Many people say ‘I make resolutions, but never keep them’. As an actor, your resolutions don’t have to just be about the regular New Year’s promises, they can be goals you set out for your career or even starting your career! No matter where they are in their career, Actors need to set themselves goals for their skills, CV and creativity. It is the setting and accomplishment of goals that will allow you to find breakthroughs and maybe even that life changing role. Having a goals set and in mind provides a consistent motivation for an acting career. Here are a few small tips on how to set your goals this year.
Make appropriate and reasonable goals. We all want to be the top of our field, but when you are starting in the industry or building your CV, your goals need to be within reasonable reach. If your goal is something that you cannot take steps to achieve or is something that is completely out of anyone’s control, you will not reach it. Set yourself up for a successful goal to grow that confidence. Once you reach your first goal, you will set more and keep advancing and see yourself building a new range, skill or even just getting something creative accomplished.
These tips are just the beginning of making and accomplishing your goals. Start with something small today and keep your goals growing and moving forward for your career and you will begin to see the results! The most motivated and active actors are the ones who feel the accomplishment in themselves and their career so go and make one goal today, no matter what the size of that goal may be for your acting career!
