In my previous blog, I introduced you to the top 3 questions you
need to ask when branding yourself successfully.
Well here is your opportunity to take an exciting FIRST STEP to manifesting your
career goals and branding success.
This is your official CALL TO ACTION!
I want you to take a simple yet incredibly powerful action TODAY!
Your mission should you choose to accept it:
MAKE A SHORT VIDEO no longer than 1 – 1.5 minutes long. In this video say
your name and identify what the branding qualities you have that you think
make you unique. Then state what you want to do and what your 3-year goal is.
For example, “Hi! my name is Benson Simmonds. I have a quiet strength, depth and vulnerability. I’m warm, intelligent, grounded and charming. I have a strong sense of purpose and play men with conviction who will do what it takes to do what they
believe is right (with a sense of humor). I want to play strong characters in indie films that have both drama and a sense of humor (like Little Miss Sunshine, Silver Linings Playbook, Another Happy Day, Looper) and recurring roles on cable shows like Homeland and Nurse Jackie. My 3 year goal is to win a best supporting Oscar and Golden Globe for my work in an indie feature.”
In the comments section below, leave the link to your video on youtube or vimeo so other people can watch it!
Just by recording the video and putting it out there, you will be taking “one small step for you and one giant leap for your career” (Those of you who get the Neil Armstrong reference get more points!!)
Then feel free to leave comments of support to your fellow actors and reap the rewards of both publicly proclaiming your brand qualities and goals, as well as the rewards of taking the time to watch and support other actors!
Let me know what it felt like when you were recording the video and when you were making it public. Were you excited, scared, wary, doubtful, hopeful, etc?
Whatever your initial feelings, there is a tremendous power in taking the action to proclaim your goals publicly.
Have fun and let the process begin! Congratulations for taking this first step to achieving your dream career!
all the best and blessings
