Are you using the excuse that you’re too old to make any big changes? Well, today’s my birthday! I’m not exactly young (but I don’t feel old!). I started playing percussion in a band at age 47 and I’m still playing!
My first two companies were started while homeschooling our 2 kids with no money and through 5 layoffs. This company was started after age 50 and after a serious accident. Anything is possible.
The ingredients of change
In order to move forward, you need the following ingredients:
1) Desire: You have to have a really strong desire or it won’t happen.
2) Decision: You have to commit to make a move. Once it gets to the point that you can’t stand where you are, the decision is easy.
3) Deadline: You can’t wimp out and say you’ll make a move “someday”. Give yourself a deadline.
4) Designated encourager/accountability partner: You’ll need to find someone believes in your goal or dream and who will hold you accountable. This is where a coach comes in handy. Choose one whom you connect with, who has been where you are, and who has experience and a solid track record.
Yes, it’s my birthday but I’d like to offer YOU some gifts! In addition to the Ebook on my website and free weekly newsletter (sign up now, if you haven’t already!), I’d like to offer you a complimentary 30 min. no obligation strategy session. Click here for more info!
