5.) if possible, find someone to teach you, either via lessons, or find a job where you will be working under someone skilled who will be willing to share his knowledge - this is the fastest way to progress
6.) keep going until you find success, it won’t happen overnight

There is not a quick way to become a graphic designer. Ask yourself first if you really want to do this. And if the answer is yes attend to a design school or take some design classes. After you finish the school prepare yourself to spend the next 5 years practicing 10-12 hours / day. Only after few years of hard work you will be able to came here and upload quality items or you can take a real job as a graphic designer. Keep in mind, if you just learn how to use few graphic software you are a computer operator not a graphic designer.
