Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.
There are many examples of people achieving fame and success late in life. Poet, Walt Whitman, painter, Grandma Moses, Academy award winning actor, F. Murray Abraham, famous cook, Julia Child, and comic book artist, Stan Lee, are all excellent examples of influential people who didn’t fulfill their destiny until late in life.
Regardless of age, these people followed their passions and eventually became some of the most famous people in their field. These were normal people who continued to improve who they were and what they did because they had an interest in something. But just like any other goal, passion takes persistence to become successful. Julia Child’s, Mastering the Art of French Cooking took years to write and get published after she started cooking at 40. Walt Wittman didn’t make enough money to buy a house until he was 63 and had published Leaves of Grass several times.
These people didn’t get lucky, they worked hard and eventually had something to show for it. In the same way, we all can achieve a little or a lot in our lives. We might not get rich and famous by the time we’re 30, but honestly, how often should that happen? Your life has just begun at that point. Most people don’t even know who they are until later in life. Passion takes time to recognize and goals take work to succeed. Follow what you love and stick to it. You never know what kind of influence you’ll have.
