Have You Lost Fun And Joy In Acting?

As professional actors, you may have lost fun and joy in acting. You may be feeling a lot of pressure on set, you may not be getting enough auditions or bookings or you may be performing roles you do not resonate with. This may make you feel frustrated, unfulfilled or annoyed after having invested a lot of time, money and work in your career and it defies the purpose of acting since you probably started acting because it feels amazing and you are passionate about it.

If you are beginners, you may also be experiencing pain and unfulfillment because they do not give you enough time to prepare for your auditions or because you audition for a role which is not for you or because the casting director is not nice to you.

In order to solve this, you may have tried to work harder, to sign up for many acting workshops, to read a lot of acting books, to go to therapy; in other words, you may have tried to fix yourself.

When you watch my training below you will discover that this happens because in our culture we have been conditioned to think that there is something wrong with us and we need to get better and improve. However, you were born perfectly human, free, open and truthful. Then, you were programmed and educated to be good and do things right; to feel and behave a certain way so you could be validated. You were told not to be angry in front of others, to cry or to be too scared. Then, if you did not behave according to what they wanted, you were punished. In conclusion, you have been conditioned not to feel.

As artists, if you do not feel the fun and joy anymore, your responsibility is to find out why you lost that fulfillment. The second you point fingers and blame external circumstances, you become a victim of those circumstances. That does not give you the power to change and take action.

Instead, the work to do so you can get your power, freedom and joy back is to undo that conditioning that prevents you from being your free self again, like when you were a child. You were built perfectly free, human and beautifully messed up. That is where the joy and the fun are. They come from experiencing yourself.
