AWARD WINNING ACADEMY FOR MINNESOTA MODELS & ACTORS™
“The greatest tragedy is never to become the person that you were meant to be”
When I decided to commit to the Performance 1 class at Caryn International, I had no idea what to expect. I chose to pursue my interest in commercial print modeling and acting to have a creative outlet outside of work but also to overcome performance anxiety that I have battled for years as a performing artist. I didn’t realize however that this course would transform me spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
After the first class, I decided to practice positive thinking, goal setting, and positive affirmations as part of my daily routine. I can honestly say after just one week, I began to feel a major transformation in my life. I didn’t realize how much my mind wandered to negative thoughts which cause negative emotions. It was especially difficult to practice this new method as I had a very challenging week at work. After the second class, I started to consider what I wanted on my vision board. I began to reflect on what my true passions are, and how they will be used for me to achieve God’s purpose in my life. It became very clear to me that positive thinking and goal setting are essential to accomplishing the vision that I have for my life.
As a result of taking this class, I have learned that positive thinking develops a strong foundation of peace and that “Peace is the emotion of faith.” I have discovered that the root cause of a lot of my anxiety issues was fear and that peace and faith cannot co-exist with fear. In order to become the person who I am meant to be, I must live without fear and have faith that all things in my life will work together for good because I am called to his purpose and plan.
