If you ever think you are too old to set some exciting goals for yourself this may inspire you.
Faujah Sing: Marathon Man
In February 2013, Faujah Sing became the oldest person to run a marathon at age 101. Astonishingly, Sing only came to racing at age 89 after losing his wife and son but has since completed eight competitive races.
Min Bahadur Sherchan: Peace Maker
Min Bahadur Sherchan is the oldest person to reach the world’s highest peak, climbing Mt. Everest at the age of 76. Sherchan scaled the 29,035-foot (8,850-meter) mountain in May 2008 and at age 81, still holds the Guinness World Record for his accomplishment. Says Sherchan, “My main objective for climbing Everest was for world peace. I was determined to either climb the peak or die trying.”
Jiro Ono: Top Chef
Jiro Ono holds the Guinness World Record for oldest living chef. Many tout Ono, age 87, as the greatest sushi chef ever, and patrons clamber for seats at his Michelin three-star Tokyo restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro where he still works. The documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” chronicles his life and work.
You are never too old or too young to do something remarkable with your life.
What big exciting and audacious goal would you set for yourself if you knew you couldn’t fail?
