Tenacity & Perseverance


Voice-over and acting teachers give their students technique, confidence, and an understanding of the business. What the actor has to provide (besides talent and a fun personality) is tenacity and perseverance.   


Whether you are trying to land a talent agent or audition for a job, what the agency or producer are looking for is known only to them. If you are passed over in favor of

someone else, you must never take rejection personally. It's a numbers game. Whether you are a rookie or have years of experience, the more you audition the more job opportunities you have waiting for you.  


Therefore, keep a positive mental attitude. It will make you feel better in the short term and help you be more successful in the long term. Victory is not always to the swiftest but the one who keeps running. Even Mel Blanc pounded the pavement before Warner Bros. hired him to voice cartoons. If you keep plugging away, you haven't failed. The moment you throw in the towel, all your hard work is rendered useless. So as Winston Chuchill said, " Never, never, never quit." Success awaits!
