You can’t teach an old dog new tricks

Somewhere along the line many of us start to believe we’re “too old”, “not smart enough” or “not very good” at something. This is just a story we tell ourselves. The question we really need to ask is “is it possible?”

Is it possible to learn a new language?

Is it possible to learn to play a musical instrument?

Is it possible to move industries or branch off on a new career path?

Is it possible to learn something new?

Is it possible to become highly knowledgeable about a new topic with enough time, commitment and an appropriate strategy?

The answer to all of the above is yes.

Don’t let the story you tell yourself detract from your capabilities.

You’re not “set” the day you leave school. You learn things every single day.

Be your own biggest supporter – not your own greatest critic.
