“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door”

– Milton Berle (American comedian and actor)
In almost every profession, because of age or the way you look or the fact that you have not had an extraordinary performance graph, opportunities for you to grow after a certain point, cease to exist. Some find themselves in stagnant waters or even unemployable. It is never too late to get yourself a new skill set and create work for yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you that your idea won’t work, or you can’t do something that you inherently feel you were born to do. There’s no age for learning and no deadline for achieving your goals.
Write your own destiny.
