It's Never Too Late to make a change in your life!
We are joined by Maricia Johns from This is Your Best Year to talk about changing your life, no matter your situation, age, or station in life!
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis
“If the path you’re walking on seems to be leading you to nowhere, stop and choose another. It’s never too late to change direction.” Anonymous
“It’s never too late for a new beginning in your life.” Joyce Meyer
When you can’t change the direction of the wind — adjust your sails - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
People who didn’t start seeing success until late in life:
Martha Stewart had worked on Wall Street and owned a Connecticut catering firm, but her real success came after age 41 with the publication of her first book, Entertaining, and the launch of Martha Stewart Living seven years later
Donald Fisher, At age 41, after a series of entrepreneurial ventures, Fisher and his wife Doris Fisher founded The Gap. It's now a $16 billion a year company with more than 3,200 locations worldwide.
Julia Child - Her first cookbook was published when she was 39; she made her television debut in The French Chef at age 51.
Rodney Dangerfield - The late, great comedic actor was best known for his roles in 1980s movies like Caddyshack and Back to School, but he was 46 before he got his first big break--on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. -- Emma Stone
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. -- Dr. Seuss
It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. -- Albert Einstein
“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe
Fear and doubt will stop us from achieving our goals and will keep us on a path that others have prescribed for us... Making your own way, upsetting the status quo, changing directions is hard and it's sometimes frightening. But you have to know that sometimes things will be worse if you never change anything.
I did one of our short shows this week, and the quote was: Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. George Bernard Shaw... The point I made on that show (Yesterday) was that life is a changing journey and it will change you. Maybe you weren't ready to start your own business or change careers when you were in your twenties or even your thirties... but the experience and strength you have gained in your journey have made you a person that CAN follow your passions.
If your life isn't going in a direction that you want, then take a look around... what changes can you make that will get you headed in the direction you want. Sometimes it's a few small changes, sometimes it's walking away from everything and starting over... only you can know what needs to change. But you can do it!
Don't let people tell you that your dreams or the direction you have chosen for your life is wrong... those people aren't the sort who will help you reach the top anyway.
Never be afraid to start over, change directions, or build something new... plenty of people have followed their passions, often while being told they were foolish or with no support. If you truly want something out of life, then all you need is the dream, your goals, a plan, and the commitment to make it happen.
You are going to spend a large part of your life working... there is NO reason to spend that time doing something you hate... there is no reason to even spend it doing something you don't Like, for the most part. You can do anything and be anything you want.... at any point, at any age, and in any situation, it's not too late. Go out and build a life, in any direction you want, that you will love. And fill that life with people who will support you. It is never too late to find the right path!
