Like I mentioned in a post a few weeks ago (My Inbox) it is so important to celebrate every little victory we get along the way. (If we don’t, I’d imagine we’d go insane– constantly feeling like we’re getting nowhere and that life sucks).
On the drive to an audition this morning I realized that the auditions I am driving to are slowly but surely becoming more and more… what’s the word I’m looking for… high profile? I was thinking about it, and the last 3 commercial auditions I’ve got were for Nike, Wells Fargo and Ray Ban. I did not get these kinds of auditions right off the bat, and I have to remember (when I’m down and out about not getting enough auditions, or not booking, etc) that this is progress. Getting these kinds of auditions– even if they’re not every day– is success. It is a victory!
And I’m sure, somewhere down the line, I’ll be writing a post referring back to this one and how “now I’m getting national auditions all the time”, or “now I’m booking commercials” and that will be just as much a victory as the one I am celebrating today.
