Is your insecurity Sabotaging your acting Career?
Whether you are auditioning for a role or you have booked the job, there are many ways to get in your own way, but the bottom line is, when you strip out all the layers of self-sabotage, at the core of it is… You don’t feel like you are enough.
Has that thought ever entered your mind?
“I don’t feel like I’m enough.”
This is how that feeling of unworthiness gets reinforced over and over again. You are putting yourself out there. You don’t feel safe, you’re scared, and the stakes are high. The “not good enough” button gets pushed, and unfortunately, you sabotage yourself.
The possibility of hearing “no” triggers failure, disappointment, and intensifies the feeling of being less than. Your self-esteem is constantly taking hits. “They didn’t like me. They didn’t want me. I am not _____ enough.” You fill in the blank. Because you care, you take it personally and your heart breaks a little every time. This only strengthens those conscious or unconscious thoughts that you don’t deserve it.
That, “you are not enough,” has nothing to do with other people making you feel that way. It’s a feeling that has to do with you, and it comes from within—from your backstory.
The feeling of not being good enough is the tree. The branches are: “I am not talented, good-looking, slim, loving, deep enough, etc.”
The branches keep growing when you give people too much power.
You give up your power in many ways:
- You don’t prepare enough.
- You get too neurotic.
- You don’t trust yourself.
- You apologize too much.
- You’re not able to detach from the outcome of the audition.
The work that needs to be done begins with recognizing the wound that needs to be healed. You can be a proficient actor, armed with all the right tools, but until you acknowledge specifically what is stopping you, you will continue to get in your way time and time again.
You must identify what that feeling of inadequacy is tied to. The experience that you don’t deserve can be deep. But you have the power to reprogram your feelings, so as to not get in the way of your dreams.
Joining an acting school and taking acting classes and acting workshops in Los Angeles will help you go deeper into your work as an artist and keep you emotionally limber in between auditions.
LEARN THE BEST ACTING TECHNIQUES FOR FILM ACTING & AUDITIONING

Those techniques and tools can be used when approaching a role or a scene, for film, television, or theater. The Acting School’s acting techniques are based on Meisner, Strasberg, Adler, Hagen, Chekhov & the Stanislavsky Technique.
