"Insecurity arises from the incorrect belief that one's thoughts are too unique for casual conversation, and, instead of being shared, should be contained within the person's thick and timid membrane. But upon realizing the similarities between themselves and each person that surrounds them, a person is able to allow their thoughts and visions to be made heard and seen, and swiftly becomes aware of the enormous confidence and potential they hold. So don’t believe the hype. You’re not all that different, and that's a good thing."

"The first rule of improvisation is AGREE. Always agree and SAY YES. When you’re improvising, this means you are required to agree with whatever your partner has created. So if we’re improvising and I say, “Freeze, I have a gun,” and you say, “That’s not a gun. […]"

"The first rule of improvisation is AGREE. Always agree and SAY YES. When you’re improvising, this means you are required to agree with whatever your partner has created. So if we’re improvising and I say, “Freeze, I have a gun,” and you say, “That’s not a gun. It’s your finger. You’re pointing your finger at me,” our improvised scene has ground to a halt. But if I say, “Freeze, I have a gun!” and you say, “The gun I gave you for Christmas! You bastard!” then we have started a scene because we have AGREED that my finger is in fact a Christmas gun.
Now, obviously in real life you’re not always going to agree with everything everyone says. But the Rule of Agreement reminds you to “respect what your partner has created” and to at least start from an open-minded place. Start with a YES and see where that takes you."
