It's Not Too Late

There's Always Time to Pursue Your Dreams

One of the biggest lies we often tell ourselves is that “it’s too late” … when we talk about something we wish did or tried.

I read about two different men – one is graduating high school at the age of 68; the other is graduating college at the age of 90.  I’m sure at some point – and probably for years, each one of them thought the opportunity to achieve those goals had long passed them by.  But for each of them, that wasn’t true.  The idea that it was too late was just a lie.

Looking back wistfully on what could have been or what I should have done, creates one of the worst feelings - regret.  Regrets bogs us down and holds us back.  How about less regrets?  Wouldn't that be great?

Surely there is at least one thing in your life where you have thought I wish I would have done that?  Think about what that is – and then ask yourself the question, “Is it really not possible?”  If it’s not, then your challenge today is to resolve to go pursue that dream and live a life with less regrets.
