Domestication Kills The Soul

By age 25, a man has done something if he is to do anything.

Though wiser with age, action is a young man's game. With age comes a love of comfort, which avoids not only difficult efforts, but also the psychological taxing, such as risking hopes and expectations on efforts with a reasonable prospect of failing. Hesitation injures and kills, leading to withdrawal.

Risk aversion makes boring and safe as well as unfulfilled. A wild beast tamed into a domesticated animal is drained of ambition, urgency, and desire, turned into a pathetic tamed creature who stares at televisions and consumes intoxicants to tune out the world he hides from.
