Got any New Year's resolutions?
Did you know that if you have New Year's resolutions, you are TEN TIMES as likely to achieve your goals as someone who doesn't?
So, I'll ask again - got any resolutions?
Did you also know that studies have proven that we humans have VERY LITTLE willpower?
It's REALLY HARD to make changes and do big things without LOTS OF SUPPORT and a BIG reason why.
That's why every year we all start with all kinds of vim and vigor, excitement and enthusiasm, just SURE that this is the year we will finally:
* get those perfect new head shots and
* send them out to agents and casting directors and
* take the classes we know we need to be on top of our craft
... and yet, year after year, we don't.
That's because studies have found that of those of us who make resolutions, only about 25% of us achieve what we've resolved...
But 60% of us achieve them if we TELL THEM TO SOMEONE ELSE...
And a whopping 95% of us achieve them if we KEEP SOMEONE ELSE abreast of our ongoing progress!
In other words, don't keep it to yourself, and don't think you "should" be able to do this alone!
It's so important to have SUPPORT. You also want to be held accountable and belong to a community that WANTS you to succeed.
If you don't have that in your life, I have good news. You CAN have that kind of unconditional support if you sign up for classes at The Actors Alliance where actors are supported and empowered to live their dreams.
Here are some comments by actors who are members of the Alliance...
"Thank you, Veleka! I have really been enjoying class. It has taught me a lot about myself, even beyond acting."
~ Rosemary Monroe, Baton Rouge
"I just got cast for a stage play called 'Lies My Family Told.' I'm so excited. Thanks, Veleka Gray, for your great training. I went in there and did my Four Steps and got the part. I wasn't even nervous and I didn't mess up :-)"
~ Erika Coleman, New Orleans
"I really appreciate the service you provide for us dreamers, Veleka. The skills you teach are imperative for us to, not just grow as actors, but to become more in-tune, radiant people altogether. :)"
~ Samantha Sitzman, New Orleans
In classes with The Actors Alliance, you learn very powerful processes and practices that can be the secret of your success. And I'm going to be sharing them in a six-week semester that starts on Monday, January 9th.
Just think - in six weeks you can create a vision, a plan, and get amazing support to make the year you want a reality.
If you think this might be for you, then your assignment is to register for classes today. Just e-mail [address removed] for the details. And then start thinking, daydreaming, and imagining how you want 2012 to be better than 2011. Ask yourself:
1. What do you want to change about your acting career?
2. What are the top five things you want to do for your career right now?
3. If you could choose one area to focus on, what area would that be?
Now, write down your answers.
Decide to take action on your dreams and set yourself up to win...
This is the first step in Creating a Year that Matters!
P.S. Be sure to write down your answers to the three questions above. When you start putting words to your desires, magic happens. I can't wait to help you make 2012 the best Fearless Year ever!
