Forty isn’t old!28 Feb 2011 10:06 am

david-seidler_1836578b.jpgI answered career questions during a live chat on TheTodayShow.com last week and I was struck by a few questions submitted by people who called themselves old and were fearful of age bias. What struck me were the readers who considered themselves old at age 40.

That’s why I wanted to share this guy’s story, David Seidler. He won an Oscar last night for best original screenplay, “The King’s Speech,” at the ripe young age of 73, and this after a life of struggles as a stutterer and many years trying to make it in the movie biz.

His reaction:

“My father always said to me I would be a late bloomer.”

Seidler first got to Hollywood at age 40. 40! Read his story here.

I know it’s a cliche that you’re as old as you feel, but in this case it’s a valid saying. And we all have to stop buying the bull that we can never make it in this world if we don’t go under the knife or dress like Lady Gaga. Yes, be hip. But first and foremost, be yourself.
