Voice Actor, Coach and Author
When pursuing your voice acting dreams, be sure to focus on where you want to be - not where you are right now.
If you donít have a picture in your head of what your success will look like, you may never get there.
Most of us worry too much about the dreaded hows of life:
"What I say to actors when they say, should I study. I say, yes. What else are you going to do?Ē Hoffman says.
That is it. Studying is the most important thing you can do. So donít worry about that microphone just yet. Go and study with the people you admire.
Study and apply what you learn, and continue to pursue your VO dreams every day.
PAINT IN THE DETAILS
When your dreams come into focus, paint in some details in your mind's eye and make it all yours.
You need to see yourself already there, doing what you love and always having more than enough. For instance:
WHAT'S YOUR DREAM?
Maybe for you, that dream is waking the kids in the morning ... feeding them breakfast and taking them to school ... then a workout ... come home, shower and get ready for a day of interpreting copy for all of the clients that you will have - knocking out five auditions a day for your agent and another 10 a day from your other job sources.
These feelings of living your dream before it happens will propel you into the life you want.
Dream it, see it, and work every day toward that dream - and donít worry about the hows! Thatís when the Universe will show up with the magic and miracles that shift everything into place.
So live your dream and use your voice! Break a lip! I mean it.
