You’re Still Young!

August 22, 2022
Executive Coaching

I don’t care what age you are, it’s important to realize that thinking young will keep you young.


I live in a part of the country (Southern Florida) where people tend to live along time. We are in one of the Blue Zones, where some of us follow guidelines that should help us stay healthy and live as long as possible.


Sometimes I will meet people whom I think are much younger than they are. One example is a woman who is a clerk at a thrift store that was preparing to close down. She said that even though it was closing, she had another job lined up for the following week. She was 100 years old.


I also know a champion senior swimmer who consistently wins awards and sets records. He is 99.


A client I know likes to say, “There’s a reason the rearview mirror in the car is much smaller than the windshield.” The rearview mirror shows what’s passed, but the front windshield enables you to see a panoramic view of what is to come.


Are you as energized today as you’ve ever been? Are you focusing on all of the great things so come? You should be. You are living in an age where we may live a very long life. Now, go out and enjoy it.
