After more than 20 years of teaching acting for film and TV around the world, Paul Barry finds this consistently to be proven true. In order to regularly and believably portray authentic and engaging human beings, actors must subvert their habitual impulses and dive into the unfamiliar and sometimes frightening territory of playing the opposite of what would seem to be 'intuitive'. Having taught acting for film and TV for over 20 years to almost five thousand clients from around the world, including many recognisable actors working on screen in Australia, the UK and the US, Paul's time is now dedicated to his online acting training. Helps actors avoid the 'starving artist' fate by teaching online income generation skills to the next generation of artists via his coaching program, 'Dreaming for a Living'.
We've all been there. Small talk is easy, but it isn't always exciting or engaging. For example, you ask someone how their day was, and they respond with "fine" or "it was okay." But what if you changed the question?Asking meaningful questions can be the difference between a surface-level conversation and a deep, meaningful exchange. For example, instead of asking someone how their day was, try asking them what the best thing they did today was. You might be surprised at the response you get.This simple reframing can change the entire ball game when it comes to conversation. By asking more powerful questions, we can open ourselves up to learning more about the people around us and create truly meaningful connections.Join Dale today for a short episode where he dives into the three worst default questions we all use and how simple reframing can change your life. Please let us know if you liked this short episode, as we can bring them back to mix up the interview-style episodes. Cheers Dale Daily Mission Cards designed to help deeper conversations and connections -

Wayne Shipman has a fascinating story where he has overcome some very low times to be able to share his inspiring story with us today. From living outdoors as a homeless man in 2005, it was a far cry from being a proud father and patriotic Army soldier in the 1990's, and coping with bipolar and borderline personality disorders almost resulted in suicide. A last chance decision to face the realities of homelessness, divorce, bad parenting, major drug use, and the underlying effects of such mental health crisis lead to a path of total sobriety and an end to life on the streets. Wayne's story is one of surprising private success, where everyone will be able to take away something positive from our chat today. Youtube Channel - -

As an Australian sporting legend, Katrina Webb is no stranger to a Gold medal podium or a star-lit stage. She has received awards and medals most athletes only dream about. Despite this success, her journey hasn’t always been easy.Born into a family of sporting stars, it was no surprise that a young Katrina Webb was born with natural athleticism. By the age of eighteen, she had already secured a netball scholarship at The Australian Institute of Sport. What she didn’t realise at this time was that her sporting career was about to take an unexpected turn.During training at the Institute of Sport, a right sided weakness that Katrina had since birth and for many years she had spent hiding, was labelled Cerebral Palsy. Katrina’s ability to pursue netball at a national level was in jeopardy. Despite this, a twist of fate presented a previously unseen opportunity. Katrina was eligible for the Paralympic games. Her weakness had become her greatest strength.Over the years Katrina had tried to conceal her disability, so making the decision to compete at the very public Paralympics was not easy. In time, she realised that through self-acceptance and determination she could tackle her disability head on and that it was her gift. This decision paid off when she won two Gold medals, and a Silver medal in Atlanta 1996 and at Sydney 2000 went on to win a Silver and Bronze medal.While the Sydney Paralympics were successful for Katrina, her competitive spirit still left her with a desire to win Gold again. She knew that to do this she needed to take ‘conscious action’ and become a ‘Gold’ level performer in every aspect of her life. In the four years between the Sydney and Athens Paralympics, Katrina mastered the alchemy of performance with a clear focus on understanding mindset, and the results speak for themselves. At Athens in 2004 she won another Gold Medal in the 400-metre sprint and set a new Paralympic record.Today, Katrina’s running career is in the past, but her passion for helping others perform at their best continues to be her greatest inspiration. Off the track Katrina is the Director of Silver 2 Gold High Performance Solutions which specialises in powering organisations, teams and individuals best. As a professional speaker she has impressed audiences at an International level including speaking at the United Nations and sharing the stage with the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Jack Ma and Usain Bolt.Katrina's TEDx -'s website -
