Here's how I see it: Think about actors and actresses, studying, rehearsing, getting into character for a part. Then you have the director. The director looks at them and says "okay...GO...ACTION!" The actor or actress reads their lines or acts out the scene. The director will then either love it and have them keep going or...critique them and say, "I didn't believe you." So they try...try again. The director says..."what's your motivation?" There is always a motivation. The roles never stay the same and the actors are constantly evolving and growing thier skills until the next big break. If they want to be seen, if they want to grow and move forward...then they need to believe in themselves and their audience needs to believe them.
So I ask you this. I'm the director. I'm your family, your friend, your client, whomever I need to be. What's your motivation? What emotions, feelings, memories are you needing to bring to the surface to make your part...your role believable? For the students and clients I support every day, it's my job and my pleasure to encourage all of them to reach deep within themselves...be vulnerable...expose the talents and pull out the performance of a lifetime. It's about developing confindence in your own self worth and confidence so that no matter what the role...people keep coming to see you because you believe in what you do and who you are. Constantly growing and evolving to fit the next big opportunity and reaping the rewards and lessons of the efforts you put into it all.
Intentions are great, but without action there's no result, no reward, no point! So, what's your motivation? What role are you working towards today and how bright is your star planning to shine? Are you taking steps to get there yet? Or is it just another good idea?
