The weather played nice with us this weekend in DC and I had a chance to enjoy it tremendously on Saturday. I was happy to help one of my cousins celebrate the completion of his doctorate degree in management.
This is an amazing accomplishment and feat under any circumstances, what's unique in this case is that my cousin is 63...you see, at the age of 53, he decided to start college while holding down a full-time job and raising his children.
Once he got started, he was motivated to keep trying for the next level, so over a period of almost ten years, through papers and tests and late night studying, he persevered until he completed his doctorate degree.
So today I challenge you...what dreams are you deferring or denying because you think it's too late? What steps are you not taking today because you have convinced yourself that it's too late to get started? More importantly, what dream crushers have you let into your life that keep telling you that your time has passed?
My cousin's accomplishment reminded me and I am reminding you that it's not and never too late for personal and career success. Today, my cousin works as a professor where his own daughter received her master's degree...now how's that for an inspiration!
