Fear: He’s a pesky little guy…

5 Jan

I’m scared.

Just because I’ve decided to pursue acting, does not mean that I’m not afraid of it. Very, very afraid. But I believe most people starting out in their careers, whatever those may be, have fears around it. Going after what you want can be a scary thing. And that’s ok! It’s healthy to have these feelings. In fact, I think it’s an important part of the beginning stages.

These are some of my fears around acting:

  • Will I ever become a successful actor?
  • Will I ever make a living off of acting?
  • Am I attractive enough?
  • Am I good enough?
  • Am I talented at all?
  • Is my dream really a career or is it actually a hobby?
  • Am I wasting my time?
  • Are people judging me, as just another actor in LA who’ll never make it?
  • Can I survive this lifestyle?

Some days are better than others. Sometimes I will feel so confident and know that no matter what I will achieve success. And other times all these fears creep in. But no matter how often I feel afraid, I never doubt my dream.




What are your fears?
