The thing about acting is that you have to put yourself on the line, again and again. Sure, you know when you sign up to be an actor that you are going to spend your life auditioning, and the reality is no different. Except that facing 'rejection' on a regular basis can take its toll on your self-esteem, on your confidence, and on your passion for what you do.
What would it be like if you didn't have to feel rejected? What if you were able to not only 'bounce back quickly from rejection, but not feel a sense of it at all? What if there was another way to look at your audition experiences?
NLP is a flashy way of describing ways that you can change how you view the world around you. If you're feeling like you've lost your mojo, or that you've become lost in a fog of low-confidence, how great would it be to know that there was an easy, painless way out? A way out that would leave your feeling confident, happy and much more in tune with how to forge a successful career? The bottom line, from an NLP perspective, is that you can choose how you respond each and every time. What if you relished the chance to audition because every one got you one step closer to your goal. What if you could easily take feedback and learnings from every potentially awkward and rubbishy session? What if those 'No's' could have you feeling 'Yes!' inside?
I've spent many, many hours learning coaching methods to help coach actors (and directors, singers, dancers, writers, authors, designers, and well anyone creative really) push through their blocks and come out smiling and much more able to be successful.
