I love stories of people who “made it” later in life.
For instance, did you know that Julia Child didn’t publish her first cookbook until she was 50? Laura Ingalls Wilder didn’t publish her first Little House book (which became the TV show Little House on the Prairie) until she was 65.
Grandma Moses didn’t begin her career as a painter until she was 78. (One of her paintings went for 1.2 MILLION in 2006!). And then there’s Harry Bernstein, who wrote for his whole life but didn’t achieve recognition until his first memoir was published. . . when he was 96!
Of course, I LOVE the fact that these people finally were successful and even exceeded their goals (and also, it means I still have time–lol!!).
But what I love even more is that they are all great examples of someone with a “growth mindset.”
