It’s almost Valentine’s Day, that day when we reach out to loved ones to tell them how much they mean to us, how lucky we are to have them in our lives, etc. But what about showing YOURSELF a little love this Valentine’s Day?
No, I’m not talking about buying yourself some exorbitant gift (although, heck, if you want to, I say go for it!), but what I’m really talking about is being good to yourself, knowing and believing that you are good, maybe even GREAT!
Let’s face it: in this industry, we get rejected a lot. And at some point it’s bound to sting a little, or have a negative impact on our self-esteem. But this Valentine’s Day, I say DOWN WITH THE NEGATIVE!
I’m reminded of something my awesome voiceover coach, Nancy Wolfson, so often says: Don’t read the specs. You have to believe that what they’re really looking for is YOU. So don’t kill yourself trying to sound like John Krasinski or Allison Janney, just BE YOU, and BELIEVE that YOU are good enough. Heck, not only “good enough,” but that YOU ARE the one PERFECT person that that spot needs!
Let’s try it this Valentine’s Day. Let’s hear it for an overabundance of self-esteem! Let’s gush with positivity! And let’s see what happens as a result…I’d love to hear from you about your experience!
