What if you could retrain your brain to love your auditions?
THERE’S NO GETTING AROUND IT.
Auditions are stressful.
Whether it’s the last minute auditions, the preparation, the tense energy while we wait to be seen, the pre-audition jitters, nerves while we’re auditioning, the waiting, rejections, you name it. It’s a LOT.
At the same time, auditions lead us to the thing we love more than anything: sharing our art, in whatever form that may be.
You love what you do… so why don’t you love auditions?
There’s a simple explanation for this: your brain has learned and created an association between the idea of auditions and a stress response.
In neuroscience, we say “neurons that fire together wire together”, which is basically just a fancy way of saying that when there are two experiences happening at the same time, they become connected physically in the brain. So then the next time we experience one of those things, the brain reminds you of that association, and even anticipates the other experience.
Somewhere along the way, your brain accidentally wired the idea of auditions with stress.
And now, whenever you think about auditions, your brain thinks it’s helping you by reminding you of that stress, making you feel stressed in the moment.
But the great news?? Neurons that no longer fire together, no longer wire together.
This means that you can use brain training practices to undo that negative association, and get back to LOVING what you do. You can give yourself experiences that allow you to wire joy, gratitude, love, calm strength, and resilience with your auditions!
You can rewire your brain to LOVE your auditions!
