Age and Opportunity: Are the Two Linked?
Is there really such a thing as an age where
opportunity moves on and you no longer have the option
of doing what you want to do with your life? Yes, and
that age is the age that you die at.
Until then, you'll always have opportunities to turn your
life around, to have the financial success that you want,
the relationships that you want, the career that you want
(within reason of course, you might not become an
Olympic gymnast at 72) and to leave your mark on
Sure, these opportunities may not come in the same
packages that they did when you were younger, but as
long as you know exactly what you want, you'll be able
to seek out opportunities to have it. Then it's just a
matter of taking action, whether you believe that it's
"too late" or not.
Does this raise some doubts in your mind? If so,
here are some things to consider...
Age Has its Advantages
Many people never achieve their full potential until
later in life because of the disadvantages of youth. The
most common of these disadvantages is intemperance,
which is something that almost always steals
opportunities away from young people.
For example, intemperance when it comes to spending money
keeps many younger people from having the capital to start
their own business. It's not until they mature that they
build the self-control to manage their money and create
greater opportunities for themselves.
There are many other examples of this, but the bottom
line is that the maturity which you gain later in life
can be a valuable asset when it comes to getting focused
on what you want and using your resources wisely.
Another advantage of age is that you have time against
you. Yes, this IS an advantage when you put it into
perspective. Time is a lot easier to waste when you have
an abundance of it... as you do when you're young. But when
you're older and begin to realize that life isn't quite
as long as you thought it was, you build a greater sense
of urgency and motivation grasps you to get to work.
Finally, age does carry with it a social stigma that
the older you are, the wiser you are. While this isn't
always true, it does work in your favor when you consider
that many young people are denied chances (by employers
or potential customers) because of their age.
So while age might be considered a disadvantage, the
reality is that your perception makes an enormous
difference when it comes to the amount of opportunities
available to you.
So Where Do You Start?
The most important thing that you can do when it comes
to getting a late start is to take your eyes off the past
and to get to work right now - even if you're not ready to
do so. It's never too late, but then again, you're not
Yes, you might make some errors, but you'll learn from
them and when you do you'll be able to start again more
intelligently because of it. Think about it, the worst case
scenario is that you'll fall flat on your face,
but you'll never have to live with the pain of knowing
that you never got started in the first place.
manifest anything you want in life, no matter how long
you feel you have been stuck for:
