No matter what it is, composing, running, flying - keep doing it and you will eventually succeed. That is literally the only one thing that you need in order to succeed - just perseverance.
Don´t ever give up and take it seriously if you really want to be successful on this. Networking is a really important but do not act like a jerk. I already know cases of people that are trying to start in the business but their names are already in the “black list” of fellow composers and professionals of the industry.
