They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, well I disagree, I don’t think it’s ever too late to learn something new.
“Yuichiro Miura became the oldest person to climb Mount Everest in 2013. He first climbed Mount Everest in 2003, at age 70 making him the oldest person to reach the summit of Mount Everest. In 2008 the record was broken. However in 2013, at age 80 he once again climbed Mount Everest making him the oldest person to climb Mount Everest.”

Of course, not everyone can be like Yuichiro Miura but you can still learn something new at any time. Age should never be a barrier.
“Times are changing and it’s time for us to change too, breaking the stigma and encouraging each other to take action and get inspired to learn new skills or tricks of the trade.”
There are many opportunities for older people these days, they can learn new languages, take up photography, even start a blog! There should be no barriers to the things they can do. There are even fitness sessions for the over 50s, or classes for yoga and pilates. The older generation should be encouraged to break those barriers and show what they can do.
Finally remember, it’s never to late to learn something new.
