Reminder Time: Never too young, never too old

*At age 23, Oprah was fired from her first reporting job

*At age 24, Stephen King was working as a janitor and living in a trailer

*At age 27, Vincent Van Gogh failed as a missionary and decided to go to art school

*At age 28, J.K. Rowling was a suicidal single parent living on welfare

*At age 30, Harrison Ford was a carpenter

*At age 30, Martha Stewart was a stockbroker

*Julia Child released her first cookbook at age 39 and got her own cooking show at age 51

*Vera Wang failed to make the Olympic figure skating team, didn’t get the Editor-in-Chief position at Vogue, and designed her first dress at age 40

*Stan Lee didn’t release his first big comic book until he was 40

*Morgan Freeman landed his first MAJOR movie role at age 52

*Grandma Moses didn’t begin her painting career until age 76

Whatever your dream is, it is not too late to achieve it. You aren’t a failure because you haven’t found fame and fortune by the age of 21, 30, 40 or 50

*Tell yourself you’re never too old for change and to make it

*Tell yourself you never missed your chance

*Tell yourself that you are good enough

You can do it. The hardest part is taking the 1st step.

2021, let's kick ass! 😉
