Kate Henshaw shares five sources of motivation
Kate Henshaw recently shared five things that motivate her in an exclusive chat with The Nation.
The ageless actress said, “first and foremost know who you are, if you don’t know who you are people will tell you who you are, people will want you to act a certain way, secondly believe in yourself, work very hard and don’t limit yourself to the heights you can go for the things you can do, thirdly don’t be afraid to fail because when you fail you learn new stuff, failure is not the end of the world, it inspires you to do better and you learn to not do it that way again, four looks for support, a good support system is very important for anyone to be it someone who is trying to grow a business, someone who is going through depression, someone who is really trying to find out can I do this, can I try this thing, so support systems are very important and five love God, love your family, contribute towards your nation as much as you can.”
