When you bring a sense of freedom + play into your work, you appear so engaged + effortless, that you draw people to you.
When you are present in each real moment, the audience can’t wait to see what you will do next.
When you are planning + plotting what you will do, the audience is somehow not feeling authenticity from you, since in life, we cannot know what will happen next, until it actually happens.
Here are some simple, but effective mantras to remind you to bring a sense of freedom + play to all you do…
Morning Mindset Meditation
I bring a sense of freedom + play into all of my auditions.
I think of everyone in the audition room as my playmates. I am here to play,
I relax + let go of any negative thoughts or any need to be perfect.
I do not seek perfection. I seek to bring my humanity + all of its imperfections to the role.
I take a deep breath in + see myself bringing my joy of acting into each audition.
I exhale + release the need to control the outcome in any audition.
The more I let go and free fall in my work, the more fun I have.
Acting is play + I now let go of anything in my mind that has made it a challenge for me.
I embrace each audition + focus on having fun each step of the way.
