How To Book More Often

My husband snapped this photo after I had just come home from a film audition earlier this month.

I went in to read for one role, and before I was even finished with the last page of sides, the director asked me to read for another role…the lead.

The casting director handed me 15 new pages of material and told me to “take as much time as I needed.”

Their session was ending soon, so I really only had about 15 minutes.

There was no time to rehearse, overthink or debate, but just to go with my instincts, make strong choices, and have fun.

And that’s exactly what I did.

I came home feeling so good. I was simply enjoying the journey of being an actor, and the fun of getting to play in a room full of creative people.

The whole experience reminded me that enjoying the journey is the most important part of getting to where you want to go.

Of course, I thought about the audition the next day. In fact, as I was doing laps in our pool, I reminded myself, “I don’t pick the jobs, the jobs pick me,” and just let it all go.

In that moment, I got back in alignment with feeling good, being present, and enjoying my time with my family.

Later that afternoon, I got a call that I booked the job. (I’m actually on set all this week!)

I share this with you, because when I look back on it, I was really just enjoying the process: the audition, the cold read, the drive home, the next day, the not knowing….in all of it, I was finding joy. (Even though it was 102 degrees in the valley!)

I’ve also had plenty of auditions in the last few months where I did great work, loved the role and didn’t get the part, but last week I was reminded that it’s enjoying the journey that matters most, and that our ability to find joy in the process is what will truly keep us going.

So, what if, this week, you started to find the joy that is right in front of you? Whether it’s in an audition waiting room, or on the subway, while driving home or simply being with those you love.

When you align with the joy that is everywhere in your life (while not needing a booking to bring it to you), the right jobs will find their way to you, at the right time.

Align more. Let go more. Enjoy the journey more.

Let me know in the comments below how are you creating alignment with joy this week?

Here’s to a week of enjoying the journey.

Love + Gratitude,
– Wendy
