10 Mantras That Increased My Happiness (And Bookings!)

Have you been trying really hard to make your acting dreams happen this year? Are you feeling overworked and overwhelmed? I get it.

I used to think that working harder would produce better results, but ultimately that thinking often led to me feeling resentful and exhausted.

(While I watched those who didn’t work nearly as hard as I reap all kinds of rewards.) Can you relate?

So, now, whenever I find myself pushing to make things happen, I remind myself that there is power in ease, flow + letting go.

In fact, just last month, when I had a quiet few weeks with no auditions, I reminded myself to let go of how I think it all should go + what I think should be showing up right now.

Instead I used the time to clear the clutter, update my online presence, play with my kids, swim in the ocean and trust in the future I could not see. (This guided meditation helped me)

And what happened? Auditions came in.

And in those auditions, I brought that sense of ease, flow + letting go with me, and it resulted in my latest feature film booking (as one of the lead roles).

It also brought back a voice-over campaign (where I was the initial voice, but then had to re-audition to get the job back.)

I auditioned again + I got the job back for multiple TV spots over several recording sessions. (But, wow, talk about letting go in the process!)

So, I hope these examples help you to relax about whatever is or isn’t showing up for you right now + help you realize how much power lies in letting go.

Here are 5 graphics I created for you of mantras I have been telling myself lately that have helped me to increase my happiness (+ my bookings.)

The Real Key To True Happiness

I’ve been pausing more lately, without distraction from devices.

I’ve been listening to birds sing in my backyard, marveling at the freckles on my children’s faces and enjoying mindful moments where I deeply and sincerely appreciate my life.

And it seems the more I do this, the happier I become and the more unexpected wonderful surprises start to show up. (In the form of auditions, helpful people + exciting offers).

So, just for today, give yourself the gift of a mindful moment. How?
Put the phone down.
Go outside.
Take in the scenery.
Love yourself, right where you are.
Just for today, let go of needing anything to be different.

Let go of striving and pushing to change where you are. (more…)

One Secret To Booking More Work

I’m keeping it short + sweet today, as I’m about to head to San Jose for my first ever Tony Robbins Live Event! Woohoo!

Yep, I’m gonna be walking on coals, dancing in the aisles, and gathering more inspiration + insights to share with you all!

It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years, but never made the time.

I booked the tickets months ago (yep, to leave smack in the middle of pilot season), and even invited my best gal pal to join me.

Not only did I end up booking a great top-of-show-recurring-guest-star gig…but I was able to shoot 2 episodes in the last 2 weeks and just found out that I have this coming week OFF!

I spoke up and gave the production office my out of town dates, but also told them I was willing to move things around a bit, if need be.

(Secretly, I was hoping I didn’t have to cancel on Tony Robbins.)

I kept holding the vision of my friend and I in San Jose, while also feeling immense gratitude for this wonderful job.

And, well, it all worked out.

So, what’s on your joy + fun list these days?

Is there something you are putting off because you don’t want to miss out on an acting opportunity?

Where To Focus When Nothing Is Going On…..

When there are slow patches in your career, do you go down the dark rabbit hole of worry + self-doubt?

Do you start obsessing about how you did on your last audition or wondering if you’ll ever get another one?

I know. I’ve been there.

But, when you shift your focus from what is not working to what’s going right in your life, things will begin to shift in your favor.

This year started off kinda quiet for me (well, except all of my free trainings for actors!), and it would have been easy for me to start ranting + raving….

“What are my reps doing?”
“Where are my auditions?”
“What am I missing out on?”

But asking myself those questions only produces answers (and feelings) rooted in lack and fear.

So instead, I focused all of my energy on helping other actors (like you) succeed, while getting into a mental head-space of radical appreciation for what was working in my life.

Why would this matter?

Within the next week, I ended up getting 3 amazing auditions, including a request to read for a different role on a project I had already been in for late last year.

(Something I didn’t even know would come back around, and could have easily spent a lot of wasted time examining what I might have not done “right” at that initial audition.)

And then, a wonderful booking came in (which I can’t give details about yet) and an invitation to attend a red carpet Oscar party.

And all from shifting my focus + how it made me feel when nothing was going on. That’s it.

Sounds simple, right? It Is, but many actors choose to take the struggling route of complaining + blaming + then berating themselves. Then they spend their days busying themselves with “doing more” from this space of lack.

What they don’t realize, is that it’s hamster wheel that just produces more of the same.

So, what if, no matter how things look right now, you told yourself this:

Instead of spending anytime criticizing or berating myself today,

I marvel at all I’ve done + who I’ve become along the way.

Start Your Day In This Way + Set Yourself Up For Success

If you feel like you’re going a mile a minute lately, it might be time to slow down.

What if what you really needed was not to ‘do more’ or ‘try harder’, but rather thank yourself for all you’ve done so far?

We swipe, scroll + search. But for what? What if all you needed in this moment is right here in front of you?

For me, this month is all about simplification + appreciation.

I’m even on a mission to simplify my weekly Morning Mindset emails for you!

Since everything you tell yourself is an affirmation (whether it’s good or bad), today, I’d like to help you slow down + affirm what is working.

Starting your day in a state of appreciation will help you set yourself up for success.

Why?

unnamed
Here are some Mindset Mantras to help you get there. Breathe deeply + declare the following to yourself silently or out loud…

Today, I practice radical appreciation.

As I think, I create. As I feel, I attract. As I imagine, I become.

Today, I use my power of focus to think, feel + imagine what I want,
and clear my mind of anything that no longer serves me.

Instead of spending anytime criticizing or berating myself today,
I marvel at all I’ve done + who I’ve become along the way.

I express unconditional love for my home, myself, my family,
my friends + my business relationships.

Today, I practice radical appreciation.

My brand-new audio “Radical Appreciation” is totally free this month, with a 30 day free trial to my Spotlight Club.

One actress said after listening just once, “ I felt myself bursting with love and had tears in my eyes by the end! 

And it’s totally free in February.  Kind of a win-win-win if you ask me.

Why Wishing Things Were Different Works Against You

When you try to fix something, you fixate on it. You spend your time + energy focusing on the problem.

Albert Einstein once said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

So whatever feels like a problem this week, what if you simply reframed your thinking?

Better yet, instead of wishing things were different, what if you didn’t even see them as problems, but rather as the perfect next steps along your path?

I had an epiphany this week, in the midst of watching the Hollywood Reporter Roundtable discussion of dramatic actresses, (where Oprah and Nicole Kidman talk about being nervous and being scared of making fools of themselves), and I realized that thinking you will feel differently when you get to somewhere other than where you are right now, is an illusion.

And I just started asking this question….
unnamed
What if everything was perfect exactly as it is right now? What if you didn’t need one thing to change for you to feel good?

What if the timing of all that is and isn’t happening for you was perfect? (more…)

The Fastest Path To A Prosperous Life

Are you busy, working really hard, trying to create prosperity, success + fulfillment in your acting career + your life?  Do you feel a little worn out these days?

What if “doing more” was actually the very thing that was blocking your path to prosperity.

How? Because if you’re taking massive action from a place of lack, you’re actually working against yourself.

If all your action isn’t leading you to where you want to go, it’s time to realign your mind.
Prosperity is an inside game.

Sure, scarcity can be a motivator to get you moving, but eventually you must (more…)

How To Let Go Of Lack (25 Mantras For Prosperity)

Did you know there are 1440 minutes in every day?  How are you spending most of them?

Are you looking for what’s missing and commenting what isn’t working?

Are you looking for things to appreciate and talking about what is working?

If your thoughts and conversations all center around lack and scarcity, then you’ll have trouble aligning with prosperity.

So how do you let go of lack + tune into a more prosperous life?  It all begins with your focus.unnamed

How To Invite In Unlimited Prosperity

Happy Spring!  I love this time of year.  I spent all day yesterday, in the garden planting succulents.

And I got to thinking about what makes a succulent life + how to enjoying real prosperity in all areas.

At the root (no “planting pun intended”) of inviting in unlimited prosperity in all areas of our lives, is giving ourselves permission to be prosperous.  We must feel that it’s not only okay to have wealth, success, fulfillment + joy, but that it’s our birthright, no matter what we were taught growing up.

We must understand at a deep level, that our desire for a prosperous life, won’t somehow take anything away from anyone else.

The key, though, is not waiting for prosperity to arrive at your doorstep, in order to feel prosperous.  When you find ways to feel prosperous now, without even needing to see evidence of it, you will shift your experience.  The more prosperous you can feel, the more expectant you become, and the more your experience begins to match it.

Yes.  What we think, we create. What we feel, we attract. What we imagine, we become.

The Most Powerful Agent of Human Change

This quote stopped me in my tracks last week + I knew I had to share it with you.

Unexpected kindness is the MOST POWERFUL, LEAST COSTLY AND MOST UNDERRATED agent of human change.”

As we head into the holidays, what if each and everyone of us began practicing unexpected kindness everywhere we went?

In the check out line at the grocery store, at the post office, in traffic, with our children, our spouses, our mates, our families, our relatives (even the ones you’re not so fond of) and ourselves.

Why?  Because…
