We all know that voice.
The one that says things like: “You’re gonna mess this up” “You have no idea what you’re doing” “You’re not right for this” “You sound ridiculous” “I shouldn’t be doing voiceover” “I’ll never get hired” or “I’ll never get hired again.”
Of course, being in the voiceover industry, you hope and pray that your voice won’t be ignored. And if you’re focused on the right things when doing a read – it more than likely won’t be. Ignored.
But if a voice that should be ignored does exist, it’s the one in your head – second guessing and doubting you when you are trying to deliver a competitive audition or give a producer what they want during a booking.
The more you focus on bringing your own, personal interpretation to copy and communicating with every skill you’ve worked on and developed as a talent – that’s gonna be the read that people notice. And keep booking you for.
So that voice in your head, telling you to doubt yourself and what you’re choosing to do with copy, is keeping you from booking that job.
Don’t listen to it.
