HOW DO YOU ACT WHEN LIFE HITS YOU HARD?
How do you still act when you’re going through tough personal issues? If you have a big audition, you might feel like it’s impossible to show up fully for your character.
I often see actors collapse when major life events happen, waiting for the storm to pass before they feel able to resume with their work.
Some actors avoid the trauma and ignore what’s happening to them, in order to be functional.
Other actors resist the emotion or the event. They fight it in order to not be impacted by it at all.
All these reactions are understandable and very common responses. However, big opportunities often come by in the middle of big, life distractions.
When you watch my training you'll discovert that what’s also available to you when life hits hard is the opportunity to realise that life doesn’t happen to you, it happens FOR you.
In other words…
Unavoidable, inevitable, difficult events show you the path to your next step. Without stuff hitting us hard, we’d be cruising along at the same tempo and we’d get bored. Big challenges that arise invite us to discover what’s indestructible inside of us.
If you avoid or run away from the struggle, you’re missing out on that opportunity. When you allow yourself to go through the fire and go into the emotion, you’ll discover your greatest gift. You’re being hit so that you can expand to the next level.
When you do that as an artist, then you have so much more to bring to the table of your craft.
Don’t fight the big life events that hit you. They’re showing you the route to your gold.
We’re not wired to do that in society. We’re raised to repress our emotions.
The work we do in our program is unwiring the conditioning that you’ve received in order to rewire you to what you were always meant to be so that you can become your true self. When you are your true self, everything becomes easier and effortless as an actor, and in life too.
