1. Be perseverant.
To get on this show you have to have some belief in your ability and then you have to sit waiting for your chance to audition - sometimes you are #10 chosen out of 10,000.
2. Be original.
3. Give 110% every performance.
Everyday you get a chance to give everything. The people we continue to want to work with or watch on this show are the ones who surprise us, who are really "in" it, who make us "feel" something inside.
4. Be present.
Whatever you are in the midst of right now, why not be as fully in it as you can be, so that you get everything you can out of the lessons, emotions, and experience? When it's not going good, make sure you learn what you need to so you don't end up here again, and if it's great, relish it, knowing that all of it is a cycle. As I tell myself when I'm training, biking or running fast down or up a hill..."what goes up, must come down."
