Actors: What if you don’t feel “beautiful enough” to succeed?

Do you ever worry that you might not be “good-looking” enough or “thin enough” to succeed as an actor?

“You’re not good looking enough,” were the exact words Allison Janney heard from an agent in the beginning of her career.  Luckily, she didn’t internalize this mindset + went on to win 5 Emmys.

It’s less about beauty + weight and more about owning your uniqueness.

Where would Melissa McCarthy be today if she allowed negative thoughts about her weight to sabotage her unlimited potential?

She surely didn’t tell herself she needed to be thin to succeed in Hollywood.  And now she + many other actresses are breaking the mold of what is deemed “beautiful”.

Ultimately, confidence is always beautiful.  You can beany size or look and succeed in this business.  You just have to be clear about how you are perceived and what kinds of roles you can play.

So don’t let your looks or weight stop you from taking action.  Seek those who are similar to you whose work you admire + use them as your inspiration.

Ultimately, it all comes back to your belief in yourself.

And, since your beliefs are just a habit of thought, you can change yours at any time.

What would your auditions + meetings look like this week if you walked in thinking, feeling + knowing:

I am beautiful inside + outside.

You can choose to feel this way…right now.

Here’s to your unique beauty!  I’d love to know in the comments below what is beautifully unique about your beauty!

Morning Mindset Meditation

I am beautiful inside + outside. I no longer allow myself to feel that I am not good looking or thin enough to succeed as an actor. This story is a lie I have been telling myself to keep me stuck.

When I bring my inner beauty into the audition room, my outward beauty is noticed immediately.

What if I am far more beautiful than I have been giving myself credit for?  Anything that brings up, + anywhere I have been putting myself down or comparing myself to others’ looks or weight, I now let go + release it all.  I am free.

I am beautiful inside + outside. What if nothing about my looks or weight needed to change in order to attract the perfect acting jobs for me right now?  Anything that brings up + anywhere I felt I had to alter my looks or weight to succeed or become like someone else, I now let go + release it all.  I am free.

I am a piece of humanity + I am ready right now to portray a variety of characters + bring my unique looks and size to the role.There is no one exactly like me with my features, hair, skin + body.  There is no one who shares my fingerprint.

I am beautiful inside + outside.

What would it take for me own the feeling that I Am Beautiful Inside + Outside this week?
