I remember many years ago when I wanted to be an actor. I acted through high school, won an award or two (not first place), went into theater in college and was miserable. The acting teachers were bitter and female. They taught because they couldn't make a living in the theater. And if you were young, pretty and female - watch out! Many tried tearing young girls, including myself, to shreds - which stemmed from their own insecurities. But there was one teacher and she was kind, helpful and caring. She held me up. It was there that I heard (and I'm paraphrasing on this one) --- Unless you're acting because you can't imagine doing anything else - why do it? Which meant - don't do it because you are seeking fame or fortune, or anything else. Do it because you can't NOT do it.
