I have recently come to realise that the joy in acting should come entirely from the actual acting, not from landing a role successfully but from doing a wonderful job in the audition.
This also means that an actor can then be acting daily, without the need for a casting director/director/producer or anyone else to give you the tick of approval. It's a choice.
My new YouTube venture is to show other actors this possibility.
Through finding one simple way of acting daily, I aim to inspire and excite other actors to do the same and thus be living and breathing their craft.
