No one owes you anything. I never understood this from any generation since all generations will have to earn what they have. It can take years to accomplish what you are seeking. There is no overnight success. It is all an illusion. Others have to see you are taking what you are doing seriously. When they don't see you doing it day in and day out, others start to question you. Showing dedication and work into what you love is so important. Plus it creates discipline for you and others around you.
What are you serious about enough to put in the time and work?
