It would seem that most people think that they are either too young or too old to become wealthy. The young do not think that anybody will take them seriously. On the other hand, the old think that their time has come and gone.

My experience tells me that neither is the truth. You are never too young to make money nor are you ever too old.

Stories abound of young people who have made lots of money through investing in concepts like real estate and on the internet through various marketing techniques.

Likewise, many older people have made considerable fortunes later in life. Take, for example, Harland Sanders, the inventor of the recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken. At age 65 he began franchising his idea on the back of a $105 social security payment. Upon his death at age 90 he was a multi-millionaire.

To say that you are too young or too old to become wealthy is just plain ignorant. The proof is there. Others have done it. If you have average intelligence and a heartbeat then you can become wealthy too.

To believe that you are too young or too old to become wealthy is sad. If you believe such a thing then, unfortunately, for you, it will be true.

As Henry Ford said: “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”

But if you are unsure and in the back of your mind you believe that if others have done it then you can too, then you have an opportunity.

Age never really comes into the equation unless, of course, the person makes it their own private issue.

You are never too young or too old to become successful at something and, as a consequence, become wealthy. The ONLY thing that can hold you back is your mindset.
