Fantasy can become a liability.

It can become a crutch, “one day I'll ______”

You keep pushing to the future and you don’t deal with the reality of what needs to happen NOW.

Spiral it out to get to the seed of what you really want.

  • Why do you want to become an actor?
  • Well, why do you love acting?
  • Continue to break down the reason.
  • Continue asking why.
  • Then what is the reality for me around this want?

Fantasy can also destroy the good seed of why you want to do it.

It’s your ego. It takes away the beauty.

  1. Acting training
  2. Business skills
  3. Core work
