Do You Feel You Are Not Disciplined Enough As An Actor?

You may find yourself feeling there is so much to do for your acting career: you have to take another acting class, learn another method, go to another workshop, redo your headshots and reel, change your current location, network, train, get another agent, and find auditions for yourself.

Therefore, you may feel you need to be more disciplined to do all those things all the time. If not, you may feel you won’t be able to feel great as an actor and have the type of career that you want.

At the same time, you may feel you don’t have time because of all the things you have to do in 24 hours, including eating, sleeping, and living. And the bad news is that the more technology there is, the more you’ll have to do. In short, all of this may feel like an endless to-do list.

Also, since you have been trained to work hard since you were a child, if you are not able to do all those things, then you may feel it’s your fault. You may be hard on yourself. When you watch my training below you will thiscover that the core reason why you think like this is that you have been conditioned to think that you always have to do more, pressure yourself, be better than others, and be disciplined. You were not asked to JUST BE YOURSELF in the process. Instead, you were asked to DO, DO, DO. You were disciplined into listening, following instructions, and obeying.

If you could have the possibility to just BE in your body, in your feelings, and with yourself; then, everything would change. When you’re BEING you, then what you DO is aligned with who YOU are. Then, you start showing up for all those things because you want to do them from your heart, rather than because of an external obligation. Then, you don’t need more discipline, but focus and alignment. Then, you start being truthful, authentic, and present.

And as an artist, if you are not completely present, you are not able to make any art. Because the only ingredient that you need for art is YOURSELF: your true self, feelings, behavior, thoughts, movements, uniqueness, and humanity.

Thus, the work to do is to undo that conditioning so you can go back to what you were like when you were born. Then, being you is easy, and you start doing the things that only YOU would do. You focus naturally on what you want and love, and you just do it from a place of pleasure.

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!
