Acting Success Seminar

This past weekend I went to the "Acting Success Now" seminar by Robert and Michelle Colt, and I really enjoyed it.

I feel like I met some new friends, and maybe some new business partners; you may know that I started ENTREPERFORMERS with the idea of teaching some of the BUSINESS lessons that the acting teachers forgot to tell us about.

Maybe I can weave what they are doing with what I was doing.

This weekend was a great seminar, all about using your mind to HELP you rather than hinder you, and using the power of CHOICE. I learned about "Releasing" thoughts and emotions that aren't resourceful, and about focusing on beliefs that are resourceful.

Mind you it is ALL stuff I have learned before- and even teach- but like Bruce Lee, I want to get all the perspectives and techniques I can so I can be better at it.

Anyway, while I was there, I met a "Julie", who had signed up for ENTREPERFORMERS a long time ago.

She was SO nice and told me how much she enjoyed the messages I used to email out, and that she had wondered where I went. She told me she found them inspiring and that they helped her sometimes....

Well...

That was great to hear!

Mark Twain said he could live two months on one good compliment.

I should have enough for a year, but it got me thinking that I really DO want to go forward and build Entreperformers up again; I just don't wanna be the figurehead.

I dunno why- maybe some limiting beliefs I have about how much success I should have before I start doing that or something.

That reminds me- one of the sayings Robert gave us this weekend:

"No one likes being 'should' upon"

Also- "Procrastination can be a way of not liking telling yourself what to do"

That one is BIG for me.. like I say to myself "We should really do this" and then I answer "Don't tell me what to do!"

Weird that I say "we" and "me", huh? What can I say, I'm a Gemini!

Anyhow, I really recommend the Colts' seminar, and watch out- I may just start writing to actors again!!
