Do You Feel Pressured By Competition When You Audition? Here Is The Actual Truth.

You may think that the industry is very competitive. There are so many actors and not enough roles that getting more or bigger roles might seem impossible. 

When you land an important audition, you might think that there are so many other actors out there who are more known, have better agents or more credits than you. This can spiral into thinking you need to work harder, get more coaching, or take more classes so you can stand out. All this process can make you feel powerless and drain all your energy.

When you do this, inevitably, you end up feeling unfulfilled and stuck in your ego. You may end up doing more and more. But what you are going to get is the same results. 

Obviously, this doesn’t work for casting directors either. They want to see your ego stripped away, your energy focused not on beating others, but on defending your character’s needs.

When you watch my training below you will discover that the root of the problem is that you believe there's too much competition and you must be better than others. This belief drives you to find a false solution—seeking external validation and improvement—which ultimately leads to unfulfillment.

The truth is that you were born perfect and unique. You are everything you need. Your job as an actor is to bring full aliveness to a character. And you were born fully alive. 

The work you need to do isn’t about getting better than others, but about undoing your conditioning so you can go back to the free, unique, alive and full version of yourself. By reconnecting with your inner truth and unique humanity, you will be able to get fully present and authentic, allowing your natural talents to shine through.

Watch my training below to hear all my thoughts on this topic.

After you watch the training, I'd love for you to join in the conversation happening in our private Facebook Group THE INSTINCTIVE ACTORS' SOCIETY. You can get answers for your specific situation directly from me and connect with THOUSANDS of like-minded actors across the globe, so we can move things forward faster together.

If you're not already a member, be sure to request to join ASAP here.

See you there!
