People Write Notes To Those Who Doubted Them Because Of Age, Proving Age Is Just A Number

"To the boss who said I was too young to be promoted ... "

They say age is just a number, so why do people question our abilities, our strengths, and our potential based on how old or young we are?

Continuing our series of personal notes directed at those who doubted us, we asked people to write an important message to someone who was skeptical of their capabilities because of age. Despite being dismissed because of this factor, many people have achieved the unexpected and proved their doubters wrong.

Their success stories show we shouldn't hold ourselves back, no matter where we are in life.

If you had a chance to speak with someone who doubted you because of your age, what would you say?

Here are the empowering notes.
