Create your own greenlights

McConaughey says that we should not wait for external factors to give us permission or approval to do what we want. We should take action and create our own opportunities by being proactive, prepared, and persistent. He gives examples of how he created his own greenlight in his career, such as auditioning for roles he wanted, writing his own scripts, and producing his own movies.
