”You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

Good morning peeps, meditation done.

Quote for the day:

”You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

You don’t have to start early to become the richest man in the world. Takichiro Mori was an economics professor until he left academia at age 55 to become a real estate investor in 1959. Mori had recently inherited a couple of buildings from his father, and he jumped headfirst into Tokyo’s real estate scene. Mori started his second career by investing in the Minato ward where he spent his childhood, and within a matter of years he was presiding over Japan’s real estate boom.

When Mori died in 1993, he was Forbes’ two-time reigning world’s richest man with a net worth of around $13 billion.

Anna Mary Robertson Moses is one of the biggest names in American folk art, and she didn’t even pick up a brush until she was well into her eighth decade. Grandma Moses was originally a big fan of embroidery, but once her arthritis grew too painful for her to hold a needle, she decided to give painting a try in the mid-1930s. She was 76 when she cranked out her first canvas, and she lived another 25 years as a painter — long enough to see the canvases she had sold for $3 fetch prices north of $10,000.

Ray Kroc spent his career as a milkshake device salesman before buying McDonald’s at age 52 in 1954. He grew it into the world’s biggest fast-food franchise.

Harland Sanders, better known as Colonel Sanders, was 62 when he franchised Kentucky Fried Chicken in 1952, which he would sell for $2 million 12 years later.

Laura Ingalls Wilder spent her later years writing semi-autobiographical stories using her educated daughter Rose as an editor. She published the first in the “Little House” books at age 65 in 1932. They soon became children’s literary classics, and the basis for TV show “Little House on the Prairie.”

Charles Darwin spent most of his life as a naturalist who kept to himself, but at age 50 his “On the Origin of Species” changed the scientific community forever in 1859.

When you’re 52, newly divorced, broke and depressed, you’d think that the last thing on your mind would be starting a company? Then again, it might be just what the Doctor ordered?

After getting a dog at her therapist’s recommendation, Carol Gardner won a local Christmas card contest with a picture of the dog and a funny quip. The win inspired Gardner to start a greeting card company, which she named after her dog, Zelda. In 2010, Zelda Wisdom was valued at roughly $50 million,

So don’t count yourself out, no matter what your age. Success can come to anyone at any time.
