Being an aspiring actor and actively placing myself within one of the toughest industries, I need to keep up that motivation following the constant current of rejection, criticism and struggle.
With the mere minutes a day where I actually have some time to myself, I sit at my kitchen’s breakfast bar, grab a snack, look down at my phone and EVERY SINGLE TIME I hit the YouTube button.
–Peter Dinklage addressing Bennington College
–ANY speech from Denzel Washington
-Kate Winslet’s ‘fat girl’ BAFTA speech
–Jim Carrey’s power of Visualisation
My ears are open to everything. Everything that can possibly help refuel my drive, relight my fire, remind me that EVERYONE had a struggle at some point.
Let’s touch on that Visualisation one for a moment
“Creative Visualisation uses the power of the mind, and it’s power behind every success. By visualising a certain event, situation, or an object, you attract it into our life. It is a process that is similar to daydreaming”
Before he was famous, Jim Carrey basically tells us that he used the idea of visualisation to picture himself living on a certain street in Los Angeles; amongst the current stars.
He wrote HIMSELF a cheque for $10 Million at the beginning of the 90’s and dated it for 1995 – giving himself 5 years to make something of himself
Just before Thanksgiving 1995, he was offered $10 Million for his role in Dumb & Dumber…
But what if we tried Visualisation not for our future, but for our PRESENT?
Mental Health is something that isn’t physical. You can’t just screw it up and throw it in a bin. You can’t wash it down the drain, or delete your thoughts as if they never happened
Continuing from last week’s ‘Pursuit of Perfection’ post, I have put ‘Perfection into Perspective’ (thats a lot of p’s)
I’m going to help you VISUALISE what the Pursuit of Perfection really is, and how it is SO BAD for us and our Mental Health
‘By visualising a certain event, situation, or an object, you attract it into your life’
If you are attracting perfection into your life, you are attracting negativity into your life
Visualise the story
Understand the effect
And best of all
