Late Bloomer

Not all of us are quick off the mark and succeed early in life.

Some of us are like slow-boiling pots, who need time to gather wisdom and make sense of the world around us.

But watch out when a later bloomer finally gets it - late bloomers are often the driving forces in the world because they have spent a long time digesting ideas, information and knowledge just to come up with some amazing solutions to the world's problems.

Shut up! Announcing your plans makes you less motivated to accomplish them.

  • Shouldn’t you announce your goals, so friends can support you?

  • Isn’t it good networking to tell people about your upcoming projects?

  • Doesn’t the “law of attraction” mean you should state your intention, and visualize the goal as already yours?


Announcing your plans to others satisfies your self-identity just enough that you’re less motivated to do the hard work needed.
