Late bloomers and meaningful success

While society encourages individuals to have success as early in their life as possible, following pre-established processes that sometimes end up in huge disappointment, people who know success later on in their life are at least as impressive.

Recent research has shown that it is in our 30s, 40s and even 50s that we reach the peak of our curiosity, executive functioning skills and wisdom. Furthermore, with the age we also get rid of the fear to quit, as we understand that experience, good and bad, eventually does lead to success. So go ahead improve yourself at your own pace, without thinking twice about what the world has to say about it, as this is your own life and your happiness depends on it.
