Are you afraid to make mistakes when you act?
Is the fear of failure overwhelming you in the audition room?
I know, the fear is BIG. It's heavy, and it's probably weighing you down.
A lot of actors have told me they're "extremely scared" to make mistakes. It’s their biggest fear as an actor. And the list of fears I have heard is endless:
Not knowing your sides well enough before an audition
Not being able to be fully free and expressive on set
Being too attached to the result
Being so focused on what you're doing that you cannot listen to your scene partner and react
Being so nervous that you are unable to hear your intuition
Not feeling prepared enough
Being bad at blocking
Taking direction poorly
Making a "bad" or "wrong" choice (as if there's a right choice...)
Not respecting the material enough
Acting in front of an important decision maker or famous actor
Even just speaking to casting directors in the audition room!
Ugh, guys, I could go on and on......
The fear of making a mistake pushes you to a place where you're no longer in the moment, you're performing. You're trying to remember your lines perfectly, or figure out what the casting director wants, or what their body language meant when you entered the room... you're not doing the job you came there to be hired for, which is to be ALIVE.
And no matter how much you try to avoid mistakes, it won’t give you the results you want.
When you watch my free training, you’ll discover…
The simple reason why the fear of making a mistake dominates us, not just among actors but in life in general.
Mistakes do not actually exist. No, it's not a magic trick, or even a mindset shift, really, it's just a lesson in human history.
You may be an actor, but you've been doing math in the audition room. I'll explain what that means and why it's time for you to stop.
When you have a free instrument, there is only one thing you need to do in the audition room, and I'll explain what that is.
Watch the training below and begin to release your fear of “failing”.
