It appears that you are fixated on some perceived fame & glory of the end result. This is analogous to saying you really want to be a rock god, but you have never touched a guitar nor have ever tried to sing.

Given that you haven't any programming experience to this point, what you should be determining now is whether you really have an aptitude for the craft. Some do, most don't. So pick a language, read everything you can find, & write as much code as possible. And by all means, learn how to critique your own work so you become better, not perpetuate bad & ineffective practices.

You may also want to look into what courses are available at local colleges and/or universities. While there are professionals who have self-taught, most have taken the traditional route of going through four-year degree programs.
