Is It Too Late?

When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be?

It’s something we as adults ask kids all the time. And for most kids, the response changes numerous times.

Doctor, lawyer, actor, musician, or even garbage collector. It might be to follow in Mom or Dad’s footsteps and pursue that career.

I love Microsoft’s commercial that aired during the Superbowl. That commercial where Katie Sowers, San Francisco’s offensive assistant coach, reads the beginning of a short piece she wrote as a kid: “I hope someday I will be on a real football team.” If you haven’t seen it check it out HERE. It’s a wonderful inspiration to young ladies to follow their dreams.

But let’s go beyond that.

“What do you want to be?” can also focus on our physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

To me these secondary desires are just as important, if not more important, than the career path you are looking to follow.

These are things like

  • I want to BE healthier.
  • I want to BE more patient.
  • I want to BE more independent.

I think, however, that the most important part of this quote is its beginning: “It’s never too late…”

For most of us, it is never to late to

  • pursue a new career.
  • go back to school and complete a degree.
  • learn a new creative skill.
  • learn to be more giving.
  • learn to be more understanding.
  • become healthy.
  • get active.

The list could go on and on.

So let me ask you, what is it that you want to be because it is truly never too late and for most things you are never too old.
