We need to talk about your acting career.

Yup.  I said it.  We need to talk.

3 words killing your acting career - actor mindset

You see, often times I write blogs, do videos and give acting tips and auditioning tips based on my experience in the audition room and from my experience as an executive at HBO.  And those tips are all valid, solid, tangible and real.  And they work.  Big-time.

But today is different.  Today we need to talk about the INtangible in your acting career.

The “invisible” piece you don’t want to look at.  So, yeah… We need to talk.

Well, actually, I'm going to talk frankly to you and help you release one of the most deadly phrases you've ever heard buzzing around in the back of your mind.

REMEMBER: Make sure you watch the video below to get the full benefit of this massive mind shift.

I’m talkin' about those quiet (sometimes NOT so quiet), little (sometimes NOT so little) thoughts that swirl around the back of your mind while you attempt to pursue an acting career.   I say attempt because those insidious thoughts are ruling your career and the results (or lack thereof) you're having in your acting career right now.

In particular, there’s one thought that crops up the most.

It has in it, one of the deadliest phrases for any actor's career.

And sadly, it’s the one thought that almost every single actor has had at least once in their acting career (or sometimes once a day, sometimes once an hour, or even once a minute!).

Sometimes they come paired with other words:

“I'm not good enough”

“My audition is not good enough”

“My talent is not good enough”

“My looks are not good enough”

Sometimes it comes as a voice from others echoing in your head:

“You're not good enough.”

Sometimes they come as a question:

“What if I’m not good enough?”

“Are you really good enough?”

Sometimes they show up as comparison:

“You’re not as good as he is”.

Sometimes they appear with a double whammy of judgment blended in:

“What makes you think you’re good enough?”

Owie. Kapowie!

    Had that lil bugger thrown at me yesterday.. mad me mad when I heard it grrr was an instant shut up in my brain & an wow you’re negative today to the person who said it.. Thank you Amy :)

  2. I waited to watch this so that I’d have time to give it more thought. I’m so glad I did. I’ve been wrestling with more “I’m not good enough” in the past few days than I have in months because of my agent, of all people. I asked her to submit me for a job that required “excellent acting skills.” She called me up and asked me (gently, because she’s a nice person) whether I can honestly say that my acting skills are excellent. Well…no. They’re not, not yet. I didn’t want to embarrass either my agency or myself by submitting for a job I’m not ready for…and yet. Enter “I’m not good enough,” stage right. So as always, Amy, your advice arrived at just the right time to do the most good. Thank you!!!

    It’s ironic – I do believe I am good enough as an actor BUT I let the whole audition process get to me. I have been working through your programs and feel I am getting better but I am a work in progress!
