Acting Goals: 5 questions + 5 reasons why most people never achieve their goals

Acting Goals:
5 important questions for actors + 5 reasons why most people never achieve their goals

I decided to make this video for all of you, my friends at ActingCareerQuickStart.com for the beginning of this new year. Why? Because it’s the time for New Year’s messages. You know, the ones that say, “I hope you achieve your dreams” and stuff like that. Well, I wanted to create a video for you that tells you how to reach your dreams, whatever they are, acting or anything else. But let’s focus on your acting career.

Before you look at the video here below, think about these questions BEFORE YOU SET NEW ACTING GOALS that you once again risk not achieving, start to think about why you haven’t achieved those goals and how you can increase your chances of achieving the new ones you set for yourself. Here are the questions to help you think about your acting goals.

5 VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS FOR ACTORS

a. Where were you in your acting career, with regard to your acting goals 12 months ago? Think about it. On a scale from 1 – 10 where were you? 1 means that you were nowhere, no acting auditions, didn’t know what to do, no agent, not in acting school. Nothing. 10 means that you were a successful working actor making a full-time living only from acting. Where were you 12 months ago?

b. Where are you today with regard to your acting goals, in your acting career? On a scale from 1 – 10 where are you? Think about it. If you are here reading this, then I can only imagine where you must be, but that’s ok. Just keep reading. 1 means you are still nowhere, no better off than you were last year this time. 10 means that you have made significant progress, at the top of your game. Where are you?

c. Are the things that you have been doing over the last 12 months to start your acting career actually, to reach your acting goals working for you? Are they helping you to get auditions, get an agent, learn the business, learn how to get casting directors to call you in for auditions, get acting auditions, etc.?

d. Where will you be in your acting career 12 months from today if you keep doing those things? In other words if what you have been doing to reach your acting goals is working and you are getting results, then of course you will want to keep doing those things. If on the other hand, those things that you have been trying are NOT working for you, then I ask you, where will you be in 12 months if you keep doing them? That brings me to the last question.

e. Now that you have thought about where you were 12 months ago in your acting career, the things you have been doing to start your acting career and whether they are working for you or not, now the question is, what are you going to do?

NOW SET YOUR NEW ACTING GOALS:
VIDEO: 5 Characteristics your goals need to have = 5 reasons why most people never achieve their goals

NOW you can start thinking about your acting goals that you want to set for yourself for this year. Now is the time, after you have thought about what you have done, what’s worked and what didn’t. Now you can set new acting goals in a smarter and more intelligent way, avoiding the same old mistakes and increase your chances for success. How do you do that?

When you set goals of any kind for anything you want to achieve in life, you will want to make sure that there are 5 characteristics that your goals have. In other words, there are 5 mistakes that people make when setting goals that end up being the reason why most people never achieve those goals they set. That’s what this video is all about. It could be a great time investment for you I like to be concrete and practical and so I will share this video with you.

ONE LAST THING

One last thing. Remember that big goals are made up of little goals. Don’t try and set one big, huge goal, because you risk being disappointed because you can’t achieve it all at once. Setting goals that are too big can be overwhelming. Break your big goal down into little, bite-sized chunks, each of which are easier to reach by themselves. Reach each little goal one by one and you will see that you will slowly make progress to achieving your bigger goal.

In conclusion

The key to achieving your acting goals is this. If you have been doing things over the last 12 months that have been helping you, then keep doing them. Congratulations.
If you have been doing things over the last 12 months that have not been helping you, then you have two choices. Either keep doing them and getting nowhere, or change something.
If you want to change something towards meeting your acting goals, The Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Video Course could be exactly what you need to finally start doing the right things in the right order and finally getting your acting career off the ground!

I not only wish for you that you achieve your dreams in this New Year, I also hope to have showed you how to make them come true. All the best!

My First Three Months (in my acting career)

Download your free gift here: My First Three Months Story

I’ve met a lot of people over the last few years here online who come to me because they are struggling to start their acting career.

  • They don’t have an agent.
  • Can’t get one.
  • No luck finding auditions.
  • They find one audition once every blue moon!
  • Many get one acting job every few months. Some get a job once a year.

The reason I built my websites for new actors is because I see it over and over again. The problem isn’t that they don’t want to get more acting auditions and acting work. The problem is that they don’t know how to do it!

How is is possible to get more than 37 auditions, book 10 acting jobs and make almost $4,000 in just 10 weeks? I did that [fname] and I want to share with you how I did it. (I actually worked on 8 of those jobs during the 10 weeks and the other 2 after the three month period was over.(

Originally My First Three Months of my acting career story was meant to be one of the bonuses in the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course and it still is. It is the very first bonus students receive in the first month. At the beginning of this New Year, I have decided to give it to you now, before you enroll in the course. It’s my gift to you.

So here it is. It’s a 40-page ebook, that you can download.

In the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course, I teach you how to do everything I did in those three months and more.

I’ll close by saying that if you are really serious about starting an acting career, in other words, if starting an acting career is REALLY important to you and you don’t already have a coach or a mentor, the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course and I are just a couple of clicks away.

Have you ever felt that something was off in an audition situation?

The rest of the question from one of the students in the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course:

"A few weeks ago I had an audition for a play. It was for a very popular
theatre company in the area. They had a ton of people in that audition situation.
It was a cold read audition only. I received an email that 17 people didn't make
it. The lady who submitted the email said it took her 5 times to
audition before she got a role with this particular theatre! I thought to
myself, "Wow, this is very a competitive and hard company to get involved
with!" Only three times in my lifetime I didn't get a call back for a play.
But the most interesting part was, while I was waiting I could tell a lot
of the actors have worked together in the past and knew the directors.
There was a certain vibe in the air that wasn't quite right. Usually at an
audition I feel great and have a lot of fun. Yes, a little nervous but
fun. I didn't feel anything, everything felt weird. Have you ever
walked into an audition and felt like something was off?"

MY ANSWER:

Yes I have in more than one audition situation and felt that something was off. I have felt in a similar way to what you described. I saw other actors that knew each other and in some cases had worked together on projects. Early on that made me feel uncomfortable.
Later I saw it as a challenge and had too strong of an attitude when I walked into the auditions. I had too much energy and “will to win”, because I took it as a challenge, that I had to beat them. That wasn’t good either and in such cases I didn’t get called back.
Then I realized what I was doing wrong and I learned to be confident, but at the same time relax and that made all the difference in the world.

One of the things we cover in the Home-Study Course is how to best handle yourself in an audition situation.
