We are a product of our environment and our choices. We cannot re-wind the past, but we can certainly learn from it so that we can do a better job of living in the now and the future.

Really good thing to share people, short sentence with in-depth thought,

Always I feel comfortable to keep learning form people, especially Friday reflection and other stories….

Appreciate your sharing…

You are never too old to start something new. Correct? (:-

Anand

Excerpt from the book AGELESS BODY TIMELESS MIND By Deepak Chopra:
The renowned religious writer Huston Smith once declared, "In order to live, man must believe in that for which he lives." People languish and die whey their core belief is gone. The most meaningful thing you can live for is to reach your full potential. At any given age the body and mind you experience are but a tiny fraction of the possibilities still open to you-there are always infinite new skills, insights, and depth of realization ahead of you.

Didn't some one send this quote to me only yesterday? “The greatest waste in the world is the difference between what we are and what we could become.” Ben Herbste

Love the story and point maid about “The only person that can tell you when it's over is you. You decide when to keep walking the path, putting one foot in front of the other. And no matter what age, what your circumstance, it is never too late to be what you can become.” So timely for me as I am yet again reaching end of the rope in my current company but the story is inspiring me NOT to call it a done just yet. It’s me who would be calling it done and NOT the company. Since I want to continue to work and stay busy, make a difference and be value add in everything I do, I want to keep going as I am convinced, I am NOT ready to retire. Thanks for the inspiration buddy!

Thanks for the reminder - The best time is now!

Thanks for the email reminder – great story, well written

This was a good one (and so was last week’s)..I was thinking it will be great to create an dynamic archive (ongoing list of examples) listing people who have demonstrated that “it’s never too late to be what you can become”..you had the few examples but if you make it interactive and solicit examples many more will come out that will be even more inspirational..in any case, good start to the Friday..thanks AM

very good. the author this week must have an excellent mentor. J

It is wonderful to see the encouragement readers draw from this piece and it resonates with me too on a personal level. But I'd also like to acknowledge the beautiful writing of the author. My impression is he has inherited the skills of reflection and optimism from his father and combined it with his own artistic flair to produce a great piece of writing that will be viewed as a Friday Reflection Top 10 over the long term. I encourage him to persevere with his endeavors - we all benefit from them.

For ne, as the age growth, I realize that instead of dream, we need to set our principle correctly from youth ... everyday has so much to discover ...why must only limit ourselves to the dream ?
Life going on a tour, destination is just a pre planned activity, if you slow down and look around, you will see more wonders ...even you miss the destination at the end, you will not regret to ride on this trip.

Thanks for sharing Anand!
What a beautiful way to start the long weekend.

Carol

Yep, I remember when a friend sent Susan Boyle's debut performance. Very good, but mainly very inspiring!

Gloria

Great. "Now" is the right time!

Mina

Beautiful story. Excellent reminder. Thanks!

Shardamandir Friend

👌very encouraging. You should never give up your dreams. Self confidence plays the key role Susan learned singing at late age and won the award. Ratan Tata told the same thing that at any age you can start learning and fulfill your dreams
You achieve Success after the experiences of failures. You learn from your failure

“ The only person that can tell you when it's over is you.” How true! 😊
