We all want the conditions to change to bring us happiness. If we could only book the job, find the mate, win the Oscar….then, we’d feel better.
At the root of all that is feeling like somehow we are not enough, or worthy or valuable without the external condition we want being met.
I get it. I’ve been there. Heck, I was there 2 weeks ago when 2 auditions in one day turned into….booking neither.
We put our hearts + souls into every audition, and when it doesn’t turn into a booking, it can chip away at who we think we are.
Now, I love that I get to play for a living, and I was proud of the work I did in both of those auditions, but it got me thinking about how much we define ourselves by whether or not we book the job + how dangerous that can be to our self-esteem.
So, my #MondayMotivation is for you to begin the week knowing this…
Whether you booked a job this month (or year) or not.
Even if you had 5 auditions with no callbacks.
Even if you have friends whose lives look perfect on the outside.
Even if you’re going through a rough time.
Even if you just got your heart broken.
Even if you don’t know how you’re going to pay your rent.
Even if you’re feeling sad.
Even if you’re feeling frustrated.
Even if your big dreams haven’t come true yet.
Even if you wonder how they ever will.
Please know, that your happiness, doesn’t lie in the next “booking.”
Sure, it’s fun to book the job, but don’t spend your days between now + then waiting to be happy, to feel like you’re enough, to feel worthy or to feel valuable.
Your happiness and all those feelings are a gift you can give yourself TODAY.
No matter where you are in your life or career (even if it’s not quite where you thought you would be by now), please breathe this in…
Sometimes it’s the smallest shift that can produce the biggest results.
I see it every day with the hundreds of amazing actors I have the privilege of mentoring in my course + in my private coaching community and I always marvel at how easily + quickly the inner breakthroughs invite in the outer breakthroughs.
If you’ve been putting in a lot of effort this year + already feeling exhausted, I want to help remind you of who you really are + encourage you to pause today, let go of limitation + breathe in the feelings of abundance.
You are abundant at your core. Everything about you is abundant.
From the cells in your body to the neural pathways in your brain, to the taste buds on your tongue, you are made up of pure abundance.
You are worthy of your biggest dreams + you have the ability to magnetize what you want towards you.
It all begins with your emotions. since what you feel, you attract + what you imagine, you become.
Anything you were taught growing up about money or success that isn’t in alignment with pure + total abundance, you can take a moment, to simply breathe, release + let go of it all now.
Do this quick breathing + expansion exercise with me now… (more…)
I want to express a heartfelt THANK YOU for coming along with me in January as I shared my free videos, my free online masterclass, my multi-city live events and all the exciting news about my Success Breakthrough Workshop.
Whether you were moved by what I shared in the free trainings or decided to dive deeper with me in the course, I am grateful for you.
Today, I want to share a simple message that when you stop + take it in, will profoundly shift how you feel.
As actors + creative people, I know this to be true for many of us….
It’s so easy to look ahead + wish we were further along.
It’s so easy to let that job that you didn’t book, even though you rocked the audition, get you down.
It’s so easy to scroll through Instagram + see everyone’s best version of their life + feel like you’re missing out on something.
It’s so easy to let negative thoughts run your day + effect how you treat others.
It’s so easy to find fault within ourselves + those we love the most.
But today, I want you to pause. Today, I want you to take a moment and do this….. Yes, I want you to express radical appreciation for all you have done + who you have become. (more…)
I’m excited to reveal “How To Radically Transform Your Acting Career.”
But first 3 quick announcements, as the past 3 weeks have been mind-blowing to watch so many actors jump start their breakthrough year + shed all kinds of limitations inside my “Virtual Party” of free online trainings. Amazing!
I’m going to keep it simple today, as I’ve spent the last 3 weeks 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 know to be true: 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,
But what hundreds of actors uncovered in myFree Video Series, was that the actual act of blaming was the thing that was not only keeping them in victim mode, but was also the very thing that was keeping them stuck.
Once you realize that the #1 factor that determines your success, (more…)
Before I share the one word that can massively change your results in 2019, I have to say, I’ve been so blown away by the HUGE shifts hundreds of actors are making after watching my Free Video Series
“I watched all 3 videos, did the work + IN ONE WEEK, I got 3 new agent meetings, 5 auditions, including one for the lead in a Broadway musical, an unexpected residual check in the mail, re-edited my reel + recorded my VO demo (which I had been procrastinating on for over 2 years!). Wow! Seeing you get emotional is so inspiring because it really shows how what you are teaching other actors has changed your life. It’s changed mine too.” – Julie C.
“Wendy, your words are a tremendous reminder to me of what I believe to be true, but sometimes forget. I am so inspired by how you teach. Thank you!” – Joe W.
“Your free videos are giving me goosebumps. Thank you for the inspiration, different perspective + generosity of spirit. It has been empowering + liberating.” – Sue C.
In fact, this video is part of a brand new free 3-Part Training Series I put together for you called Success Breakthrough Secrets For Actors, where in the next 7 days, I will guide you to release whatever is blocking you, let go of limitation + align with what you REALLY want in 2019.
I’m giving you insider tips + actionable strategies to make this your best year yet
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 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."
Community, iCarly, Good Luck Charlie
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!"
