The Successful Mind Podcast - Full Throttle Thursday - Age is Just a Number

The Successful Mind Podcast – Episode 510 – Full Throttle Thursday – Age is Just a Number

Today BT and I are having a fascinating discussion on getting older without necessarily getting “old.”

Lester Wright ran 100 meters in 26 seconds the day after his 100th birthday.

Rick Clunn is considered one of the best of the best tournament fishermen in the world, at 76.

Harriet Thompson set a record for the oldest woman to run a marathon at 92.

All three of these individuals prove that life doesn’t stop at a certain age or number. Society’s narrative about age and usefulness does a disservice to the older generations. It’s also a detriment to younger folks who are programmed to think life stops at “retirement.”

In today’s episode, you’ll learn:


    • How a positive outlook builds a world-class mindset as you age
    • What we speak, we speak into existence
    • People retire from jobs, but they’ll do what they love until they die
    • When people retire and don’t have a purpose, they tend to age quickly
    • How athletes continue to play even while getting older instead of “aging out”—and many of them take better care of their bodies with newer technology
    • Retirement without purpose or passion is just existing and doesn’t help anyone
    • What it takes to keep your youthful spirit by being passionate about what you do

The idea that we need to act a certain way when we hit a certain age is ridiculous. People leave their jobs to start their businesses at 70 or 80 years old. It’s the difference between existing and living.
