You Are Never Too Old To Set Another Goal [Start Today]

When I was a teenager, I was convinced that my life would be over at age 30. Now, at age 30, I’m convinced that my life will be just beginning when I hit 40 or 50.

If you’re stuck in the same loop of feeling like you’ve accomplished nothing by your mid-20s (or even earlier), it’s time to stop and take a moment to reflect on what really matters in life.

Sometimes you can’t see the top of the mountain until you’ve climbed the first 20 feet.

“Sometimes you can’t see the top of the mountain until you’ve climbed the first 20 feet,” writes William Arthur Ward. And this is true for everything in life—even setting goals.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of your goals, but it’s important to remember that every goal can be broken down into smaller steps. If you don’t know where to start, think about what motivates or excites you most about reaching your end goal and look at what actions will help get there.

You have to win some to lose some.

But even the most successful people in life have had to deal with failure. There are no exceptions, and if you want to get better at something, you’re going to have to deal with losing some (and sometimes a lot) before you win.

Let’s say that I’m a terrible basketball player, but I want to become better at it—I can’t just keep playing my friend’s kid brother every day until he gets all of his shots blocked, right? I need someone who will play against me on my level so that we can learn from each other and improve together without getting frustrated or bored.

So what does this mean for your goals? Well, it means that if you want them badly enough, then the only way for them not only survive but thrive despite setbacks is by sticking with them even when things seem hopeless—and maybe even keep going even after they seem like they’re working out perfectly!

If nothing else works out this time around either; I promise there won’t be any hard feelings from me when we meet again next week…

Even if you fall short of your goal, you’ll still be pretty damn high up.

At the end of the day, it’s not about reaching the top of a mountain—it’s about climbing it for as long as you can and enjoying the view from wherever you find yourself on that journey.

When you set out to climb Mount Everest, it’s easy to get caught up in the idea of reaching the top. After all, your goal is to get there—and that’s what everyone else around you is doing too.

But if you look closely at any adventurer who has conquered this peak, they will tell you that they weren’t thinking about reaching the summit when they stepped onto that first step.

You’ll eventually realize that “I can’t” is a lie.

You will eventually realize that “I can’t” is a lie. The only way to get to the top is by trying and putting in the effort. You’ve never seen yourself as someone who could do something, but you have to try, try and try again! You’ll surprise yourself with what you can achieve when you put your mind to it.

You don’t have to be perfect, you just need to try. You can do it!

Nothing looks as intimidating once you get closer to it.

  • You might not be able to see it now, but you are closer to your goal than you think.
  • The more you practice something, the more you realize that it is possible.
  • The more knowledge or experience with a subject that you have, the less intimidating it becomes.
  • And the more time and effort that goes into doing something (or working on a project), the easier it gets!

You may have to bail along the way and come back later, but that’s OK.

Well, it’s your life. You can always re-set your goal if you want to. You can always try again. You can go back and make adjustments along the way until you figure out what works for you. And if nothing else, at least now you’ve got a better understanding of how this whole “goal setting” thing works!

The best thing you can do when it comes to setting goals is to be honest with yourself. What are your motivations? What are your fears? Why are you choosing this goal? If you can’t answer these questions, then maybe it’s time to reevaluate before jumping into anything.

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, but the second best time is today!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is today.

The reason why you don’t have to plant a tree in order to succeed is because you can start working towards your goals right now and then, when you’re ready, start planting trees!

If you want to get to the top of the mountain, then it’s important that you start climbing today.

The only way to get to the top of the mountain is by starting at the bottom and working your way up. If you want to be successful, then it’s important that you start now!

The only way to the top is through hard work, persistence and faith in yourself.

The only way to the top is through hard work, persistence and faith in yourself.

Hard work can be fun, but it also takes persistence. Persistence means sticking with your goals even when you’re tired or discouraged, and not giving up when times get tough.

You must have faith in yourself and believe that you are worthy of success if you want to achieve it! You can’t expect to succeed right away; sometimes it will take time for things to come together for you as well as for others who may be working towards similar goals.

Don’t let fear hold you back from attempting something new or challenging yourself by setting new goals – because at the end of the day what matters most is how much enjoyment we get out of life!

Sometimes you have to fail at something in order to realize how much you want it.

It can be hard to imagine yourself in a position where you’re failing at something, but sometimes that’s exactly what you need in order to get your head back on straight. Asking for help is never a sign of weakness—it’s just another step toward growing as a person and learning from past mistakes.

That being said, it’s totally normal if you’re afraid of failure at first. But eventually, hopefully sooner rather than later, you’ll realize that failure doesn’t mean the end—it means an opportunity for growth!

If you would’ve quit yesterday, you wouldn’t be here today.

If you have a dream, you must keep on striving for it. It’s not about money or fame, but about the journey and being able to say that I did something that I love doing.

We are all capable of doing great things in our lives if we just believe in ourselves and never give up on our dreams, no matter how difficult they seem at first glance!

The most important thing to remember is not to give up when things get tough because if you do that then there’s no way for your dreams to come true!

Your attitude toward life will determine whether or not you succeed or fail in whatever goal(s) you may set along your path as an entrepreneur…

People succeed by trying repeatedly and by not giving up on themselves and their goals!

You are never too old to set another goal, no matter what anyone else says. Success is not a destination, it’s a journey. If you keep trying and don’t give up on yourself, then you will succeed. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something or that there is some age limit on your dreams. The only way to fail is by giving up!

No matter how long it takes to get there, just keep going towards your goal and one day soon the light at the end of the tunnel will become brighter than ever before.


You will succeed if you are willing to try again, and again and again. You may not get there right away, but eventually you will reach your goal if you keep working hard at it.

Never give up on yourself because the only way to get where you want is through hard work and persistence!
