Review 2021 to thrive in 2022: Jump into 2022 ready to thrive
You might look back at your acting results in 2021 and feel you didn’t get what you wanted in your career. As a consequence of this, you may go to more casting director workshops, renew your marketing materials (headshots and reel), be more present in your social media, do another acting class with a new mentor, etc.
However, if you’re not clear on what the main problem is and you keep complaining about Covid, that the industry is hard and unfair or that there’s too much competition, you will come up with a bunch of solutions that will not address this actual problem. It won’t give you more jobs or fulfillment because the core issue is how you’re showing up as “YOU”.
And that’s the case for most actors since you’ve been raised in a culture where you’ve been conditioned to think, behave and feel as you were told in an appropriate way that will please others. As an artist, this is a recipe for disaster since this prevents you from accessing your uniqueness. So until you address you, take care of your instrument and make sure you’re capable of being 100% free, alive, open, authentic and instinctive, none of the actions you take with your team, your headshots, your reel, your auditions, your self-tapes etc will work.
When you watch my training you'll discover that the good news is that you’re already 100% you, under a thick layer of resistance. The reason why you don't have access to the core of who you are, to the incredible human being that we all are is because you have resistance to it. You were born pure, free, authentic, unique, instinctive. And then, society, education and culture come and put a layer of resistance on everything that is you because from morning to evening they tell you to sit down, be quiet, behave yourself, not to eat this, not to feel or think like that, etc over and over again not to honour who you are, but to please others, be right, compare yourself to others, do things the way they’re supposed to be done. Inevitably, this affects the way you act.
So in the work we do with actors in “The Reset Journey: from Resistance to Freedom”, first we undo that thick layer of resistance and then progressively we start awakening their instinct so that they can show up completely instinctive, free and authentic. From that place, you’re able to take very different actions that will have a ripple effect on everything else that you do in acting and in life. Then, nothing is challenging anymore because you have your own power. You’re taking responsibility and you know that you can choose how things go for you. Then, you can thrive in 2022.
