The power of the human mind is often underrated.
Many of us conform to believe we only have a set talent potential. One that only allows us to perform in certain scenarios or complete specific tasks. However, as technological innovations continue to evolve, we are finding more and more that the in-ability that many preach they have to learn new skills is not true at all.
It is rather a question of will.
I’ll never say anything is possible as there are always some limits. Yet, most things are possible if you have the will and mindset to put in the work. Sadly, this is where most of us fall down. When hard work is involved, 90% of society will switch off.
You can most certainly change your career at any age, learn to play an instrument or achieve whatever aim your mind desires as long as you have the will. I have always looked at people for their potential and attitude rather than just what they can do now.
The will to do great things and not just everyday directed things is what sets our society apart. Never worry about having to learn new skills or be the newbie again in any walk of life. If you have the will, you’ll always find the skills
