Many of us reach 40 and begin buying into the belief that it is all downhill from here. We begin freaking out, realizing our lives are getting shorter and start wondering about the regrets we have. Instead of looking to ramp things up and get the most of the time we have, we start to look at winding things down, believing we are past our prime.
Having just turned 50, I for one was not prepared to accept this to be my reality. I believe there are a lot more things I have the potential to do and certainly don’t want to start slowing down but rather start speeding up. However, in my circle I certainly seemed to be alone and going against the tide, with me continually being told to just accept my age.
Always the contrarian I was determined to proved them wrong and so set out to find others who not only believed that life started at 40, or in my case 50, but were living this reality. Those who refused to accept the story told by their chronological clock.
What I found was inspiring. Countless men and women who were doing the extraordinary and putting those much younger to shame. Legend Life After 40 was born to tell their story. To showcase the inspiring people who prove that in fact life is just getting started when we turn 40, 50, or even beyond.
People who prove that it’s never too late to do anything you want to do with your life. People who exhibit a passion for living, who look to fulfill their potential, and are committed to living life fully each and every day. People who wish to ensure that they live with no regrets.
Legend Life After 40 is here to inspire you. To ensure you never give up on living your best life. To living a legendary life.
Legend Life Evangelist & Storyteller
We are looking to bring together inspiring stories from people around the world who are over 40. Fitness and sports athletes, photographers, adventurers, travellers, changemakers, conservationists, entrepreneurs, and others, who are living their best life. Stories that will inspire and motivate you to start on your own journey to living your best life regardless of what age you may be.
We will be showcasing ordinary people, no different than anyone else, except they are now over 40. People who have chosen to live their passions, to fulfill their potential, and to live the lives they have always dreamed of. People who are creating a legendary life for themselves.
In short interviews you will receive insights into their story, what they are passionate about, their life lessons, their fitness and wellness tips, their strategy for living their best lives, and what living a legendary life means to them.

The motto, we at Legend Life have chosen to adopt as how we choose to live our life is “vive ut vivas”. This can be translated to mean “live that you may live”. It is a motto that instructs us to live our life to the fullest every day. To live our life as if there will be no tomorrow. To look to get the most living we can out of each and every day.
The Legend Life Motto helps us understand that life is short and that we do not control tomorrow or our future. It reinforces that we should live in the present and that we should live each and every day with fullness, with passion, and purpose and as if it were our last.
It reminds us not to take our lives for granted and that we have but a short time to create the legacy by which we will be remembered. To live such that we live on in those we inspired, to also live their best lives.
The Legend Life Motto thus challenges us to treat each day as a miniature version of our life. To live life fully and extraordinarily each and every day. For, in doing so we will have an extraordinary life, a legendary life.
I invite you to also adopt the Legend Life Motto as the guiding principle by which you to live your life so that you to may “live that you may live”.
