In this episode Justin talks authenticity in the audition room and how his son almost got him arrested. The big question of the discussion is how we can stop using manipulation to get the things that we want…and start exercising the muscle of authenticity and integrity instead.
In this Quick Hit episode, Justin shares an amazing piece of advice that 5-time Tony nominated director David Leveaux shared with him and the company of “Once Upon A One More Time” in a post-performance note session. The Musical Virus!
Does the grind of auditioning and the general “business of show” sometimes make you question why you made the choice to be a part of the entertainment rollercoaster lifestyle?
When you stop putting tons of pressure on yourself in auditions, you leave space for your unique genius to shine! In this episode, I use the example of my audition for the award winning “Lil’ Sweet” national commercial campaign to show you how letting go of all the conditions we put on ourselves in the room (the need for “perfection”, etc!!) can give us the permission we need to have fun and to let all the work that we’ve done (prep, classes, YEARS of schooling) shine though!!
If you’ve ever found yourself wishing you had the kind of success/money/fame/clothes/cars that other people…especially the “shiny” people we see on social media and in entertainment have…then you definitely want to listen to this episode. Justin breaks down the trap that is comparing your life and success (or lack thereof) to the life and success of your peers and the “shiny” people we’re bombarded by every day.
