Famous Men Who Were Not Successful In Their Twenties

Famous Men Who Were Not Successful In Their Twenties

One of the biggest misconceptions among men in their twenties is the belief that they have to achieve great success in order to become famous, after which people will always recognize them.

This is a misconception because in those years big successes are possible only with handful of people.

While most begin to “take a bite” for their big career steps.

Success does not depend on the years in which you are currently in existence.

And proof of this is the large number of well-known men who in their twenties were real “losers” and later succeeded in their careers.

Vincent Van Gogh

Although Van Gogh is one of the best artists of all time, his creative period began late in life.

Until his 28th year, he did not take a brush in his hand, and even in his thirties, Van Gogh began to create numerous works that he is known today for which he is famous for.

Sylvester Stallone

What exactly do we know about Stallone?
Do you suppose he was always famous and successful?
Sadly, you will be mistaken, if you think that.

In his twenties, Sylvester Stallone was engaged in filing low-budget porn movies in order to earn a rent and food.

At the beginning of his thirties he locked himself in his house and wrote the story of one of the most famous boxers of today.

Leonard Cohen

One of the best-known writers, Leonard Cohen, was not always popular.

Leonard, in his youth, created works that were not so successful.

But later in his thirties, he began to write poetry, which became a trademark for his state – Canada.

Stan Lee

The man who is the creator of some of the most iconic comic heroes like Ironman, Spiderman, Fantastic Four and others, did not create them in his “young” days.

Stan Lee became popular when he was 43 years of age, creating characters for which the whole world knows them today.

Alan Rickman

Few people know what Alan Rickman looked like in his young years. The films from that period can not even be found.

Rickman won his first role at age 42, starring as the German antagonist Hans Gruber in “Die Hard”.

Colonel Sanders

Have you ever heard of this man? Colonel Sanders worked as a waiter in restaurants, until the beginning of his 40 years.

But by serving his widely known chicken, he made his own brand worldwide known as KFC.
