I just read a very interesting post on a fellow blogger’s site.
While the content of his site is not generally my preferred reading material, I loved the post \”Now is Your Time!\”
Short exerpt below:
Mother Teresa was forty years old when she founded the Missionaries of Charity.
Jack Nicklaus was forty-six years old when he shot 65 in the final round, and 30 on the back nine, to win the Masters.
Henry Ford was fifty years old when he started his first manufacturing assembly line.
Ray Kroc was a fifty-two-year-old milkshake machine salesman when he bought out Mac and Dick McDonald and officially started McDonald’s.
Pablo Picasso was fifty-five years old when he painted “Guernica”.
Dom Pe`rignon was sixty years old when he first produced champagne.
Oscar Hammerstein II was sixty-four years old when he wrote the lyrics for The Sound of Music.
Winston Churchill was sixty-five years old when he became Britain’s prime minister.
Truly inspiring. There were more examples of accomplishment before and after these, but I found these particularly moving, perhaps because of the age bracket. Great ccomplishments may be achieved at any age.
