Failing As An Actor? You Have Bad Friends | Find And Fix Them

Actors, identify bad and good friends 

The ways your friends affect your acting career and life

They change your beliefs about things, especially acting as a career 

Beliefs can be changed if they were constantly challenged and if new beliefs were constantly repeated. Lots of friends can have a negative or a pessimistic view of the acting and actor's prospects in Bollywood/ TV job market before they even had the chance to know the real truth. This pessimistic view came from the continues programming they received from their friends in the form of suggestions that are repeated over and over such as "it's extremely hard to find a job these days" 

They affect your self-confidence

Again this is partially related to the first note;  'belief"- Friends Alter the perception of each other, if your friend is arrogant or snobbish then this belief will be transferred to you. His/her behavior towards you in a bad way might be interpreted by you as a sign that shows that you are not that worthy of being good then such a belief might Affect your self-confidence badly. 

Your friends affect your behavior
