that's great!
I would just add one:

have your own definition of what success means for you, instead of blindly following the meaningless one that the startup porn tries to sell to everybody

Find out your WHY?

Not live on our head is the hardest thing to start to do.

That is Very Grate to Hear that but here is a thing that I want to share as well and that is you cannot be perfect in everything.

You are made for something special and only you can make that thing special and there is no one that will help you to achieve for which you are truly made and have passion as well.

The Only thing that you can do is that you can be honest to yourself and work as well. And Doing Best to Show yourself that you are worthy as well.

Very good tips! Can also agree with others that 6th is the biggest hurdle for any developer, especially those new in the industry.
