SHARE AN EXAMPLE OF A CHALLENGE YOU OVERCAME TO FIND YOUR MAGIC?

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO GUYS WHO ARE LOOKING TO PURSUE THEIR PASSIONS BUT MIGHT NOT HAVE THE CONFIDENCE TO DO SO?
It’s an introspective process that involves questioning if it's what makes you happy. Say you need to wake up at 3am because you’re needed on set. Would you be comfortable? If you attended castings and auditions and out of 20 you’re able to book one, would you lose your passion? If the answer is yes, then maybe you need to do a bit more introspection. It’s all about not losing hope and carrying on until you reach the stars. It's always possible.
