The Answer To Your Question: Should I Leave Town?

Whenever I’m debating on doing something fun or taking a trip, I’m often reminded of my late father’s wise words: DO IT NOW.

For the actor, I’ll add…

DoItNow

Mark Twain summed it up pretty well too:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore. Dream. Discover”

So, is there something you long to do or somewhere you’d like to go that you are putting off because….

  • you could get cast in something
  • you don’t want to miss out on anything
  • you don’t have anyone to go wtih
  • you tell yourself you can’t afford it

All of these reasons may feel very true to you, but they are (more…)

What To Do When You Don’t Get The Part

I’ve been there.  I’ve auditioned for roles that have gone to someone younger, to someone older, to a more well-known actor, to an actor you’ve never heard of, to a blonde, to a brunette, to a guy, to another ethnicity, you name it, I’ve experienced it.    I’ve been released from “avails” + have seen lucrative campaigns come to an end.
 
Yes, an acting career is like a marathon-length rollercoaster ride.
 
The key is that every single time I’ve used what other actors might deem as a setback or a failure, to fuel me.  

Ultimately, I’ve used each experience (after the initial shock is over!) to deepen my trust in my own future, to believe that good always finds me, to lift myself up + to keep going. (Some days are easier than others, of course.)

But when I do this, things have always surprised me in the most miraculous ways and none of it was what I would have planned.
 
Ultimately, you have to….

TrustInTheFuturYoue
Of course the work of doing this is an inside job.  This internal work is part of your work as an actor. The ability to do this is what will get you to where you want to go.
 
So, now that we are 6 months into the year and you may have experienced some surprises +  some “setbacks”, dig deeper than ever before and really …. (more…)

10 Ways To Make Space For Success

Spring is the perfect time to clear the clutter + create space for what you really want to have happen in your acting career. When you get rid of anything that doesn’t serve a positive purpose in your life, you make room for things that will.

Clutter-clearing is modern-day alchemy.”
~ Denise Linn 

To invite more of anything into your life – acting success, a loving relationship, money or anything else, you need to make space for it to show up + for it to want to stay with you.  It’s almost like preparing for a guest to show up in your home that you can’t wait to have visit.

When you hold on too tightly you actually block the flow of abundance.
Here are 4 ways we block success:

  1. Sometimes we hold on too tightly to money, not allowing it to flow to + from us.
  2. Sometimes we hold on too tightly to things that we don’t need or love.
  3. Sometimes we hold on too tightly to beliefs that just aren’t true.
  4. Sometimes we hold on too tightly to relationships that aren’t supporting us in the way we would like. (personal or business)

Why? We hold on out of fear.  Fear of change.  Fear of the unknown.  Fear of abandonment.

“Clutter is a physical manifestation of fear
that cripples our ability to grow.”
~ H.G. Chissell

Remember, that when you have a desire, then you have the means to achieve it.
In fact, here’s an exciting realization: Your idea about what you want comes after the Universe has made it possible.

How To Retrain Your Brain for Auditions

How do you start your day when you have an audition?
Do you speak lovingly to yourself, or are you filled with worry, doubt or fear?

How you begin your day, is usually how you live your life.  Since every thought you think is creating your experience, it helps to be mindful of what you are telling yourself.  We are all using affirmations all day long, the question is, are you affirming the positive or the negative? You’ll know by the way you feel.

Choose To Change It
If you don’t like how you feel, change your thoughts! When you start to change your way of thinking, your inner voice will always react immediately with either fear or love. But what if you used a different criteria for responding to your habitual internal dialogue? Try this:

9 Steps To Turn Your Dream Into A Reality

A year ago, I visualized having a beautiful, newly redesigned website + online store for all of the guided meditations + visualizations I create for actors.  If you are reading this, then you are witnessing my dream turned into a reality.

I know from experience over the years that:

WhatYouCanVisualize

So, I visualized this site being a go-to-guide to help you align your mind. book more jobs + love your life.

I knew I wanted it to be beautiful, functional, mobile friendly + give tons of value to actors.

Since I received so many success stories from actors who said they were feeling more confident + booking more jobs since listening to my album, Creating Powerful Auditions , I visualized writing + recording a follow up album, Creating Powerful Performances.

I imagined actors using the new album to release performance anxiety + shine in the spotlight on every job with ease + effortlessness.  I imagined how amazing they would feel after shooting a tv show, working on a film or performing on stage.  The more I imagined how it would all feel, the easier the album flowed out of me.

I pictured a beautiful online store where actors, anywhere in the world, could simply download + instantly benefit from my guided meditations + visualizations.

I also visualized launching Spotlight: The Mindset of the Month Club to help actors cultivate a success mindset consistently by giving them my most powerful mind-shifting tools.  I wanted every actor to have the opportunity to try it for FREE for 30 days to experience the manifesting magic.

I am proud to say, that what I have visualized in my mind, is now a reality!

Here’s how I did it, and how you can apply these steps right now to your dream.

Why?  Because, it’s not about the lines.  It’s not about being perfect.
