Hope you’re having a fabulous day…wanted to share a story with you.
I recently booked a gig for a show on E! called STYLE STAR. It will be airing on E! International in 160 countries then on Style Network here in the states.
I was hired as a Style Expert to give my opinion on celebrity fashion. I’ll be on 3 episodes and maybe more in the future…horray!
Something very cool happened on this shoot last Friday…Though I’ve done some on-camera hosting before, I’ve never been on camera as “an expert” and I think that term psyched me out a bit. I was doubting my fashion knowledge and whether I was good enough to do this. Then came the voice in my head saying “the other people they hired are editors of magazines and celebrity stylists…you’re not as good as them… You suck” Ugh! I hate that voice.
But instead of listening to that voice and getting into the “I SUCK” drama of it all…I took a deep breathe, felt what was going on in my body, looked around the room, and quietly said to myself those magic Committed Impulse words, “I’m back.”
I was instantly back in the moment, confident and excited about the job at hand. I knew I could do it and do it well. “It worked!” I thought to myself.
It worked so well in fact, that before I was even wrapped, the Executive Producer of the show contacted my agent saying they will definitely have me back. YES!
Needless to say, it was a job saver to use what I learned from Josh Pais in Committed Impulse.
I was still nervous during the first 5 minutes or so of the shoot, but the poo poo voice in my head had stopped and I just did the job. I “got busy” as Joshy would say and it felt great!
Wanted to share that with you all, because it was super exciting and a real “aha” moment.
All for now.
Have a great week!
