everything else was warm up
You've prepared for this moment! Whether directly or indirectly, your experiences have brought you to this this point in time and you've gotta perform. A friend of mine recently completed the Boston Marathon. Throughout the course of his training he often shared updates about his conditioning, diet, mental meditation etc. He traveled around the country competing in races that would allow him to qualify for entry in the Boston Marathon. After much dedication, he qualified for the race and went on to achieve a personal best. I think of his journey as a wonderful example of how hard work and experiences -- the warm up --bring you to rewarding accomplishments. It's kinda like VO work ...every presentation, every audition, every chance to share my voice -- the warm up -- has led to rewarding accomplishments that just keep coming.
