There’s a danger in assuming your passion and skill will take you where you want to go. I’ve seen players upon players who have the quality to become a professional simply fizzle out into the background. This isn’t true for all cases, but definitely for the majority of cases.
Most players are looking for a map: here’s how you train, here’s where you should play, here’s what you should do, and etc. Although this can be helpful, this is the route hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of players are taking. How do you plan on standing out?
Instead of following the map, be so good you can’t be ignored. If you’re focusing on becoming so good you can’t be ignored, you will probably be noticed. There’s an infinite power to living everyday with this mindset. Instead of following a map, you’ll create a path.
