Over the past week I've found myself asking why I've left creating this business so late. Why have I left it so that we hit a pandemic and all the challenges that has thrown up? Why have I left it so that I've got around just fifteen more useful working years (if I'm spared) to create the business I want? Why have I left it to a time when my energy bank is noticeably depleted at the end of each day?It would have been so much easier if I'd done this in my 40's (I'm now 58) when I had more energy and, frankly, more time.Maybe because my mind is in this thought process that I've noticed a lot of people having similar thoughts on social media, expressing regret at wasted years, of inaction in the past and of not making use of every single day to the max.In short, I've had a bit of a pity party this week.I've spent a fair while considering this during the past few evenings and I wonder how many of you feel the same. Have you left new relationships late? Have you healed rifts that could have been sorted out years ago if you'd put your mind to it? Have you started learning new skills that you love and should have embraced before now? All of it can lead to thoughts of doubt, of having "left it too late".But here's the thing.Maybe we're late for a reason. In my case, I wouldn't have thought of this business before because I hadn't had the midlife challenges which led me to writing my book, which led me to starting TOYL. My time would have been split between this business and my children so perhaps I wouldn't actually have had any more time than I do now (when I slump, face forward onto my desk at close of play every night). Maybe it's all about timing.So, my advice to you if you ever think "I've left it too late" is that you haven't. Maybe you weren't open to the opportunity that now presents itself. Maybe the planets weren't in alignment for you before today. Maybe, just maybe there's truth in "the best is left until last".What I want you to do is to take every opportunity that comes your way and enjoy whatever you can of it now. For me, yes, you could say I've left it late or you could say that the majority of entrepreneurs who are successful in this world started their businesses after the age of fifty.Next week's mind set is a glass half full - it's never too late.
