“No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning.”
– Barbara de Angelis
There is never a time frame to any human achievement, no deadlines to setting new goals or to dreaming a new dream, it all depends on the individual. At any point in our life, we can choose to set a new trail, to follow a new path and see it through.
Here are some good news to inspire you that at any point in life, it’s never too late or too early to live your dreams.
Age they say is no barrier but a limitation that festers in the mind and a 74-year-old grandmother has proven that to be true. The pacesetting grandma, based in the U.K., did not just become a graduate but a first class graduate in Psychoanalytic Studies. She inspires us never to let age succeed in letting us quit on new achievements but we should watch age fail as we embark on building new bridges instead of walls.
On starting early, 9-year-old Lola Glass, known as @lolatheillustrator on Instagram, is the youngest street artist in the world. Lola, a young Brooklyn artist, was discovered at age 6 by Joe Ficalora, the founder of Bushwick Collective, who spotted the youngster drawing a mural by the more well-known street artist, Beau Stanton. She got an invite to join the ranks of Ficalora’s grand street artist group. Lola is making hay while the sun shines, inspiring us to create a new beginning for ourselves by daring to take the starting steps.
As well, Nigerian comedian, Craze Clown, graduated from the University of Kiev in Ukraine with a degree in Medicine. At a time when many young people in the entertainment industry would have thought it was too late to focus on school, this young man proves that you can achieve whatever you set your mind to, regardless of who you are and what you do.
There’s a saying that, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” so what better way to raise a generation of capable adults who have the knowledge required in making financial decisions than to start imbibing such knowledge in the younger generation. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is proffering solutions to tackle one of the root problems of financial instability in the country by developing and introducing a Financial Education curriculum for Basic and Senior Secondary Schools. CBN intends to impart financial discipline in the younger population, and expectedly, with more financial intelligence there is a very good chance of creating a financially stable economy and with resultant overall economic growth and development in the country.
Life is full of rich opportunities don’t build a wall of restrictions for yourself rather chase your dreams never say never till you get your desired results.
Stay inspired and have a wonderful week ahead.
