I sometimes think letting go is the hardest part of what we do as actors.
Letting go of an audition when you know you did your best and you hear nothing.
Letting go of a callback when you made them laugh but you don’t book the job.
Letting go of how you think the scene should go, so you can be present in the moment.
Letting go of how you think your career should go, so you can be open to what’s meant for you.
Then, there’s letting go in life. This past week we had to let go of our beautiful (more…)
You may have heard (or seen) that Will Smith bungee jumped out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on his 50th birthday. Just before jumping he said, “Anytime I’m scared of something, I feel compelled to attack it.”
His words and actions have always inspire me.
Doing the things that have scared me over the years have definitely expanded my life in wonderful ways.
One of my favorite truth bombs he shared was this: You can’t experience the joy that is intended for you in life if you don’t go. Don’t hesitate. Commit. So what gets in most people’s way of going for the life (and career) that they want? (more…)
I’m recurring on my 2nd season of Netflix’s Atypical (which you can start binge-watching now).
I remember auditioning for this role in Season 1, and even though the waiting room was filled with all different types, I didn’t let it effect my audition.
I felt grounded, connected, ready to play + that confidence definitely helped me to book the job.
But this wasn’t always the case.
I remember so many times when I used to sabotage myself in the waiting room or let my audition nerves get the best of me.
I remember walking into a callback filled with 18 executives, (when I thought there would only be 3 people in the room), (more…)
When I heard Michelle Lulic manifested some incredible career goals in a little over a month, I had to find out what she was doing differently.
I know that career transformation always begins with a change in your inner world (even though most actors like to think it begins with a change in agents).
When I connected with Michelle to hear her inspiring story, I was so thrilled to discover that it was returning to The Spotlight Club (my one-of-a-kind monthly membership for actors), that gave her the mindset tools, coaching, confidence + clarity she needed.
Since returning to The Spotlight Club, so many have things have shifted for me. I took Wendy’s awesome advice from our private Facebook Live Q+A, and I ended up booking a lead role in an episode of a new show. Thank you, Wendy! – Michelle Lulic
When I can offer insight, inspiration (and powerful guided meditations) to another actor + not only help them feel better, but book bigger + better roles, then I have fulfilled part of my purpose here on planet earth.
Here’s how Michelle used letting go to book her latest lead role:
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."
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 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."
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."
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."
