 Most believe that if you do not become a big rockstar or a business tycoon by the age of thirty then you have missed your chance to shine and succeed.

However, what most people do not understand is that success is not bound by age or time. It can come at any point of your life. You may suddenly get a million dollar business idea or end up writing the next “Stairway to Heaven.”
