I tried the above steps and it worked perfectly for me, it will work for you also. All required from you is patience and avoid invalid activities. Buying of traffic from unknown sources and platforms as well as clicking your own ads and so on can lead to ads limit, so avoid all of that.
The bottom line is that if you want to stay long with the adsense platform then follow their rules and regulations and your good to go.
