Never Too Late

  • Who are you?
  • Why are you living and working the way you currently are?
  • What might you yet become and do the rest of your life?
When you reflect on the above questions, it really is so easy to look at life as some sort of sliding scale where 'my day' is in the past - where you reach some point when you are done and then you just flat line and wait around for retirement or fade to invisibility through a creeping irrelevance.

Or you get so caught up in the routine of relentless 24-hour cycles you keep your existence on auto-pilot and lose your sense of what you really want from life. Or you retire too early and revolve  your life around episodes in Netflix and calling talkback radio because nobody gets it.

The reality is that, when you get past your younger years, there is every chance that you feel no different inside your head that you did at 30, your body still works fine, you have lots of useful life and work experience and you can reinvent yourself whenever you want - if you choose.

Too many people settle, make up excuses to give up on their dreams and start to convince themselves they are too old to do things when their lives should be just warming up.

It really is challenging to ask who you really are. It is confronting to question yourself honestly about why you live and work the way you do. But is is genuinely empowering to really ask what you might yet become if you disrupt yourself and stop letting your bike just be pulled along in the slipstream of the pack.

Most of the barriers to change are self-constructed. Now is always the best time to make positive change. And i can guarantee you, no matter who you are, how old you are and what you do, if you are reading this there is a good chance you still have the option to be what you might have been.
