Motivation Monday: It's never too late to go after your dreams

It's Monday afternoon and it's time for your motivation.  Most people have something in their lives they wish they would have gone after.  A lot of times it seems like the moment has passed, it's too late or it's going to be too difficult.  If it's something that you want, you should strive for it.  It doesn't matter how old you are or how many days, months or years have gone by.  Today always presents a new opportunity to start living the life you've always wanted.

This woman, a 55 year old grandmother of two decided to do just that.  Sharon Simmons decided to audition for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.  She originally wanted to try out of for the team when she was 22, however many factors lead to her not actually doing it.  Sharon Simmons is in killer shape (motivation in itself) and wasn't going to let age stop her from trying out for the team.

I thought this was motivating for people of all ages.  No matter what the outcome may be, always believe that it's never too late to accomplish your goals.

Have a fun and fit day, Chicago.
