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!

National Wear Red Day – Go Red for Women

Wear Red on the first Friday of February to show support for heart disease awareness for women.

MAX Agency would like to help spread awareness for heart disease in North America this month. 

The first Friday of February is National Wear Red Day, a holiday dedicated to raising awareness for heart disease. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in Canada while 2/3 of research is focused on men. 

National Wear Red Day was established by the American Heart Association and National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute in 2003. The day is celebrated annually by wearing red color to represent the fight against heart disease and stroke in an effort to generate awareness and initiate change. By the 13th anniversary of the National Wear Red Day, the campaign had achieved many positive goals including these statistics: more than 33% of women in America have lost weight and more than 50% of American women are more physically active.” (source)

This initiative can also go by a different name, Go Red for Women, although the meaning is the same. 

“It’s no longer just about wearing red; it’s no longer just about sharing heart health facts. It’s about all women making a commitment to stand together with Go Red and taking charge of their own heart health as well as the health of those they can’t bear to live without. Making a commitment to your health isn’t something you have to do alone either, so grab a friend or a family member and make a Go Red Healthy Behavior Commitment today.” (source)

The Canadian version of the campaign is Wear Red Canada which will be taking place on February 13th, 2019. Find out more information about it here!

3 Key Messages to Remember and Share:

1. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women worldwide and it affects women of all ages. That means 1 in 3 women will die as a result of heart disease or stroke.

2. Heart attacks go unrecognized in women up to 54% of the time. When in doubt, check it out! NEVER delay getting help for your symptoms. Be sure to ask your doctor if your symptoms could be heart-related. Women’s heart attack symptoms can be different from men’s and often include:

  • chest pain or discomfort
  • pain in your back
  • neck, jaw or arm
  • stomach pain
  • shortness of breath, nausea
  • sweating
  • unusual fatigue

3. Heart disease is largely preventable – 80% of risk factors are within your control to change! Know your numbers for waist circumference, blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar. Reduce your risk by:

  • exercising for at least 30 minutes a day
  • maintaining a healthy diet
  • watching your weight
  • getting regular checkups if possible
  • stopping smoking
  • managing stress
  • limiting alcohol intake
