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....


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!!
