Are you letting age define your goals and expectations from life?
This may sound cliched, but the truth is that we all have just ONE life and we need to do our best to make this worthwhile. Don’t let factors such as age, status etc stop you from becoming a better version of yourself.
In this post, Vishwas Mudagal shares his experience of how he realized the power of seizing the moment and how age is just a number.
My first Tesla ride turned out to be one of the best rides of my life!
Not because it was a Tesla, but because of the chauffeur.
I got down at Hong Kong airport and my hotel sent me a Tesla with a young driver.
He was extremely courteous. He helped pick up our luggage and placed it in the trunk.
He asked us about our journey, experience at airport & instantly struck a rapport. On the way to the hotel, he explained us how the car works & performs. We spoke at length about HK, places to visit, etc.
I was amazed at his enthusiasm & knowledge. While we got talking, he mentioned that he has a young son! We were so surprised because he looked so young.
‘So, what do you think my age is?’ he asked me, smiling. ’25? 28?’
He laughed out. ‘My son is 25 years old!’ We could not believe him! No one could have guessed that. ‘I am over 50!’ he added. ‘How is that even possible?’ I asked. He smiled & in his heavy Chinese accent said, ‘What is age? It’s just a number right?’
That day, I realized age has nothing to do with how we live our lives. Most people think they are either old or getting old, most of their lives. This is an injustice to our very existence.
We ought to live like we are 25 through out our lives, with the same zeal and wonder in our eyes!
