Quote of the Day

Age is just a number. It doesn’t have to be a constraint on your life. You’re not on the scrapheap just because you’ve reached 50 or 60 or 70 or whatever. You can still learn something new and there are still places to go and explore. Perhaps you’re too old to play for Liverpool FC but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t get involved in football (or soccer as some prefer to call it) in some way. You may never be able to play the guitar like Jimmy Page but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t learn to play a musical instrument. You may never win an Oscar but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t get involved in amateur dramatics. And you may never outsell JK Rowling but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t write a book and get it published. With the Internet, eBooks and social media, the opportunities for making your name have never been greater. Today you can write an eBook, self-publish and sell it on Amazon. That’s exactly how EL James of ’50 Shades of Grey’ fame got started. If a book seems to be a big step, then how about writing a blog? WordPress is fairly easy to master and you can set up a blog very quickly. One of the advantages of age is that you’ve learned a lot along the way. You can share that wisdom and experience. You can make a real contribution if you want to. So why not have a go? It’s never too late to become the person you really could be. You’ve got a lot to offer. Don’t keep it all to yourself. That would be such waste.
