Is it Ever Too Late to Begin Again? 5 Tips to Hitting Reset.

Feb 24, 2021


Life can happen pretty fast; in the blink of an eye, everything can change. 2020 certainly taught this point to just about everyone around the globe. Of course, not everything is that dramatic. Further, we see some things coming, some we don't, and some we are the catalyst. 

One thing is for sure, shift happens!

I want to focus on the change, specifically career, that we ourselves bring about and pose this question. Are we ever too old to embrace change and start again, and when we do, how do we adjust to the new reality of our choices?

Societal norms teach us, graduate high school, go to college, pick a career, keep our head down, build that retirement, retire. In theory, and I applaud the people who can and do, do this, but the reality is that many people get into careers chosen by others because it is expected. We have people who don't find passion till later in life or just get lost and pick what pays the bills. And one of the saddest of all is people who stay complacent due to fear that it is too late to hit the reset button.  

Fear be damned! Here are just a couple of examples of people who felt there were no limitations and weren't afraid of its dedication to bringing about change.

  • Colonial Sanders, 65, KFC  
  • Momofuku, 61, Cup of Noodles
  • Peter Roget, 73, Thesaurus 
  • Laura Ingalls, 65, Author
  • Ray Kroc, 50, McDonald's

So how do we get there? How do we take steps to change our reality and dare to create a life we love waking up to. 

  1. Make sure the changes that you are making are for yourself. True changes need to be for you and not others. You cannot find your happiness in chasing someone else's dream. 
  2. Make sure your dream aligns with your inner calling. When we make changes that genuinely light our soul, the hard work doesn't matter; the time it takes to build is of no consequence. 
  3. Shut out the naysayers. You cannot make all the people happy all the time, and when you go after what you want to do, there will be plenty of people lined up to knock you down.
  4. Release your own limiting beliefs. One thing is for sure it will not matter how many hours you put in, what latest and most excellent tools you have at your disposal. If you hold on to the limiting beliefs that have held you back until this point, you will only fall back into old patterns that have held you small for so long. 
  5. Work smarter, not harder. To get where you want to be, you must know where you are going. Create an achievable outcome. What is the end goal? How long will it take? Work it backward, placing in milestones and the activities needed at every step. 

The last thing I want to share is this. Get crystal clear on exactly what you want. Feel it and show up as that person that already has that reality, that company, that career. Every day, wake and ask yourself what is the one thing I can do today to embody the person who has ______? Apply the Law of Attraction with the Law of Action.
