Those who trundle along life’s highway blaming age, environment or circumstance for their failure to get ahead are alibi merchantsattempting to cover up their insecurity, indifference, laziness and lack of iniative.
I have yet to meet a lazy man who is a success or a successful man who is an alibi merchant.
Success is earned so as Failure. It takes the same degree of mental effort to reach either state. You cannot change your age but you can create your own circumstance and environment by the way you think, feel and act. You can succeed early in life or late in life , all that is required is the desire to succeed and the belief that you will succeed regardless of present age, environment or circumstance.
