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,

– Wendy

My brand-new audio “Radical Appreciation” is totally free this month, with a 30 day free trial to my Spotlight Club.

One actress said after listening just once, “ I felt myself bursting with love and had tears in my eyes by the end! 

And it’s totally free in February.  Kind of a win-win-win if you ask me.

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.

Here are 10 acts of mindfulness to get you started…. (more…)

A Simple Method For Getting Unstuck

You might not want to hear it, but complaining is a chronic habit that ultimately keeps you stuck.

Have you ever tried to go through your entire day + not make one complaint? It’s not easy, right?

You might not even be aware of how often you complain, because it’s become so habitual. For many of us, complaining has become our standard mode of operation.

We complain the audition is taking too long.
We complain about the traffic.
We complain about the line at the grocery store.

Then we get together with our friends and when they start to complain, we chime in easily + add to it, until everyone is bonding over a big-warm-complaint-bonfire. (And I can’t say I haven’t been there. I have.)

So, here’s one simple way to get unstuck.

Become mindful of how often you complain + stop yourself in your tracks.

In fact, this is my SPECIAL INVITATION to have you join me in making November a complaint free month.

How do you do it?

How To Collect The “No’s” + Turn Them Into “Yes.” (My personal story of 10 agents turning me down.)

Have you been facing tons of rejection lately? Have you allowed it to devastate you? You’re not alone.

As actors, collecting the “no’s” should be part of our job description, and yet no one really teaches us how to do that without getting defeated.

Whether it’s not booking the job, not getting the callback or not getting signed by an agent, all of the rejection can chip away at your confidence.

It’s your ability to not allow any of these experiences to turn into a negative belief about yourself that really is the key.
unnamed
That really is it. It’s how you handle all the rejection, without letting it devastate you, define you or defeat you that will ultimately determine your success.

So don’t take one experience of rejection and allow it to define who you are + what will or won’t happen in your career.

Your thoughts become beliefs, and you get to (more…)

The Daily Practice That Will Make You More Productive

If looping thoughts tend to run your day, and you often feel overwhelmed or overworked, you’re not alone.

I just got back from a family vacation + found myself feeling this way the very next day!

When resistance shows up like this, keep in mind that it’s really just your ego trying to run the show, figure it all out ahead of time and keep you mentally busy.

So what’s a multi-tasking actor to do?

It’s at moments like this, when getting still will actually help you become more productive.

It almost seems illogical to stop what you’re doing, especially if your to-do-list is a mile long (like mine often is).

But, I’ve been amazed at the solutions, creativity + miracles that begin to appear when you take a break, quiet the mind + let go of how you think it all should go.

unnamed
Yes, believe it or not, as you make finding stillness a daily practice: Solutions will appear. Creativity will soar. Miracles will happen.

As you find stillness, you’ll begin to feel the layers of physical, mental and emotional resistance peel away + dissolve.

Here are some helpful mindset mantras to get you started…. (more…)

How to Interrupt Your Negative Patterns + Find Happiness

Most of us identify ourselves and who we are through our daily thoughts.

Yet, studies show that these daily thoughts are 80% negative and 95% repetitive.

So, ultimately, we are repeating negative thoughts daily, unless we become consciously aware and interrupt the pattern…

…unless we find stillness, let go and quiet the mind.

unnamed
But the ego doesn’t want you to get still, to trust or to let go.
(Get still, trust + let go anyway.)

The ego wants to control. And it does so by cleverly convincing you that you are (more…)

How To Restore Your Sanity + Reignite Your Creativity

I’m keeping it short and sweet today, as I’m off on another trip with my family.

My mantra lately has been: I’ll never regret that I went on too many vacations (especially while my young boys still want to hang out with me).

But as we approach the last 3 months of the year (where did the time go?!), I hope you’ll schedule in some quiet time for yourself.

I used to feel guilty about doing “nothing,” much less taking more than one vacation a year! (I had tons of actor-FOMO)

I used to go-go-go 24/7, often feeling overwhelmed by all I was doing and even resentful of those who were taking a break. (I’m sure I was just jealous that they knew how to!)

But now I’ve learned that, when you can find stillness, you ignite the fuel to recharge your batteries, restore your sanity, and even reignite your creativity.

unnamed
So I’m here to encourage you to sleep in, go for a walk, grab some tea or a cozy blanket and write in a journal, read a good book or listen to a guided meditation.

Eckhart Tolle says, “You are never more essentially yourself than when you are still.”

Do whatever you need to do to t (more…)

9 Words To Help You Turn Rejection Into Opportunity

Those days where you do your best work and don’t book the job (or even get a callback) can be frustrating for many actors.

When this happen over and over again, it can be debilitating.  Self-doubt sets in.  You walk in to your next audition and (often unconsciously) try harder, and the rejection cycle continues.

But it is in those challenging moments, where your ego tries to convince you that you are somehow not enough or that you need to change or fix something about your appearance, instead I invite you to dig deeper and respond to it all with love.

Here are 9 words to help you turn rejection into opportunity.

Take a deep breath in today and know that….
