I have always been supportive of the fact that we are all actors on life’s stage.
Just like stage plays, life has also handed us scripts we need to study and interpret in the best possible way.
Starting from our birth down to our families, schools, societies and churches, we all have a performance going on; the only difference is that we are both the actor/director.
Though the information on your script might be boring and without motivation but be swift to take cue from great directors who do not play by the rules on the script. You should strive to constantly evaluate, make changes, add or edit your script; be encouraged to “PLAY” with the script.
Unlike stage plays, there is no assigned role ,in real life you choose whatever role you desire, and also interesting is the fact that you can switch roles as you please while playing a lead role in your life or a supportive role for others. But for you to effectively play your role along with other supportive roles you need to “KNOW THYSELF”.
Discover who you are, why you were created, why you are here, what you want and how to get it.
Armed with this and much more great information on your persona, you are ready for a great performance.
Bear in mind that a play is not complete without the audience for whom we perform and it is important to know your audience beforehand, because performing for the wrong audience might undermine your performance.
It could be likened to a scenario where you perform a university play for immature elementary students. What a misnomer!
With an image of yourself in a real life performance I would like to ask, who is your audience?
For me I am an actor with an AUDIENCE OF ONE!
I play for :
The one who sits in heaven and has made the earth his footstool.
The one who is watching my every act, even my most unnatural act.
The one who smiles at the perfect delivery of my lines and great mastery of my cues yet understands when I forget my lines and have to make do with an improvisation.
The one who knows when I am only playing a supportive role.
MY AUDIENCE OF ONE! Is watching and waiting to applaud me at BLACKOUT!
ALL THE WORLD IS A STAGE AND ALL MEN AND WOMEN MERELY PLAYERS WITH AN AUDIENCE OF ONE!
