Stay Grounded


Artistry matters and I can find it in everything I do. 

The person who deserves love and forgiveness most, is myself. 

To get to where I need to be, be courteously aggressive. 

My identity is unique, it infuses my work for performances nobody else can deliver. 

Just. Say. Yes!


If you have The Positive Path for Actors, How to Stop Second-Guessing Your Talent & Start Kicking Ass In Your Career by Shari Shaw, you’ll have read these guidelines and many more to stay grounded as you rise to the top.


Staying grounded doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate your wins, but it is a reminder that booking the job is not the end result, but just another starting line. A starting line that you get to grow again, challenge yourself, push forward in getting better and better at your craft.


Another reminder as you rise to the top?

It becomes more than just the craft. You gotta be someone people like work with and enjoy being around. Your behavior will always affect your success and when you start with being a positive person, it will radiate to others around you. It may seem like the easiest thing in the world, but sometimes it can be difficult and you’ve got to keep going. And you CAN do it. It will make a difference in the long run.


All in all, celebrate booking the job! Then remember to stay grounded with a positive attitude as this is a step in the journey. We want a career, not a one-off experience. Use the guidelines above and the ones in The Positive Path to keep you focused.

As always, you’ve got this!
