Believe in your ability to be a valuable contributor throughout your whole life.
The only effect age has on your ability to be a valuable contributor to life is your perspective on it. It is your intention that is the most powerful element. Where there is a will, there is a way.
Although modifications might need to be made in order to allow you to continue to be an active contributor to life in various capacities, it is the choosing to, and believing you can, that is most important.
The easiest way to ensure that you continue to be contributing when your old is to begin contributing earlier in life so that it is in your habit to do so.
That is not to say you can’t start in your 80’s
What do you love? What is your passion? What is important to you? These are great places to start looking for avenues to contribute.
