Learn the structure and the craft of the art form you're looking to use.

Take some underling jobs in it so that you can see every angle of it.

And after you study all the different ways you can do it, all the theories and have helped other people do it a few times?

You take all that structure and all that knowledge to inform the process:

Of going out there and saying what you feel the need to say, damn the torpedos, damn if it IS stupid, damn if it IS smart:

Unless you were born very rich or into a connected family, eighty percent of success is forcing luck and you force luck by believing in yourself.

Believing in yourself to the point of delusion. Maybe not PAST the point of delusion... but right up to it.

Repeat to yourself, every day, in your head in ten different places:

"I am awesome and brilliant and it's only a matter of time, hard work and a little bit of luck before everyone sees how great I am".

Positive thinking, my friend, it's not just for crystal-grabbers anymore.

Remember: everything is subjective. If you act like you're great, some people will start to believe it.
