It does not matter what age you start, it only matters that you started. It does not matter what you came from, only what you choose to leave behind. Everyone has their own ideas about what is important to them and what makes them who they are. You cannot base your own success off of the success you see from others because one day you will have your own success story. Find who you are, and help others find who they are. Never automatically say no to something, give each opportunity a moment and think about how it would affect you. It is okay to be scared, but like John Wayne says saddle up anyway.
