Hey Family, how is your week? I hope it has been going well. I am writing this from Ohio as I am out visiting some friends and family with my daughter Jaya. Though I am technically on vacation, I have been working 2-4 hour days on getting things together for Enter Shaolin’s improvements and success. 🙂
While thinking about what to write for this week’s update, I came across a video that is a great inspiration. I get people all the time in their 30’s asking if it is too late for them to start training. I laugh because 1. I started my training at 32 1/2 years of age and I am so glad I didn’t think it was too late for me or Enter Shaolin wouldn’t exist and I’d still be feeling incomplete. Boo, right!? 2. Why is it so many people think their life is over in their 30’s? I mean where the heck is this lie coming from?
Whether you are thirty something or ninety something you are not old. You are only old if you’ve given up on learning and growing. It’s when you decide to stop doing these things is when you have become old, you have become that old dog that can’t learn new tricks. It’s not age that makes you old or young, it’s your mentality. Which is why you can meet a young person that sounds like some grumpy ‘old’ man and why you can find an elder in their 80’s plus whose eyes and cheeks light up just like newborn babe!
To me your life is really just beginning at 30, well at least your adult life that is. 😉 And when we look at people throughout history who have done amazing things, plenty of them didn’t make it big or do anything major with their life until they were in their 30’s and many beyond that.
I also believe you should always be learning and growing, because seriously what’s the point of living if you aren’t growing? To grow you have to learn, you have to breakthrough limiting beliefs, you have to push yourself to be more at any age and especially when you are in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and so on, so you are motivated to live!
As long as you have breath, there’s still more in you. Do you really want to go to your grave not using all your stuff? Not using the gifts and talents you have been blessed with? Not giving yourself or this life all you got?
I hope after watching this video with a special guy by the name of Deshun Wang, that if there was any seeds of doubt that it’s never too late to get started on your dreams, goals and passions, that after watching this your doubt is squashed.
It’s people like Deshun and so many other inspirations I’ve been blessed with learning about over the past several years, that drive me to know despite so many giving up on living that the passion and fire inside of me to be more and do more is not in vain. Heck, I’m just getting started!
Without further ado…
Watch Be The Fiercest by Deshun Wang:
Isn’t brother Dashun amazing? And guess what? He’s not anything more special than you or me…
You have all kinds of awesomeness in you, the question is are you using all your stuff and if not are you going to start doing so now? Let me know in the comments what you have done to defy the world’s made up age restrictions, and…
If you never started defying the made up limitations of age, what are you going to do now that you know age is just a number?
I’m looking forward to hearing from you in the comments soon! 🙂
