You record videos and post them on youtube, you're not a film maker.
You have an expensive camera and take pictures, you're not a photographer.
You write poetry you're not a poet.
You write stories, you're not a writer.
Nowadays many people become very cocky with what they do. I admit, I used to think this, and I may still do this now, I'll let people decide, I've got quite the ego. However, this isn't about me, it's about people in general. I'm not trying to offend people with established careers or those who aspire to be, but rather, those who believe that they are when they have nothing to truly show.
My main example would probably be the younger generation, they think that they can make it big by posting random things on the internet. Such as many people posting videos on themselves on youtube expecting to get millions of hits. To their disappointment they only get maybe one hundred views, maybe even less.
These people expect to become huge hits overnight, but they don't stop to think that all the people who have made themselves successful have worked hard at it for many months, or years, for even most of their life.
People who are currently working to be in their careers are an exception, since they're actually trying to make themselves successful, such as students in college. College students are at the determining point in their lives, where they are majoring in the careers.
Feel free to post your own thoughts on the matter, those are mine.
