Is it really hard to become a stock broker?€$?

I'm an 18 year old guy, I'm still in high school and I don't think any job out there would be better for me than being a stock broker, I can't think of anything else that I like, I have no plan B, I'm currently takin accounting 2 and AP Macroeconomics, but accounting is just not for me, it's... show more I'm an 18 year old guy, I'm still in high school and I don't think any job out there would be better for me than being a stock broker, I can't think of anything else that I like, I have no plan B, I'm currently takin accounting 2 and AP Macroeconomics, but accounting is just not for me, it's really boring and I find no inspiration while doing it, on the other hand Macro is really interesting, specially when we talk about monetary policy, Stock market, Banking. I asked my Econ teacher what would be the best major for what I wanna be and he said to take finance since "finance" majors focus more on the stock market more than anybody else. I don't wanna be a stock broker because of the money or the glamour that the Job has, I want to do it because I like, it looks like a very fun game to play, where you need skills and an agile mind, and I like that, the money is an incentive but not the main reason of why I like it.
Is there anything I should be doing right now at my age to be competitive in the future?
I know you have to pass a 250 multiple choice exam called series 7 in order to obtain the license, and that you need a brokerage firm to sponsor you to be able to take the test, in my case it'd be "Umpqua Holdings Corporation" in Portland Oregon, which is where I live. Is the only firm there is in the city. So how should I be preparing myself right now? I think I really have a passion for this job.
