How Joaquin Phoenix Rose From The Ashes of His Tragic Life and Successfully Played The Joker - Motivational videoJoaquin Phoenix was born in a religious group where his whole family was part of. During the 70's, Phoenix, his parents and his 4 siblings, spent their time traveling with the group trough the United States. But they decided to escape and move to LA.But even after they escaped, things were hard. His parents struggled with poverty, and there was a time when the entire family was homeless. The whole family used to sleep in a car parked in a friend's driveway.They also lived in one bedroom apartment, no kids allowed. And the Phoenix family had 5 kids. So when the owner came to visit, the kids had to hide behind a laundry machine and stay hidden for hours.As a way to provide food for the poor family, the children used to perform on the streets and at many talent shows.So they were soon discovered by an agent, and started acting in commercials and TV shows. Especially Phoenix and his brother River. They had a bright future ahead of them. But one tragedy devastated the family.When Phoenix was just 19-years-old he made the painful 911 call to save his 23 year old brother River . But sadly his brother didn't make it. It led him to retreat from the public for a year.For his work as an actor, Phoenix has received a Grammy Award, a Golden Globe and three Oscar nominations. With every new role he is constantly pushing boundaries. So he's the lead role in one of the most anticipated movies of 2019 - Joker.But Even though he's an actor for more than 30 years, he still gets "nauseous" the day before he films. He opened up that he suffers from anxiety. He's uncontrollably shaking, physically nervous and terrified on every film set. Every time. And he was initially scared to take on the Joker role. So Don't let fear stand in the way of your greatness. We all have things we love to do. But we let fear control our decisions. We are terrified of messing things up, we are terrified of failing, what other people might think, .. so the result is not doing what we love. And that's sad.There are so many people who have turned down amazing opportunities because they were scared and anxious. You deserve to live your life to the fullest and enjoy every moment. Feel the fear and do it anyway. - Susan JeffersMusic:Ross Bugden - Music:Epic and Emotional Music (Copyright and Royalty Free) - Parallel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je9bn...
