MN Business Tip Of The Day: Don’t Let Age Stop You From Pursuing Your Professional Aspirations

January 21, 2014  |  


Achieving a high-level of success isn’t easy. Going after your dreams is fraught with fears and doubts sure to trip you up along the way.

For those of us who have been working a 9-to-5 for many years but daydream about taking the leap into entrepreneurship, one barrier to that dream is the belief that you’re too old.

“I’m too old to break into that industry.”

“I’m too old to change tracks and do what I would really love to be doing.”

If you’ve ever had any of these thoughts, you may need a little help getting unstuck. Remember it is your attitude toward age that truly makes or breaks your ability to take a leap of faith. While some may feel they are too old, still others end up feeling they are too young. This belief causes them to feel they won’t be taken seriously going after their chosen dream or that they don’t have the right age to be considered a leader to their employees.

Choose to invest your time doing what you really want to do instead of thinking it’s too late or too early. Don’t bring yourself down with negative thoughts. Just make the decision to start NOW.
