Years ago, when I was in college, I was sitting in one of the little desks on the first day, nervous and not knowing what to expect. A woman walked in and sat next to me and smiled. She was in her mid-seventies, and as we struck up a conversation, she explained that a few years previous, she had lost her husband and decided to go to college. It was something she had wanted to do her entire life and never had. It was her belief that it is never too late for anything. I loved this idea and I loved her attitude.
IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO BEGIN AGAIN.
I once worked for a dentist. He was 35, had made some good decisions, and was in the process of buying the oldest and most established dental practice in Gilbert, AZ. He was a great guy with five children and an incredible wife. He told me that when he was in dental school that there were some students with him there in their 50’s. He explained that they had grown tired and bored of their jobs, their pay, and their fields of practice as lawyers and doctors, and even though they would only have 10 working years left in them by the time they graduated, some of them would make more money in those 10 years than they had their entire lives before that. He told me, and he also believed, that it’s never too late.
It’s never too late for anything. It’s especially never too late to work towards self-improvement. DAILY Self-Development is the key to a more fulfilling life. It’s not too late to work on becoming a better father or mother. It’s not too late to work on becoming a better husband or wife. It’s not too late to learn how to improve relationships and connections with others. It’s not too late to start over, alter a few daily practices, and create a more beautiful life. You may be in a spot where you are feeling hopeless, devastated, destroyed, and like life is over. There is hope. You are not alone. It is never too late to create a new mindset, then project this inner world into the physical, virtual matrix within which we all reside.
The truth is, I believe, that the beauty and joy we experience in this life ALL comes from within.
Jim Rohn speaks of a 75-year-old man. He explained to the man that he is in a very fortunate position because he has the opportunity to put the knowledge, experience, and everything he has learned in the previous 75 years into his 76th year, and make it the most beautiful year of his life, so far. What a year that is going to be! What a great perspective.
It’s never too late. So it is with each of us! We can choose to take all of the wisdom, knowledge, experiences, and information that we have amassed throughout our entire lives, so far, and act upon it this next year, in order to create the best year of our life!
It’s never too late to get stronger, wiser, and better. That starts with a new or improved mindset. When we get this right, everything else in life will fall into it’s rightful place, or out of our lives entirely, just like it is supposed to, according to our focus, and where we place our attention, most of the time.
It is the quality of our mindset and beliefs which will dictate the quality of our feelings, which then determines the quality of our actions, and it is the quality of our actions which will determine the quality of our lives.
Today I will remind myself that it is never too late to change, improve, grow, progress, and expand. By continuously and consistently working on Personal Development, I know I will be working towards becoming a consistently better version of myself-IT IS ABOUT PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION. This won’t only benefit me, but everyone around me, as well. I will remember that as I consistently do my best, my best will consistently become better.
