Why It’s Never Too Late To Try New Things


“You can learn new things at any time in your life if you’re willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you.” – Barbara Sher

We often have this conception that certain activities are off-limits to once we reach a defined age. We give ourselves excuses such as “The window of opportunity has passed” or “I’m too old to start doing this”. In reality, there are many benefits of trying new things regardless of your age. Below is a list of reasons why it’s never too late to try new things:

1) Increased confidence

Going out on a limb to try something new takes confidence. Showing yourself that you have what it takes will only make you feel better about yourself. You will surprise yourself and realize the potential you’ve held all along.

2) Appreciation for yourself 

Do you really appreciate yourself for all you do and are capable of doing? Trying a new thing, whether it’s a new look, a new hobby, or a new motto, will help you to appreciate what you’re really made of. Self love is incredibly important.

3) Learning a new skill 

Many times the thing you’ll be interested in trying involves learning a new skill. You may be afraid of failing, but don’t let that stop you. With practice and persistence, you will gain a cool new skill or hobby to add to your repertoire. It’s a good feeling and a greater asset!

4) Helps you break out of a rut 

A great way to break you out of your mundane routine is to do something you’ve never done before, or try something you’ve never tried. Wake your brain up and tell it that you’re not just here to go through the motions. You’re here for a purpose!

5) Helps you to see value around you

Sometimes a little bit of perspective is all we might need to gain a great appreciation and sense of value for the things around us. Things like everyday life, time with our kids, friendship, and interacting with new people all seem completely new and revived when you go out on a limb in another area of your life.
