Feeling Demotivated About Your Career

As actors, you may not feel like rehearsing, creating your own content, training on your instrument, reaching out to casting directors, or even going to auditions. You may feel that you have lost the passion and motivation that you initially felt when you started your acting career. This must be really frustrating since acting is a passion and it’s the art form you chose.


On top of this frustration, you may also feel completely burnt out and depleted. So whenever a new opportunity comes in, you’re unable to show up for it fully. As a consequence of this, you may not be booking. So you may have tried to fix yourself as if there were something wrong with you. You may have done therapy, gone to another acting class, tried a new method or studied with another acting teacher. And that may not have worked either.


When you watch my training belowe you'll discover that the real reason why you’re unmotivated is because the way you’re approaching your career is not the way that works. You may not approach it from a soulful, free, authentic and purposeful place inside of you. You may be approaching it from a place of pushing and faking; from a place of trying to compete with others, looking good and confident, trying to get external validation and to do things “right”. When you do that, you’re in the mindset of taking instead of giving. And when you pursue your career to make your ego happy, instead of doing it in a way that feeds your soul and heart, inevitably, you end up being demotivated, even if you get a lot of work.


However, when you show up in your career being fully you, free, purposeful and authentic; everything that you do feeds you because you’re literally living what you came for. And the result will be that you will book way more often because people will see you, you will be completely present. You won’t try to book, please others and sell. You will be there to give your truth, vulnerability and uniqueness.


The reason why you’re unable to access that level of truth, freedom and authenticity is because you’ve been conditioned to behave, think and feel a certain way so you could please others, get external validation and fit in. So there’s a need to undo that conditioning so that you can show up being fully you.
