I'm 17 and I'm only just realising what my passions are, but it's too late to follow my dreams now. I feel so disappointed and I just wish I could go back and redo my life. What can I do? How can I stop feeling like this?

How is it too late to follow your dreams? Last I heard, 17 is still rather young. In fact, I just discovered a passion of my own last year and I'm 25. Nah, you have plenty of time to pursue your passion. What is your passion, if I may ask?

We're going to assume you don't have a terminal disease and you're going to die tomorrow. If you live to the age of 65, you have 48 more years to do your thing.

You're going to have a hard life if you continue to have a negative view on how things are going in your life.

Make a goal - when something comes up to interfere or throw you off course, make a new plan or adjust what's in place. It's only too late when you die.

At 17 .. You are only beginning to reach the tip of the iceburg in terms of your potential.  Live each day like it's your last .. Strive to do good in all you attempt .. Then you will have few regrets ..  Be responsible, be diligent .. And make your life work FOR you, not AGAINST you.

I've started my A levels. I've picked all the wrong things because last year I didn't know what I wanted to do. And even if I had, we had to pick our GCSEs when we were 12/13. How is anyone supposed to know what they want to do with the rest of their life when they're 12?! I sure didn't.

I also want to be a dancer, but you have to train for basically your whole life. If I start now I'll still be 10 years behind everyone else. I will never be able to catch up.

That's why it's too late for me. I feel so hopeless about it.

Nahh, it's not too late, in any way. What A levels did you select? You might still be a dancer, but you are right, it's hard work and most people don't make it anyway.
