I frequently receive calls from and meet young individuals (aged 18 to 25) who tell me, "I want to start a business, but my parents won't let me."

"I want to pursue my passion, but they say I'm too young."

These excellent ones frequently inquire, "Do you think I'm too young?"

My response to the past two people who asked me that question was, "You are too old."

This is my advice to those under the age of 30.

You see, the day you discover your passion is when you mature into a full-fledged adult (no matter how young you are).

While you respect your parents, your life's passion is larger than anything or anybody, even you and your parents.

At the age of 24, I entered the corporate world full-time. I didn't have the blessings of my wonderful parents.

While I could have easily ignored my father's rage, my mother's concern worried me.

This is the woman I've been looking for my entire life. This is my life's love. This is the most reliable buddy I've ever had. Nonetheless, she was in tears since her son had chosen the difficult route.

What am I supposed to do?

I had to choose between pleasing my parents and following my dreams.

I have the choice between making my father proud of having a son who works at a bank (even if that son is miserable) or making myself proud of following my instincts (even though I will face challenges).

I could have sacrificed my pleasure to make everyone else happy, but I don't remember ever being a "gentle" guy, so it was (and still is) relatively simple for me to harm people.

"I will follow my heart even if it means death!" I assured myself. (And I was truly willing to face any difficulties.)

This is my recommendation to everyone under the age of 30.

You only have one life to live, so live it to the fullest.

Your gut instinct is considerably more reliable and predictable than all of the world's advice.

Your life's work is greater than yours or your family's.

It is preferable to encounter problems in your youth while attempting to follow your passion than to live till the age of 80 while living in the fantasies of others.

Your parents, brothers, and sisters adore you, which is why they don't want you to fail. Unfortunately, you might have to fail before you succeed.

Take a chance!

Your father may forsake you; your mother may weep, and your friends may forsake you. Even though it would be difficult, pursue your passion.

I pursued my entrepreneurial dream, and I must say that when there's a will, there's a way. If someone is dedicated and enthusiastic about doing anything, they will find a method to do it regardless of the hurdles.
