Real Impact Minute - Day 12

Jan 12, 2022

Welcome to Real Impact Minute. I'm Mark Simpson, Lead Coach for Real Impact Coaching and today's impact comes from Jackie Joyner-Kersee who said "Age is no barrier, it's a limitation you put on your mind."

A lot of times we can think I'm too young or I'm too old (or whatever that might be) to do what is before me. And one of the things that I learned in leading Marathon Makeover in turning over 4000 couch potatoes into marathoners, is that age was a state of mind.

Yes, we might have more aches and creaks and what have you, the older we get, but I saw 17-year-olds run 26.2 miles and 73-year-olds do the same.

So what was the most important driving force? The mindset of I can do this!

So don't set limits on yourself because of your age - young or old. Go and live powerfully and make your impact!
