Many people believe that if kids don’t bloom early, they’re not going to bloom at all. However, neuroscience and psychology say the opposite, claiming that there are many decades in our lives where our true capabilities are yet to unfold. Rich Karlgaard – author, publisher, and futurist at Forbes Media – says that we put so much pressure as a society on kids, teenagers, and young adults to achieve early and big that if you’re not competitive enough, you may not succeed later in life. His book, Late Bloomers: The Power of Patience in a World Obsessed with Early Achievement, explores being a late bloomer dominated in a society with high SAT scores and early success. Challenge what many believe as you learn how late bloomers can make it their edge to succeed and find happiness in life.
