    This short autobiography of physicist Martinus Veltman is interesting. https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/1999/veltman-bio.html

    He overcame many of the concerns that posters in this section of the forum express - uninspiring teachers, subject matter they don't like, starting at late age etc. (However, it might be unreasonable to advise the average person to duplicate that feat.)
