Starting off in robotics (question)

Hey guys so I will be starting my very first project soon, and I decided to start at a humble beginning and follow a simple cardboard robotic arm project from the arduino project hub.

Now I will be completely honest with you guys and say I’m a little disappointed in myself to not start with something that’s my own idea (I guess you could call it a pride thing).

I guess my question would be how all of you started? Did you start by taking the tony stark route and doing everything on your own and figuring it out? Or did you begin your journey by following other people until you could finally do it yourself. And how do you think your first couple of projects affected you even today?
