Who, do you think, should win the Oscar this year? Who has been the best male actor in film this year? Should it be Don Cheadle, in Hotel Rwanda, Johnny Depp in Finding Neverland, Leonardo DiCaprio in The Aviator, Clint Eastwood in Million Dollar Baby or Jamie Foxx in Ray.

What about Leading female Actress? Who gets your vote? Annette Bening in Being Julie, Catalina Sandino Moreno in Maria Full of Grace, Imelda Staunton in Vera Drake, Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby or Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

How about you? Have you given an outstanding performance during 2004?
Did you created a breath-taking, unforgettable performance during the past year to get a nomination for the Life Performance Oscar?

When you accept that your role in your life is to give the best performance you can. To be you. To focus on your natural talents and your relationship with others will improve. Then others will nominate you for a Life Performance Oscar.

So how has 2004 been for you? Did you really touch your potential? Or did you accept second best?
When faced with all the other actors on the world stage, did you fall into the trap of:

• trying to compete with them? Or did you stick with your unique part and deliver to the best of your ability?
• spending your time wondering what others thought about you? Or did you aim to reach your potential and allow others to re think their roles as a result of interacting with you.

When you accept your role as an actor on the world stage then you have no one to compete with but yourself. When you accept that you are an unique individual, with your own skills and abilities, there is no need to compete with anyone. You just need to evolve your uniqueness. You, after all, have something important and great to give the world so why try and be like someone else. Why try to mimic their role?

In a film or a play each actor concentrates on delivering their role to be the best of their ability. Life is no different. To ensure you have a successful life all you need to do is concentrate on your role and deliver, to the best of your ability. To be a great person you just need to produce a great performance. You have the skills and knowledge all you need is the courage to deliver.

When you go for it, you will be successful and, who knows, maybe next year, you will be nominated for the Oscar in Life performance.

Good Luck.

Graham and Julie
