This Is How You Stay Competitive During The Strike

We have definitely gone through challenging times lately. First with Covid and now with the strike in the US. Even though you may understand the reasons for the strike, you may feel stuck and disempowered over what’s happening since you are not able to work. We are definitely trying to raise the bar to get better circumstances. This can be really uncomfortable.

Having said this, the opportunity for you in this downtime is to spend some time inwards and get deep down into the unique and free version of yourself. Viktor Frankl states in his book Man’s Search for Meaning: when the circumstances force you to not have any control over your reality, the invitation is to go inside and work on yourself.

When you watch my training below you will see that you have two choices. You can use this time as a victim and get frustrated because there is nothing that you can do. Or, you can use this time in a way that works for you and deepen your connection with yourself. You can move through all the conditioning, masks, people-pleasing mechanisms so that you can get back to who you truly and freely are.

When you show up blocked, masked or tied up in your auditions, self tapes or on set people are not able to see you. However, when you undo the conditioning and learned behaviors, you are able to show up free and present. Then, casting directors and directors start to see you and want to work with you because you are being yourself. That’s when your booking ratio triples.

In short, the industry will reopen at a certain moment. Some actors will have dropped out because it’s not sustainable for them to wait. But some will stay and industry projects will be shot. There will be a lot of work and it will have to be done really fast. So if you want to be fulfilled and impact an audience, you can take advantage of this downtime, go inside of yourself and move through all your tensions, blocks and everything that prevents you from being 100% alive.

After you watch the training, I'd love for you to join in the conversation happening in our private Facebook Group THE INSTINCTIVE ACTORS' SOCIETY. You can get answers for your specific situation directly from me and connect with THOUSANDS of like-minded actors across the globe, so we can move things forward faster together.

If you're not already a member, be sure to request to join ASAP here.

See you there!
