To Be

ActingTo Be

By: Travis De Luca

William Shakespeare wrote. “To be or not to be…”  This is our question about our creative career(s) and our life.  What is it we want to be?  Do we want to continue as is or do we want to move into a greater sense and experience of well-being, prosperity, success and yes, money?  There is power in our thoughts, words, decisions, and concept of the world around us. It is always our choice what we decide to give power to in our life and career.  Be positive in your self-concept and in all you do to achieve your goals as a creative individual.  As actors, writers and creatives we are always playing “make believe,” so why not utilize our skill of “make believe” to create the career and life we desire and to accomplish our goals.  Life will always honor us by reflecting back to us what we accept as true about ourselves and our world of experience.

Today’s Positive Thought

Eagle   Today’s Positive Thought.  Was sent to me by Travis De Luca.

To Be or Not To Be, that is truly the question.  Is it nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of limited thinking and believing or to move forward in expanding our thoughts and beliefs to greater fortune and success?  It is always our choice.

A Friend

A Friend

By: Jay

Director's Chair  I have been talking with a friend of mine who has resurrected their acting career and union membership after a very long hiatus from the industry and is looking for representation, a talent agent.

They are very good, have a fantastic acting coach and are brushing up on film and television acting techniques.

Now about the comments they are receiving from different people in the industry, they are not always positive.

So, how are they dealing with all these comments?  First and foremost my friend has had many obstacles to overcome and is not of the mind to accept any negatives after all they have been through.  They are affirming throughout the day that they are “drawn to the right talent agent at the right time and the right talent agent is drawn to them at the right time,”  right roles, etc.,  always affirming the positive and visualizing their career taking off and being a full time, award winning, well paid actor.  Believing in ourselves, our talent and ability is a key to moving ahead in any life/career choice we make.    

Each of us has had to overcome obstacles in our life/careers and it is about being positive in moving forward that has carried us to our goals.  We affirm the positives throughout the day, we take time to meditate, sit quietly and visualize the completion of our goals and see ourselves enjoying and reaping the benefits of these goals.  But most of all, we are thankful for having now achieved our goals, even though they may not be in sight.  Life is what we make it and what we proclaim it to be in our thoughts and words.

All of us have encountered people in our field of work who like to spew negatives about how hard or difficult it is or how long it will take to advance, etc.  It is only as hard or difficult as we choose to make it.

Treat yourself well and take time to do the inner work and watch it appear in the outer world, cause and effect.

Shakespeare wrote,

“All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players;

They have their exits and their entrances,

And one man in his time plays many parts…”

Perhaps it is time to rewrite the current script and create a more successful version of the character you are now portraying on the stage of life.

The reviews are in and the critics are raving about your success!!

New Chapter

Congrats Toast   This past Saturday a chapter of my life was closed, a bit overdue, and a new chapter opened with new career paths.  New Endings and New Beginnings were the order of the day.  There was a celebration that included the ending of the old and welcoming the new with friends from both past and present.  A bright and sunny future greeted me with; open arms, new friends and colleagues. 

Opportunities are on the rise and I look forward to investigating them all.

I was a bit hesitant about the closing of this last chapter in my old life and had to make a decision to be true to myself, my desires, my dreams, while setting goals along the way. 

Life is always giving us cues and clues about the changes that will bring us more joy and happiness in our life and in our relationship with ourselves, family, friends and colleagues.  It all depends on when we are ready to gird our loins and move forward into a new life experience which will bring us great fulfillment as an individual. 

One of my favorite partial quotes is by Wm. Shakespeare, “To be or not to be…”  I chose to be me.  Not always the easiest decision to make when it affects all areas of your life. 

The journey ahead is filled with excitement and newness.  This new life has been tugging at me for quite a few years and it appears the decisions made were at the right time.

I wish you continued success on your journey to being you and to all you set your mind and hands.
