The Hollywood Rules
Hollywood is where filmmakers, actors, directors, and artists – from around the world – have been dreaming about for over a century. Every day, some of the best actors and artists come to Hollywood with the hope to succeed. If you want to work with the very best, Hollywood is the place to be. Unfortunately, most people who come here don’t succeed. Why is that? Well, there are two reasons. It’s because they have never learned the “5 Rules of Hollywood”, and they never found an acting coach or mentor who could show them what Hollywood expects from them as actors.
These rules below will make all the difference in your success in this industry.
1. “WHAT WILL I GIVE?” NOT, “WHAT WILL I GET?”
Most people come to L.A. to get things. Hollywood will not respond to you unless you are ready to give something. The people in this industry can see this needy energy and sense of entitlement instantly. Trust me! The more you’re willing to share, offer, and present, the more excited and interested people will be in you. Come with a giving mindset.
2. “HOLLYWOOD RUNS ON ENERGY.”
If you don’t have positive energy radiating out of your body, you will be unemployed because energy is Hollywood’s currency. The successful artists I have met, for the most part, are very nice, professional, and have the energy I want to be around. Enthusiastic behavior will attract the right people into your career and life. Artists who are considerate and keep improving themselves, their craft, and sharing their gifts will attract more of the same. Enthusiastic behavior attracts the right people to your life and career.
3. “YOU ATTRACT WHO YOU ARE.”
You never attract who you want. If you are a superficial person and you come to Hollywood, you’re going to meet a lot of superficial people. In life, you always meet the kind of person you are. If you have negative friends then you had better look at yourself in the mirror, because like attracts like. Positive people will meet other positive people. You must be the type of person you’re seeking to be around! What changes do I need to make in myself to attract the people I want to work with? We don’t live in the world of our wishes. We live in a world we attract, create, build, and nurture.
4. “LIVE YOUR AUTHENTICITY.”
Be courageous enough to be your true self. This is not an easy thing to do, because many people tell you that who you are will never be good enough. Renowned artists share their authentic selves with the world. Know that your true self will keep progressing because you learn, grow, and expand.
“Be YOU – because everyone else is taken!”
5. “BE GRATEFUL.”
One of the things that Hollywood likes is gratitude. It embraces people who appreciate others for their efforts and kindness. I have noticed that stars and other successful people in this industry are thankful to others for helping them. I find that most of the people at the top are caring individuals. They tell me that they feel fortunate to have a job and grateful to be in this business. Most realize that it’s not just about being a star, but how they can help others.
