When it Comes to Your Career or Calling: It’s Never Too Late

More proof that you should never give up on your dreams....

Just in case you ever wonder (as I sometimes do) that your best work is behind you, here’s an encouraging message from The New England Journal of Medicine:

An extensive study in the U.S.A found that the most productive age in human life is between 60-70 years of age.

The second most productive stage of the human being is from 70 to 80 years of age.
The third most productive stage is from 50 to 60 years of age.

The average age of NOBEL PRIZE winners is 62 years old.
The average age of the presidents of prominent companies in the world is 63 years.
The average age of the pastors of the 100 largest churches in the U.S.A. is 71.
The average age of Popes is 76 years.

This tells us in a way that it has been determined, that the best years of your life are between 60 and 80 years.

The study published in New England Journal of Medicine found that at age 60, you reach the TOP of your potential and this continues into your 80s.

Therefore, if you are between 60 -70 or 70-80 you are in the BEST and/or second best level of your life.
