Recently I had a run in with my own little whore. It was shortly after I was cast in Queen Marie and I started to worry about what I was going to do before that, and after. What I'm trying to do now, and trying to make a habit of it, is shifting that energy into positive actions for my career rather than useless worrying. Instead of stressing about the imaginary gigs before and after, I will edit my resume, update my website, read plays, etc. Anything that is positive for my career and helps me feel like things are moving forward, because they are!
It really all comes down to fear, and that's what I need to keep reminding myself. Confidence is the arch enemy of fear, and as May West once said when asked how you "get" confidence, "I dunno, you just GET it!". True dat May West.
I caught the tail end of "Master Class" on tv last night featuring Morgan Freeman. His words stories were incredibly inspiring and useful for any career. He shared a few tips for success that really stuck with me:
- Make the Best of it
- Follow Your Own Muse...Always
- Follow Your Principles
- Be Irreplaceable
- You Have to Listen!
Adios ya Whore! Gracias Morgan Freeman.
Still on track for 26 Days of Fitness. Wish me Luck!
