Why is this LifeMap is relevant to actors?
How often do you put something off? How often does ‘resting’ become literally that …. a big long rest!
As actors we are very re-active, we wait for someone else to do the work for us. We wait for a director to tell us how to make the lines sound, how we should think about our character. We wait for an agent to look for work for us, to submit us for jobs, and to deal with negotiations and contracts. These are all neccessities of the job and role, but they can make us fall into a very re-active state and sometimes the last thing we think about it being pro-active.
It’s natural in the job we are in, it’s not to be punished, but once you realise it then you can do something to change it.
This map will help you to become more pro-active in life, to take back control and to start to follow the path you want to follow.
We all need a map sometimes to help us find the route from A to B.
