A million to one shot! This is very accurate, so how does one change their odds? The more you do, the greater your odds. One can sit around waiting for their craft to grow, someone to show up, or for you to get that big break in life. Or, you can go practice your craft, market what you are doing so people can find you, and network with everyone you meet to bring people to your notice.
Fighting against all odds starts with you. Make a plan, set S.M.A.R.T. Goals to achieve this plan. Network, Market and Practice so that you can become more than just another “awesome thing hiding away”. Make efforts forward. Some walls might find their way in front of you. This only means you have an opportunity to figure out how to get through another situation. All this starts with you, having faith in your chances.
You’ll find teachers who are nowhere near where you want to be, but they have the knowledge to get you there. They may not have the desire to be who you are, or what your dreams search for. Teachers could have a goal in mind to help people accomplish their own goals. Listen to people who study your craft, know the business and want only the best for you. Where one is, does not determine who one is. Break the stereotypical fears of chance taking!
