…you probably didn’t want it enough.” – Anon.
A slightly scary quote that doesn’t draw the line between constructive passion and deranged desire, but I can relate to the spirit that hard work delivers results.
It is this quote that is keeping me going as I try to break into a new world and a new level. It’s been demoralising searching for friends who have successfully entered the industry in order to get some pointers, and finding none. (The silver lining is that I now have a very respectable list of things not to do.) But that is not to say I haven’t gotten any help – I’ve managed to link up with some really nice people working within the respective companies who have given me invaluable advice.
I’ll just give it my best shot, and if it doesn’t work out at least I have no one to blame -- not even myself.
Will keep you guys updated on my progress. Hopefully there will be a lot more “!!!!!!” rather than “….”.
