Heaven High and Happy Wednesday!
In his book,”Acting For Real“, Thom shows us the Three Essences of Creativity. These three factors are three areas of our life that pretty much all of our actions and motivations fall into. The are:
- Sexuality or Charm
- Humanity or Passion
- Humor or Health
Sexuality, since we’ve discussed it before, also includes how charming we are. Charm is something that both men and/or women exhibit to varying degrees. Being able to play ‘charmful’ roles is a great skill to have both in business as well as in personal life.
After reading Acting For Real , you’ll be able to design roles that highlight your charm to your advantage. But understand that everybody has their own unique strengths in the area of where their greatest strength of ‘Creative Excellence’ lies.
Some people will find it easier to ‘play’ their sexuality or charm whereas other people will find it easier to play one of the other two parts of the Creative Excellent Triad.
Some people’s success is directly attributable to their enthusiasm or passion for something. And some people are able to create and display it at certain times and for certain subjects but not for others. Again, the idea is to always work with the strengths you have but also to develop those weaker areas as much as you can in order to become a generally stronger competitor in the game of life.
Humanity also includes the characteristic that some people have in how to nurture others. Women are generally good at this but men can do it too. Sometimes it’s a skill that’s very useful not only in personal relationships but also in business. Leaders use their Humanity of passion for a subject frequently with employees or followers that they can’t ‘reach’ any other way.
Humor, the third element of Creative Excellence, is a great skill to have or work on. Often, you can accomplish more with people, either in personal or business matters, by getting people to laugh. We’ve all seen it many times and it is a skill that can be learned.
Professional comedians study how to tell jokes and ‘be’ funny but most actors have played a comic role or two. I know….I’ve played several. So…we know that there are ‘tricks of the trade’ involved in exhibiting humor. “Acting 4 Real” talks about how to do that and you’ll find a powerful, fun and very useful new skill if you can learn it.
In real life, most people’s abilities tend to be about 50% in one of these essences and the other 50% is divided among the remaining two. That’s good though because it means that you’ll normally not be competing against someone with the exact same set of skills you have.
Thom McFadden’s new book, Personality, Personality, Personality, puts a whole new light on the age-old challenge of ‘rising to the occasion’ of life. Life is full of change and many people go through life hiding from it. By reading and putting into action what you’ll learn in “Acting 4 Real”, you’ll no longer be afraid of change but will rather learn how to embrace change and how to move up to higher levels of achievement, success and satisfaction in life.
