“What’s YOUR Academy Award Winning Role”
Winning an Oscar for best actor/actress at the Academy Awards is a big thing.
The winners don’t get those leading roles by just hoping and wishing. Or, by trying something once and giving up. They persevere. They study. They try again and again and again…until they get it. Until it’s right. They constantly work at mastering their craft.
And you, are you playing a leading role? Or, a smaller less important role because you are you shrinking from…
- Lack of confidence— the “I’m-not-good-enough” syndrome.
- Lack of mastery—not having the right skill sets and good sustainable habits.
- Lack of clarity–confusion as to what your role should be.
- Lack of discipline, commitment and perseverance
Here are 4 steps to get your Oscar for a leading role:
- Start telling yourself a different story—Who is telling you that you aren’t good enough? You, that’s who. And it’s not true! Start owning your true value. If you don’t, no one else will. Your potential clients will feel your weak energy which will turn them off. To be in an Academy awarding winning role, you need to lead.
- Identify skills you need to have or improve upon. Actors study not only acting and interpretation skills, but also voice, dance, movement, for example. They stretch themselves. Where do you need to improve? Presentation skills? Do you need a great signature talk—live or for a webinar? Networking skills, sales conversations, or productivity systems? You will be drowned out by others who have and who continuously improve their skill set.
- If you are confused about your role to begin with then you won’t be able to attract anyone, because a confused mind does not buy. Also, if you are unclear, your message is garbled and your potential client won’t be able to “hear” you. Sit down and do some freewriting for 20 minutes a few times until you get clarity on : What is my message? Who am I to serve? What is my purpose?
- How many times do you think Meryl Streep practices her lines and her role? Until she gets it. That’s how many times. It takes discipline. A lot of it. It’s a commitment to her role, to her fellow actors, to the movie and the producers, to her fans, to her family and most important to how she shows up for herself. Excuses are easy. Excellence isn’t. But Oscars don’t go to those who take the easy route. They are given to those who strive for excellence.
You probably won’t get an Oscar, or even ever receive such a global recognition for your work. Yet, the clients you have helped will know the impact you have had on their lives. That’s priceless.
And, you will know in your heart that you did play a leading role that was deemed worthy of an Oscar. And to that, I say, “Congratulations!”
To an extraordinary YOU!
