Im still trying to figure those steps out myself, so far I’ve got :
1. Waste no time because it’s very limited, you’ll realize that as you get older
2. Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you, prepare yourself to approach them yourself
3. Network! The more people you know the better.
4. Try to make every day a productive one, make yourself better, the more qualified you are the better your chances are.
5. Never stop trying, persistence has been known to unlock doors that those who gave up never even got close to
Thats all I got for now, maybe I’m wrong but the future will tell..
