#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!
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!
