1. Leverage the power of labels
How would it feel if you ‘consciously’ chose to label all audition experiences as ‘gifts’ – regardless of whether the experience was good or bad?
2. Ask yourself powerful questions
“How did that audition serve me?”, “What have I just learnt?”, “What worked and how can I improve next time?”.
