You wanna be a lion? You gotta work like a lion. You gotta always be as hungry as a lion. You gotta stop worrying about what anybody else says or thinks about you. Why? Lions don't lose sleep over the opinion of sheep. #DutchLion 🦁
No matter what it is you want to be, realize that you can absolutely be that. It doesn't matter how old you are. It doesn't matter how behind you feel. It doesn't matter who is doing it now! Don't worry about other people's success. You'll always feel behind. Worry about you. Here is a very inspiring list of successful individuals that will prove to you that there is ALWAYS time to make your dreams come true:
