For you to realize a goal, you have to work real hard to attain it. You must do everything right from the preparation to the execution of every step that you have to take. This is very much true if you plan to pursue an acting career. If you really want it, nothing should stop you, not even your age, gender or even your nationality. What matters here is the hard work that you will put in attaining your aim and how you will overcome the hindrances that will block you along the way.
If it is motivation that you want to keep you going, here are some tips to help you move along.
1. Prepare for everything. Prepare yourself physically. You have to look your best at your every audition. To achieve this, you have to take care of yourself. Improve both on your physical and mental capacity. It will also help if you will practice rehearsing dialogues or plainly, speaking in front of many people. Your physical appearance is an investment. So if you have to spend money in order to enhance what needs to be done, do it for the purpose of looking fit and confident.
You must also be ready emotionally. You cannot get everything you want in an instant. You might experience a lot of rejections first even before you get your first callback. It will be best if while on the process of going through auditions, you have a part time job that can suffice your every day needs. You can also treat this phase as something fun and enjoyable. This way, you will not take the rejections too hard or too personal.
It will also help to be spiritually conditioned. This will help you accept the bad news that may come your way through the process. This will be your strength when you feel like giving up.
