You are never too old to do this...

As the late great British novelist C.S. Lewis once said, "You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream."

I totally concur.

Whether you want to switch careers at 40, make new friends at 50, or travel the world at 60, your age should not hinder you from striving to achieve goals big and small.

I've read success stories about senior citizens starting new businesses, skydiving, finding love, and achieving other impressive feats.

We can't assume that they didn't at least try to accomplish these things earlier in life. Maybe it just wasn't in the cards for them at that juncture, or it took a few repeated attempts before things worked out.

These individuals inspire younger generations to pursue their passions at full throttle. Their remarkable achievements send a clear message: That it's better late than never. Just because you can't achieve something, say, in your 30s, doesn't mean you can't achieve it later in life.

For someone who wants something badly enough, age isn't going to get in their way. They take the necessary steps to make it happen and don't give up until they've reached the finish line. They don't worry about not being alive to see their dream fulfilled because they live for today.
