#Thursday Thought – It’s Never Too Late
A question from Quora last week asked:
I answered the following:
It’s never too late…
Here’s a quick list of famous people who didn’t get a break until they were your age or later :
Samuel L Jackson’s first big break was at age 43 believe it or not
Stan Lee did not write his first comic book until age 39
Julia Child’s first cookbook was at age 50
Rodney Dangerfield not get a TV appearance for his stand up comedy until the age of 46
Vera Wang started a second career as a famous fashion designer at the age of 40
Ray Kroc didn’t start the McDonald’s franchise growth until age 52
Colonel Sanders dripped all across the country in his 60’s until someone flooded him the money to start KFC at age 62
It’s never too late. Stay optimistic and keep hustling and grinding until your break break finally comes.
Remember, it’s today that dictates the rest of your life. Not yesterday.
