Never Too Late

Never Too Late

March 17, 2021

One month after graduating college, I was fired from my first secretarial job in Hollywood.

In spite of that, I ended up with a successful 30-year career in television. 

In my mid-50’s, I became a Life Coach… and I have never loved my career more. 

One of the greatest limiting beliefs is telling ourselves that one mistake can ruin everything. 

Or worse, we tell ourselves that we are too old to make a change. It simply isn’t true, and if you are looking for more evidence, here are just a few reminders:

At age 23, Tina Fey was working at a YMCA.

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.

At age 37, Ang Lee was a stay-at-home-dad working odd jobs.

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.

Alan Rickman gave up his graphic design career to pursue acting at age 42.

Samuel L. Jackson didn’t get his first movie role until he was 46.

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

Kathryn Bigelow only reached international success when she made The Hurt Locker at age 57.

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

Never tell yourself you’re too old to make it.

Never tell yourself you missed your chance.

Never tell yourself that you aren’t good enough.

You can do it. Whatever it is that sets your soul on fire.

 Happy Wednesday!

P.S. If you would like help discovering what “sets your soul on fire,” let’s set up a time to chat on a free consultation… because it’s never too late for a change.
