Winner’s Circle Network with Lou Tice – 3/18/08 – “Never Too Late to Change”
Today let’s discuss some answers to the following question: “When is it too late for people to change?”
You know, there are a lot of people out there who believe that it’s never too late to change, and in general, I’m one of them. I certainly believe that positive change can be achieved at any and every age, and in just about every human condition.
Now, I believe this because I’ve seen it happen over and over again. There simply is no upper limit to the age at which people can choose to grow and change. But there’s a catch to believing it’s never too late, and that’s what bothers me a bit.
If you believe that no matter when you start out you will never be too late, it can lead to chronic procrastination. Change becomes something that’s always down the road, always in the future, always something you are going to do someday. But you know, there is one thing that waiting until tomorrow will make you too late for, and that’s the fullness of life today.
Just think about it. Every time you make a positive change in your life, it leads you to doors of opportunity and well-being that you couldn’t even see before you made the change. It also enables you to make other changes more quickly and easily. And it’s not just you reaping the benefits – it is everyone with whom you come into contact.
So you see, while it may never be too late to begin, the sooner you begin the greater your opportunity for gain.
