The Elysium Aesthetic

Week Eighteen: I Can Do Anything

Happy Monday! Welcome back to Acting Class Daily and Part Four of The Elysium Aesthetic.

We begin each month with a complimentary, week one perspective-shaper. A tone-setter for the tools and practices we’ll be covering over the next three weeks in each of our three areas of lifelong growth: artistry, instrument and craft. Enjoy!


New to the work? These free introductory chapters are where we recommend you start: Kindred Spirits, What Is Good Acting?, Growing Excellence, The Muscles of Preparation.

This Month’s Focus

Part Four: I Can Do Anything

Today’s Class

I Can Do Anything

Today’s Target

I can do anything.

​It’s worth taking in how powerful the those words are for an actor.

​Not hope (it’s a good script). Not guess (if you’re right for the role). Not wait (for direction).

​When you have the capability, the know-how, the set-up, the ever-increasing ability to succeed at anything … it becomes an extra-ordinary ability.

A super-power.

An actor who can do anything can be right for any role, can work from any script, can flourish off any collaborative request, can succeed in any environment - no matter what life throws your way.

​And, most importantly, love every aspect of the experience.

​Today we’re turning words into action ... turning “I Can Do Anything” into the undeniable belief and unshakeable foundation of the fearless forward.
