Being Positive - A Way of Life

Ok, so if you know me or you don't, know this: I'm a Positive Person!

One of the reasons I wanted to start this podcast was the string of negative remarks coming out of auditions. Even though our community is extremely positive in nature, we tend to take some things personally even when we know it's nothing personal.

Personally, I've never had a problem with this. I go in, do the best audition I can, and leave...knowing I was prepared, did the best job I could and certainly happy about the connection I had just made.

I know it's a bummer, sometimes we can get down on ourselves and just go home and sulk. People!! Don't do it!! Believe me, I know it's hard to do, but you just have to set your mind at the end result.

So, think about this today...what are your acting goals? Who do you want to be in the end? What do you want to leave your audiences with?

THESE are the things you should constantly strive to be thinking about. If you go in a negative direction, you won't be able to TRULY share your acting gifts with those that were meant to experience it.

Every Audition is a Celebration-Every Audition should be your BEST work!

Now go get 'em!
