Late Bloomers…

Late Bloomer…

If you think that your time is gone to change your attitude, job or profession, then have a look at this rose. It is a late bloomer and yet so beautiful and elegant.

It’s not about ‘when’ that matters, it’s about recognizing and accepting your talents and capabilities at your own pace. It’s about defining yourself who you really are, no matter the circumstances.

There are so many examples of extraordinary and successful late bloomers in the world.

An Indian actor, Paran Bandopadhyay, a retired government job employee started his acting career in television and films at the age of sixty.

Vincent van Gogh, a Dutch painter became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art after his death.

Colonel Harland David Sanders, an American businessman, who began his franchise, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) in his sixties.

Oscar Swahn, a Swedish marksman won Olympic gold medals when he was 60 and 64.

Marjorie Rice, an amateur mathematician who had no formal education in mathematics after high school, began studying tessellations at the age of 51 or 52.

If you ask me about one of my personal favorites among late bloomers then it’s Boman Irani, the man who made his big break in Bollywood at 44 years of age and is known for his versatility and talent.

So, do you still believe that you are too late to improve your skills or to dust off your talents? Have faith in yourself and take a leap.. Let yourself bloom…

Please leave your comments on the post as I would really love to read them.

  1. My mother used to say, if the flower has the fragrance, it can’t be suppressed for long. It is bound to be acknowledged one day or the other. Talents need exposure, perseverance and patience. A very good elaboration!👍
