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! 😉
