Put 6 chess boards in your room, all with tough positions to work through at all times.

 

Put 4 screens, 1 on each of the walls. There must always be a master game playing on them.

 

Always have an audio of chess study playing in the room, even when you go to sleep. Fuse it with calm sounds.

 

Get a chequered bed cover. And if you can, put a mirror on the ceiling to see yourself on the chequered covers every time you look up.

 

Do this, and you might succeed.

 

P.S. always, and I mean always keep pot plants in this room, and water bowls (fish bowls will do).

 

And the beard! Don't forget the beard!

The beard is definitely the most important part.

Yes! And if you can be a little insane at the same time it is near 100% perfect.

In 1975 I watched a tournament in Singapore. ~90% of the 300+ participants carried around "My 60 Memorable Games." His games were inspiring, his analysis impeccable. It was the closest thing players had to Stockfish. 

Though I can no longer follow the variations in my head, I still read "60" regularly because of the life his descriptions breathed into those chess gems. A glimpse into the mind of a genius. A triumph over (real) Russian collusion that tried to stop him.

I dont think joining the gop is going to make the original poster a genius, but you are very complimentary to suggest it is. Most people agree he cannot become like Fischer because there is only one, and can never be repeated. The hard work Fischer did to become the best is something others have tried, with some success sometimes.

Maybe the club you mentioned is full of geniuses but the endless studying, practice, success, and fame isn't going to happen simply by just joining it.
