Success happens at all ages whether it is a continued success or newly found success. Samuel Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Susan Boyle, Peter Dinklage, Stan Lee, Betty White, Martha Stewart, Ronald Reagan, Henry Ford, Abraham Lincoln, Julia Child, “Colonel” Harland Sanders, are all great examples of success after 40.
“So, what exactly does it mean to be a late bloomer? Simply put, a late bloomer is a person who fulfills their potential later than expected; they often have talents that aren't visible to others initially... And they fulfill their potential frequently in novel and unexpected ways, surprising even those closest to them. They are not attempting to satisfy, with gritted teeth, the expectations of their parents or society, a false path that leads to burnout and brittleness, or even to depression and illness... Late bloomers are those who find their supreme destiny on their own schedule, in their own way.” – Rich Karlgaard
