Post-Emmy Funk? 11 Mindset Mantras To Improve Your Mood

If you watched the Emmys on Sunday night, and it left you feeling inspired + hopeful for the possibilities ahead for you, that’s awesome.

But if you turned off the TV and went to bed wondering…

  • Will it ever happen for me?
  • What do I do to get to where I want to go?
  • How will I ever achieve my biggest acting dreams?

Here’s what you need to know today:

The only way to get to where you want to go, is to first make peace with where you are. 

So, if you woke up today feeling blue about your career, guess what? You simply added meaning to an event.

You watched an awards show (an event) and made the fact that you aren’t there indicate that you have somehow failed as an actor (meaning you added).  And now you feel horrible.  (current outcome)

Here’s what that math would look like on a chalk board: (more…)

5 Ways To Bring Your Life Back Into Balance This Week

It’s so easy to look around the chaos in our world and our weather, and respond with fear, worry or anger.

It’s also easy to take these stressful feelings and redirect them (often unconsciously) towards your loved ones or even towards yourself.

But, the more chaos that surfaces in the world (or in your own life), the more important it becomes to find a still point in your heart.

When you clear space in your mind + your heart, and become a witness to your pain or problems, without engaging in your own suffering, you create new neural pathways to the solution.

It’s the stillness that ultimately sets you free + brings your life back into balance.

When you get still in your heart + mind, every disruption can lead you to an even bigger awakening.

So, what if instead of believing all the negative noise in your head, you (more…)

How To Retrain Your Brain For Audition Success

How do you start your day when you have an audition?
Do you speak lovingly to yourself, or are you filled with worry, doubt or fear?

How you begin your day, is usually how you live your life. Since every thought you think is creating your experience, it helps to be mindful of what you are telling yourself. We are all using affirmations all day long, the question is, are you affirming the positive or the negative?

You’ll know by the way you feel.

Choose To Change It
If you don’t like how you feel, change your thoughts.

When you start to change your way of thinking, your inner voice will always react immediately with either fear or love.

But what if you used a different criteria for responding to your habitual internal dialogue?

Try this: “If it feels good, it’s true for me. If it feels bad, it’s a lie.”

How To Make Today A Fresh Start

How often do you wake up + start thinking the same thoughts you did yesterday?

Why isn’t my agent getting me more auditions?
Why didn’t I get a callback?
Why does that actress in my class book everything?.
Why can’t I_____________? (fill in the blank)

But what you miss when you start your day asking the same questions you asked yourself yesterday, is that, it is not the agent, the casting director or ‘this business’ that is keeping you stuck.

It is you.

Your habit of daily negative focus is what keeps you glued to where you are.

Begin today by simply noticing where you focus your thoughts in all kinds of situations.

When you’re stuck in traffic, do you tend to focus on the stopped traffic or do you notice the palm trees?

unnamed
Shift your focus. Shift everything. (more…)

How To Handle Disappointment (For Real)

Ever find yourself feeling elated, excited + enthusiastic about life and then the next week find yourself feeling disappointed, sad or just crying in a heap?

This was me for the first 2 weeks of May…riding high and then feeling really low.

The highs are easy, right?

But, when the low point came, I found myself saying things like “You know that feeling bad isn’t helping. You have a great life. Snap out of it. What’s your problem?” 

Then, I finally allowed myself to just not feel good, to lay on the couch with my dog and simply sob for all kinds of reasons and for no reason at all (while telling him he has it all figured out – after all, “dog” is “god” backwards + that’s gotta mean something!)

I allowed myself to embrace the situation as it was, to feel whatever it was I was feeling without telling myself I should feel better or that I should be doing something else (something other than sobbing with my dog while my sweet husband offered his support.)

And ya know what? I highly recommend it.

What I came to discover is that the way “out” of those disappointing, frustrating + sad moments is to go fully through them.

The best way to handle it all is to allow yourself to come unhinged + give yourself permission to not have to “get it together” on demand.

So here’s what I now know.

How To Start Feeling Unstoppable

We all know the feeling of being unstoppable? Those days when you get out of bed before your alarm rings, finish an intense workout, have some stranger smile at you in the grocery store and get a call saying you booked the job. Yeah, those are really good kinds of days, right?

But how do you feel unstoppable when you don’t book the job, no one looks your way + you want to pull the covers over and sleep in?

Well, some days, sleeping in might be just the thing you need.

But if, on most days, you’re waiting to book a job to start feeling unstoppable, you’re going to have a lot of not-so-great days.

Here’s my advice:

The 2 Biggest Factors That Keep You From Your Dreams

The two biggest factors that keep you from your dreams might actually surprise you.

They are…needing + wanting.

The definitions of want + need actually imply a lack of something deemed necessary, and are at the opposite energetic spectrum of feeling fulfilled + satisfied.

So, it might be time to take a closer look at what you are “needing + wanting” and ask yourself “Why does this matter so much to me?”

If you want to get somewhere in your career because you need it to define:

  • your value
  • your worth
  • your importance
  • or that you “really matter…”

Then what you want will continue to elude you.  Why?

This kind of thinking actually puts you in a state of lack – needing some outer circumstance to give you the abundance you seek.

The reality is that it actually works the other way around.

Best selling author Abraham-Hicks states it so simply + yet profoundly with these seven words…..

Until It Doesn't Matter
Did you really get that? Until it doesn’t matter, it can’t be.

So in order to acquire anything in the physical world, (more…)

Why? Well, real transformation can’t happen without conscious awareness…

-30
Yes. When I acknowledge + accept, I can transform.

For most actors, it’s way easier to spend the day/month/year blaming their agents, weight, looks, age, lack of connections or number of auditions for their lack of results,

But what hundreds of actors uncovered in my Free Video Series, was that the actual act of blaming was the thing that was not only keeping them in victim mode, but was also the very thing that was keeping them stuck.

Once you realize that the #1 factor that determines your success, (more…)
