Many people feel they are too old or too young to experience the success they dream of and watch others obtain.
I have had clients ask, "Who would buy this from me?" or "Will they think I don't have enough experience?". And if I can be transparent, I too previously struggled with believing in my skills and the benefits I provide, more so than doubting my tender age. But today we must debunk the myth!
The reality is, you can reach success at any age of your life! Age is irrelevant and an obsolete factor in our dynamic world. If you don't want to take my word for it, below I offer 12 examples of proven success between the ages 12 and 69. These examples take you decade by decade to visualize success of authors, athletes, artists, politicians, and entrepreneurs.
Use these examples as reasons why you cannot give up on your goals and you cannot give in when you feel discouraged. As I researched these successful people more in-depth, I found their foundational elements to success were desire, passion, determination, and hard work!
I challenge you to redirect thoughts of doubt and fear regarding your age toward establishing an unshakable desire, unbelievable passion, uncharted determination, and unprecedented hard work... and watch your journey to success unfold!
