You must dedicate yourself to your craft. You cannot go after something with a luke-warm attitude and win. You cannot go after something with a feeble attempt and expect to achieve greatness. You cannot go after something half-assed and expect to get what you came for. You must go all in.
If you want to become great at what you do there is no such thing as a Plan B. Why would you start your journey with the thought that you will fail? Why would you want to give yourself an out? If you want to become great you need to sail to the island and burn the boats! The only way off that island is success. The only way off the island is achievement! The only way off the island is to work!
Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, can do what I do. Put in the thousands of hours I do and you will be able to sculpt metal like I do. Hell, you will probably be better! You can do anything you set your mind to if you put in the hours. Do the work. Sacrifice social time. The road is not easy but the journey is rewarding.
