It’s Never Too Late

What did you dream of being when you were a kid? Did you imagine being an actor, a fireman, a doctor, an artist, or maybe being a pro athlete?

As a young adult, I heard that the world was my oyster and offered an amazing pearl of a successful career. The future stretched out ahead with all kinds of possibilities. Yet, with every dream, there are always twists and turns. Some derail us or push us into a different direction than we expected.

Consider these interesting factoids:

  • At age 23, Oprah was fired from her first reporting job.
  • At age 39, Julia Child released her first cookbook, then got her own cooking show at age 51.
  • At age 60, Louise Hay, a motivational author, founded Hay House, a publishing company in self-help, new age, personal growth, and health categories.
  • At age 76, Grandma Moses began her painting career.

What about your dream? If you ever thought you’d age-out before achieving it, think again!

Try This: It's Never Too Late

Let's have some fun with re-energizing dreams and goals. Here is a quick exercise of three questions to dispel old disappointments or unexpected turns. Do this each morning this week:

  1. "How is my path forward?"
  2. "What’s now possible because of what has changed?"
  3. "Who else can I help?"

These questions are great for a morning reflection anytime. The key is to distract your mind from negative thoughts and spark your imagination.

Let me know if you reconnect with a dream or goal!
