I’ve always thought that there is no such thing as someone being too old. You can’t be too old to start your dream, get into shape, or learn something new. You know when you ARE too old? When your cold and in the ground. Then it’s too late.
Unfortunately, I’ve been seeing some folks that feel like they are getting overlooked for opportunities of all kinds because they are not young. This is not the issue at all.
THE PROBLEM ISN’T AGE — IT’S YOUR WILLINGNESS TO LEARN.
If you want to get to where you want to be in life, then you have to possess solid, attainable goals and reach for them. Another key to achieving greatness is being flexible. Sometimes, experience can be tied to stubbornness and pride and those are issues that cannot be resolved with training.
Never lose your yearning to learn.
This year, at age 35, I want to learn Spanish and how to define success. Those are two of the main goals I have for 2015. They are pretty lofty, especially considering all of the other things I want to accomplish, but I believe I can achieve them with the right attitude.
When we go through school, we are expected to have homework and our whole point in life is to learn. That’s it. But as we get older, we become more “responsible” with a family, a mortgage, and a 9-5. Being a student of any kind becomes secondary… or even third-ary.
Take time today to invest in yourself and learn something outside of your comfort-zone. If you heard me speak Spanish, you’d realize I’m doing the same. But I’m learning and I’m reaching and that will take me places. What would you like to accomplish this year? I’d love to hear from you – comment below and I’ll cheer you on!
Never Lose Hope,
