With a new year rapidly upon us I thought it time to share a cheesy motivational message (apologies).
Not long before Christmas I had a conversation with my 11 year old who was at the time tapping her feet like crazy around the house in some lovely old tap shoes she had been given by the lovely Jane from a certain south Newtown op shop.
The conversation went along the lines:
ME: :Why don’t you start tap lessons next year?”
Miss 11: “What? Oh I’m too old, all the other kids will have been doing it for years”.
ME: “You’re too old!?!?! You’re 11! Of course you’re not too old!!!”.
This conversation totally dismayed me because, apart from a few certain, mostly sporting, ambitions, most avenues are open to us at any age. But many of us fall into the trap of thinking we’ve missed the boat, and then cement in this inaction with a sprinkling of I’m too busy, I’m too tired, or it’s all too hard.
So for all who have a dream to follow, whether you’re to be a famous vigneron, writer or photographer, start now! It’s not too late! Book a course, write something, do anything… and set a goal! Oh, and if you’re afraid you’ll fail, the inconvenient truth is that if you don’t try it’s an automatic fail, so you might as well have a crack.
Have a great new year and I hope Santa was a greater success for you than he was for my 6 year old daughter whose sole wish was for a real magic wand Ciao!
