Everyone’s circumstances are so different, that most external advice ends up as contradictory and cliché mantras : ‘you’re never too old to learn’ but ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’, its ‘better to be safe than sorry’ but ‘nothing ventured, nothing gained’ or my grandparents favourite ‘if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again’… but ‘don’t beat your head against a stone wall’.

With the exception of some mad geniuses like Bill Gates perhaps.
