The media likes to glorify young successes.
Teenagers and twenty-somethings selling their startups to a large company and making a lot of money at a young age…

If you’re young, it feels like you’re supposed to have everything figured out already. “Look at all the people my age doing so well!”
If you’re older, it feels like it’s too late. “Look at all the people so much younger than me doing better.”
