Are you ready for the magic bullet?
Here it is…
Your ability to succeed in this business is directly related to your level of self-discipline.
We don’t have an office job, as Voice Actors. No bosses or managers looking over our shoulders. There are no time cards to punch. No office hours we must adhere to.
Can you free yourself from distraction, stay focused and do what needs to get done?
More importantly, will you do what needs to be done even when you don’t feel like doing it? Even when there is no one telling you to do it? Even when you’d rather be doing something else?
One of the biggest reasons people struggle to succeed in voice over isn’t a lack of talent. It’s a lack of commitment to doing what needs to be done.
When no one is there to watch you, will you do the work?
