Omg. No one ever told me"you can do whatever you want". They just told me"you have to get a job". I'd rather hear about people that found success later in life than all these kids that make it at an age I had no idea what I was even doing.

Staying in a field of expertise does not promote success. Challenging ourselves outside of our expertise can often produce unexpected results.

Maybe the individual should at first overthink what success actually means to them personally, instead of following"rules" completely made up by strangers.
