The Ultimate Question…

Let’s talk about the…

Ultimate Question

Well, the ultimate question when it comes to creativity.

Getting it right when it comes to this question will literally give you creative freedom…

How can I change what I feel to fit the scene I am about to act?
or
How can I change what I feel to fit the situation I am about to walk into?

These questions are often asked with a sense of panic because our minds often tell us that what we are feeling will produce horrendous outcomes.

I’m here to tell you that nothing could be further from the truth.

Let’s examine this for a moment.

Your audience – whether you are an actor or entrepreneur or artist – you have an audience – wants one thing.

YOUR TRUTH.

Whether you are closing a business deal, making a presentation, shooting a movie or auditioning…

Your audience wants YOU.

Not some amped up or amped down version of you.

They want you – exactly how you are in that actual moment.

Why?

Because if they sense you are speaking from your truth – their nervous system relaxes – and they can engage in a creative way with you.

When you hide, suppress, over-express, manipulate yourself into what you think is ideal – people’s nerves systems go on edge – and they will be triggered into their heads and away from their hearts and creativity.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Connecting to what you’re feeling is NOT the same as having a drama about what you are feeling.

SO WHAT SHOULD THE QUESTION BE?

The real question is…

How does what I feel make perfect sense for the scene?
or
How does what I feel to fit the situation I am about to walk into?

This may take some creativity on your part – but there is always a way to discover that what you’re feeling is perfect.

Always.

This may be slightly disturbing in the beginning – but if you play around with this – you will be liberated to be exactly YOU.

Have a beautiful week!

If you want to put this question into play…

Self Talk vs. Presence

There’s something I’ve been hearing a lot of lately when I’m coaching actors and other creatives. Something that does NOT serve the creative process. I often hear when, let’s say an actor is in the audition room, and inside their head they’re ( often frantically) saying, “I’m doing great.” “This is going well.” “I deserveRead more…

UNHOOKING

Every year I do a 4 week experiment. No Facebook No Twitter & No Instagram A week before I do this I usually got a lil panicky. What, no Instagram? But then as my Day 1 approaches I take the time to examine what my experience is when I am on Social Media. Embarrassing toRead more…

When It Feels… Just Wrong

You ever go into a situation and it feels like everything is just…wrong? The vibe is horrible. Fierce competitive energy is in the air. And, worse, now you need to create with an open heart and mind. Jaclyn posted this story on the Committed Impulse Facebook page last week – and with her permission she’sRead more…

Why Do We Prevent Our Best Work From Coming Out?

Working with thousands of actors, artists, doctors, coaches and entrepreneurs, I notice that we all have areas that we keep hidden from others – and from ourselves. And what I find fascinating is that when those hidden areas are no longer held tight – presence and creativity abound. TO BE CLEAR… The stories, the incidents,Read more…

Maybe (Definitely) It’s Time for a Creative Upgrade

Every once in a while it’s important to take a look at how we create, and why. It’s key to see if we are stuck in comfortable patterns that don’t challenge us to do our best work. Similarly, its important to look at what has influenced us – and if those influences are optimal andRead more…

YOUR CREATIVE MANIFESTO

My Dear Friend In tumultuous times… What is asked of the artist? That she speaks from her truth. That he creates from his soul. That every sound, every movement, every word, every image is offered as if it were that artists last act on earth. The masses look to the artist for a signal, aRead more…
