“Sherly, I got the part!” my client, Mary (not her real name), exclaimed on the phone, as she excitedly explained that she got the part in the pilot for which she was auditioning. I could almost see the tears of joy in her eyes. Quite different from the tears of frustration she shed only a few weeks earlier while lamenting her “dying career” and how she was a “failure” and hated her life.
We had a few Hypnotherapy sessions that helped her uncover the roots of her insecurities and fears and replaced them with confidence, strength and trust. She faced two primary issues. One was that she didn’t believe that she deserved success. The other was an insecurity that was initiated during her childhood. She felt that identifying these causes and replacing them with positive and empowering traits significantly helped her booked the show.
This turbulent emotional journey is quite common amongst actors, singers, writers and artists in general. I know it well through friends, clients and my own personal experience.
Artists (including entertainers, painters and writers), perhaps more than any other occupation, consistently place their creative hearts on their sleeves. They particularly thrive on the highs when they get the job and everything feels like it makes sense in that victorious moment. But when they don’t get that job that they really wanted or thought they would get, it can be utterly devastating. Some rejections may be accepted as part of the job. Actors know that they won’t get every role for which they audition. However, sometimes not getting a job can trigger some dark, deep-rooted beliefs of not being worthy or good enough. These beliefs are not exclusive to artists alone. Most people have this on some level.
Left to their own devices, these beliefs can haunt you throughout your life. They are there through various relationships and countless jobs.
