positively to see results. This Pollyanna approach to manifesting wealth sounds good, but rarely works.

Manifestation magic requires you to listen to the audios. This is work. It’s not hard work – but it’s necessary work. The ‘Daytime Wealth’ track is especially important.

2. Builds a strong foundation:: The reason why Manifestation Magic works and has positive testimonials is because of the science behind it. It changes your thought patterns.

Manifestation magic requires you to listen to the audios. This is work. It’s not hard work – but it’s necessary work. The ‘Daytime Wealth’ track is especially important.

It’s very difficult to do this with books, because we are creatures of habit. So, by listening to the audios, we can delve deeply into the mind and fix the inconsistencies that are sabotaging our efforts. Manifestation Magic does this better than any book we’ve seen.

3. Consistency:By asking you to listen to the tracks daily, Manifestation Magic builds positive habits and thinking in you without much effort on your part. This is not a haphazard approach to generating wealth like positive thinking that you do anytime you feel like. Consistency leads to results.

4. Clearing out the trash: No amount of positive thinking can work if you’re still stuck in your old patterns of thinking. It’s like applying nail polish on a rash to hide it.

You must treat the problem. Manifestation magic has “Energy Orbiting” audio sessions to clear abundance blocks in your mind. By clearing the old obstacles, your path will now be clear to manifest miracles without your attempts being impeded.

5. All-Encompassing System: On the surface, Manifestation magic looked like just another run-of-the-mill self-help product. We were so wrong.

There are audios, a QuickStart guide and about 14 bonus audios that will help you with your wealth, love life, spirituality, etc. It’s so much more than a wealth attraction product and it lived up to its promises.

6. Easy to use: There’s no denying the fact that it’s easier to listen to audios rather than force yourself to think and visualize positive images when your life around you is in shambles. Manifestation Magic is a very practical and down-to-earth program that understands that you need to make changes WITHIN before you can make changes in your life. The canvas must be clean before you can create a masterpiece. We loved the audio tracks with the gentle pulsating sounds!

7. Genuine Testimonials: The official sales page has reviews from customers who have tried the product and seen changes in their life. That’s social proof that the audio tracks deliver on the promise.

8. Instant access: This is a digital product. You’ll get instant access to it and can start changing your immediately. No shipping costs or delays.

9. 60-Day Money Back Guarantee: This point alone shows the abundance mindset that Alexander has. He has so much faith in his product that he has given you enough time to test out the product and make changes in your life.

If it doesn’t work, you can always get your money back. We’re guessing that you won’t because Manifestation Magic will add magic in your life. Still, it’s a risk-free purchase.

What are Subliminal Messages and NLP?

Subliminal messages have been around for decades. Terms such as ‘self-hypnosis’, ‘binaural beats’ etc. have been used to describe audio tracks that gently work on reprogramming your subconscious mind while you sleep.

These tracks are easy to use because they require very little effort on your part. All you do listen to them when you’re in a sleepy and more suggestive state.

NLP refers to neurolinguistic programming and it was invented by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. NLP is used to change your behavioral patterns by altering your neurological processes. It’s akin to creating new outcomes by changing your habits.

What makes Manifestation Magic so powerful is that the audio tracks that come with this program infuse both subliminal messages and NLP. That makes these tracks even more potent and effective.

Any downsides to this product?

There are a few downsides. No product is perfect… and thankfully, the only 2 cons we could fine were just minor issues.

1) Can only be purchased online

You’ll not be able to purchase this product from a bookstore. It’s a digital product and you need a computer and an internet connection to access and download it.

The product vendors intentionally made it this way so that they could keep the production costs low and make it affordable to the masses – and help as many people as possible.

2) Audio tracks may not be suitable for everyone

Some people may find it difficult to listen to the tracks because the frequency may be jarring to them. This is a very small minority – but it happens.

The good news is that you just need to contact the support team of Manifestation Magic and they’ll mix a new audio track for you with a different frequency that you can easily listen to – and they will do it for FREE! Excellent customer support here.

Should You Buy It?

Definitely! This product delivers what it says on the tin. You’re backed by a guarantee and you’ve nothing to lose and everything to gain.

It bridges the gap between visualization and results. The audios will accelerate your results if you’re already practicing daily visualization. It’s the missing piece of the puzzle.

There must be action, if you wish to see results. Listening to the audios is the action that you must take to change your life fast and manifest the health you wish to see.

Wealth, love, good health and whatever you want is within reach. It will take some effort. You’ll need to consistently listen to the videos and follow Alexander’s advice to the letter – but now you finally have a blueprint to success.

You’re not taking shots in the dark. You have a tool to fix what’s not working within you… and once you change your ‘inside’, your outside will change miraculously… and you’ll NEVER look back.

Manifestation Magic gets two thumbs up from us.
