How to Feel Successful and Fulfilled as an Actor
Jun 03, 2019
Why do some actors thrive and others struggle?
Often it comes down to something very simple and yet very powerful.
I've spent more than 40 years teaching celebrities and top actors from around the world. I know from experience that if you want to be successful and fulfilled as an actor, there’s something much more important than raw talent.
People pursue a life of acting because they want to create. They want to share something magical with the world. At least until they encounter the cold realities of the business and get damaged by pressure and rejection. Too many actors start off with dreams of being discovered, only to walk away from it all (years or decades later), heart broken.
Over time, getting jobs and going to auditions feels like a referendum on our self worth. A successful audition seems like validation, while rejection becomes a painful confirmation that we’re doing something wrong … or that we’ll never make it.
It does not have to be this way!
From decades of experience I can promise you that the most important thing you can do as an actor is stay connected to your love of creating. Instead of feeling like auditions are a trial, you can see them as an opportunity to savor every moment of the process.
Auditions are not a barrier between you and your goals. No matter how an audition goes, every one of them is an opportunity for you to bring your gifts to the world. Each moment you get a chance to act can be an expression of magic, creativity and joy.
When you make this fundamental shift in perspective, everyone around you can feel it … casting directors can feel it! When you make this change the process becomes a pleasure. You realize that you’ve already started living the dream, you are already LIVING THE LIFE!
Stop worrying about what’s on the other side of an audition, and start seeing auditions as an essential part of why you started acting in the first place.
The future does not exist. The only thing you have is today. Make your dreams come true – right now – by loving every moment of this incredible journey.
When you grow as an actor you grow as a person. Become the actor and the person you were born to become.
To your success!
