“Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.” -Dale Carnagie
I have auditioned for several summer stock theatres and other jobs for the summer and been unsuccessful in getting cast. Now something I was worried about when I decided to persue performing as a career was would I still love performing even when I am not working? Well guess what I STILL DO!! In fact something I have learned since not getting the work that I want to is that this buisness isn't about how talented you are its about what you are right for. It just so happens that I wasn't right for the shows I have auditioned for, but that doesn't discourage me, it makes me want to perform even MORE!! I have learned to love auditions. I mean why not enjoy them?? I get to have a little one man show for three people and then learn a way fun dance!! where is the down side? So although I wish I was getting cast in more shows, I am greatful for the learning opportunities I have had these past few weeks!
