Can you leverage adulthood and maturity?


Before mixing things up, what’s the difference between adulthood and maturity? By trying to explain this through metaphors, you could say that adulthood is the hardware in life while maturity is the software.

A computer is typical hardware, like age is typical adulthood. A Mac is a Mac, nothing else, and 72 years are 72 years, nothing else. On the software side, you can either use iCloud to store your files or Google, Dropbox, or OneDrive. Your maturity can be focused on experience, knowledge, skills, or a mix of them all.

In a nutshell, the difference between adulthood and maturity is between a stage of life characterized by physical and emotional growth and a state of mind that develops over time through experience, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence.

You can be an immature adult or a mature non-adult, while a mature adult is the most common combination. Thus, your age usually plays a role in your maturity.

“Maturity comes with experience, not age.” – Ziad K. Abdelnour


Forget the Past and Leverage Adulthood and Maturity in the Presence

Leverage Adulthood and MaturityA too-common habit among adults reaching a certain age is to lay back and reflect on what has been done in life so far. It’s like a final summary of life about coming to an end. Statements like, “If I was 30 years younger,” “I’m too old for this,” “It was easier before,” and many more are adapted as valid excuses not to enter into new, challenging adventures.

Telling stories about the past and what you used to do brings you unconsciously into a “dormant mode.” It’s like a premature farewell statement.

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” – C.S.Lewis

Who cares what you did 30 years ago? The approach should be all about what you are doing now. Seize the power of now and what you can do to leverage adulthood and maturity.

Stop living in the past. Look forward and make today your best day ever! In fact, make every day the best day you have ever experienced.


7 Unique Ways for Seniors to Deal with Adulthood and Maturity Successfully

Like your DNA is unique in the universe, each age and generation has unique pros and cons. Our society has been brainwashed from an early age that the peak in life happens somewhere between 30 and 40.

This dogma is entirely based on the theory that your life chain starts with education, continues with a career, and ends with retirement. Perhaps, this formula was valid 50 years ago, before the big boom of automation and digitalization of literally everything.

It’s true that certain disciplines we frame into well-defined age categories. For example, to become a world champion in most athletic categories, your probability of achieving your goal is very low—I would say nil—if you start to train at the age of 50.

On the other hand, starting a business has nothing to do with age, but the base is something completely different. Let Mark Zuckerberg, who started Facebook at the age of 19, and Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, at the age of 62, symbolize the reality that age doesn’t matter when it comes to starting a business.

Before we categorize society based on the activities we choose, let’s appreciate the unique treasure of characteristics that grown-up adults bring. Watch the video and discover more about the 7 unique ways seniors successfully deal with adulthood and maturity.
