The Time is Now!
Recently, I spoke to a group of professionals who found themselves in the middle of their careers. Many had ten or more years of professional working experience, but hadn’t realized the career growth they anticipated. A few were committed to still chasing their dreams. Sadly, many others had resigned themselves to the idea that this was as good as it gets.
My reaction was simple: it’s never too late to become who you were born to be! Too often we focus on the past. Past opportunities that got away, past individuals we didn’t connect with, past ambitions we’ve let remain dormant. Well, there is no better time than NOW!
Now is the time to re-commit to your dream! Now is the time to revise your career goals! Now is the time to join that organization, take that class, get that degree, write that book, start that business! Yesterday is behind you, and tomorrow is not promised. All you have is NOW! Make the most of it.
