Why are we so scared to say what it is we want? A student recently expressed what his intentions were for his career and he was unspecific. He said something like, “I want to get into rooms.” Now we understand what that means at one level. He wants to get opportunities. He wants to beRead more
I had a student I was teaching in Australia recently who had a watershed moment in his acting. And it did create a watershed. Being vulnerable might do that to you. He realized that he’s been “acting” – meaning self-generating – rather than simply being – and allowing himself to be affected in theRead more
What are we all so scared of? Being seen? Failing? Not measuring up? Being rejected? Vulnerability? Thinking the rest of the world will see how badly we often think of ourselves? All of these qualities are part of being human and being brave enough to step out into the world with something to say.Read more
We’re all 7’s Looking for 11’s. Get over it. In fact, the sooner you make the realization that the “perfect” fill-in-the-blank doesn’t exist, not only will you be much happier, but ironically, you’ll find perfection in what is. Huh?

A student of mine said recently that while she’s driving around town she often asks herself, “What am I doing with my life?” We can all relate. But when we ask ourselves that question, we often do it out of panic and undermine how much we’ve actually accomplished. We beat ourselves up for where weRead more
Why do we run away from who we are? Well, it seems pretty obvious. We feel we lack his charm, her looks. His intelligence, her sexiness. We erroneously think that the qualities we possess are inadequate and unlikable. And we judge them. But something you might have discovered about life is that no matter howRead more
I was asked to be a presenter at this year’s Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment (GATE) Conference this past weekend. Some of the other speakers included Jim Carrey, comedian Louie Anderson, filmmaker Tom Shadyac, and many other inspiring artists. I wasn’t prepared. That can be a very sobering realization when you’re about to speakRead more
