What Do We Do When We Get Stuck? How Do We Get Back On Track?

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been in your career for a year or for twenty years… we all get stuck from time to time. Maybe it’s a rejection that cuts a little too deep, the fear of not knowing how to do something, the fear of failure, the fear of success, a conversation in our head that tells us we can’t, or that the time’s not right, or that we’re too old, or the economy is bad. Whatever it is for you, it feels real and true and most importantly, it stops you!The best goals, intentions, timelines, strategic plans… they all go out the window when we’re stuck. What do we do? How do we handle it? How do we get back on track? And how do we get back on track quickly?Hollywood Producer, Suzanne Lyons had a friend who, during an audition, had a bad experience where the director was very rude to her. It was three months before she went on another audition. Lyon and her producing partner had a similar situation happen.

They had successfully produced films in other countries and were planning to produce a first film here in the U.S. “We did a fantastic business plan and movie poster, had a great investor’s package, had everything organized and were ready to go out to investors. That was December of 2004. All of a sudden it was March 1st 2005! I had gone unconscious about the project and didn’t even know that I was stuck. The fear of raising the money stopped me cold!”Getting stuck from time to time is inevitable. The question is, how do we deal with it and how do we get back on track in record time. Here are a few ideas from some of Lyon’s entertainment industry guests. They’ve experienced being stuck first hand and they have some valuable advice for us.CREATE A VISUAL DISPLAY:CEO of Now Casting, Bob Steward feels that having your goals clearly plotted and broken down into a timeline with milestones is key. “But most importantly,” he says, “have it clearly visible at all times. That way you’ll stay conscious and engaged in your career and you’ll notice if something is wrong. So you’ll find out ‘oh, my foot’s stuck’ as opposed to ‘holy cow, I’m knee deep in quicksand.'”KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE:Actress Mary Stein says that for her the best and fastest way to get unstuck is a daily practice of staying in touch with her vision. “Stay focused on the big picture,” she says, “and keep your eye on the prize.”FACT VERSUS FICTION:Director/Writer Mark Rosman suggests that we look at the facts. “When I notice that I’m stuck,” he says, “I look at what is the story that I’m telling myself and I write it down.

For example, after a producer called and said he didn’t want to option my script, I thought, oh, I’m not talented enough… I can’t write dialogue, and a whole ton of crazy things went through my mind. I wrote the long list on a piece of paper and then I compared it to the facts. The fact was, that producer didn’t want my script… period! That was the fact. So instead of looking at my interpretations of what I made it all mean, I decided to just look at the facts. All the drama disappeared in an instant and I got back on the phone and started pitching again.”HAVE AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER:Comedy Central Executive Kris Emery suggests that we have a buddy that we stay in touch with on a regular basis. Kris and her accountability partner speak (or blog) daily or weekly supporting each other with their goals and all the ups and downs that go along with reaching them. And they’ve been doing this for over 20 years!IT’S A GOOD THING! IT MEANS YOU’RE GETTING BIGGER:So says TV and feature writer Alison Lea Bingeman. She believes that “if you’re stuck, that means that you are breaking through to some new ground… some new level. She says that “there’s something new that you’re learning and that you’re processing and that you’ll come out on the other side with a lot more knowledge and a lot more wisdom.”We are all going to get stuck from time to time, whether from internal reasons or external sources. It happens. The question is… for how long are you willing to stay stuck? Minutes, days, weeks, years? How about seconds? Wouldn’t that be a whole lot better? Let’s cut down, way down, on the time we spend being stopped and stuck. Start using these suggestions and get masterful at getting back on track immediately.

The Benefits of Modeling Outside of Large Cities

Traditionally, when you think of the major markets for the modeling industry, you probably focus on places like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and although it’s a bit on the smaller side, Miami. While yes, locations such as these can be a hotbed for the modeling scene, that certainly doesn’t mean they are the only options for aspiring models.If fact contrary to what some might believe, the industry can and does thrive in smaller and/or less traditionally glamorous locations. “Why?,” you may ask. Well, there are a lot of reasons.In these mega-metropolis locations, it is probably more likely than not that apprising models will simply be just another face in the crowd – a number if you will. Those who stand out are the exception and not the rule and it doesn’t even necessarily have anything to do with their beauty or talent.Conversely, in a less notable city like Austin, Texas or my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for example, the atmosphere can be quite different.

Models, photographers and those who might hire them get to know each other as people and this can be good business for everyone.Another issue that can arise is the challenge of obtaining quality gigs. Sure, the opportunities typically pay much more in L.A. than Cleveland, Ohio for example, but there is a catch. Being just a number in L.A., a model might be able to find one $500 paying job in the same time frame in which she could book five jobs paying $150 each in Cleveland, totaling $750. Basically, you can make up the pay difference in volume of work.The larger markets, although starting to catch up with certain changes within the modeling industry, often still tend to emphasize on old ideal. While this may be just fine for the blonde bombshell with blue eyes who is 5’9″ and wears a size two, that leaves a lot of people out. There is a new and growing acceptance and desire for beautiful women who might be a bit on the short side, sport tattoos, don’t necessarily have D-cup breasts or are involved with gothpics.

These ladies often do better in smaller markets.Last but not least, chances are a model can become an industry celebrity of sorts in a place like Raleigh, North Carolina more readily than she might in a place like New York. And, with the Internet being such a powerful force for publicity these days, that level of celebrity can be extended throughout a state, a nation or even globally no matter where you live or work.Ultimately, despite working in a small market, the advantages can actually be quiet big. If you think you are interested in working in a smaller market then you should take the time to explore your options. The fact of the matter is that you will soon see that there are plenty of opportunities available for you in these smaller markets. Who knows- maybe a smaller market is exactly what you need in order to get your career off to a hot start?

The Silliest Celebrity Scandals in Recent History

The merry-go-around of celebrity news moves on at incredible speed, producing sensational stories that range in quality and content. Since the industry has never had aspirations to tremendous intellectual depth, it often banks on other qualities, especially the entertainment value and shock value of their output. Readers and viewers who keep track of celebrity antics are usually interested in having a good laugh or peeking backstage where they can see more of the glossy world of the famous, the rich and the fortunate. In this environment, it is no surprise that quite a large proportion of celebrity scandals are rather silly, if you take a closer look. They prove even more so once some time goes by and no one seems to remember what the outrage was all about. But probably, the silliest stories are those that produce a massive reaction from the public, grow so big that they dominate the headlines for a couple of days and then disappear without a trace, as it nothing had happened.

There is some inherently comic quality in the fact that the public indignation that surrounds them dies out so fast despite the proportions it first acquires.One good illustration of this sort of event is what happened to Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson when her breast was revealed, accidentally or with cunning premeditation, no one really knows, in what became the most famous wardrobe malfunction in history. As a combination of a few factors coincided, mainly the fact that the event was being broadcast during the Super Bowl final, the interracial undertones and the explicit sexual power of the incident, the scandal sent shivers of moral discomfort down the spines of millions of Americans. Its more long-term impact was rather modest and beyond stricter regulations that ban any hint of sexual content from the Super Bowl evening, little has changed. This disproportion between the immediate splash the Nipplegate produced and its fading into insignificance in the following months is indeed comic.Celebrity gossip websites were still in their infancy when the news broke that somebody released Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tapes on the Internet.

Anyone who appreciated the well-endowed lifeguard from the Baywatch could have a section of her intimacy with her newly-wed rock star husband. This has been long overshadowed by the more explicit sexual content that can be easily accessed on the Internet, including webcam antics by wannabe celebrities, but at that time the public reaction was intense. It was a topic of hushed conversations from high schools to workplaces, but it died out as abruptly as it was unleashed on the general public. From today’s perspective it does look rather silly.No one could see it coming that Britney Spears would go through a major meltdown, but she did, in front of the whole world. It was confusing, embarrassing and silly at the same time to watch the beautiful pop singer enter the path of self-destruction. These constant images and stories of what she did and what she did not do pumped her to such an extent that she transformed into an unreal figure mixing comedy with tragic.
