As an aspiring performer the most important decision that you will need to make is the active choice that this is what you want to do for the rest of your life. It's beyond making a choice. It's making a commitment to yourself. No one can make it for you. You need to believe it completely, because you will be tested in every way imaginable. Making a conscious decision will ready you for what's ahead. And get ready, because there's a lot that goes into being a "true" professional performer or "artist".
Becoming a performer is not just about talent or ability, ninety percent is perseverance, along with training, dedication, gratitude, networking, and a long list of things which we will cover later on.
Most of the people I have met that have had a successful career in show business, are not necessarily the most talented. More often than not, the successful ones are the hardest working, the ones with "heart", the ones who don't give up, the ones who train and train and train, and the ones who are grateful. They succeed because they simply love what they do, and they've made an active choice.
The question is: are you ready to Make a Choice?
