    I think it takes an active participation in one's life...establishing a work plan and making the goals achievable

    Like sadeyes just said. I don't think there is a specific time that "it happens," it is more in tuned with where things fall in your wellness plan and life goals. I will say that as far as successes, things do get better as you grow older if you have a good plan in place and are following a roadmap. You acquire more, you know more, you have learned from mistakes, and you are usually more seasoned in making decisions by the time you have aged. The old saying, "I wish I had known what I know now when I was younger!"

    24 is still pretty young. One of my boys is 24, in fact. He's still finding himself. He has time - I don't push him.

    If you keep comparing yourself, it won't get better with age. No matter where you are in life, there's always going to be someone "ahead" of you. If you're an engineer, you look at the guy who's the CEO and you feel small. If you're an actress, someone gets into a movie while you're in a commercial and you feel small and that your life sucks.

    But just like there's always people who you think are ahead of you, there are also probably people who look at you and think you're ahead of them. So really it's just perspective.
