A short and sweet reminder that you are so much more than your career and your latest credits.
You play many roles in your life + they are all meaningful and valuable. “Actor” is only one of those roles, just as “what you’ve done” in your career this year is only one facet of the multi-faceted diamond that is you.
So whether you print this out + tape it to your bathroom mirror or screenshot the graphic + save it to your phone, allow it to serve as a loving guide to end the year knowing that not only are you enough exactly as you are right now, but that you are a precious gift.
Treat yourself this way as the year comes to a close + you will start the New Year off in the right direction.
Pause and read this anytime you feel your inner critic try to define you, judge you or criticize you…
Here’s to a holiday season where you fill yourself up first with (more…)
I know this time of year can get busy + stressful. So I’m keeping it short + sweet today.
If you find yourself cranky, irritable, sad, or overwhelmed by all you have to do (or all you feel you haven’t done yet), here is my Holiday De-Stress List.
You’ll be amazed at what picking one thing on this list will do for your mental + emotional state. Keep in mind, this isn’t about covering up your feelings with a happy face sticker, or stuffing down your emotions with extra slices of pie.
It’s about taking the time to slow down + actually feel your feelings: acknowledge them, release them + let them be heard. (more…)
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.
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.
In the last decade…
I have created…
I am most proud of…
I am most grateful for…
have become more…
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…)
My heart is so full today. Over the weekend, I sat down face to face with 20 amazing actors in LA and had the privilege of interviewing them individually + hearing their stories of radical transformation.
To sit across from these beautiful souls in such an intimate setting and have them tell me that I’ve helped change their lives, their careers, their relationships, their confidence, their abundance, their entire world, and how they now feel about themselves was a gift that moved me to tears over and over again (even as I recall it now).
Where did it all begin? They attended my empowering free masterclass, where I walked them through the 5 steps to creating real success breakthroughs in their lives + careers.
I realize (especially in this digital age) that there is nothing like connecting face to face.
Which is why I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to cities all over the world to share my uplifting + inspiring Live Masterclass.
During each stop on my city tour, I’ll walk you through the exact steps that I took to go from feeling lost in my career to booking over 75 TV + Film credits, over 100 commercials + thousands of voice-overs (the same steps now used by actors who are booking leads in films, working on hit TV shows + winning awards, while enjoying more happiness in their personal lives, too).
And I’m coming with special gifts, I know you’re going to love.
So let’s meet up this fall! These events will fill up fast, so save your seat now + mark your calendar. (more…)
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 itemsrecommended 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…. 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…)
It’s been an amazing journey (and an emotional roller coaster ride, really) since the beginning of the year.
Today, I thought I’d walk back through the ups and downs of the last six months, and share the lessons I’ve learned along the way with you.
The most recent one came (as it often does), through my 7-year-old son.
When I was about to leave the house last week, all dressed up to go to a “For Your Emmy® Consideration” event + screening, featuring my work on Atypical (Netflix), he took one look at me from head to toe and said, “You’ve already won, Mommy.”
The smile on his face. The sound of his voice. The love in his heart. The wise words that he shared. All of it, hit me right in the heart.
It stopped me in my tracks, because he was right, on so many levels.
Here’s a quick glimpse back at some ups and downs of the last 6 months (and why you can begin today feeling that you’ve already won, too). (more…)
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."
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 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."
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!"
