It’s true that with age comes wisdom, however, that does not mean that someone younger can’t accomplish great things. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re too young or too old to become successful, for with hard work, optimism, unity, laughter, hope, and faith in God, you can experience success! You can do anything if you put your mind to it! Here’s a poem that I hope you’ll enjoy regarding the topic of age:


Age is but a number.
It is not an obstacle or barrier;
But it is something which,
Should not really matter.
For the world belongs to anybody who will,
Recognize that now is the time and,
Here is the place to show how you feel.
So regardless of your age,
The world can be yours if,
You take action in every stage
