and I definitely wouldn’t have told my agent “No, I’m going.” when he suggested I turn down the initial audition for my role on Atypical (that has now turned into 4 wonderful seasons in a role I love to play).
And I definitely wouldn’t have been up “For Your Emmy Consideration As Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series” for my work on Atypical.
If I let fear stop me, I wouldn’t have done any of those things. None of it.
Many actors are starting this week feeling overwhelmed, frustrated + not knowing where to begin to create the success they crave in 2021.
But if you were with me throughout The 5-Day Success Breakthrough Experience and my Free Masterclasses this past week, you are feeling lighter, clearer, empowered, focused, recharged and excited for the road ahead.
My heart is so full today, as thousands of actors from all over the world joined me in learning how to shed all kinds of limitations, fear, self doubt and now know the exact steps to take to begin their breakthrough year.
In fact, inside of 90 minutes, those who came to my Live Masterclass Encores this weekend shared these vulnerable moments with me….
HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS:
You can watch the REPLAY now. << no opt in required. Come learn the 5 steps to radically transform your acting career + your personal happiness (and see what all the buzz is all about).
I’ve spent the last 7 days watching brave + committed actors dive inward + take an honest look at what’s been stopping them from creating more success + happiness in their acting careers + their personal lives
Here’s what I want to share with you today – as we begin the 3rd week of 2021.
To radically transform your career, you must first radically transform your inner game.
Yes, it all begins, by looking within.
Why? Well, real transformation can’t happen without conscious awareness…
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.
If you started out 2021 hopeful, and 11 days in you’re feeling out of whack, I get it.
If you need a massive RESET this week and are craving tools + insights to help you stay more grounded, focused and inspired, even with all that is going on in the world, then do something for yourself today that will empower + uplift you.
Not sure what that is? Com join me The Free 5-Day Success Breakthrough Experience that kicks off today at 11am.
I’m teaching live (for free) for 5 days straight, helping actors to reflect, release, refocus, reignite + reimagine what is possible.
We can’t achieve our biggest dreams and become who we are destined to be without self-reflection + self-mastery.
What might happen if you started the year (or even this week) reflecting on what’s been standing in your way + determining what’s been weighing you down?
Most people would rather dive into “massive action,” than take a moment and self-reflect.
Join me LIVE today at 11am PST, for our first of 5 daily breakthrough free trainings.
Today you’ll learn….. Why most actors won’t succeed in 2021 (and how to not be one of them).Why taking massive action is actually not the first step as the New Year begins.How to create less struggle + more flow in your life + acting career. Thousands of actors from all over the world are buzzing with excitement, already feeling more hopeful + filled with possibility inside our private 5-Day event Facebook group, and I’d love to see you there too.
And I’m revealing why taking “massive action” towards your goals might not be the best way to begin the New Year, and why most actors won’t see results in 2021 (and how to not be one of them). And that’s just Day 1.
The 5-day event kicks off next Monday, January 11, so save your seat now + get some goodies from me before we even begin.
With the New Year is right around the corner, and we say goodbye to 2020 (amen!), have you been thinking about how you’re going to make 2021 your best year yet?
While you’re taking down the holiday decorations, I’d love to help you put a plan in place now.
This time last year I was invited to guest speak in Atlanta, New York, Toronto, Vancouver and London, and teach actors how to create real breakthroughs. (Loved meeting so many actors in this community in person!).
This January, I’m not traveling the world, so you’re invited to my house for 5 days! Well, virtually.
Each day, we’ll connect LIVE for a short but powerful breakthrough training where I’ll guide you to release what’s been blocking you, let go of limitations, gain clarity, eliminate overwhelm + align with what you really want in 2021. And it’s totally free!
And to kick things off, I’m going to share why “muscling” to make your dreams come true in 2021 is NOT the way to begin…
I’m also gonna walk you through a simple process to help you unload the weight off your shoulders (thanks 2020!) and begin the New Year feeling empowered, inspired and ready to do what’s calling you, not what you feel you “should do” to “make it happen.”
I’ve put together 5 days of powerful + immersive breakthrough lessons that I know will be so helpful for you, no matter what stage of your acting career you are in + no matter where you live in the world.
So, shall I put you on the guest list to get insider tips + actionable strategies to kick off the New Year?
I have two gifts for you today. One to help you say goodbye to 2020 (hallelujah!), and the other to help you begin your best year yet. (Bring on 2021!)
Let’s start with the New Year gift, shall we? I’m so excited to personally invite you to kick off January with me LIVE! I’m hosting a totally free 5-day event where I’ll walk you through the exact steps to begin your breakthrough year. Click here to register + save your spot.
I know this year has been a doozy, so I’m kicking off 2021 helping actors to reflect, release, refocus, reignite + reimagine what is possible in 2021. You’ll learn proven strategies + simple tips to help you gain clarity, eliminate overwhelm + jumpstart January in just 5 days.
Ok here’s the gift to help you say goodbye to 2020 (and feel good about where you are in life + career).
As the year ends, and you take stock of all you’ve learned in 2020 (so many lessons, right?), I hope you’ll pause today + remember that you play many roles in your life and they are all meaningful and valuable.
“Actor” is only one of those roles, just as “what you’ve done” so far in your career is only one facet of the multi-faceted diamond that is you.
Here is a loving reminder to help you end the year knowing that not only are you enough exactly as you are right now, but that you are a precious gift.
Ever get an audition or self-tape and ask yourself this question…What do I think the casting director wants to see from me?
And then deliver exactly what you think they want…and then hear nothing?
Have you ever had impulses or ideas about how to play a character, but block them out because you think “it’s probably not what they’re looking for?”
If this feels very familiar, just know you’re not the only one who plays this frustrating game of mental gymnastics.
In fact, New York triple threat, Jordan Fife Hunt knew this story all too well, because he was living it. And despite his amazing talents as an actor, singer + dancer, worrying about “what they might be looking for,” was actually getting in his way.
Not only did he discover how to get out of this self-sabotaging loop and free himself, but it resulted in booking 5 shows last year, including one of his breakthrough goals, to originate a role in a musical + be part of the “Original Cast Recording.”

As the year comes to a close, many actors have told me that they’re feeling anxiety as they look back on 2020 and think, “I should have been busier. I should have done more with my time. I shouldn’t have taken a break.”
And that kind of thinking often leads to, “I’m too old, it’s too late or I should be further along by now.” Can you relate?
Piling on the shame, guilt + negative self-talk is no way to end a year like 2020.
But what if I told you that it’s all okay. It’s okay if you haven’t booked anything this year. Heck, it’s even okay if you haven’t booked anything in a few years. It’s okay if you took a break. It’s even okay if 2020 turned your hair grey.
That’s exactly where Los Angeles actress, Shirley Jordan was when we met. Not only had she not booked a commercial in a few years, but she had to take some time off due to a health issue and needed to tend to her own healing. She was having serious FOMO. (Fear of missing out).
So whether you’ve been taking a break amidst a pandemic, for a health issue, to take care of aging parents, raise a family or feeling like you aged an entire decade in 2020, today’s story will show you the way back to booking.
Learn how Shirley went from a huge “time off” in her career to recurring on Sistas, and appearing on top TV shows like This Is Us, NCIS, Code Black, The Affair. Family Reunion, Bunk’D, and starring in commercials.
And guess what? The first step wasn’t making a massive action plan for Shirley to trudge through. It actually was more about letting go of all the guilt, shame, frustration + feeling like she “should be doing more” during her time off. Then what happened? She took it one step at a time, and lots of big bookings, including national commercials, and recurring roles on hit TV shows showed up..
I know Shirley’s story will inspire you to know that you can get from where you are right now to where you want to go. Watch“From Taking A Break To Tons Of Big Bookings: Shirley Jordan’s Success Breakthrough Story.”
Can you imagine what 2021 would feel + look like without the mental baggage of fear, frustration, shame or guilt about what you did or didn’t accomplish in 2020?
Today, I want to express my sincere gratitude for YOU. I am so thankful to share this journey with you. Yes, 2020 has been quite a year, and we both know that tending to your own inner peace has never been more vital and necessary.

Feeling left out while other people are taking selfies on set (even while wearing a mask) can sting a bit.
That’s why this story is so inspiring.
I’m sharing London actor Dominic Ryan’s vulnerable tale that he too, was feeling impatient and frustrated and focusing on what wasn’t showing up for him.
He ended up making some very specific shifts that allowed the floodgates to open + offers to come his way,
Then the pandemic happened and everything stopped, but Domiminic found his way, yet again. Find out what he did during this time and how it led to booking a lead role in a film in Russia.
Dominic shares the exact mindset he was practicing when submitting his self-tape and why he knows it helped him to stand out among hundreds of other actors.
What did he do to book the lead in a film, off a self-tape, in the middle of a pandemic?
Watch the full story below + learn from Dominic so you can apply his insights to your life + career this week too….
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!"
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."
Community, iCarly, Good Luck Charlie
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."
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."
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!”
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."
