This is what you need to know to get over feeling SELF-CONSCIOUS
Let’s first define “self-conscious”. 💭
Being self-conscious to a degree is innately normal. The problem is when you give other people so much importance and power that it takes over and dictates who you are.
Sometimes you might feel that paradox when you audition: to book the job vs being the character. If you put more attention on pleasing the casting director, it takes away your space to fight for your character’s needs. Then you’re SCREWED. 🙅
Your job is to defend your character’s needs. So when you’re preoccupied with what you want, you’re not doing your J.O.B. You can’t book that way.
When you watch my training you'll discover that the truth about acting is when you ONLY care about the character, that’s when you become INTERESTING. But the second you try to be interesting, you’re not interesting anymore❗❗❗
As actors you’re passionate about storytelling and offering yourself to different characters to allow an audience to be impacted.
So how do you become interesting without trying to be interesting? 🔮
We’ve all been wired and conditioned to please everyone. 💣 You want to be aware of that wiring and do the work so it’s not leading you as an artist. You wanna work through that old wiring to a place where you’re instinctive, in-the-moment and present. 🎯
The work we do is to unlearn and unwire that conditioning and muscling back up that INSTINCT. 👊
If you want to do this work, let us know. Get in touch with us click here and write us an email with the word RESET BLOG and we’ll send you some info.
And to take the conversation a little further, I’d love to hear from you.
