To live, is to become. Nobody stays the same. It’s just about making the choice between leading your life, and letting your life lead you.
Life is all about change. It is impossible to be completely stagnant. Even if you don’t always notice, your life is changing.
I have always been in awe of those who are the leaders of their life. Those who never stop learning something new. They don’t know the meaning of stagnation, they’re constantly on the move.
They’re growing, never the same as they were yesterday.
I have been blessed with the honor of growing up around one such person. My father. His thirst for knowledge, and his way with making opportunities appear for himself, by simply always being prepared and capable enough to take on anything. It’s inspiring. Especially for those of us who may feel lost, it’s people like him that inspire, to put age and doubt aside, and take life by the horns.
Make yourself capable, physically and mentally. Learn as much as you can, from wherever you can. It’s never too late.
I can say this with confidence because I have seen it my whole life. Today at 57, still a gym buff, still more fit than myself, I find him everyday trying to learn something new. He’s made a career with sheer hard-work, knowledge and discipline, and never once fancied a break.
I said it once and I’m saying it again, It’s never too late. There is so much power in these words. Think about it.
You’re going to change anyway, so why not decide for yourself how you want it to be!
