Some people figure themselves out relatively early in life.
But many others don’t even know what they want to do or what they’re passionate about until later.
This is not a matter of right or wrong.
Age should not even factor into the equation when it comes to fulfilling on a purpose.
In my estimation, you are about as old as you make up your mind to be.
I’ve seen 60-year-olds that look like 30-year-olds, and I’ve seen 30-year-olds that look like 60-year-olds.
The question is, do you want to be on this thrilling roller-coaster ride? Do you want to experience all that life has to offer? Do you want to experience more?
Or do you say to yourself, “I’m 40. I’ve lived. There’s nothing left for me to experience. It’s all downhill from here.”
I know people who feel like they’re just getting started as a 40-year-old. They’ve found something to be passionate about. Something that excites them. Something that gives them life.
People get too fixated on youth. They look at someone younger and say, “they are the future,” and yet equip them with nothing that will give them a leg up in being a better leader than they were. What kind of legacy is that?
Some people take themselves right out of the game because they think they’re too old. What kind of message is that sending to the youth? That they should give up when they’ve reached some arbitrary age too?
Change is constant. That’s the one thing we can count on.
It’s not that we are insignificant. It’s that with repetition and constant programming, we can be convinced that we are insignificant. We’re constantly being told we are in subtle, and in less than subtle ways.
You are important, no matter how unimportant you feel. The world would not be the same without you.
So, what are you too old for? Italian sculptor Michelangelo was said to have lived to the ripe old age of 88 because he had a purpose. Something important to fulfill on.
What is your purpose? What do you have to fulfill on?
Shh… Don’t tell anyone. Only the cool kids are talking about it.
