    The Process of Getting to Know Your Worth with Psychotherapist, Mervin Maier

    The Process of Getting to Know Your Worth with Psychotherapist, Mervin Maier

    #016 In today’s episode, Psychotherapist, Mervin Maier walks us through the process of getting to know your worth as an actor in your everyday life and when you don’t book a job.  He shares where our limiting beliefs around worthiness stem from, how one can cultivate a deep rooted feeling of their own self worth and how to support yourself as an actor.  We also talk about having radical acceptance around not getting booked time after time.

    This conversation you will want to tune into.  Take a listen.

    Affirmations:

    I accept myself for who I am

    Without question

    Without analysis

    Without judgment

    And without limitation



    I ACCEPT MYSELF FOR WHO I AM

    UNCONDITIONALLY

    WITH READINESS

    WITH EXCITEMENT

    WITH CONFIDENCE

    AND

    WITH DETERMINATION

A New Perspective on Pursuing an Acting Career

A much-needed voice to help actors better prioritize their personal health and well-being to support their acting career, not the other way around. As a former actor, I know all too well the messaging from most acting teachers, casting directors, agents & managers - that you need to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to make it, and the pursuit of your career should take precedence over any other areas of your life (personal well-being, family life, downtime, vacation, etc.). Talia has a very compassionate actor-as-a-person first, and actor second, arguing that you can’t show up your best in the audition room if the other areas of your life are being neglected. Some of it may feel backwards based on conventional wisdom, but as you listen to each episode, the logic in her approach is undeniable. The Actor’s Flow illustrates a different approach to your acting career that allows for more happiness, freedom, and success.
