The General Pension and Social Security Authority (GPSSA) has emphasised the importance of adopting an optimistic mindset when planning for retirement and future financial security.
As part of the “Get Ready - Proactive Financial Planning” campaign, the authority encourages insured individuals to make clear and rational decisions for their future well-being.
The proactive financial planning campaign launched by the GPSSA aims to motivate Emiratis to take decisive steps towards a healthy and sustainable retirement. The campaign provides guidance and support throughout the entire retirement process, from pre-retirement preparations to life after retirement.
A significant aspect of the campaign focuses on promoting the well-being of UAE nationals. These efforts align with the UAE government's "Pillars for Positive Citizenship" initiative, which seeks to enhance patriotism and pride in the nation and its heritage.
The campaign embodies the values of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, including practising awareness, knowledge, benevolent communication, cultural integration, and acceptance of social diversity. It also encourages individuals to serve as role models, sharing knowledge and skills to benefit and empower society.
Optimism not only benefits individuals and their families but also contributes positively to society as a whole. A positive mindset requires clearing one's mind of negativity and focusing on enhancing productivity and overall well-being.
By cultivating a practical mindset and implementing a wellness plan, optimism can become a way of life and habitual practice. Setting achievable goals, surrounding oneself with optimistic individuals, investing in personal strengths and knowledge and avoiding unnecessary overreactions are essential components of this approach.
