If you're looking at the possibility of making yourself into a screenwriter that can actually make his/her living from writing movies, then the following might prove encouraging:
    • Rejection comes with the territory - get over it - in fact, banish the word "rejection" from your world view.  
    • Critiques of your work should be seen as the universe's way of helping you to make your script as good as it can be. 
    • Editing is everything.
    • If you really believe in something, fight for it. Don't write stories you don't believe in.
    • Write something you’d want to watch – don’t write to please others.
    • Take risks with your writing.
    • Share and talk about your ideas with strangers. Discover the  secret and joyous discoveries that can be had from riding on public transport.
    • Act professionally, at all times.  Arrive ON TIME for all meetings. Otherwise you’ll be remembered, but for all the wrong reasons.
    • Don’t hand in work late, deadlines are there for a reason.
    • Believe in yourself – everyone has doubts, everyone has fears. Don't give in to them.
    • Don't be intimidated by lists like this.
