In life, the best thing to do is what you love, especially when it comes down to the business that you’re in. Sadly, not everyone in our world finds themselves working in a profession that they are inherently passionate about. The reasons why are dependent on several factors, but the main one is that many think that it would be too risky to break free from their regular routine and into a profession of creativity that inspires them.

At the end of the day, we all need to work to make a living and support ourselves, so why not do so by doing what you love?
- Achieving Your Dreams By Doing What You Love
Many American adults may be under the false impression that it’s simply too late for them to change their lives around by doing the things that they’ve always wanted to accomplish. But not true! Don’t let that excuse define your goals and ambitions. As an example, let’s take a look at some famous American men and women who rose to fame and prominence in their careers after the age of 30:
- Steve Carell was 37 years old when he got his big break as a TV actor for The Daily Show back in 1999.
- Jane Lynch was 36 when she decided to break into the acting world. However, she didn’t get a major recognizing role until she joined the cast of Glee at 46.
- Spider-Man creator Stan Lee was 39 when he wrote his first comic in 1961.
- Danny Trejo turned his life around and became a renowned and lovable character actor at age 41.
- Bryan Cranston was 44 when he received his first big role in Malcolm in the Middle after years of only doing single show appearances.
- Vera Wang was 45 when her clothes started receiving international attention during the 1994 Olympics.
- Scotland-native Susan Boyle was 47 when she appeared on Britain’s Got Talent and shared her wonderful hidden voice with the world.
- Morgan Freeman was an air force pilot before he turned to acting. He was 50 when he finally received his big break on Street Smart.
- Ray Kroc was 52 when he bought and franchised McDonald’s to a commercially successful fast-food chain all over the country.
As you can see, there are so many examples of people achieving their dreams later in life. So, what’s stopping you from pursuing what you feel you were called to do?
