Standup comedian Cameron Esposito on success: “There is no formula for success—you just begin and then you continue. I’m often asked how to have a career in stand-up and the answer is confoundingly simple: Do the work. Over and over again, just do the work. After you build the courage to get onstage that first time, it’s all about repetition.”review

The scary & difficult part of life is building up the courage to get up there the first time. From there, its just refining something you’ve already achieved.
