It's insane for anyone to think that this happens overnight. If you're
serious about security be ready for the long haul.
Focus on network engineering : learn ip and know it well
Learn C: Once you learn C all of these other languages are kiddy stuff. You
need to write your own programs and decipher other programs in the future.
Encryption is the last thing you should focus on. Pick up what you can, but
understand that once you serious go down that path you're more than likely
to devote all of your time to it. There are very few cryptographers and
cryptanalyst who work on something as trivial as firewalls.
