Great news! The audition went very well and I have been called back. This is a theater company I really want to work for, so this is a big deal for me. I feel like the positive result today is a product not only of the physical work I have been doing, which makes me much more marketable, but as a result of my improved personal habits. I am preparing for things the way I should. I am still far from where I need to be to achieve the kind of success I want. I constantly fight the impulse to sit back, to do it later, to let someone else control what happens to me. "Proactive" has become my new catch phrase and goal. I have already had more auditions in the last 4 months than in my first 2 years in Chicago. There aren't more theater companies, I am just doing the legwork. It is discouraging to think what I could have done if I had been smarter sooner, but I refuse to lose any more time.
