How An Actor To Build Confidence


  • To start with, do a SWOT Analysis of your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats and write down on a table.


1. Work Hard on:


  • Further strengthening your strengths;
  • On overcoming your weaknesses and turning them into your + points;
  • Develop a strategy to avoid threats, which means working hard on alternate options and solutions; probably threats are due to some of your weaknesses
  • Always thinks of opportunities you have and benefits you will have if you exploit opportunities!


2. Further work on:
  • On developing your skills, excellence, and knowledge. Join a coach, a school and attend workshop regularly.
  • Set Time bound Goals: ie in 2 years, 1 year, 6 months, This and next month. Then prepare an action plan starting from the achievement of long-term objectives narrowing it down to the current month. Then work on schedules ie weekly, daily and so on.
  • Only think of positives.

3. Always think of good things


  • Ask others what you can do for them. Don't expect too much and always from others.
  • Join Yoga, Gym, Dancing and music classes. These activities will help you to develop a positive and cheerful mind apart from adding in your acting craft.
  • Attend shows, theater, music shows and events.


4. Do what interests you


  • Identify your successes since childhood, even small ones. Recollect them offer and smile.
  • Don't worry about the outcome of your efforts: For example, go for an audition as an event to enjoy and as a part of your training. Do your best, come out and celebrate your effort with a cup of tea or a drink either with your friends or alone, thinking good and smiling. In another word- CELEBRATE every small effort, not only an achievement!


5. Be aggressive


  • Develop a habit of "Barging in" (Pushing in)
  • Meet strangers; Talk and interact with everybody. However, while talking, always talk what others may like;
  • Tell a person without hesitation if he/she offends or negates you. Be frank. Don't worry about the outcome!


6. STOP your wandering

By instructing your mind by saying "stop" or count backward from 10 to 1. Focus and concentrate

8. Analyze your day

Start writing down a day's activities before you go to bed. What you have achieved and what you couldn't.

9. Smile and smile

Develop a habit of "Smiling" most of the time. Try this forcibly and consequently, it will become your habit.

The world doesn't accept soft spoken people. They are considered as "Timid"


11. Must consider and do

  • 11Make decisions every day and follow irrespective of consequences.
  • Always think of bright future ahead you
  • Learn to accept "You are wrong"
  • Mind your body language. To be confident walk and talk confidently even if you are shitting in your pants! After all, you are an actor. Just fake it!

Positive Mental Food To Be A Successful Actor And Happy In Life



  • Just as your body is healthy to the degree to which you eat healthy, nutritious foods, your mind is healthy to the degree to which you feed it with “mental protein” rather than “mental candy.”
  • Read books, magazines, and articles that are educational, inspirational, or motivational. Feed your mind with information and ideas that are uplifting and that make you feel happy and more confident about yourself and your world.
  • Listen to positive, constructive CDs and audio programs on your MP3 player, Mobile or iPod. Feed your mind continually with positive messages that help you think and act better and make you more capable and competent in your field.
