“You are only as young as you feel.”
An older cheetah doesn’t look at younger cheetahs in jealousy. Age is very much a human construct. It is an imaginary number we have created. A way to measure how many times around the sun someone has traveled.
But no one cares other than humans how old you are.
The reason I say this is because the science says the older we get, the more rigid we become. We stay in our ways, get comfortable with our thought patterns, we think we have things figured out. Nothing can be further from the truth. No matter how set we are there is still room for change. Our brains are plastic. It just takes more effort.
Leonard Cohen didn’t begin his music career until his 30s. Hallelujah was initially rejected. Bob Moore was 45 before he opened up his first Mill.
You don’t need more time, you just need to start.
