Embrace Your Journey: Success Knows No Age Limit


Hey there, fellow goal smashers! Audrey Lawrence here, and today I want to dive into a topic that's both inspiring and liberating—self-inflicted agesium. It's time to debunk the myth that success has an expiration date. Spoiler alert: it doesn't! So, let's rev up our enthusiasm and get ready to redefine what it means to be a super achiever!

Picture this: a recent study from MIT discovered something incredible—success often peaks later in life, even for those embarking on new adventures. Now, you might be wondering, how can this be possible? Well, my friends, let me share a little secret backed by brain science.

As we journey through life, our brains are continuously evolving through a process called neuroplasticity. Fancy term, right? But here's what it means: our brains have the remarkable ability to adapt and reorganize themselves, no matter our age. So, the idea that we can't learn new things or achieve greatness later in life is simply not true. Our brains are like finely tuned engines, constantly improving and growing, fueled by our experiences and accumulated wisdom.

Let's talk "crystallized intelligence." Think of it as the treasure trove of knowledge, expertise, and problem-solving abilities that we gather as we navigate life's twists and turns. It's like building an extensive library in our minds, equipped with all the tools we need to conquer new challenges. With every experience, we add to this library, enriching our abilities and potential for success.

But that's not all! Our prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for decision-making and executive functions, becomes more efficient with age. This enhanced cognitive control allows us to stay focused on our goals and prioritize what truly matters. So, the next time you worry about aging impacting your success, remember that your brain is leveling up and ready to tackle anything!


Now, let's draw some inspiration from incredible late bloomers who reached their peaks at various ages. Ever heard of Vera Wang? She didn't join the fashion industry until her 40s! Sam Walton founded Walmart at the age of 44. And guess what? J.K. Rowling published her first Harry Potter book when she was 32! These stories remind us that age is just a number, and success doesn't care about our birth year.

Oh, and I can't contain my excitement! My TEDx talk, "How to Be a Super Achiever," is an explosion of insights and strategies to unleash your full potential and soar to new heights. Head over to TEDx and search for "How to Be a Super Achiever" by yours truly.


Before I sign off, I want to remind you of something essential—success is not solely about career or financial achievements. It can be found in personal growth, creativity, nurturing relationships, and making a positive impact on the world. Embrace your journey and let it lead you to your version of success. Remember, there's no one-size-fits-all definition!

So, let's celebrate our seasoned selves and toast to the exciting possibilities that lie ahead. Age is not a barrier; it's a canvas to paint our dreams on. Keep smashing those goals, friends, and don't forget to join the Goal Smasher Nation, read the book, subscribe to the newsletter, and dive into inspiring podcast episodes.
