Dear Alexander #12: You’re Never Too Old
It kill’s me to see people use “being old” as an excuse to stop moving forward. You’re so young — letting you’re chronological age stop you from taking action on any ambition you have is a huge mistake!
Sam Walton was 44 when he started Walmart.
Sidney Frank started Grey Goose in his 70s.
Vera Wang entered the fashion industry at 40.
Ray Kroc opened his first McDonald’s at 52.
Harland Sanders franchised KFC at 62.
THOSE EXAMPLES RIGHT THERE should donate you additional confidence to ATTACK LIFE no matter what age you are. I hope you read back on this in your 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond and still feel audacious enough to climb down old mountains to climb up new one’s.
It’s okay for it to take a long time. You have so much time…be patient.
