November 22nd, 2021 | Hitting your prime
I saw a guy from my school on Instagram. He is a footballer and he was the most successful person in our school because he turned pro, had a promising career and was making good money while the rest of us didn't even know who we were and if we wanted to go to university or not. Fast forward to today, he has a job on the side because things didn't work out perfectly after all. Your late twenties (he is 27) is when you start hitting your prime as an athlete. Injuries, bad luck or lack of talent might derail that. It's just too competitive. If you haven't made it yet, you probably never will. Now you have to re-invent yourself. And unfortunately they have sacrificed a lot. Contrast that with professionals or entrepreneurs, where being 27 is still considered a baby. Different people hit their prime at different ages.
