Momentum: The key to a sustained journey

Posted by The Actors Pulse on August 18, 2012

Having the privilege of being able to spend time on the set of The Hobbit this year and watching Stephen Hunter in action, has to be one of the most rewarding experiences that I’ve had as an acting coach.

No matter where I go in the world, the message is universal and consistent: habit is the key.

The habit I wish to talk about is momentum. There were many factors that went into the decision to cast Stephen for his role in The Hobbit, but the thing Stephen had going for him was that he had momentum with his craft. When the opportunity to audition for the role arrived, Stephen was ready. He had been ready for a while.

Without momentum, it is near to impossible to reach your destination. Imagine driving a car, accelerating and braking every 10 seconds. Well that is how I see people that can't quite get it together driving their lives. Having momentum allows you to build energy and to keep it. For me it is the a matter of habit and the number one habit…the habit I put at the top of the list.

             "The pain of discipline is far less than the pain of regret."

Find the discipline to create momentum, not just with your acting craft, but with your life as well.
