In reply to boulder_dweeb :

In my youth I wanted to be a professional race car driver. I started early with a burning ambition and quickly found that only the front of the pack got any attention and that was occupied by very wealthy or much older drivers with a whole lot more knowledge and drive than I could bring to the table.  
     Others with ambition like me wound up being track bums. Working insane hours for a few moments  of glory a year.  
I don't regret a moment but it's not about skill and desire. Luck and connections play a massive part in success.
