This excerpt touches upon an experience that is very real to some. And we thought we’d share the thoughts of famed author, Joseph Murphy, taken out of a few of his publications:
Don’t ever quit a job and say, “I am retired; I am old; I am finished.” That would be stagnation, death, and you would be finished. Some men are old at 30, while others are young at 80. The mind is the master weaver, the architect, the designer, and the sculptor. George Bernard Shaw was active at 90, and the artistic quality of his mind had not relaxed from active duty.
I meet men and women who tell me that some employers almost slam the door in their faces when they say they are over 40. This attitude on the part of the employers is to be considered cold, callous, evil, and completely void of compassion and understanding.
The total emphasis seems to be on youth, i.e., you must be under 35 years of age to receive consideration. The reasoning behind this is certainly very shallow. If the employer would stop and think, he would realize that the man or woman was not selling his age or gray hair, rather, he was willing to give his talents, his experience, and his wisdom gathered through the years of experience in the market place of life.
Age is an asset.
