How can I take it a few steps farther & become a successful actress?

I am 13 years old. I have loved acting and being in the spotlight since I was a little girl. I have taken some different classes including : a drama camp, a few years of acting class, scene play, many local plays, & years of dance school including : ballet, jazz, tap, tumbling , & lyrical. I know that I will not automatically be able to land a lead role in a film but , I was wondering if anyone knew of some things that I could do to help my career like little stepping stones . I want to become a successful actress . I am not in it for the fame. Acting is what makes me happy & I would like to continue doing it throughout my life.
