Hi, I hear so many people at midlife say they are too old to learn something new, to go back to college or university to study and retrain for a new career/life path, or even just for personal interest. Or they get told by other people they are too old.
I want to say...you are never ever too old to learn a new skill whether it is for your own personal development or whether it for professional development.
In my 40's I decided to change my career having worked predominately as a secretary/account assistant for much of my career life. I went back to college and retrained to become an Holistic Therapist.
In my 50's I decided to go to university to study for a degree in Complementary Healthcare and Health Studies. At the age of 59 I not only graduated but I set up my own business. My next step is to write my own book.
My grandmother wrote her first book in her 70's.
People say you cannot teach an old dog new skills...who says that is true? It is not true! For one thing we are humans capable of learning and growing all the time.
So my powerful message is you are never too old and it is too late. If you still have dreams then pursue them. Live life to the full. Bless you!
