“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.” – Henry Ford
I was talking to my Son last week who is going to be 60 in March and he said he still feels like he’s 30, I replied, although I’m going to be 81 in April, I still feel like I’m in my 50’s. We then both said the same thing, “I can’t believe I’m that old.”
I got married at 19 (that’s what girls in my family were expected to do in the 50’s.) He was born just before I was 21 so there’s only about 20 years’ difference in our ages.
I may be more techie challenged than younger people but every day I learn something new and I intend to keep learning for many more years because that, with positive thinking, will allow me to live a happy life and keep my mind active so I can continue to think I’m in my 50’s.
Don’t look back, whatever has happened in the past is over and if you constantly worry about the future you will just live with anticipatory anxiety.
Voltaire said, “Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her but once they are in hand, you alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game.”
Stay present, live your days with intention, get clear on your purpose in life and don’t focus on what you don’t want, only focus on what you do want to achieve. Dream bigger, whether its life and/or business, set bolder goals and don’t allow doubt to sabotage your success.
Remember, you have the power of choice and when you change your thinking you can change your life so no matter what age you are, you are only as old as you tell yourself.
‘Til Next Time
Have a fun and fantastic week
