Doing Things That Scare Me The Most
“The one thing that drives me the most in life, is the things that scare me the most. The first time I sat down with Cat Around Films, and gave them this crazy idea to do a presentation on stage and time it to the second, because I had a video playing, and it was timed to my speech, they as opposed to what other production companies, American companies thought, which was that I was crazy, they’re the ones that were all in.
As much as I was scared, they were scared. And we made it work. My drive every day is to do the things that scare me the most. And why? Because the things that I remember in life the most are all those things that scared me the most. That would be from jumping off a plane, that would be getting on stage in front of 1500 people, when as recent as ten years ago, I wouldn’t be able to talk in front of three people in a meeting.
Because my jaw would freeze up, and I’d get pasty, and I’d get nervous to the point where I’d feel like I’m fainting. To go from that to being on stage over in front of a few thousand people. It’s the things that scare me the most that I’m most proud of.”
