Have you ever experienced a setback or failure and had a tough time regaining your confidence?
An actor friend recently confessed, “I had this really, really awful experience on set 4 months ago and I haven’t been able to recover since. The director yelled at me in front of the whole crew. I lost my lines and couldn’t deliver what he wanted. It was a nightmare. It’s like a record scratch in my psyche and I can’t seem to get over it.”
My heart broke for her. She’s experienced and talented. She’s open hearted and self-aware. But no matter what she’s tried, this one creative catastrophe crushed her confidence, and her ability to fully get back in the game.
We’re all sensitive souls. Sometimes seemingly minor setbacks that our minds tell us should be “no big deal” can sink our self-confidence and hold us back from our dreams.
