Zac Efron: 'Find what you love'
Newly-single Zac Efron is happiest when he has confronted and conquered his fears.
The former High School Musical pin-up, now 28, has opened up about his positive outlook on life in the wake of his split from Sami Miro, his girlfriend of nearly two years, last month (Apr16).
"Try and find what really motivates you, find what you love, and do your best to keep searching for that thing," he told People magazine. "Work hard when you find it."
Zac believes the key to eternal happiness lies in the confrontation of fear, and that is something he tries to do on a regular basis.
"Every time I find myself afraid of anything, or scared to do something, and that is what is going to prevent me from doing it, usually that is when I try and do it, because usually that is when I find that it was something that I needed to do," he explained. "So if there is something that you are afraid of doing in life that could lead to something, or an opportunity that you're afraid of or nervous of, go for it."
While Zac could easily have a second career as a motivational speaker with that kind of attitude, he's firmly focused on his acting, especially in the wake of his split from Sami.
The couple began dating in 2014 but on 25 April (16), it was reported the hunk had deleted all pictures of the couple together from his Instagram account and unfollowed Sami on social media.
The pair made its last public appearance together at the MTV Movie Awards on 9 April (16).
