Age is Just a Number - Not a Limit

"Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." - Leroy "Satchel" Paige

13. 41. 65. Too often we allow our age to be an excuse for why we can't reach certain goals. It is a number - not a limitation. ‪#‎Compete‬ accordingly. Just look at these examples:

1) Helen Keller, at the age of 19 months, became deaf and blind. But that didn’t stop her. She was the first deaf and blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree.

2) Mozart was already competent on keyboard and violin; he composed from the age of 5.

3) Anne Frank was 12 when she wrote the diary of Anne Frank.

4) Roger Bannister was 25 when he broke the 4 minute mile record.

5) J.K. Rowling was 30 years old when she finished the first manuscript of Harry Potter.

6) Mark Twain was 40 when he wrote “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”, and 49 years old when he wrote “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”.

7) Henry Ford Was 45 when the Ford T came out.

8) Dr. Seuss was 54 when he wrote “The Cat in the Hat”.

9) Nelson Mandela was 76 when he became President.

10) And Flo Meiler ran hurdles for the first time – at the age of 65! She has since gone on to set 12 US records in track and field over the last 14 years.

You see. Age is only an excuse if you allow it to be one. So don't. Our age is too often used as an excuse as to why we can't achieve success. No more. It's time for the reminder that young, old, or anywhere in-between, our age is just a number - not a limit. Introducing, "Just a Number."
