Actors face a unique set of challenges and advantages. No matter what level a career is at, uncertainty, rejection, judgment and disappointment are all part of being an actor. Happiness is often placed in the hands of what happens out there, yet the truth is, circumstances are only 10% responsible for our happiness. 50% is due to our genetics and, most significantly, 40% is in our own hands. It turns out, happiness is an inside job.
Being generally happy and fulfilled is not only something everyone deserves, it is absolutely essential to the success and longevity of an actor's career.
