Who doesn’t love a good inspiration story? Especially ones where people are accomplishing great things at ages you wouldn’t normally expect. Nothing inspires me more than the 80 year old grandma that’s a bodybuilder or people going out and climbing mountains at an advanced age. They’re trailblazers that inspire hope that anything is possible AND at any age. Reading stories like those are one of my most favorite things to do. It helps me remember that anything is possible. We all need to be reminded of that sometimes and today I’m reminding you, it’s NEVER too late! For more details on this topic check out my Coffee Chat below.
Recently I read a tweet that basically said that we have these 30 under 30 lists and we’re always lauding the accomplishments of the fresh-faced entrepreneurs and younger people. But why not also celebrate the successes of people that are over 40 that are doing big things? The Twitter verse, of course, responded and brought in all of these inspiring stories of people who have taken this new phase of life and just done huge things with it. I loved reading all of these responses and it just gives me so much hope that it’s never, ever, ever too late for you to do something if it’s in your heart.
As Long As You Have Breath In Your Lungs…
As long as you have breath in your lungs, you can still have dreams in your heart. I want you to write that down.
As long as I have breath in my lungs, I can still have dreams in my heart. I deserve to have dreams in my heart.
Don’t ever think that you need to give up on yourself. Honestly, the biggest tragedy in life would be to die with your dreams still in your heart. I fully, firmly, truly believe that. I think that every year of our lives we can have additional dreams that we add. There’s no reason why you have to hit a certain age and say, I’m 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and I need to stop living.
Remember It’s Up To You!
I also want you to know that no one else is responsible for making this happen. Yes, you need support around your dreams, but you can’t expect that somebody else is going to come along and define your dreams for you. You need to set your goals and push toward those goals. You’ve got to take the steps and you have to make it happen. Nobody else is gonna do that for you. It’s easy to get down on yourself and feel like you don’t have the support around you. However, it’s in those moments that you need to find people to talk to that can support you or who will help to hold you accountable or form a group of friends that you can do this together with. Whatever it takes, you need to take the action. It’s both scary and empowering to realize that there’s no one else that’s stopping you from going after your dreams.
Goal Setting Is Vital To Growth
Setting goals is vital to chasing your dreams. That’s why I’m so excited for the Rediscover Me 28 Day Challenge! I feel this is a really good entry-level coaching challenge. At first you might feel a little bit overwhelmed by the goal-setting because we do set goals in a lot of areas especially if this is something you’ve never focused on before. But what if you don’t have any dreams right now or you don’t know what the next chapter of your life holds? I’m speaking to people over 40 like myself, but I’m also speaking to the young mom in her 30s, or really anyone that’s just trying to figure out what’s next. By looking at the different areas of your life it can help you find what your passionate about, what inspires you and that’s how you can find your drive.
You Only Get One Life
We only get one shot at life. Sometimes it’s a little bit morbid to think about that, but the fact is that we need to live every day to its fullest. We’ve seen the studies, the end of life surveys when people do interviews with people on their deathbeds, that one of the things that they say is their biggest regrets were not going after their dreams or worrying too much about what other people thought of them. Learn from that. It’s not too late for you. You have breath in your lungs today to figure out what your dreams are and follow them!
