"Oddly enough, it was the great Gordie Howe, the Babe Ruth of hockey, who gave me the key to becoming a professional. Gordie knew I wanted to be a professional screenwriter, and he told me, 'You must never stop being a fan of the game you’re in.' In other words, don’t look at your competitors as lucky or undeserving of their success. Envy will only eat away at your soul.
Admire and learn from what your 'rivals' are doing."
