London: Supermodel Naomi Campbell used to doubt her survival in the modelling world and insists she pushed herself beyond limits.

"To be honest, there were times I thought I wouldn`t survive. The time between 1998 and 2005 was especially bad. During that time I avoided looking in the mirror, because I didn`t like the person who was looking back at me," quoted her as saying.

The 40-year-old British model revealed that she assessed what she wants out of her life and thought of sitting and not working made her crazy.

"So I had to find out what I wanted and what I didn`t want. The thing is, as a model you`re used to being on the go, so just the thought of sitting down and thinking about something drives you crazy," she said.
