Not living up to my fullest potential, fear of failing, it’s also been said that we learn more from failures than success.
WHAT DOES SUCCESS MEANS TO YOU?
Success to me is saying I will do something and actually getting it done. To some it means luxury cars and houses, lots of money in their bank account, those are things one can’t control, but you can actually control your actions by getting up daily and grinding faithfully until you get a result.
ANY REGRETS IN LIFE? AND WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY IN YOUR CAREER?
No regrets in life. To me, I feel whatever happens in our lives could either be a blessing or a lesson. Also never bother myself about the outcome of an audition. No one knows what they want. Do your best and leave the rest to God.
