“The will to succeed is important, but what’s more important is the will to prepare.” – Bobby Knight

So if it ever comes down to “What do I do now?” going back to the core–the foundation–is preparation. Studying, training, researching–anything you need in order to feel prepared, do it. Because when you feel prepared, you have self-confidence. And let’s say that a casting director gives you a note. You’ll have the preparation and self-confidence to try it a different way.

And then, if you find that you needed to prepare more, then prepare more next time. It’s all inter connected…
