Don’t ever give up on your dreams!
It is never too late to be successful, whether it’s material or financial success. Follow your dreams. You can still achieve what matters to you in life. You can reach your goals. Age doesn’t count; you can do it.
One of the biggest excuses people come up with when asked why they didn’t start the business they always wanted is, “I’m too old now!”
You should not compare what you have accomplished at your age to anyone else at the same age. Comparison kills confidence, hope, and happiness. Go at your own pace. There is no certainty that early success leads to lasting success.
Why is everyone obsessed with making an early success?
Don’t even compare yourself to your parents. They may have married young, own a house, have children at an early age, and earn a fantastic salary. That is one of the types of comparison that can keep you trapped. Probably even in a job that you hate too busy chasing money and losing happiness and a sense of fulfillment, hoping that a miracle happens to combine the two.
The business world isn’t exempt either. There are some early success stories and some were happy with what they achieved. Yet, there is also a significant amount of people who achieved success early and became disillusioned. They also found out that lasting success isn’t about fame, money, and material possessions.
Most people, even famous people, go on slow and steady career paths. You have to do the time and pay your dues to reach your goals. It is highly unlikely to be a success overnight; this is real life, not a fairy tale.
Who says you have to do one thing and stick to it?
It is never too late to be happy, feed your soul, do what makes you happy. Don’t give in to the feelings of hopelessness. History has shown us that talented people are capable of having amazing success.
