I ran into an actor the other day who spoke to me about the challenges he faces while working to create a paying career in the industry. He mentioned all of the training he received to help him build his craft. He shared his recent work with me and then he stated he was still uncertain if he could "really do this acting thing".
His words brought me to the many times, I have talked and worked with actors on this very same subject.
His words also brought me to the importance of sharing this story as I understand this situation all too well.
You see there was a time in my own career that I questioned my ability to be able to step out and really claim my space in a different market. I had just relocated to a different country and needed to familiarize myself with this new market. I went on audition after audition and wondered if I would even book a role as I did not speak the local languages nor could I speak the accent of the people of the country I was living in.
I had to really get beyond my own thoughts to begin to build the career that I wanted and now I am an international actor who has been able to perform in fabulous productions and with fabulous people in different countries while getting paid.
What I know is that the biggest thing that holds most actors back is our own thoughts about our talents and our abilities to take our careers to where we want them to be.
You know the quote "As a man thinketh within himself so is he."* In essence we become what we think as our thoughts form our beliefs and our beliefs shape our actions.
So if you are in the space of thinking you are not good enough or that you may not be able to make money in the industry or that you are a starving artist you will begin to develop all that you process and believe into your life.
The truth, your life and career does not have to go down that path. You definitely can reshape your thoughts and this is what I want to help you do in the first day of my Free Five Day Paid Actor Career Accelerator Challenge.
