This Month’s Focus

Part Five: Never Settle For The First Taste Of Success

Today’s Class

Motivation Muscle

Today’s Target

​​When an Olympic Spirit is supported by an Olympic coach the results are profound.

An Olympic coach knows the areas to improve and the buttons to push to bring out our best.

We unlock new access to our potential. We are pushed further.

Day by day.

Practice by practice.

Forging a set-up to succeed.

Each challenge becomes a future opportunity, a direction, for our Olympic Spirit.

When an actor’s Olympic Spirit is supported by the drive and direction of an Olympic coach … the results are game changing.

Every day, every rehearsal, every class, every everything, begins to reveal:

  • pockets of potential,

  • the deep belief that “I Can Do Anything!”

  • … and the internal fiery roar to get there.

This week we’re welcoming the next member of our Olympic Dream Team Training Staff - a powerful new tool for your artistry to master your Motivation Muscle … no matter what life throws your way.
