It's never too late

timeRecently I have had to deal with a few deaths in my family and also the death of a truly dear friend.

These events have rocked my world somewhat and have made me take a look at my life more closely. I started thinking about my own dreams and ambitions. Have I done all the things that I set out to do? Have I achieved those goals that I set for myself so many years ago?

Well for the most part, I have. I have achieved so many great things in my life that I am truly proud of, but there are a few things that I still need to work on.

Maybe you are in the same situation as I am. Do you ever think about those goals that you haven't quite yet mastered? Do you think that there may be one or two more goals that you could still go after? It could be that trip you said you would take to another country before the year ended – and that was last year.

But it is never too late.

Goals you set are not always about business. Sometimes they can be about entertainment and leisure. They can be about making yourself feel better and also doing things that you always wanted to do. I realize that in order to be successful in life you must also do things that make you happy. You don't want to go through your life being apprehensive about doing things that you want to do. If you are not a person that does things for yourself, then a change might be something that is needed. It's a difference in living life and living life.

I share this to say that as you are working on achieving those life-changing goals, also remember to do things that change your life for the better. Take time to enjoy your friends and family and do things that bring you closer together. If you've set a goal in the past to be closer to your loved ones, make this the year that you do so. Achieve your goals and continue on your success journey, but remember to take time to enjoy life along the way.

And as always, stay focused, stay determined and keep striving for greatness.
