This Is How You Can Get Awarded As An Actor

You might think that once you produce your own masterpiece and get awarded, all your problems will be solved: you'll be offered numerous roles, you won’t have to worry about money anymore, and you will be recognized and validated. However, if you don’t take care of your instrument, some aspects of your life might change, but your relationship with yourself, your emotions, and your career will remain unchanged. Essentially, your life does not transform merely by being awarded.

Moreover, acting offers the opportunity to be fully alive, to defend a character's life that will, in turn, impact an audience with your truth and humanity, thereby awakening their truth and humanity. From this perspective, being awarded means delivering a masterpiece that stands out for its uniqueness and authenticity. It is not about becoming a celebrity and pleasing everyone.

As actors, you may seek consistent work that fulfills you. Enjoying the entire process of your art and working on a character or story that resonates with you seem like prerequisites for achieving your masterpiece.

However, there are myths entrenched in the culture of the industry that will not lead you to your masterpieces, such as "being better than others," "looking good," "being super confident," "having very high self-esteem," "remaining very calm before you act," "working hard," or "knowing your lines perfectly," for example. These will not necessarily make you feel great when you act.

In fact, when you watch my training below you will discover that there is no formula for creating a masterpiece or winning an award. The moment you start focusing on the result and trying to manipulate the outcome of your performance, you cease to be present, instinctive, authentic, and free. Consequently, you won’t be able to advocate for your character's needs because you'll be too busy catering to your ego’s demands.

Moreover, relying too much on acting schools and teachers can distance you from your own authority, freedom, and truth. You are already perfect as you are. You possess everything necessary. The only obstacle is your conditioning and learned behaviors. The task at hand is to unlearn that conditioning to return to the free, truthful, present, alive, and unique version of yourself. From that state of aliveness, truth, and freedom, you’ll be capable of delivering your masterpiece.

Watch my training to hear all my thoughts on this topic.
