“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
Everyday in our personal development we’re chasing something. There’s a force and urge that pushes us along. It’s pretty unconventional when you think about it, and I’m wondering if you’ve ever been able to place where that desire comes from.
It’s easier to keep it low key, yet we stretch ourselves in ways that challenge us. It’s more comfortable to keep things the same, but we choose to pursue change and the unpredictability that comes with it. I believe there’s something inside of us that is desperate to see who we were capable of becoming. It’s innate within us to explore self-mastery and work toward self-actualization. Dave Meltzer defines this invisible force by saying “We must be what we can be.” It’s just wired into us, and while we all approach this same force from unique angles (which are drawn from our own unique experiences), at the end of the day it’s just a different skin to the same core factors.
But within this pursuit, sometimes life gets in the way. Your priorities change and you lose sight of what used to be a priority. Circumstances change and you no longer have the same means to work toward things how you used to. Or even your interests could evolve into something that don't line up that vision you used to have for yourself. And sometimes we can go so far down the path without realizing we’re doing it, and when we look back we see how different things were then we expected, and give up on feeding that fire.
That’s why I want to share this quote with you - “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” Just because you’ve been out of shape for a few years now doesn’t mean that you can’t still get into the best shape of your life. Just because you neglected certain relationships doesn’t mean that person is gone and out of your life forever. Just because you have a certain reputation right now does not mean that the way others perceive you will always be that way. Just because you had a dream, and you expected to be further along on it by now, does not mean that it’s out of reach.
You can make the choice at any point to change your life! I mean this. But so often we disqualify ourselves because it seems like there’s so much that needs to be overcome to make things right. That’s a limiting belief. It’s self-sabotage, and the best day to reclaim the things that are most important to you in your life, is today. “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” That word ‘might’ is indefinite and undetermined. As long as it’s undetermined you can still create it for yourself.
