So I was told the other day that as a 27 year old I haven't got enough life experience to be coaching other people. Although for a few moments it made me think "could this be true", I decided I don't agree and I do not disrespect their opinion but I am grateful for those kind words because it makes me think about the word "experience" and what it means i my life.
We as humans have so many experiences of different events and situations every single day of our lives. Each of those situations and events will teach us something, either about yourself, about another person or about that particular situation; which to me in 27 years is a lot of experiences. Okay it isn't as many experiences as people who have lived twice or three times the amount of time I have but I still had experiences nonetheless.
As humans we all have individual journeys, face different challenges and different struggles; although some situations are very similar, the outcome of that experience will be different for every single person. Furthermore one person's perception and action cannot really be compared unless there is understanding or having walked in that person's shoes.
I believe the problem we have on this earth is that there are so many people in society that will stand forward and tell someone "You can't do this" and "You can't do that".
WHY can't someone do this or that? WHY can't someone go to a 27 year old to learn the tools and techniques to improve their life? WHY can't people learn to focus more on what they are doing right instead of telling others what they should be doing.
I am a big fan of the question WHY? Using this one word has seen me through many of my challenges and struggles. I like to challenge myself and others when they think "I cannot achieve something" . I am a believer that when humans put their mind to something, apply commitment and take action we CAN do a lot of things we once thought that we couldn't.
So my question to you all is WHY stay still. WHY live in fear of your own passion and abilities? when we as humans have already achieved so much.
