Throughout our early lives we are repeatedly told that if we want to achieve anything we need to start as soon as possible. This puts an incredible amount of pressure on young adults, most of whom feel they are simply not equipped to achieve greatness so early on in their lives. Tadas Vidmantas’ submission to the Being 50 Saga video competition ‘Nothing Changes’ is an inspiring reminder that these pressures are unfounded: we can achieve whatever we wish to at any age. There is no time limit on your ability to achieve greatness, no deadline for our dreams.
