I learned 7 inspiring lessons from watching last night’s Super Bowl game that you can apply to your acting career.
For those of you who missed it: Final score: Seattle Seahawks 43. Denver Broncos 8.
Whether you care about football or not, there’s always so much to learn from watching champions + the road it took to get there. 1) Why not you?
Growing up, Seattle Seahawk’s quarterback, Russell Wilson, heard his father tell him: “Why Not You?” And that’s exactly what he told his team all year long.: Why not us?
2) Believe + play like a champion every day.(more…)
We all do it. We allow the inner critic to take over + it often keep us from trying, leaping, asking, changing, and adventuring into the unknown.
After years of listening to my own inner critic, I now realize that it is simply my ego just trying to keep me safe. The ego likes control + is not a big fan of change. But within change is where growth + expansion reside. And I believe we have chosen to become actors in order to grow. (more…)
How do you react when a problem arises? Do you get caught up in chaos + allow your mind to overwhelm you with worry + negative thinking?
When we are in the middle of solving a problem, it is actually the best time to remind yourself that:
When you know that all is really well, you see every problem as an opportunity to learn, grow + expand. (more…)
I express gratitude for all have done + who I have become.
I take a deep breath in + feel a deep sense of gratitude for all of the wonderful things I have accomplished in my life so far. I exhale + let go of needing to compare myself to another actor’s journey.(more…)
One of the highest places you can get to
is being independent of the good opinions of other people.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer
So, you didn’t get the part. They “went another way.” When this happens, do you take it personally, feel rejected and start questioning yourself or your talent? Or, do you tell yourself, “it’s just one opinion and something better is on its way to me.”
What if the people the entertainment industry considers to be “experts”, are sometimes wrong? Here are 10 examples of why you shouldn’t care what others think! (more…)
SINCE LISTENING TO YOUR GUIDED MEDITATIONS, I BOOKED 2 FEATURE FILMS
"I bought Creating Powerful Auditions and I listen to it every morning. "Empowering Myself" is my absolute favorite meditation, sometimes I put it on repeat until I fully and truly feel every declaration. Since I've been listening to your guided meditations I booked my first feature film + also recently booked the lead role in my first horror film. Thank you for coming into my life!”
I BOOKED TWO ACTING GIGS IN THE SAME WEEK BECAUSE I HAD HER CD ON REPEAT!
"I listen to Wendy's guided meditations pretty much every chance I get. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have her amazing voice in my ear keeping me empowered, inspired + in the right mental space to persevere day in and day out. I booked two acting gigs in the same week because I had Wendy's Creating Powerful Auditions album on repeat. Thank you WENDY for your positivity + light!"
YOUR CREATION IS...VERY POWERFUL, IT CALMED ME, PREPARED ME & FOCUSED ME + I BOOKED JOBS.
"Since I began using your guided meditations I have now, in only a few months, booked up an entire year of work. Your creation is truly a blessing + very powerful. Before every audition I have done recently I have listened to at least 3 of your tracks and it has calmed me, prepared me and focused me."
I'VE TURNED A SLOW STREAK INTO A BOOKING STREAK AND I FEEL REALLY EMPOWERED.
"Wendy is so generous with her knowledge and understanding of the deeper, inside work that goes into living a healthy, happy, well balanced actor life. Her daily inspirations mean so much to me...and I'm grateful for the custom guided meditation she wrote for me. I've turned a slow streak into a booking streak & I feel really empowered."

YOUR AFFIRMATIONS ALLOWED ME TO STEP OUT OF THE FEAR AND BE PRESENT IN THE ROOM.
"I just returned from an audition after listening to your guided meditations. Your affirmations allowed me to step out of the fear and be present in the room. As I waited for my audition I envisioned the session being successful and feeling empowered afterward. And it was and I did."
I BOOKED THE JOB! LISTENING TO CREATING POWERFUL AUDITIONS MADE A DIFFERENCE!
"Been listening to your "Creating Powerful Auditions" mp3 daily since purchasing about a week ago. Listened to it on the way to an audition...took a few moments before leaving my car to do the visualizations. I walked into the audition room feeling totally empowered, feeling light. I booked the job. I feel your album made a difference. Thank you, Wendy."
