Henry Winkler Shares Motivation That Keeps Him Going
When he’s not welcoming new babies into the world, Henry Winkler loves to take on new projects. Though he’s not driven by fame, he does have a strong work ethic. The actor recently shared that he has some interesting motivators that keep him going strong.
“Anxiety and fear,” Winkler says. “Fear that I will not be relevant. And I don’t mean famous, I just mean that I will not be in the mix. I take my pick and my axe and I go to work everyday and I mine the system. I don’t wait necessarily for it to come to me.”
Whatever he’s doing, it’s working. Winkler is involved in a number of projects. He’s also shown that he’s super versatile, having taken on roles on comedy, drama and horror. And he does it all with a sense of groundedness.
