"Fear is a motivator - I'd have to find another job in an office doing something I don't want to do, maybe have to move somewhere else, and that makes me want to be successful."

  • Mantra: Fear is what keeps me going, rather than a mantra. I have so many obligations. I just want to live the way I want to live and be successful. Fear is a motivator — I’d have to find another job in an office doing something I don’t want to do, maybe have to move somewhere else, and that makes me want to be successful and drives me. I want this to work out so I give it 110% so I know it will work out. So far so good!
