How often do you not take the shot?

Today is March 7 and the Navigate the Chaos question to consider is “how often do you not take the shot?” In any given day there are dozens, if not hundreds, of reasons why you do not take a shot at something. Did you ever stop and ask yourself how often you stop yourself?


On one day in 2014 Auli'i Cravalho took a last minute shot. Cravalho is an American actress and singer. She made her acting debut as the title character in the 2016 film Moana at 16 years of age. Cravalho was born in Kohala, Hawaii. She is of Chinese, Irish, Native Hawaiian, Portuguese, and Puerto Rican descent. At the time she made her breakthrough, she was living in Mililani, Hawaii with her mother, and was in her freshman year of high school at Kamehameha Schools' Kapālama campus.


Cravalho has stated that she was initially not going to audition for Moana. According to Cravalho “I was getting through my freshman year, and there were already so many great submissions over YouTube.” However, an Oahu talent agent discovered her at a charity competition and encouraged her to audition for the role. The Walt Disney Company has stated that Cravalho was the last person to audition out of hundreds of actresses. Cravalho is the youngest actress to ever voice a Disney princess and plays the first ever Polynesian Disney princess.


In February 2017, it was announced that she had been cast in the pilot for the NBC show Drama High. Hall of Fame hockey player Wayne Gretzky noted "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."


Auli'i Cravalho took a last minute shot and scored the performance of a lifetime and became the youngest actress to ever voice a Disney princess. How often do you not take the shot? What prevents you from taking the shot?
