Desiree Brentley “Finding the Motivation”

2011 01 19

Hello and Welcome, My name is Desiree Brentley.

Have you ever gone to a casting and thought you did everything right but weren’t cast? Have you ever applied some where and not been hired? Have you ever just thought about quitting?

If so, I’m going to explain to you the psychological process that you go through to reach that point, and some of the things you can do to keep you going.

I teach at a private University in RL and would like to offer you some insight in this area.

Let’s begin by looking at our needs system.

Dr. Abraham Maslow was a noted psychologist who became an authority on Human Motivation. He developed, through experimentation and observation, a Needs Theory that is represented by a pyramid.

maslow-pyramid1

It’s important to remember two things. The need system is in a pyramid because as each need becomes active, it remains active until the need is met.

and, we don’t move to the next need until we have satisfied the need before it.

For instance, you are hungy and thirsty. Given a choice, which need would you satisfy first? Thirst, of course, as we can go longer without food than we can without water.

For instance, you are hungy and thirsty. Given a choice, which need would you satisfy first? Thirst, of course, as we can go longer without food than we can without water.

Physiological Needs
These are biological needs. They consist of needs for oxygen, food, water, sex and a relatively constant body temperature.

They are the strongest needs because if a person were deprived of all needs, the physiological ones would come first in the person’s search for satisfaction.

Safety Needs
When all physiological needs are satisfied and are no longer controlling thoughts and behaviors, the needs for security can become active.

Adults have little awareness of their security needs except in times of emergency or periods of disorganization in the social structure Children often display the signs of insecurity and the need to be safe.

Needs of Love, Affection and Belongingness
When the needs for safety and for physiological well-being are satisfied, the next class of needs for love, affection and belongingness can emerge.

Maslow states that people seek to overcome feelings of loneliness and alienation. This involves both giving and receiving love, affection and the sense of belonging.

Needs for Esteem
When the first three classes of needs are satisfied, the needs for esteem can become dominant. These involve needs for both self-esteem and for the esteem a person gets from others.

Humans have a need for a stable, firmly based, high level of self-respect, and respect from others. When these needs are satisfied, the person feels self-confident and valuable as a person in the world. When these needs are frustrated, the person feels inferior, weak, helpless and worthless.

And here we reach the area to which many of you will become susceptible.

Let’s look at the concept known as self.

To begin: We have the physical self. Your impression of someone usually happens in the first 10 seconds of meeting someone. Physical attraction is the single most important aspect of human interaction.

As you know, anyone can look anyway they want in SL, so physical attraction is not such a key factor in success, however, it is always a good
idea to try and stay as true to your perception of what beauty is, as this will make you stand out and be unique.

Branding is a term that is used a lot in the modeling business. It simply means, know yourself and then sell it.

Next, we move to a layer of self that cannot be seen. This is known as the social self, or our personalities. The social self is comprised of so many factors. Intelligence, humor, disposition, attitude to just mention a few.

Generally, those secure in their social selves are more outgoing, easy going, genuine, friendly and willing to give of their talents to help others.

If you have never experienced drama, then you have never seen two social selves battle it out for position, power, and attention. An insecure social self is more apt to demonstrate jealousy and tantrums to obtain the attention he or she so desperately needs.

Let’s look at the last, or inner most part of the concept known as self. This is our core values or our cognitive beliefs. Religion, politics, highly debated topics, How and why things are to be done the way they are–these we hold sacred.

Core values are those we will fight for, sacrifice for, kill for and sometime die for. Once a person reaches maturity, cognitive beliefs are almost impossible to change.

So, there we have it. Whenever self esteen is threatened our defenses go up and we find reasons to either rationalize it or walk away from it.

What can be done?

Gather a couple of friends. Probably not more that 3 of 4, and make a committment to discuss openly, your pet peeves, your frustrations, your current mind set.

Modeling takes passion. There are so many out there, that you have to be absolutely committed or you may as well find another profession.

Become aware of where you are on the Maslow Pyramid. Which need is active and how can you best fulfill that need.

Go everywhere. Every fashion show, every opening, every event. Getting your name out there is key. The person you stand in line for a casting today, may be a modeling agency owner tomorrow.

Set goals for yourself, Realistic goals. Modeling is baby steps. It is unlikely that you will be MVW if you have only been modeling a short time.

Constantly evaluate yourself and never stop learning. Take as many classes as you can and practice, practice, practice.

Once you have defined your look, walk and attitude, stay true to yourself. You do not want to become a cookie cutter model. While obaserving others, keep what makes you unique.

DO NOT, Do not give up unless you believe your talents lie elsewhere.
You are your worst and best critic, so give yourself praise and constructive criticism.

I hope this will help you with your future in modeling and that you will all go on to be successful.

[17:30] Aely Witte: but like with all the competitions and the want for work to be approved?

[17:33] Desiree Brentley: This can only take place when you feel safe.
[17:33] Rhonda Pennell: 🙂
[17:33] Desiree Brentley: Become aware of where you are on the Maslow Pyramid. Which need is active and how can you best fulfill that need.
[17:34] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: avatar actualization?

[17:35] Desiree Brentley: Sexual needs are on the first level of the pyramid and many people fulfill that need here.
[17:35] Rhonda Pennell: hmm I am not going to ask, then:)
[17:35] Monica Balut: I’d claim that modeling is very related to meeting sexual needs
[17:35] Desiree Brentley: Self actualization is the need to leave behind something that transcends our mortality
[17:35] Desiree Brentley: How so?
[17:35] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: self gratification??
[17:36] Monica Balut: I think it’s at the heart of female sexuality

[17:36] Lulu Breuer nods
[17:36] Linda Reddevil: what about men and modeling?

[17:36] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: most of the girls of sl are men i hear 🙂
[17:37] You: LOL
[17:37] Desiree Brentley: To be admired, certainly. All apart of fulfilling the need to feel good about yourself.
[17:38] Desiree Brentley: Let me ask you. When you are ready for a show. When every prim is in place, every accessory matches, how do you feel about yourself?
[17:38] Herradura Baar: I would feel really great 😀

[17:38] Monica Balut: Adrenaline rush

[17:38] Rhonda Pennell: yes
[17:39] Desiree Brentley: Yes, now say..you went down the runway and the audience booed you, how would you feel?
[17:39] You: eeek
[17:39] Linda Reddevil: totally heartbroken
[17:39] Herradura Baar had a guy jerk off and cum on her
[17:39] Rhonda Pennell: ~*~ OMG ~*~
[17:39] Caffine. (caffinelover.selona): Herraaaaaa!!!
[17:39] Rhonda Pennell: ~*~ FAINTS ~*~
[17:39] You: it would be very hard to take

[17:39] Rhonda Pennell: are you quite serious Herra o.O
[17:39] Arion Vella: upset but wanting to know why that reaction
[17:39] Linda Reddevil: I wanna know where that show was
[17:39] Herradura Baar: was wearing a Ginny Lanaster gown
[17:39] Desiree Brentley: Exactly Arion
[17:40] Risa Bright: It would feel like grade school and being bullied on the playground
[17:40] Desiree Brentley: You would begin to question your choices
[17:40] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: now there is a claim to fame
[17:40] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: talk to her marketing people
[17:40] You: wow
[17:40] Desiree Brentley: rarely do we find fault with those criticizing us.
[17:40] Desiree Brentley: It must be something about us.
[17:41] Linda Reddevil: thats a good point Desiree
[17:41] Monica Balut: I think models are more prone to that
[17:41] Desiree Brentley: Do you see? The need to be accepted would immediately kick in
[17:41] Arion Vella: lol, yes, women say “What’s wrong with me?” and men say “What’s your proble!”
[17:41] You: yes!
[17:41] Arion Vella: problem*
[17:42] Desiree Brentley: lol Arion, that is often true, although men are susceptible to self esteem attacks also
[17:42] Linda Reddevil: thats why they have man caves
[17:42] Arion Vella smiles and nods
[17:42] Desiree Brentley: The point is, if you felt good before you took the runway
[17:42] Desiree Brentley: then be true to that belief.
[17:43] Risa Bright: In SL, it has that added variable of “I look OK on my screen, but on your screen, I am Ruth” :p
[17:43] Desiree Brentley: What makes your feelings any less important than someone elses?
[17:43] Monica Balut: only if there are 100 of them
[17:43] Desiree Brentley: I would hope one of your modeling sisters would point that out to you.
[17:44] Rhonda Pennell: very true
[17:44] Desiree Brentley: moving along
[17:44] Desiree Brentley: Go everywhere. Every fashion show, every opening, every event. Getting your name out there is key. The person you stand in line for a casting today, may be a modeling agency owner tomorrow.
[17:44] Desiree Brentley: Set goals for yourself, Realistic goals. Modeling is baby steps. It is unlikely that you will be MVW if you have only been modeling a short time.
[17:45] Desiree Brentley: Constantly evaluate yourself and never stop learning. Take as many classes as you can and practice, practice, practice.
[17:45] Desiree Brentley: I’m sure you’ve heard THAT before.
[17:45] You: hehe
[17:45] Desiree Brentley: Once you have defined your look, walk and attitude, stay true to yourself. You do not want to become a cookie cutter model. While obaserving others, keep what makes you unique.
[17:46] Desiree Brentley: DO NOT, Do not give up unless you believe your talents lie elsewhere.
You are your worst and best critic, so give yourself praise and constructive criticism.
[17:46] Desiree Brentley: At this point I can take any questions you might have.
[17:47] Arion Vella: What’s the best modeling adive you were ever given?
[17:47] Arion Vella: advice*
[17:47] Desiree Brentley: I was told, that to be the best..
[17:48] Desiree Brentley: Everyone should be able to look at your picture without your name on it and say…That’s Desiree.
[17:48] Dee Shepherd: you’re selling the outfit..n ot yourself
[17:49] Desiree Brentley: That’s true, but the designer won’t hire someone who doesn’t make their clothes look buyable.
[17:49] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: 😀
[17:49] Arialee Miles: a top model sells herself and her skills in order to help the designer to sell their creations
[17:49] Desiree Brentley: Exactly Arialee
[17:50] Desiree Brentley: That’s why do many top models will tell you to define who you are.
[17:50] Desiree Brentley: so*
[17:50] Arion Vella: Is there any benefit in being a bit of a chameleon?
[17:50] Arialee Miles: popularity must not be a goal but a mean i think
[17:51] Desiree Brentley: When you are being true to self, then you will have confidence.
[17:51] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: here here arialee
[17:51] Monica Balut: The point is to be secure about your concept of beauty and go with it
[17:51] Rhonda Pennell: I agree…popularity should be a side effect of your goals, not a goal in itself
[17:51] Desiree Brentley: If you are seeking popularity which need is active?
[17:51] Desiree Brentley: My little quiz
[17:51] Rhonda Pennell: esteem
[17:51] Melinda Jensen: insecurity
[17:52] Monica Balut: belonging or esteem
[17:52] Veronica Krasner: agrees with melinda
[17:52] Rhonda Pennell: confidence and respect from others
[17:52] You: respect of others
[17:52] Arialee Miles: self actualization
[17:52] Desiree Brentley: Yes, Rhonda the socail self needs bolstering
[17:52] Desiree Brentley: See? I’m likeable, I’m popular.
[17:52] Rhonda Pennell: *smiles
[17:53] Desiree Brentley: Modeling belongs more in the realm of self actualization than the esteem needs.
[17:53] You: *yes*
[17:53] Desiree Brentley: If you are modeling to make up for not feeling secure and self liked, you are doing it for the wrong reasons
[17:54] Rhonda Pennell: *agrees
[17:54] Desiree Brentley: Thank you for having me here today. I hope you are all super successful. 🙂
[17:54] Arialee Miles: it is a way to have a side way to express creativity
