You are never too old to learn.

You are never too old to learn.

James Henry is 98 years old and he has only been reading for 7 years!

A lifelong fisherman from Mystic Connecticut, Mr. Henry said “life kind of got in the way of learning how to read”.

Then with the help of his family and a retired school teacher, he not only learned to read but he wrote a book called “A Fisherman’s Language”.  One can only be inspired by the accomplishment, as well as the struggles, he must have faced not being able to read nearly his entire life.

We all need to take a lesson from Mr. Henry and not put off that one thing you have always wanted to do – it can be done no matter how old you are or how big a challenge it may seem.  Learn to knit, ski, navigate by the stars, master sign language, walk on your hands – anything is possible.

Get started today!

Oh yes, and please buy a copy of Mr. Henry’s book with this link to his website!
