Lou Ludwig Success Tips: There is No Age Limit on Your Dreams

There is No Age Limit on Your Dreams

  

Motivational Power Quote

 

There is No Age Limit on Your Dreams

 

"You don't have to put

an age limit on your dreams."

Dara Torres, American Swimming Olympic Champion 

As I see it. . . . . . . .

There is no age limit on your dreams. 

Dream your dreams and go for it.  

Dara Torres participated in her first Olympics in 1984 at the age of seventeen winning a gold medal. She has participated in a total of five Olympics and has won a total of twelve medals. 

In the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China; Dara at the age of forty-one, won 3 silver medals which is an outstanding accomplishment.

What was amazing about Dara story is just 15 months prior to the 2008 Olympics at age 40 Dara gave birth to her first child. 

Your dreams are there to be fulfilled; there are no age limits on achieving them.   

Dara made a choice to follow her dream; make the choice to follow and fulfill your dreams.

Lou, It woud be a very boring life indeed without dreams and goals; no matter the age.

Inspirational indeed!  Have a great week.

Posted by Bridget Cella, e-Pro, Realtor (Re/Max Connection) about 10 years ago

You are so right.  I just saw a black woman on the news (CNN) who at 75 went to the North Pole because she wanted to be on top of the world!  ... and she was!

Posted by Joan Whitebook, Consumer Focused Real Estate Services (BHG The Masiello Group) about 10 years ago

Great point Lou.  I think a lot of agents fail to recognize we're in the business of helping people to fulfill their dreams.  If more of us approached clients with that in mind Realtors would have a much better name in the world.

Wonderful quote, thank you for sharing! I'd also like to say that my dreams don't have to have expiration dates, either!

My husband and I have been re-reading the Millionaire Real Estate Agent. I forsee some significant changes in my business.

Unfortunately I think too many people give up on their dreams far too early and too easily.  I think that this is one of the biggest mistakes that people can make, not going far enough.

Hi Lou,

So true, I loved seeing Dara at the Olympics, a dinosaur in her sport, yet she excelled!  I love learning from people of all ages, younger and older alike.

BTW, I ran my first marathon at age 50, since then I've done 9 others.

Hi Mark

I agree, we have to work a little harder, a litter longer. When we quit we quit on ourselves.

Ten years later, and Lou's advice is still spot-on. We can live our dreams no matter how old we are.
