Hollywood lives are open to the public. Even in the small market, your life and actions are open to the public locally, too. Take for example, actor Christian Bale’s well known melt down on set. If we are honest with ourselves, we’ve all had a melt down that might be on scale with this about something in our lives, right? When you’re in the public light, moments like this can end up vilifying you unjustly. These instances can make learning to show appreciation through your attitude and demeanor a challenge well worth tackling!
If you have appreciation flowing off your lips and regularly scribbled in ink, work on using your attitude to ooze appreciation. Auras are something that a lot of dramatic and intuitive personalities tap into when they are reading signals from others. Do the vibes you give off the second you step foot in the casting room show everyone you are pleased to be there and appreciate their participation in presenting this opportunity?
Too often talent are caught up in the frustrations that we experience as everyday life. That weighty emotional baggage or chip on your shoulder can set the mood for your casting and set the stage for how others respond to your presence. The self-fulfilling prophesy cliché isn’t just a wives' tale. What you put out is what will be returned. Be sure that you are sending gratitude to those around you, despite whatever situation they may be in the midst of facing. One warm sincere smile on a day when problems are crashing down on us can make you memorable and put some good energy back into the day that will likely be reflected on you!
And in doing so, you have set yourself up to stand out without even realizing it. Your audition tape will naturally shine compared to the other heavy or nervous emotions that other talent played into due to stress. Stand out, be interesting, and help others take note of your presence and skill set!
