Start very(very very) small. Make small little programs that don't do much but are a complete project by the end.

My first ever program was a coin flipper. You hit space bar and either "heads" or "tails" was displayed on the screen. It was a very rewarding program and I felt accomplished. I was able to expand on it to where it kept stats and all.

I wrote that little program in 1979. And now I'm a programmer in real life.

Yes, C++ is the industry standard. Other languages are used, but that's the core.

Also, keep in mind that most companies are heavily moving towards C++11 or newer, so if you are learning it from scratch, you should try and find books and/or tutorials that are based around C++11 or C++14. Understanding old style C++ and even C are still helpful, however.
