Spanish fountain of youth

Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”
—Sophia Loren
 
My mother is 75 and I recently turned 55.
 
We were reflecting on how 49 and 69 sound so much younger than 55 and 75.
 
But we decided to change our attitude. It’s an imaginary difference and only matters if we let it.
 
The wrong attitude reminds me of how circus elephants are shackled.
 
"When young, circus elephants are attached by heavy chains to large stakes driven deep into the ground. They pull and yank and strain and struggle, but the chain is too strong, the stake too rooted. One day they give up, having learned that they cannot pull free, and from that day forward they can be ‘chained’ with a slender rope. Because it believes it cannot, it cannot."
—Gavin de Becker
 
I like that last line from the quote:
 
"Because it believes it cannot, it cannot."
 
The same goes for age. If you believe you’re too old, then you’re too old.
 
I see it all the time: an imaginary barrier to what is possible. People believe they are too old to speak Spanish.
 
That’s not the case!
 
Traditional methods don’t work for teenagers either.
 
No tiene que ver con la edad (age has nothing to do with it).
 
Most teens study a foreign language in school. Good luck finding a teenager from those classes who can converse in a foreign language now. You’d have a better chance of finding one who doesn’t text while eating lunch.
 
Age is not the barrier – poor teaching methods are the barrier.
 
Traditional language study methods numb the mind.
 
Neither you nor a teenager can learn anything with a numb mind. You need an active, engaged, stimulated mind.
 
When you speak to learn instead of learning to speak, it brings your mind to life.
 
It gets your brain firing and increases your energy.
 
You realize the barriers are imaginary and are capable of so much more than you have been doing in the past.
 
As Sophia Loren said at the start of this email...
 
"When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age."
 
Throw any ideas of age barriers out of your mind now.
