Many of us arrive at a certain age and feel that we haven’t achieved our full potential. We might be stuck in a rut, perhaps in a career that leaves us feeling dissatisfied, or wanting something and wondering if we’ve missed the boat. Sometimes all it takes, however, is seeing someone else who’s been there and found a way to move forward.

There are many people out there who’ve achieved great success and recognition later in life, in many different areas and fields. So we’ve selected 10 familiar faces — including writers, singers, artists and businessmen — to show that it’s never too late to embrace your true passion; you just need a sense of adventure and a little confidence. After all, God has made each of us for a purpose and we sometimes just need a little inspiration to help us embrace it.
