How To Rise Higher

I wanted to share with you the story that inspired my latest guided meditation creation, “Rising Higher.” 

The Lesson Of The Eagle And The Crow

The only bird that dares to peck an eagle is the crow. 

The crow sits on the eagles back and bites his neck. 

The eagle does not respond, nor fight with the crow; it does not spend time or energy on the crow. 

Instead he just opens its wings and begins to rise higher in the heavens. 

The higher the flight, the harder it is for the crow to breathe and eventually the crow falls off due to a lack of oxygen.

Learn from the eagle and don’t fight the crows, just keep ascending. 

They might be along for the ride but they’ll soon fall off. 

Do not allow yourself to succumb to the distractions….keep your focus on the things above and continue rising!!
– Solara

This speaks to me so much in our journey as actors.  

Yes, there will be all kinds of crows – from other opinions, to our own raging inner critic, but the key is to know how to rise higher on a daily basis, no matter the external or internal noise.

To rise higher, to savor more, to feel more fulfilled at the highest level in all areas of your life + career, will require you to quiet (and then elevate) your mind.

This takes awareness, willingness, and moment by moment mindfulness, but it is through quieting the mind first, that we can then rise higher.

When you can notice what you’re focusing on and how it’s feeling, you can then choose to shift that focus. (more…)

How To Really Succeed in 2021….

I’m heading to a fitting today and getting ready to shoot my 4th season of Netflix’s Atypical this week.  I am beyond grateful to begin the year this way.

My heart is full.  Not only because I’m heading back to the set, but because I’ve uplifted, inspired + empowered thousands of actors all over the world this month.

And as January comes to a close, I want to remind you of two things:

1) You are worthy of your dreams.  Your biggest dreams.

2) Discounted Enrollment for The Success Breakthrough Workshop ends TONIGHT.

Find out more about the course that actors are calling “Powerful. Priceless. Vital to the actor’s soul.

I know you have big dreams and a big heart, otherwise you would not have found your way to me.  I also know that sometimes big dreams can feel intimidating or even scary.

But I don’t want you to allow fear to stop you this year.

For years, I’ve been focused on taking bold actions (even when they scare me) while also allowing my vulnerability to be a strength, not a weakness.

Many of you saw that in action if you joined me in the 5-Day Success Breakthrough Experience or attended a Free Masterclass this month. (Perhaps you got teary-eyed along with me?)

But speaking of fear, here’s something you should know….

Yes, who you are meant to become is on the other side of your fear.

How do you create big success in 2021?  Don’t let fear stop you from taking bold action.

I let fear stop me, I definitely wouldn’t have…

  • become an actress
  • become a wife
  • become a mother (twice)
  • become a homeowner
  • become a mentor for actors worldwide
  • become the founder of ActorInspiration.com
  • written a blog post every Monday for almost a decade
  • have become an international speaker requested by casting directors and top acting studios all over the world.
  • recorded a new guided meditation every month for the past 6 years
  • created The 5-Day Success Breakthrough Experience (expires Jan. 31)
  • created my Free Masterclass (replay expires Jan. 31)
  • now be celebrating 6 years of helping over 770 actors world-wide radically transform their careers + their lives inside my Success Breakthrough Workshop (Discounted Enrollment ends TONIGHT + Midnight)
  • gathered Success Breakthrough Stories from students all over the world
  • and I definitely wouldn’t have told my agent “No, I’m going.” when he suggested I turn down the initial audition for my role on Atypical (that has now turned into 4 wonderful seasons in a role I love to play).
  • And I definitely wouldn’t have been up “For Your Emmy Consideration As Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series” for my work on Atypical.

If I let fear stop me, I wouldn’t have done any of those things.  None of it.

Success Begins Here….

Many actors are starting this week feeling overwhelmed, frustrated + not knowing where to begin to create the success they crave in 2021.

But if you were with me throughout The 5-Day Success Breakthrough Experience and my Free Masterclasses this past week, you are feeling lighter, clearer, empowered, focused, recharged and excited for the road ahead.

My heart is so full today, as thousands of actors from all over the world joined me in learning how to shed all kinds of limitations, fear, self doubt and now know the exact steps to take to begin their breakthrough year. 

In fact, inside of 90 minutes, those who came to my Live Masterclass Encores this weekend shared these vulnerable moments with me….

HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS:

  1. You can watch the REPLAY now. << no opt in required.  Come learn the 5 steps to radically transform your acting career + your personal happiness (and see what all the buzz is all about).
  2. Enrollment is NOW OPEN for my Success Breakthrough Workshop online course for a limited time only. Click here for details + VIP Early-Bird Pricing.

I’ve spent the last 7 days 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 want to share with you today – as we begin the 3rd week of 2021.

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…

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.

My 2-Step Process For Post Self-Tape Frustration

Hope you had a fun + safe Halloween weekend. Personally, I’ve cried a few times this past week for all kinds of reasons.  You too?

As you may know, I got choked up while sharing my very vulnerable story about growing up with shame, anxiety + around mental illness (and how it has all shaped the work I do with actors). Click here to watch the video.

I cried again reading your beautiful responses and how sharing my story helped you to realize not only are you not alone, but that it’s okay to share your vulnerability and your pain as well.  In fact, your deepest pain can become your greatest gift, if you can face it, feel it and heal it.  I hope you now know, we are all in this together.

Then, over the Halloween weekend, as I was folding 3 piles of laundry on the bed with my ever-supportive husband, while my children were bouncing off the walls from a candy-induced sugar rush, I broke down again.  

Can I just say…tears are a breakthrough. So please, by all means, go ahead and cry your eyes out (especially if you’ve been holding it all in lately for whatever reason).

Ok, so in addition to feeling emotional about politics + pandemics, heck, I’ve had some great self-tapes lately, and I haven’t heard anything yet, and it all just got to me.

I know as actors, we each put our whole heart into what we do, and sometimes it’s hard to let it all go and be present in the moment. (Yes, I struggle with this too).

So I made this quick video to walk you through exactly what I do when I’m deeply frustrated (and how to release it in seconds).  And whether you use my method this week to deal with politics, pandemics or post self-tape, I truly hope this helps you.  (And you enjoy my Halloween makeup).

Click the video below to learn my 2 step process for post-selftape meltdown frustration.
(I think you’ll love it!)

I hope this helps you to know that every actor goes through these kinds of moments.  

I don’t care how many credits you have, (more…)

I Grew Up Deeply Ashamed (And Other Reasons Why I Do This)

Whether you’ve been part of this amazing  community for years, or are just joining me, I wanted to share a deeply personal story with you today.

Everything we go through in our childhood affects who we become, and as I was thinking about “why I do this,” why do I help to uplift + empower actors to create major breakthroughs in their careers and their personal lives, well, it all begins with my story of how I grew up…

When I was growing up, I was deeply ashamed of my childhood home.

My mother, though she was amazing in so many ways + supportive of my creative endeavors, was also a compulsive hoarder.

Click the video below, as I reveal what I learned from growing up with shame, anxiety + around mental illness.

And if you prefer to read the story as I tell it, here is the rest of the transcript that begins above… (more…)

The Mental Game Shift That Can Change Everything

Today’s message is short, but powerful, and one that I hope will impact you in the coming weeks, months + even years to come. 

I love studying the inner shifts of successful people, because I know that every outer success I see, always began on the inside.

I also love that Bryan Cranston shares, so truthfully, what really shifted within him to become the massively successful actor he is today.

Check out this quick video + hear exactly what mental game shift he made, and how you, too, can adopt this new mindset in every audition or self-tape moving forward.

#1 Thing To Stop Saying Before You Self-Tape

I’m sharing a quick video tip today to help you rock your self-tapes + stand out from the competition.

Click here to watch the replay.

Ok, so right now, I know a lot of actors are frustrated when doing self-tapes and often tell themselves, “I’m so much better in the room.”

I get it that you might miss the connection, the interaction and the feedback of an in-person audition, but this thought of “I’m so much better in the room” is not serving you in any way when you’re about to do a self-tape.

In today’s quick video, I share how you can flip the script.

When you’re about to self-tape, stop telling yourself, (more…)
