Over the years, Ive admired others who successfully built a business and achieved their dream life thinking, that an Entrepreneur was for others and not me….the average student who left school before she was 16!
As a Baby Boomer I figured I had missed the boat (so to speak) and it was too late to get on the Entrepreneur path.
But what I have learnt in the last few years is that it is Never Too Late!
I came across this article on the Entrepreneur website, and in particular this infographic by Funders and Founders (below) which I thought was an excellent way to visually show how most of us go thru life, not knowing where the path to success can be.
As Catherine Clifford from Entrepreneur, states “Fret not if you are over 40 and have yet to start your own business. There’s still time. And chances are, if you’ve worked a while, you’ve learned a thing or two about life and business that will be helpful, too.”
Can you relate to this Lost in Life infographic?
Where do you fit on the Lost in Life scale….. 20s to 30s?….40s or 50s? Or beyond?
Life is definitely not like a straight road, it has roundabouts, hills, potholes, and crossroads.
But having a vision and learning from the wrong or right turns we take in life is what can make us wiser and ready for just the right season!
As they say Life is a Journey….Not a Destination!
Do you have a roadmap of where you are going in the next year, 3 years, 5, years, 10 years and even 20 years from now?
This is the vehicle that got me started on my entrepreneurial journey, when I made the decision to choose a new path.
If you are Lost in Life and looking for some direction, don’t wait another day and live to regret it years later, plant the seed today!
In the words of Ghandi….
Be the change you want to see in the world!
