Hey there, it’s Deepak Shukla, and I’m back with another episode of Deepak’s Daily Reading. Today, I want to dive into a concept that’s been swirling in my mind lately, triggered by my recent read, “The Power of Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy. But before we get into the nitty-gritty of that, it’s July 3rd, 2023, and I thought it’s a perfect day to share some musings with you all.

1. The Wisdom of Gray Hair

“You know, there’s this saying that as your hair turns gray, your wisdom deepens. And I can’t help but resonate with this idea.” 

Age, it seems, brings with it an arsenal of experiences and insights that can be incredibly valuable. It’s fascinating to witness how the perception of aging is shifting in today’s world. 

People are:

  • Starting new careers at 65
  • Learning new languages at 80
  • Rewriting the rules of what’s possible as they grow older

🧓 As for me, well, I’m on the cusp of turning 40, and this month, I’m also gearing up to tie the knot. It’s a time for introspection, a time to assess what I’ve achieved so far and what lies ahead on this exciting journey.

2. Rollercoaster Ride of My Thirties

My twenties were all about finding my footing, understanding the inner workings of my mind, and getting a grip on my emotions. Then came my thirties, a whirlwind decade of growth and learning. It was during this time that I embarked on the entrepreneurial adventure of a lifetime by co-founding Pearl Lemon. 

“It was a rollercoaster ride of epic proportions. I was thrust into a world where I had to navigate the intricacies of running a business.”

3. Entering the Forties: A New Frontier

Now, as I stand at the threshold of my forties, I can’t help but feel a surge of anticipation.🚀 It’s like I’m gearing up for the next big adventure, armed with the knowledge and wisdom I’ve accumulated over the years. My vision for this decade is ambitious – I aim to build a hundred-million-pound company. It’s not just a dream; it’s a goal I’m committed to achieving.

4. Misconceptions About Aging

Now, I’m not blind to the common misconceptions about aging. People often assume that as you get older, you slow down, both mentally and physically. But let me tell you, these are nothing more than misperceptions. June 2023 marked a month where I ran more miles than I had in the past 5 to 10 years, proving age doesn’t have to hold you back; it can propel you forward.

5. Embracing the Journey Ahead

As I step into my forties, I’m carrying with me a wealth of experiences, a hunger for new challenges, and a deep-rooted belief in the power of growth. 🌱 It’s a decade where I plan to push boundaries, break molds, and redefine what’s achievable.

“Let’s shatter the misconceptions, rewrite the rules, and prove that the gray of our hair truly signifies the betterment of our abilities.”


🌅 As we wrap up today’s reflection, let’s revisit and embrace the powerful narrative of age being a beacon of wisdom, experience, and unmatched strength. Stepping into my forties, I’m not just celebrating a birthday; I’m heralding a phase brimming with potential, adventure, and the promise of unprecedented growth.

With the wisdom symbolized by every strand of gray hair, let’s collectively challenge misconceptions, champion continuous learning, and relentlessly pursue our most audacious dreams. Remember, each year is not just an addition but a multiplication of insights, resilience, and capabilities.

So here’s to aging — not just gracefully, but purposefully and powerfully. Let’s continue to defy expectations, push boundaries, and embark on journeys we never thought possible, demonstrating that indeed, with age comes an irreplaceable wealth of wisdom and experience. Until our next episode, keep learning, stay inspired, and never stop growing.

As I continue my daily readings and exploration of the boundless world of knowledge, I look forward to sharing more insights, discoveries, and reflections with you. Until next time, stay curious and keep chasing your dreams, no matter where you are on your journey. 🌟

Key Takeaways:

  1. Age as an Asset: I firmly believe that as we age, we should view it as an asset rather than a hindrance. With every passing year, we accumulate experiences and wisdom that can significantly enhance our abilities and potential for success.
  2. Exploring New Horizons: It’s crucial to challenge the conventional notions of aging. People are embarking on new careers at 65 or 70, and some are even learning new languages at 80. This highlights the infinite possibilities life offers, regardless of our age.
  3. Reflecting on Life Stages: I’ve taken the time to reflect on the different stages of my life. My twenties were a period of self-discovery and personal growth, while my thirties were dedicated to the uphill journey of building my first business, Pearl Lemon. These reflections underscore the evolution of my life’s journey.
  4. Entrepreneurial Learning Curve: My thirties were marked by a steep learning curve in entrepreneurship. I had to master various aspects of running a business, from financial management to marketing and client relations. These experiences have been instrumental in shaping my entrepreneurial skills.
  5. Forties: A Time for Ambitious Goals: As I enter my forties, I’ve set an audacious goal for myself – to build a hundred-million-pound company. This goal signifies my unwavering commitment to growth and my readiness to embrace new challenges on this entrepreneurial journey.
  6. Challenging Aging Stereotypes: I’ve taken it upon myself to challenge stereotypes associated with aging, particularly the notion that mental and physical abilities inevitably decline. My personal achievements, such as running more miles in June 2023 than in the past decade, exemplify the potential for continued growth at any age.
  7. A Lifelong Pursuit of Knowledge: My dedication to daily reading and the pursuit of knowledge underscores the profound importance of lifelong learning. I firmly believe that regardless of age, the thirst for knowledge and the commitment to self-improvement are potent drivers of personal and professional growth.
  8. Embrace the Journey: I encourage individuals, especially those approaching significant life milestones, to wholeheartedly embrace their unique life journeys. Age should be celebrated as a symbol of accumulated wisdom and experience, propelling us toward further growth and achievement.

In conclusion, my reflections emphasize that age should never limit our pursuit of personal and professional growth. With each passing year, we have the opportunity to harness our experiences, cultivate resilience, and foster a mindset of continuous learning. Age is not a barrier but a catalyst for evolution and success.
