Where is Your Spotlight Shining?

When it comes to lighting, it's a great idea to become a turn-around specialist.  What I mean by this is that the less time the spotlight is shining on you and the more you turn it around and shine it on the crowd, the more satisfying and fulfilling your own life becomes.  It also prevents blindness.  You can see the world so much better when the spotlight is shining on others and not in directly into your eyes.

If your having trouble shifting the light, remember this:  you are not the source of the spotlight – only a reflection of the light shining upon you.  Acknowledge the source.  Give the lighting director all the credit.  All the world's a stage.  You are a participant.  Yes, you have many roles.  In my opinion, the best one is supporting actor.  Do your best to help the other actors learn their lines and salute them for their amazing performances.  Give them the spotlight as much as possible.
