The 2 Biggest Factors That Keep You From Your Dreams

    The two biggest factors that keep you from your dreams might actually surprise you.

    They are…needing + wanting.

    The definitions of want + need actually imply a lack of something deemed necessary, and are at the opposite energetic spectrum of feeling fulfilled + satisfied.

    So, it might be time to take a closer look at what you are “needing + wanting” and ask yourself “Why does this matter so much to me?”

    If you want to get somewhere in your career because you need it to define:

    • your value
    • your worth
    • your importance
    • or that you “really matter…”

    Then what you want will continue to elude you.  Why?

    This kind of thinking actually puts you in a state of lack – needing some outer circumstance to give you the abundance you seek.

    The reality is that it actually works the other way around.

    Best selling author Abraham-Hicks states it so simply + yet profoundly with these seven words…..

    Until It Doesn't Matter
    Did you really get that? Until it doesn’t matter, it can’t be.So in order to acquire anything in the physical world, (more…)

    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…

    -30
    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 my Free 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…)

    5 Tips On How To Finish The Year Strong

    With less than 80 days to go in 2019, (79 to be exact), I want to help you finish the year strong.

    If you’ve been struggling in any way lately, just know that you are not alone, that we all have down days + that things can change so quickly (especially in this business)!

    If you want to make a massive shift before the end of the year, here are a few things you can do.

    1) Come see me in person at my complimentary LIVE masterclass.

    In under 90 minutes, I will teach you how to create bigger results with far less effort + let go of all the struggle. To witness the amazing shifts that actors have when they come see me live, is mind-blowing.

    Here’s what one actress (and Television Academy member) had to say after seeing me live:
    “Attending Wendy’s Live Masterclass delivered a much needed peace, freedom + happiness that I can’t even begin to describe, plus I now have a roadmap for creating real breakthroughs,”

    So, if you do one thing before the end of the year, commit to saving your seat for my free masterclass.

    I only do these free live workshops once a year + they are filling up fast.

    2) List your wins (from the last decade).

    Not only are we closing out another year, but another decade is ending. Crazy, right?

    Do you remember where were you in October 2009? Do you realize how far you’ve come since then?

    Don’t wait until New Year’s Eve to take inventory on it all. Why not take a moment today + think back on your life and career since that time + write out your wins?

    Here are some prompts if you need help.

    unnamed-27
    In the last decade…

    1. I have created…
    2. I am most proud of…
    3. I am most grateful for…
    4. have become more…
    5. I have learned…

    When you really stop to focus on all you have done (and who you’ve become along the way), this particular day in October will feel less dire to you. When you can relax about it all and shift your focus, you are not only getting out of your own way, but inviting in more good things to celebrate. (more…)

    The Emmys: If You Got There Will It Be Enough?

    I hope you watched the Emmy’s last night + were inspired in some way. I sure was.  How about Michelle Williams’ speech!? Amazing!

    But just in case it left you feeling jealous, frustrated or even thinking, “I’ll never get there…,” today’s message is for you.

    First of all, I’d like to encourage you right now to get the “I’ll never get there” thought out of your head.

    It’s actually just your ego trying to keep you small + play it safe.

    You absolutely can get there, but it will require you to dream bigger, let go of limitation + get out of your comfort zone.

    I talk about this and my own Emmy® 2019 journey here:
    What’s Really Getting In Your Way….(And How Let Go + Fly)

    If you haven’t heard, earlier this year I was lucky enough to be up “For Your Emmy® Consideration as Outstanding Guest Star In A Comedy Series” for my work on Atypical (Netflix).

    And on the voting ballot, my name was listed (in alphabetical order) like this…

    Cate Blanchett
    Wendy Braun
    Connie Britton

    unnamed-16

    OMG. That was a day I will never forget,

    I cried happy tears at the sight of this, because in that moment I knew that no matter what happens, I had already won.

    If you want to read the life lessons I learned during Emmy FYC Season, read this:
    You’ve Already Won! (And Other Life Lessons From My Emmy® 2019 FYC Journey)

    What you may not know, is that Cate, Connie and I didn’t make it on to the final ballot.

    I’m not sure how those lovely + talented actresses handled it, but I didn’t shed one tear that day, because I have diligently practiced (and continue to do so) not letting any of this define my value + worth.

    It wasn’t always this way, but I now realize that using any part of this business as a measure of who you are is not only dangerous, but ultimately unfulfilling.

    I recently read this quote from Demi Moore’s upcoming new memoir, Inside Out, in a NY Times article and it resonated so deeply with me.  Hope it helps you too.

    unnamed-17
    “If you carry a well of shame + unresolved trauma inside of you, no amount of money, no measure of success or celebrity can fill it.  Using success in this business as a measure of your value, worth, or self-esteem, will not only rob you of your happiness every single time.” – Demi Moore.

    Why is this so true? Because this business is not here to heal you. That deep inner work you have to do yourself.

    And if you don’t, no matter what you achieve, your ego will tell you, (more…)

    Managing Your Sanity + Trusting The Process: Navigating #Actorlife

    When you’re ambitious + hard working, and things aren’t showing up exactly as you’d like, when you’d like, it can be frustrating.

    Or when you’ve just finished working on a job + all of a sudden there’s a slow period, it’s easy to get caught up in wondering. “What’s next?”

    Or when you audition for something, and you’re “pinned” or put on “watch + advise,” end up getting released, and you have to go back to trusting that something even better is on it’s way. (This was me a few weeks ago).

    In fact, today I want to share with you what’s gone on in the last month inside my own journey navigating #actorlife + how I’ve had to practice trusting the process.
    unnamed-7
    Last month, I auditioned for a recurring guest-star role on a cool drama. My audition felt great, the casting director loved it, and I thought certainly, I’d have to mark my calendar for this 4 episode arc that would shoot in Atlanta.

    5 Morning Success Habits (You Can Do In Under An Hour)

    I’ve been committing to a set of daily morning success habits lately that have really helped me to feel good, stay inspired and get more done in less time.

    We all have the same 24 hours in a day, but since your morning habits effect your whole day, see if you can implement a new one this week.

    Try it for 21 days + see how you feel.

    These are my top 5, and are all designed to help you begin your day in a proactive, positive + productive way.

    1. Make Your Bed. (5 minutes)

    Making your bed sets the tone for your entire day. When you take a few minutes + make your bed, you are beginning the day already accomplishing something and you are also taking a mindful moment to train your brain that the little things matter + your living space is important.

    Sure, it’s easy to say, “It’s just going to get unmade later,” but that’s kind of like saying , “Why wash the dishes, if they’re just going to get dirty again?”

    I’ve taught me children (my youngest one still has his moments of “it’s just going to get unmade later). to take pride in their rooms and that making their bed is part of taking care of their things, starting the day off right + feeling good about what they did themselves.

    When we start the day with our bed made, we can use this mindset towards completing other tasks where the same dilemma arises, and we tell ourselves, this would be “easy to do or easy to blow off.”

    As Nike says, just do it.

    2. Drink Something Healthy (10 minutes)

    We’ve had a juicer for years that has been gathering dust, but once I started reading all about @CeleryJuiceBenefits from the Medical Medium, and saw all the ways people healed all kinds of things on his Instagram Stories, I was in.

    So I dusted off the juicer + now I make 16oz of celery juice a daily habit. (it’s been 45 days so far!).

    Whether you do celery juice or some lemon with water, make your morning beverage (before your coffee) something that will flush toxins from your system + hydrate you.

    You’ll be amazed at how easily this will become a habit that effects the rest of your day (and the well-being of your body + mind).

    3. Write In A Journal (10 minutes)

    Instead of checking social media, email + looking at the twitter news feed, check in with yourself first.

    This has become a habit that has helped me so much lately.

    Instead of checking “out” by diving deep into my phone, I like to begin each by checking “inward” first.

    The Best Weapon Against Your Challenges

    I hope you’ve been enjoying July! (Whether it’s summer or winter where you live, I love connecting with actors all over the world each week).

    That is the beauty of modern technology.

    On a side note: I’m not sure how I missed feeling 2 earthquakes in one weekend, but I hope all of my Southern California readers are all okay.

    Make sure you have shoes near your bed, flashlights and a battery powered transit radio as the very basics of your earthquake preparedness kit.  Here is a full list of items recommended by the Red Cross. 

    I just learned how to turn the gas off and the water main off at our house, just in case.  Do you know how to do these things? Make sure you do.

    I moved here 5 days before the Northridge Earthquake in 1994, and that one shocked me to my core. (So maybe that’s why the Universe made sure I was swinging on a swing with my kids this time around).

    Whether it’s a dealing with a natural disaster or even dealing with the daily life of being an actor, I know this to be true….
    unnamed-8
    No matter where you live, I hope you’ve also been taking time to pause this month, to get outside + enjoy nature, without checking your phone.

    With modern technology at our fingertips all day long + requests coming at us from all angles, giving ourselves permission to pause, to take a break, as well as not check social media or email one more time, can be challenging.

    Our brains inherently want to remain active + in charge, and not relinquish control.

    But when we choose to pause, we not only give our brains a rest, but we are also  (more…)

    Expand To New Heights (Here’s How It Begins)

    Can you believe we are 5 months in to 2019?  How are things going for you?  Are you staying on track with the goals or intentions you created in January?

    I’m hoping this will help reignite your fire today.

    I choose a word each year that serves as the intention behind my thoughts, beliefs + actions, since I know it is our daily habits that create our success.

    My word has been expansion.
     
    To expand what I think is possible.
    To expand what I think I can do.
    To expand what I think I deserve.
    To expand how I can help others.
    To expand how I can serve.
    To expand how I can give.

    I invite you to do the same…

    unnamed-16
    So often we want to expand into something bigger or better in our lives + careers, but something gets in the way.

    3 Steps To Getting Better Results

    Ever feel like this? Exhausted, not booking, a bit lost or unsure, and maybe heading down a dark rabbit hole of negative thinking…

    Even though you know better?
    Even though you’re trying to stay positive?
    Even though you’re trying keep the faith?

    Does it seem like the more you try to do that, the more you feel like you are entering a dark tunnel without the light?

    This was exactly the way one of my students admitted to feeling recently + she was actually thrilled to find out she wasn’t alone.

    Not only did other actors feel this way, I told her that she basically described my February!

    Yes, that’s right. I have plenty of down days too.

    I had a month of great auditions + no bookings. I was definitely wondering, “where’s mine?”

    I had assumed that the show I had been recurring on (Atypical on Netflix) was back in production, but I hadn’t heard anything about returning for another season.

    And when things aren’t showing up the way you’d like, that dark hole can feel like it goes on forever, right?

    So what do you do?

    I’m all for feeling your feelings + going through them, instead of slapping a smiley face sticker over your pain.

    So just know that when you are feeling down, you’re not alone. Reach out + talk to a friend. (Most likely an actor you know is feeling the same way).

    Then, remind yourself that tomorrow is a new day + treat it as a blank white canvas.

    When you shift your focus, it will help shift how you feel, and ultimately effect what you do.

    And as you take a new action, from a better feeling place, the light in that dark tunnel will begin to appear.
