How can I grab power from a ceiling light that is controlled by a wall switch, or from an electrical outlet with one cable in and none out, to power a new three way switch?

Power can be run to the light 1st or the wall switch
No way of telling unless you take the face plate off & look
If there is only 1 cable at the switch then power was run to the light 1st

Outlet- unless controlled by a wall switch - will always have power

Is the three way switch setup for the same light or a different light?
