Tip Tuesday – The Power of Positivity

#TipTuesday is a series MAX Agency — one of the top Toronto talent agencies  — does every week where we share helpful tips for the industry. This could be tips on auditions, bookings, beauty, fashion and more!

 

A positive mind-frame is necessary for any line of work, especially the talent industry!

 

 

While acting and modelling may be daunting at times with auditions, etc., positivity towards yourself and your talent is important.

 

Here are some tips to maintain a positive mind-frame! 

1. Self-Affirmations

Use positive language!  Reinforce positivity within by using verbal language to encourage yourself.  Talk to yourself in the mirror, even if you feel silly, with statements like, “Today will be a good day” or “I’m going to be awesome today.” You’ll be amazed how much your day improves.  This can be incredibly beneficial before auditions to set your mind frame right! 

 

2. Focus on the Present

I’m talking about the present—not today, not this hour, only this exact moment.  While preparation for any audition or casting is important, to alleviate unnecessary stress, focus on the “now”.  By focusing on the present, you hold the power to eliminate negative thoughts brought on from worrying, being stressed, etc.  As #1 states, use self-affirmations to stay in this zone of the present.  

Many of the most successful models today have been through exactly what you’re going through. Everybody (models or not) starts somewhere, and for many models, this “somewhere” is the often challenging road to getting scouted, discovered, and hired as a model.

 

3. Turn Failures into Lessons

Within any line of work, there will be some stress.  Look on the bright side of any experience.  Use any mistakes as lessons to push forward and improve!  Reminding yourself to not sweat the small stuff is so important to move forth.  While you may not be able to go back in time, you hold the power for your future – you can only go up!

Showcase Saturday – Ruchi W.

“Make demos in high school, do anything acting related that you can, so that when you are in the position to show it to someone that can work with you on getting into the industry, you have all the materials for success.”

 

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at MAX Agency —  a successful Toronto talent agency representing men, women and children.

This week we’ll be showcasing the amazingly hardworking talent on our roster: 

 Ruchi W!

An introduction to Ruchi:

“I was born in California but then moved to Nigeria. My family is originally Nigerian on my mum’s side, so we lived there for a while. When I was 9 years old, I went to boarding school in Switzerland and lived there until I came to Canada a few years ago for university.

Visit Ruchi’s website!

It is difficult to specifically pinpoint a place that I am from, as there are people who are genuinely from these countries that I have been to at different stages of my life, and lived there all their lives. I love having been a part of so many different cultures, as I can relate to people from different areas in the world.

I am an actor, singer-songwriter and producer, and have been working on my craft since I received a piano at the age of five. It’s a great experience to bring all the cultures I love around the world into one piece of art. I am also a film writer; I have written a few short and feature-length films, and am working on getting them made. I got into film writing because I enjoy being involved in all aspects of the creative process.”

How did you get into modelling/acting?

I got into acting through watching a lot of television as a child and enjoying the process of being able to play someone completely different to you. I then got into theatre when I was nine, and eventually made the transition into film and TV when I was 17.

Acting always felt like a job that I could see the results from hard work being put into a role, and entertain other people while doing so. Thus far, I have thoroughly enjoyed everything I have seen.”

How has your experience been with MAX?

“MAX has been very kind to me since I got with the agency. They treat all their talent fairly and give us the attention we need.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

“I write films, produce/write music and play video games during my spare time.”

 

What is your dream role?

“Probably a role on one of the films I’ve written, or a lead role in a long-lasting successful movie franchise or TV show.”

Best advice for someone looking to get into the industry?

Do as much of it by yourself/with friends as possible. Make demos in high school, do anything acting related that you can, so that when you are in the position to show it to someone that can work with you on getting into the industry, you have all the materials for success.
