So, they say that great artists usually start out young, but focus and determination, traits well cultivated in our later years, can make miracles happen. Based on the stuff all over the internet, we can master new skills and flourish creatively, all our lives.
Actually, we’re not genetically hardwired with artistic talents, or a lack of them. Turns out that willpower and environmental factors are just as critical, to expressing these gifts. Yes, genes impact our lives, but our lifestyle can also influence our genes, and in very positive ways. Our brains shape themselves by the experiences we have.
The conclusions we can draw are far reaching. In fact, many of us don’t recognize that we have tremendous potential within, that extends well into our golden years. We stagnate, because we assume imaginary limitations and construct barriers in our minds, that just aren’t there.
Do not buy into old, obsolete dogma, it’s just not true!
While we may lose some things as we age, maybe we’re a little softer in the middle, or our hair’s a bit grayer than it used to be, talents expressed in our later years are vibrant proof that we profoundly gain purpose, insight and wisdom.
You have latent talents waiting to be expressed. Here are a few pointers on how to give them life.
You’ll be amazed at your newfound energy as you pursue your passions. It’s like being a kid again!
Brain plasticity is a fascinating field. Hang in there, the best is yet to come!
