Have you ever asked someone how old they are and it actually takes them a minute to answer you? As if they truly forgot… I believe it’s moments like these that produce a subtle fear of age in young people.
If you know me well, you know I love to dream. I love to launch businesses and movements and ideas. In my opinion, it’s dreaming which makes life so vibrant.
As we grow old, many forget this important art. We become stuck in routines, responsibilities, and predictabilities. We feel irrelevant and lack the energy to pursue ideas like we used to.
But let’s remember this, even though you hear about hundreds of twenty-somethings launching companies and careers from Facebook to new tech devices, their smarts are only as strong as their wisdom.
Which leads me to my point. Age has something that youthfulness will never have. Experience, discernment, patience, and perspective. And even though I have already posted this video a few months ago, I believe the older generations might need to hear again.
When it comes to chasing a dream or starting a company, what a person might lack in youthful energy comes back multiplied in wisdom.
As you may have expected, dreaming has no age limit. It’s the fuel for life. I don’t care if you’re 55, 43, or 86… go start something new, take an adventure with your spouse, and shake the very foundations of our culture. We need it.
