Don’t lose heart.
To be young and successful is certainly commendable but it doesn’t mean you’d give up on your dreams just because your age is a factor. It isn’t. As the old adage goes, “Age doesn’t matter.”
You may not succeed at age 20 (heck, most people think of partying and getting wasted at that age, so you are certainly not left behind), but it does not follow that you will not be successful in the latter part of the road.
If you have tried different ways and have not given up, you still have a chance. You may not be aware of it but some successful people the world knows today did not achieve success young either. If they did it, you can, too. What is important is you are going at your goal as if today is the first day of making it happen, with as much enthusiasm and excitement you can muster each and every day.
Read on to draw more inspiration. It is not yet too late. When it comes to your dreams, it never is, as long as you do not give up!
