It's never too late

"For what it's worth: It's never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start over."

- F. Scott Fitzgerald.

When I look at a quote like that, I think of the following guy:

No, not the good looking guy in the centre of the photo wearing his Barkers top. I mean the guy on the left, Colonel Sanders.

Harland David Sanders founded Kentucky Fried Chicken at a late age in life. He had many jobs and formed many businesses before he made it big with KFC.

The lesson we can learn is that, as F. Scott Fitzgerald says in the above quote, it is never too late.

We have this idea in our society that you have to have thus by this age and this by this age and that by that age.

As the Sunscreen song says:

"The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't."

If you want to create something, start doing something.

If you want to start a new sport and you are 45 years old, then that is perfectly fine. Who says you have to be 15 to start it?

If you want to change your image, then do it. We have these really bad phrases in out language, "mutton dressed as lamb." Who cares? If you want to wear that then go ahead.

Although, in saying that I do agree with the phrase: "Dress for the body that you have not for the body that you want." However, there is no reason, why you can't work hard for that body that you want. If you do that you will find many benefits.

At the end of the day, just don't be an arrogant bastard which has nothing to do with today's post. I just wanted to show this photo.

Apparently, it is quite a well-known American beer. Sorry, it was the first time for me to see it.

Nobody likes a real arrogant bastard. A confident guy on the other hand is another story. Although there is a real fine line between being arrogant and being confident. Try not to cross it. You will find that if you do, you will open up a whole new can of worms.
