Going through steps of chasing dreams, you learn things; mainly things about yourself. One thing I've learned is the pattern to success which is Patience, Perseverance, and Performance.
"PATIENCE is a virtue". That quote holds so much truth, especially this day in age where everything is instantaneous. You have to remain patient when you feel like things aren't going anywhere; something will give.
Overtime things will start to move and you'll start feeling good. Then you hit a roadblock and you might not have an idea to get past it. PERSEVERANCE is key. Break through the road block, hop over it, go around it, shit you might have to go backwards to find another way but persevere and you'll go very far with that quality.
When you finally got your shot, give 100% of yourself and PERFORM. You've practiced patience and you've persevered through what you thought was impossible, now you got your shot. It's time to kill it!
