I was tuning in to one of my favorite podcasts – "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me." They had an interview with Brian May, the legendary guitar player from Queen. He shared that back in 1971 when he joined the band, he made the tough call to leave school, where he was studying to become an astrophysicist. Fast forward, Queen became super successful, and Brian May wrote a bunch of their huge hits while still performing with them.

Then, a mind-blowing twist: in 2007, 35 years later, he went back to school and aced his doctorate – yup, in astrophysics. This story is a mic drop on the idea that it's never too late to chase your dreams.

No matter what you've been up to, how successful you've been elsewhere, or how many years have passed, here's the truth: if you're passionate about something, just go for it. No more second-guessing. You've got the green light.
