Story time! 🙌📖 When I was in the thick of this biz, on the acting side, I actually had a pretty good audition:booking ratio. Why? Well... Maybe I always had an uncanny knack for thinking more like an agent/manager/casting director than an actor... 🤔
Maybe I was just really lucky... 🤔
Or maybe I instinctively had a strong grasp on what was within my circle of control, and what was NOT.
Because actors... there are a lot of nots!
You've got to learn to LET. IT. GO.
You attract what you emit. I was more than happy to accept every audition offered, do my prep, show my work/take on the character, and LEAVE.
And then NOT think about it. At all. Until I got a call. Or never again, if I never got a call.
This is what you must master if you wish to stay sane, and push through the bumpy bits in order to soar on the other side. It does not happen overnight. Don't make it harder on yourself. You might get given a cactus... but you don't have to sit on it!! 🌵
