Age is no barrier to following your dreams; it doesn’t matter whether you are 7 or 89, it really is just a number in your head.
In fact the very things that we feel may disqualify us; our age, our color, our lack of education, are often the very things that make us different, that cause us to stand out, that propel us forward.
Is there anything more inspirational that an 89 year-old doing something for the very first time?
Your bravery at overcoming “apparent obstacles” invokes passion in other people and it causes them to open doors and believe with you on your journey. And we need this support and belief of others BECAUSE it is impossible to do anything significant on our own.
We are often tempted to use our obstacles as excuses to opt out of the journey. But to opt out is to give up and the world desperately needs you and your dream.
