The Long Game Part 1: Why Leonardo DaVinci was no genius from Delve on Vimeo.
This video series about Leonardo Da Vinci does a good job at making sure you stay positive. A "Glass half full" sort of mindset.
"Turns out, it took Da Vinci 17 long years of fruitless work until [he] got his “big break”. And all the while he was pumping out piece after piece after piece."But even though in part 2 they point out that nobody ever focuses on the bad years or exactly what they did during that time (I always ask what about Jesus, during his grade school years, never hear about that one).
The thing that I feel they just kind of gloss over is... Dumb luck!

Sure the examples show that these people practiced and learned more about what they did constantly, which is good. But after all that, it's still all about getting yourself out there. And then, for some reason or another, something can happen that changes everything.
No matter what age you are, if you're truly passionate it seems to me meeting new people whenever possible is also a good tactic to use. You never know what they might have to offer.
