So I’m nearly 40… 39 to be exact. I feel like I’m in my golden years and so I want to share what a friend of mine shared with me about this stage of life to accelerate growth:
“Look, when you’re between 25 and 50 or 25 and 45, these are like your golden years where you’re full of energy. You have loads to give. You can work 10 hours a day or more. You have loads of energy for whatever it is you’re doing for work. But once you get past 45, your energy levels start changing.”
I’m hoping to keep my energy up beyond 45 (although that probably means sorting out my fitness routine- that’s another story altogether) but the reality is that yeah, your energy levels and priorities probably do start changing beyond this stage of life.
It’s important that during the golden years you take the advantage to accelerate growth and run with it.
So, if you’re like me, you’re in the golden years and you have this energy and you can do loads of things and you’ve got hundreds of things going on- make sure that you push through because this is a unique time.
Be actively aware that this is your time. This is the moment for you to excel at what you do. This is the best time for you to push beyond what you’d normally do.
No Resting On Your Laurels
This isn’t the time to relax and sit back.
This is the time in your life, in your career, in your business where you can get really big results.
Put in the big energy and the time right now, while you still can.
Your energy levels are peaking and they won’t be the same when you’re turning 50. You’re not going to be able to do what you’re doing now.
Now is the time to push through, double down, work hard and put in the time to achieve your results.
