37. Never Too Late

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”

 … George Eliot

Never Too Late by Lyn C:

It’s never too late to write your success story

Many people think that its not the right time to start or they’re already too old to succeed.

Let’s consider some facts:

   At age 23, Oprah had just been fired from her first broadcasting job.

   At age 30, Jonah Peretti was teaching middle schoolers before founding his billion-dollar media companies, Buzzfeed and The Huffington Post.

   At age 40, Stan Lee finally achieved success with Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and X-Men comics.

   At age 50, Julia Child wrote her first cookbook.

   At age 62, Kernel Sanders’ fried chicken business KFC finally succeeded.

   At age 77, Nelson Mandela became South Africa’s president after spending 27 years in jail.

If we can learn anything from these people who succeed later in life, it’s this: Success has no deadline.

In fact, according to the Forbes Top 100 list, on average, the people who found the world’s biggest companies don’t start until age 35.

Out of 539 founders, the average age of starting their company was 40. Many of the world’s most successful people don’t even start pursuing their dreams until their 50s or 60s.

Success doesn’t mean by a certain age, at a certain time, or by a certain deadline.

It isn’t about any other person’s measures or metrics except your own. 

Learning:

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can…
