I Am Too Old Now To Live A Life Dream

Continuing with the ‘Excuses That Destroy Life Dreams’ feature, here is #2 that people make for not taking action with pursuing a life dream, I am going to cover one of the most common excuses used… ‘I am too old now’.

The excuse of I am too old now is just a limiting belief, I mean c’mon what has age got to do with making a life dream come true and living your life of passion and purpose?

Unfortunately time travel has not yet been made possible for us – at the moment – so unless you can go back in time to your younger self, you are going to have to deal with the fact that you either get over it and do it anyway, or remain with your age insecurity and limiting belief and become that life failure that you have never wanted to become.

Let’s get real here, giving up on a life dream and ignoring your life purpose and passion is a real epic life fail. It’s made even worse by using your age for a reason not to do it.

I myself am a late bloomer and I did not find my life purpose, passion and what I wanted to do with my life until I turned 38. Everything I was doing prior to that was, as I say, my apprenticeship period, everything I was doing was leading me up to what I am doing now.

In the book by Napoleon Hill Think & Grow Rich, he talks about the capacity to achieve great success happens between the age of 40 and 60 and it’s rare for anyone to enter into any creative field before the age of 40. This is not just conjecture either, these facts have been based on a study of thousands of men and women.

It is also documented that the years between 40 and 50 are the most fruitful.

If you want evidence of this just do a Google search for late bloomers in life or visit Funders & Founders for charts of some hugely successful and famous people who did not start until late in life.

So called ‘late-bloomers’ get a bad rap. Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword- it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life’s pains. Good thing we aren’t being penalized for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines.


So with this in mind, do you still think ‘I am too old now’ is a valid reason to continue holding yourself back from doing something that is important to you? Is it still a worthy excuse to turn your back on pursuing your life purpose and passion?

But just to totally destroy this excuse and get it listed on The Biggest BullS**t Excuses Of All Time Wall of Fame… here are just a couple of people who have done a truly amazing thing at a very late age…

  • Yuichiro Miura 80 – Summited Mount Everest in 2013
  • Armand Gendreau 101 – Guinness World Record tandem skydive jump
  • Frank Dobesh 57 – 100 mile bike ride, 10 years prior, suffered inoperable brain tumour
  • Margaret Ringenberg 72 – Flew around the world
  • Barbara Hillary 75 – Cancer survivor, 1st black woman to reach the North Pole

If your still not convinced, then either get someone to slap you repeatedly until your cheeks feel red raw and swollen, or go for something less painful, but either way you need to something to shock you out of your limiting beliefs surrounding age.
