Age is Just a Number
You believe that you should have everything figured out in life before you reach 30, 40, 50, etc. The older you get, the less opportunity you think you have to do something new. The only reason you think it’s too late to start is because that’s what you grew up believing.
You think that you have to cram everything in before the general retirement age of 65. After that, it’s time to play golf, work on your garden, travel, and play with the grandkids. This simply isn’t true.
If you’re determined to do something, it is never too late to start. Here are some famous examples of people who started late.
• Ray Croc was 59 years old when he bought out the McDonald’s brothers. He turned it into an empire.
• Stan Lee, creator of Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man was 40 when he began drawing these legendary superheroes. He’s now 90 years old and makes a cameo in every movie based on his comic books.
• Julia Child didn’t even learn to cook until she was almost 40 and didn’t launch her popular show until she was 50.
• Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken was 66 when he began to promote his style of cooking and create an empire.
If anyone of them thought it was too late to start they wouldn’t have created their best life’s work.
Life is short! Don’t let age stop you from going after your dreams. Don’t be a Quitter.
