This Week´s Inspiration

It’s Never Too Late

Late: Coming or remaining after the due, usual, or proper time; far advanced to toward the close or end

Never: Not in any degree, way, or condition

  • Have you given up on a dream because you thought it was too late? 
  • Have you quit because fulfilling your dream would take too long?
  • Do you know others who have used those excuses to not proceed?
  • Do you have any idea what that mind set is costing you in terms of fulfillment, impact, and your purpose?

Today’s message is simple: It’s Never Too Late for you to start, correct, re-open, finish, etc. 

Where does that concept apply?
It can pertain to action items, behaviors, and/or character traits.

Are these statements familiar?

  • I’m too old to start . . .
  • I’m too young to . . .
  • I’ve been smoking so long, I can’t quit now.
  • I just have to accept my poor health and wellness levels.
  • I have not talked to my brother for 20 years. Why would I attempt to now?
  • Do you know it would take me four years to finish my degree?
  • I’ve been a laborer for 30 years. It’s too late for me to learn new technology.

And so on.

Here’s an interesting bit of research conducted with individuals who were retired and over 70 years of age. They were asked this question: If they could live their lives all over again, what would they do differently, if anything. In the end, these were the most common answers. 

  1. They would take more time off and take more time for themselves.
  2. They would commit to more projects that would last beyond their lifetime.
  3. They would take more risks.

The answers are simple, yet hold a powerful message. Those wise retirees really felt that committing to being more engaged in their life would lead to more impact and personal fulfillment. 

Unless we are on our death bed, there is little reason for the majority of us to say it’s too late.

Oddly enough, our society seems to believe that if something is not done by a certain time in our lives, it’s too late. Nonsense! If you truly have interest, passion, purpose, or desire to achieve or to change, it’s never too late.

Just over a year ago, I had a personal tour of a special health care facility in Vancouver called Canuck Place, which provides holistic care to families with terminally ill children. It is one of only a handful of such facilities in all of North America. 

When I left, I was not only humbled, I was moved to new levels of compassion. What surprised me most is that these children are provided the most active and engaging programs relative to their conditions, including pursuing their required school curricula. We were told a story about a nine-year-old child who was actively involved in her learning until the day before she died. Wow!

If you still support the argument that it is too late to do or be something, do us all a favor and immediately get rid of that excuse!

Here are other inspiring stories.

  • My mother-in-law has been a widow for five years. Last month, at age 76, she remarried. She and her groom are like any newlyweds who are madly in love.
  • A couple of years ago, a 55-year-old male in Vancouver almost died of a heart attack due to his obesity. He changed his lifestyle, lost 100 pounds, and competed in an extreme sports trek competition where he pushed himself for 14 days in the New Zealand wild.
  • At the graduation ceremony of a BC university last year, one of the female students was 85 years of age.
  • When Abraham Lincoln finally won the Presidency of the United States, he had failed to win that office on many other occasions over several decades.
  • When J. K. Rowling finally starting writing, she was unemployed and around the age of 40. She is the author of the Harry Potter books.

What have you not done because you think it is too late? What is that costing you in terms of purpose, passion, and fulfillment?

What achievements have you denied yourself and others because of your It’s Too Late position?

Remember that retired individuals wish they had taken more risks? Well, now is your time!

I want to encourage you that it’s not too late to change or quit something, either.

  • This is the time to stop smoking.
  • Now you can clear the air with someone in terms of a relationship.
  • Seriously consider embracing the lifestyle change you have been thinking about for so long!

Update your goals and desires. 

Example: When I was young, I wanted to own a Ferrari, but that is no longer on my Dream List. I also wanted to own and operate one of the largest agricultural operations in the country; that idea does not appeal to me today. 

Our desires evolve and change. That’s fine. All I’m asking is that you create a Dream List that is current, real, and appealing to you. 

See yourself being successful with the items on it. Visualize the trip you have not taken, that course you wanted to pass, the health level you always have sought, or the relationship you’ve always envisioned. 

To assist you on your journey away from It’s Too Late, I am recommending five resources. 

  1. To be clear about your values, complete the Values Preference Indicator. This is your own opinion about your values.
  2. To help you with your health intentions, complete the Stress Indicator and Health Planner
  3. To increase your confidence, use the Self Worth Inventory.
  4. To understand and be clear about your preferred modes of personal operations, complete the Personal Style Indicator.
  5. To be clear about your direction in life, My Source EXPERIENCE Journal™ will help you discover your purpose and directions.

The greatest gift you can give to yourself and others is to embrace the possibilities and fulfill your calling. When you are on purpose with the passion and desire that follow, there will be no stopping you!
