Why Today Is The Perfect Day To Change Your Life
“The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I am considering making some huge changes in my life.
I don’t want to quit my job….
But, I want to follow my passion.
I want to quit being average and become awesome right where I am.
I want to help more people become what they want to be in life, and help them to achieve their goals.
Here are two things that I have learned along the way:
Our Days Are Numbered
It’s never too late to change our lives, but our days are numbered.
I can’t tell you how many days you have left.
I can tell you that the lifespan of the average American is 76.8 years or 28,708 days.
What does that mean for you?
If you are 30 years old you have 17,094 days to change your life
If you are 40 years old you have 13,441 days to change your life
If you are 50 years old you have 9,789 days to change your life
If you are 60 years old you have 6,136 days to change your life
Our days are numbered…
Our life is short…
We need to use every day that we have to create the life that we were created to live.
Here’s the good news…
It’s Never Too Late
I have been thinking that I would love to change my life.
Start a new career.
Do something awesome with my life.
But I was thinking that it might be too late for me.
Then I was introduced to a couple of people who started late in life and still managed to make a huge impact:
- Julia Child didn’t start cooking until she was 40 and started her well-known TV show at age 50.
- Ray Kroc was 52 years old when he started McDonald’s.
- Winston Churchill became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at age 62
- Harland David Sanders started Kentucky Fried Chicken at age 65
- Mary Wesley (one of Britain’s most successful novelists) published her first novel at age 71
None of them were in their 20’s or 30’s, but they all made a decision to change their lives.
You and I can make the decision to change our lives too.
It doesn’t matter how young or old we are.
All it takes is a choice.
We CAN chose to change our Life today.
Today, you might be 30, 40, 50 or even older.
It doesn’t matter how old you are.
What matters is that you want to change your life.
It is never too late to make a change.
Don’t wait until tomorrow.
Change your life today.
