I know far more people who gave up coding or writing or art or music than I know who ever did anything with it. I also know a few who speak multiple languages, are published writers, can code in a dozen languages and have respected art in the publishing world. When I speak to both types its amazing how similar both speak. They both use the same terms and even have the same expectations. Yet one type finds acceptance and success in his industry and the other is locked out. (Here in the USA you’d be surprised how many with Tech or Art degrees cannot find any work but fast food or service industry.)
No matter the medium it is hard to master a craft or an art.
But in your opinion what is it that maximizes a person’s chances of mastering the pursuit- not just technically but also industry wise? How much is the commercial success luck?
