How To Profoundly Change Your Day

Here is a simple message that I hope will profoundly change your day, your week + maybe even your year.

Instead of judging + criticizing yourself when you’re feeling bad, (or distracting yourself from feeling anything) what if instead, you declared…..

No matter how I am feeling today, I am choosing to love whatever arises.

This way, any emotions you might have previously labeled as negative, you might now be able to see as just another opportunity for you to acknowledge, expand and love yourself even more.

How do you do that?

One Secret To Booking More Work

I’m keeping it short + sweet today, as I’m about to head to San Jose for my first ever Tony Robbins Live Event! Woohoo!

Yep, I’m gonna be walking on coals, dancing in the aisles, and gathering more inspiration + insights to share with you all!

It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years, but never made the time.

I booked the tickets months ago (yep, to leave smack in the middle of pilot season), and even invited my best gal pal to join me.

Not only did I end up booking a great top-of-show-recurring-guest-star gig…but I was able to shoot 2 episodes in the last 2 weeks and just found out that I have this coming week OFF!

I spoke up and gave the production office my out of town dates, but also told them I was willing to move things around a bit, if need be.

(Secretly, I was hoping I didn’t have to cancel on Tony Robbins.)

I kept holding the vision of my friend and I in San Jose, while also feeling immense gratitude for this wonderful job.

And, well, it all worked out.

So, what’s on your joy + fun list these days?

Is there something you are putting off because you don’t want to miss out on an acting opportunity?

How You Can Start Loving It All (Even If You Have The Post-Oscar Blues)

Did you watch the Oscars last night? No matter how it left you feeling, I’m hoping today’s post will uplift you.

Last night, my husband + I were invited to a black tie Oscar viewing party at The Hollywood Museum + I had the dream of wearing a gown from an amazing designer who creates handmade works of art.

Follow me here on instagram to see the pics.

And this morning, I’m back on the set, shooting another episode of a wonderful TV show I worked on last week + am feeling so grateful to do what I love, while also inspiring other actors along the way.

I want you to know that just 4 weeks ago, after having some great auditions and not really booking anything, I was feeling pretty down about how 2018 was going.

I wanted to feel better, but there were days, where I just couldn’t get out of my own funk + lift myself up. Can you relate?
Well, it got me thinking….

It seems we search for ways to feel good, and often run in fear of feeling anything less than what we deem as “positive emotions.”

But what if feeling all emotions were positive?unnamed
What if every emotion you feel throughout your day was here to awaken you?

And what if you could start loving it all?

We often spend our time judging, criticizing + labeling ourselves + our emotions + then adding to the story of what it all means.
What if, throughout your day, whatever thought or emotion was getting your attention, you could simply (more…)

Where To Focus When Nothing Is Going On…..

When there are slow patches in your career, do you go down the dark rabbit hole of worry + self-doubt?

Do you start obsessing about how you did on your last audition or wondering if you’ll ever get another one?

I know. I’ve been there.

But, when you shift your focus from what is not working to what’s going right in your life, things will begin to shift in your favor.

This year started off kinda quiet for me (well, except all of my free trainings for actors!), and it would have been easy for me to start ranting + raving….

“What are my reps doing?”
“Where are my auditions?”
“What am I missing out on?”

But asking myself those questions only produces answers (and feelings) rooted in lack and fear.

So instead, I focused all of my energy on helping other actors (like you) succeed, while getting into a mental head-space of radical appreciation for what was working in my life.

Why would this matter?

Within the next week, I ended up getting 3 amazing auditions, including a request to read for a different role on a project I had already been in for late last year.

(Something I didn’t even know would come back around, and could have easily spent a lot of wasted time examining what I might have not done “right” at that initial audition.)

And then, a wonderful booking came in (which I can’t give details about yet) and an invitation to attend a red carpet Oscar party.

And all from shifting my focus + how it made me feel when nothing was going on. That’s it.

Sounds simple, right? It Is, but many actors choose to take the struggling route of complaining + blaming + then berating themselves. Then they spend their days busying themselves with “doing more” from this space of lack.

What they don’t realize, is that it’s hamster wheel that just produces more of the same.

So, what if, no matter how things look right now, you told yourself this:

Instead of spending anytime criticizing or berating myself today,

I marvel at all I’ve done + who I’ve become along the way.

3 Steps To Take When You Feel Lost

Thirteen years ago, I was on the edge of a devastating breakup and day’s like Valentine’s Day would spark a sadness within me that would turn the rest of February into my least favorite month.

Especially since I had a timeline of how my life was going to go + clearly I was “off schedule,” since I was going to be married with kids by age 33.

When we feel lost in the woods and we can’t seem to find our way, it’s easy to think thinks will never change.

Time definitely gives you perspective, and as I look back now, this is what I wish I knew….

unnamed
Love wherever you are in your journey and know that it is all leading you to the light.

Because ultimately, life had even better plans for me.

And interestingly enough, it was after spending a year where I focused on giving myself everything I thought I needed a relationship to give to me, that an old friend (who I did a film with 10 years prior) came along and changed my life. (more…)

Start Your Day In This Way + Set Yourself Up For Success

If you feel like you’re going a mile a minute lately, it might be time to slow down.

What if what you really needed was not to ‘do more’ or ‘try harder’, but rather thank yourself for all you’ve done so far?

We swipe, scroll + search. But for what? What if all you needed in this moment is right here in front of you?

For me, this month is all about simplification + appreciation.

I’m even on a mission to simplify my weekly Morning Mindset emails for you!

Since everything you tell yourself is an affirmation (whether it’s good or bad), today, I’d like to help you slow down + affirm what is working.

Starting your day in a state of appreciation will help you set yourself up for success.

Why?

unnamed
Here are some Mindset Mantras to help you get there. Breathe deeply + declare the following to yourself silently or out loud…

Today, I practice radical appreciation.

As I think, I create. As I feel, I attract. As I imagine, I become.

Today, I use my power of focus to think, feel + imagine what I want,
and clear my mind of anything that no longer serves me.

Instead of spending anytime criticizing or berating myself today,
I marvel at all I’ve done + who I’ve become along the way.

I express unconditional love for my home, myself, my family,
my friends + my business relationships.

Today, I practice radical appreciation.

Want to dive even deeper + make it a daily practice?

Actors are enjoying profound shifts just from listening to my latest guided meditation, Radical Appreciation, which you can download for free here.

Here’s to a week of starting each day from a state of appreciation.

Leave a comment here on the blog + let me know what you are affirming this week.

Love + Gratitude,

15 Words To Shift How You Feel Right Now

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, and all the 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.

I am back to my ONE Morning Mindset email per week + 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…..
Express radical appreciation
Yes, I want you to express radical appreciation for all you have done + who you have become.

Because when you look back and marvel at yourself + your life, moving forward becomes easier.
Because when you see each rejection as just part of the path to something even better, not getting the job becomes no big deal.
Because when you get excited for another’s success, you are that much closer to aligning with your own.
Because when you choose a more positive thought, you light up in a different way.
Because when you look for things to appreciate in yourself + others, more things like it reveal themselves.

So, pause. Breathe. Put the phone down. And give thanks for your journey so far. No really. Do it right now.

“Today, I express radical appreciation for all I have done + who I have become.”

You have no idea how close you are to so many wonderful experiences.

Radical appreciation will not only speed up the process, but it will also make getting to where you want to go way more fun.

Here’s to a week of expressing radical appreciation.

Leave a comment below + let me know what you’re appreciating in your life today!

I am appreciating you!

Love + Gratitude,
– Wendy

44 Tips To Inspire, Uplift + Empower Actors

My holiday wish for you is that, in this moment. you realize you have so much to celebrate.

Today, I am celebrating the sacred space we share together as actors on this journey.

Today, I am looking back + celebrating the past year of Actor Inspiration.

It has been so rewarding knowing that whether I am feeling up or down, whether I booked the latest job or haven’t had an audition in weeks, I can share my heart, mind + soul with you here and it helps you on your journey.

In fact, one of my favorite comments to read after a blog post from an actor is, “This is exactly what I needed to hear today. I felt like you were talking directly to me.”

And in many ways, I am.  Doing this work each week has helped me to feel a deep connection to those on a creative path – heart, mind + soul.

Below is a visual review of what we’ve uncovered together this past year.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  It’s fun to play for a living, that’s for sure…but I had no idea how much this work of helping + inspiring other actors along the way, would end up helping + inspiring me.

Here’s to a year worth celebrating.

Feel free to leave a comment below + let me know which graphic speaks to you the most today.

Love + Gratitude,
Wendy

Sending lots of love from my home to yours, today + always.

How To Expand Your Happiness (10 Acts Of Mindfulness)

We are all on the quest for happiness.

In fact everything you want, is because you think you will be happier when you have it.
Whether it is a role, a relationship, a Range Rover, or a raving review of your work.
Deepak Chopra states,

”The purpose of life IS the expansion of happiness.
Happiness is the goal of every other goal.”

And yet, throughout your day, do you ever notice how easy it is to pick things apart (including yourself), notice what’s not working, what you haven’t done yet + fixate on complaining about the big + even the little things?

I know I have.

So if our quest is to expand our happiness, why do we spend so much time feeling unhappy?

To understand ourselves, we have to become consciously aware of our thoughts, words, + habits. Then, we must learn how to shift them.

You might not even be aware that complaining has become your default mode of operation.

So what can you do to shift from finding fault to expanding your happiness?

The first step is to become more mindful.

unnamed
The act of mindfulness will help train your subconscious mind to perceive + appreciate more of the amazing blessings, beauty + bounty that are in your life on a daily basis.
