If you started out 2021 hopeful, and 11 days in you’re feeling out of whack, I get it.
If you need a massive RESET this week and are craving tools + insights to help you stay more grounded, focused and inspired, even with all that is going on in the world, then do something for yourself today that will empower + uplift you.
Not sure what that is? Com join me The Free 5-Day Success Breakthrough Experience that kicks off today at 11am.
I’m teaching live (for free) for 5 days straight, helping actors to reflect, release, refocus, reignite + reimagine what is possible.
We can’t achieve our biggest dreams and become who we are destined to be without self-reflection + self-mastery.
What might happen if you started the year (or even this week) reflecting on what’s been standing in your way + determining what’s been weighing you down?
Most people would rather dive into “massive action,” than take a moment and self-reflect.
Join me LIVE today at 11am PST, for our first of 5 daily breakthrough free trainings.
Today you’ll learn….. Why most actors won’t succeed in 2021 (and how to not be one of them).Why taking massive action is actually not the first step as the New Year begins.How to create less struggle + more flow in your life + acting career. Thousands of actors from all over the world are buzzing with excitement, already feeling more hopeful + filled with possibility inside our private 5-Day event Facebook group, and I’d love to see you there too.
And I’m revealing why taking “massive action” towards your goals might not be the best way to begin the New Year, and why most actors won’t see results in 2021 (and how to not be one of them). And that’s just Day 1.
The 5-day event kicks off next Monday, January 11, so save your seat now + get some goodies from me before we even begin.
With the New Year is right around the corner, and we say goodbye to 2020 (amen!), have you been thinking about how you’re going to make 2021 your best year yet?
While you’re taking down the holiday decorations, I’d love to help you put a plan in place now.
This time last year I was invited to guest speak in Atlanta, New York, Toronto, Vancouver and London, and teach actors how to create real breakthroughs. (Loved meeting so many actors in this community in person!).
This January, I’m not traveling the world, so you’re invited to my house for 5 days! Well, virtually.
Each day, we’ll connect LIVE for a short but powerful breakthrough training where I’ll guide you to release what’s been blocking you, let go of limitations, gain clarity, eliminate overwhelm + align with what you really want in 2021. And it’s totally free!
And to kick things off, I’m going to share why “muscling” to make your dreams come true in 2021 is NOT the way to begin…
I’m also gonna walk you through a simple process to help you unload the weight off your shoulders (thanks 2020!) and begin the New Year feeling empowered, inspired and ready to do what’s calling you, not what you feel you “should do” to “make it happen.”
I’ve put together 5 days of powerful + immersive breakthrough lessons that I know will be so helpful for you, no matter what stage of your acting career you are in + no matter where you live in the world.
So, shall I put you on the guest list to get insider tips + actionable strategies to kick off the New Year?
This past Saturday was #WorldMentalHealthDay. Honestly, I think mental health should be celebrated every day and not something we shine a spotlight on just once a year.
In fact, everything I write + create for actors is always done with the intention of helping you achieve greater mental health, inner peace + ultimate fulfillment on the way to achieving all of your dreams.
Ok, so I know this year has been a roller-coaster ride for all of us in different ways.
Maybe you’ve felt great one day, and been in a funk the next?
Perhaps you’ve gone from feeling productive to procrastinating…in a matter of minutes?
I get it and I’ve been there. I’ve definitely had up and down moments, days + weeks this year. Throw in political debates, social injustices + 8 months of a global pandemic, and well, it makes sense that our mental health has been challenged + tested.
But here’s what I’ve noticed, especially with all of the turmoil + uncertainty going on in the world…
If you are waiting for the outer conditions to change to determine how you’re going to feel on a daily basis, you will always feel powerless, because there is always going to be a condition that doesn’t please you.
When you begin the day reacting and responding to the news or social media, it’s easy to then turn against yourself (or even those around you) and focus on how you’re somehow failing or worry about what you haven’t accomplished yet.
So how do you take your own personal power back?
How do you boost your mood + create a compelling future?
Remind yourself that no matter what happened yesterday, last week or last month….
“What we do today is what matters most.” – Buddha
So, this is your chance to begin again, and use this week to reset, recharge + renew your own commitment to your own mental health.
What has been working for me this past week is by beginning the day (more…)
Booking off a self-tape. Do you believe that can happen?
Or do you have thoughts like, “I’m better in the room” or “They’ll never watch this anyway.”
That’s exactly what one of my students, Dominic Ryan, a London based actor, used to think too. He told me this recently, “I was never a fan of self-tapes, as I felt my true personality never came across like it did in the room.”
So what shifted for Dominic? I share it in a quick video here, as well as the exact tool he used (and how you can get it for free) to get in the zone, confidently prepare a self-tape audition in London + book a feature film…that shoots in Russia!
In fact, I’ll send you this “secret self-tape audition weapon” for free when you register for my upcoming brand-new FREE LIVE masterclass happening this week!
I did something that scared me last month + I can’t stop thinking about it.
I did a free LIVE virtual training (perhaps you were there?), and I had to learn an entirely new software system to pull it off.
And yes, there was a lot of self-doubt + some serious ugly cry moments trying to quickly learn the new technology. Have you had those moments too lately? Maybe with all of the self-taping?
But what I also learned was that I didn’t have to be perfect, I just had to be present. And guess what? It absolutely wasn’t perfect, but I know that’s also what made my live training so amazing.
To connect with each other in REAL TIME – LIVE was electric, and I’m still buzzing from it.
To realize I can show up for this amazing community of actors from all over the world, and be vulnerable and authentic is honestly what makes my heart sing.
(And let’s not forget, vulnerability + authenticity is also what makes you a compelling actor).
I’ve also been hearing from actors everywhere that you’ve been feeling off your game lately, questioning your self-tape submissions and wondering how you’ll deliver your best work on the job in our “new normal…(or all of the above),
I hear you + I decided to do something about it.
I just put together a BRAND-NEW FREE MASTERCLASS and am going to teach it to you LIVE in August.
I’m going to walk you through a simple + proven process to uplevel your self-tapes, book more jobs + shine under pressure.
I can’t wait to share my empowering methods + easy-to-implement tools that have helped countless actors (at every level + in every market) book more work in TV, Film, VO, Commercials, Theater. (yes, even in a global pandemic).
You’ll walk away feeling empowered, encouraged + confident in your ability to navigate the road ahead, deliver your best auditions + bring your best self to the job. (Even when everyone around you is (more…)
Best selling author + leadership expert John Maxwell states, “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
In other words, big results come from small, committed daily actions.
But what about right now, in the middle of a pandemic, when everything feels…off?
Well, next weekend, you’re invited to attend a free LIVE virtual training, where I am going to dive deep into this topic + share fresh perspectives, true stories, tangible tools and easy action steps that you can implement immediately (yes even right now, in the midst of the uncertainty in the world + in our industry).
Secure your seat to join me LIVE (for free from anywhere in the world) and learn:
Tonite, nomination-round voting closes for the 2020 Emmy® Awards.
I am honored to be up For Your Emmy® Consideration as “Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series” for my work on Atypical this season. What an amazing ride it has been doing this show. Thank you for all of the shoutouts + sweet support.
I know you’re reading this blog because you want insights, inspiration + tangible tools to help you thrive daily in your life and acting career.
What I love (as much as reaching new milestones in my own career), is helping other actors to shine + succeed as well.
When I know that something I have learned on my own journey can help you skip years of struggle + frustration, I get excited to share it.
In fact, I have created a success mindset routine and daily practice, that has not only helped me make my living solely from acting for over 2 decades (including 80 IMDb credits, currently enjoying my 3rd year recurring on Atypical (Netflix) + the recent For Your Emmy® Consideration status), but it’s also the same routine that has now helped countless actors build careers while navigating the ups + downs of actor life (yes, even amidst a global pandemic).
And I’ve decided to break down the exact method I’ve used to create momentum, map it out in a brand-new free training and teach it LIVE online + you’re invited!
Have you been feeling off your game lately or finding it hard to focus? I get it.
What usually stops us from moving forward on any given day might feel like external circumstances, but ultimately it all begins within.
It’s understandable that in times of uncertainty, you might wake up in the morning and one of the following is going on in your mind.
You’re filled with fear.
You’re failing to focus.
You’re fueled by false beliefs.
Why? The mind is rooted in limitation + fear.
But the heart is rooted in expansion + love.
When we are born, we are all heart + pure love, but as we get older, we start operating from the mind.
Over time, that limited mind voice gets louder and the heart voice becomes a whisper we almost can’t hear.
You want to create momentum in your life or your career, but all too often, your action gets drowned out by mental logic, other’s opinions + historical thinking about how it’s gone for you in the past.
That is what stops you. It’s what stops all of us from moving forward.
I’ll show you how it works….and you can turn up the volume of the heart today.
Click the video below + learn 9 ways your limited mind is keeping you stuck, and what your expanded heart really wants you to know. (more…)
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
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!”
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."
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."
