Hey welcome Jeff Heggie Daily Success Strategies. Thanks for being with me today. Today. I want to talk about something that I hear quite often, and it’s, especially when I talk to people that have been in their career or different things for awhile, and they talk about the things they wish they would have done in their lives. They wish they would have started a business. They wished they would have taken a chance. They wished they would have done all these things, but now they’ve been in a certain role or they’re at a certain age that they don’t think they can do it anymore. And the example I always give them is Colonel Sanders with Kentucky Fried Chicken. He started that when he was 61 years old and look what it is now. And so what’s holding you back from starting something, age is just a number and it doesn’t mean because you’re a certain age you’re locked in and you can’t do the things that you really want to and really desire to do.
Jeff Heggie (00:51):
You can still do those. I got something from one of my coaches today, someone that coaches me on a regular basis and I was reading it. And that’s why I wanted to talk about it today because there’s a number of people on his list that actually expanded my how I looked at this. So I’m going to read you what he sent me. Ray Kroc opened his first McDonald’s at age 52. Rodney Dangerfield was 46 when he got his break. Martha Stewart was over 50 before she started her brand. Stan Lee of Marvel comics was 42 when he started. Henry Ford was 41 When he founded Ford motor company, Melissa McCarthy was 41 when her wheels started turning Robert Noyce was also 41 when he started Intel. Morgan Freeman was 52 when he got his first big break, a Joy Behar was 55. When she started The View. Chaleo Yoovidhya was 61

When he started Red Bull. Judy Dench wasn’t famous until 61. Colonel Sanders was 61 when he started Kentucky fried chicken. So I want you to think about that and think about how successful those people have become and the things they’ve achieved and when they started. So if you’re looking at yourself and thinking, I wish I would’ve done that, I wish I could’ve been this. I wish I could’ve been that, but I can’t now because I’m 40, I’m 50, I’m 60 I’m 70. I don’t care how old you are. There’s still time. 2020 is the year to do it. If there’s ever been a time that you want to reset, that you want to take advantage of opportunities. Now’s the time to do it. This is the year that has thrown everything into a loop. And it’s given you the opportunity that if you want to do something now is the perfect time to do it.
Jeff Heggie (02:36):
