“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis
Age is nothing but a number. You are never too old to do something. Or to try something new. So don’t let age stand in your way of anything.
Setting new goals and dreaming new dreams keeps us young. Keeps us moving. Keeps us living.
And maybe, just maybe, if you have an existing dream/goal or a new one, maybe you were meant to have it when you are older. Maybe you weren’t ready for it yet, so the universe kept it from you until you were ready to achieve it or think it.
So much of our lives are based on the decisions that we get forced to make, leading our lives in one direction or the other. If you dwell on the past, don’t. If you regret a decision you made, don’t. You can’t go back, just forward. And those previous decisions that you made are the ones that shape your life today. How you act. How you think. The people that you have met. And based off of those, are what your dreams and goals are made of today.
Just like the saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Yes you can. If the dog is willing. So for yourself, be willing, and be open.
Do what makes you happy. No matter your age. Just because you are a certain age doesn’t mean that you can’t re-invent yourself, choose a different career, etc, etc, etc. Successful people are those who make goals and accomplish them (or at least try to) over and over. Even if it takes years, don’t stop trying, don’t give up.
You only get one life.
