How to improve my acting?

Shocked How to improve my acting?
Not sure if this was the right place to post this since the other closest thing was the VA Demo reel, which I don't have since I've just recently started out and haven't found my voice yet. I'm a complete noobie to voice acting, and was hoping someone else could be my ears and tell me how I can improve on my acting.

I've watched a bunch of tutorials and guides on youtube about "how to be a voice actor." The consensus is that you have to be an actor first, not a third rate impressionist. I'm trying to get myself into the role, but I feel like my voice falls flat against the people I'm competing against.

I do have fun in the booth, closet, but when I hit upload and listen to everyone else I instantly lose confidence.

I'm trying to "master" my own voice, but I'm not sure what that really means. There are two roles I auditioned for which wanted me to sound really different, but generally I want to see if I can get accepted for my normal voice.

RE: How to improve my acting?
The only way to get better is through practice and experience. Take classes, study, practice, apply what you've learned to a role and refine. Rise and repeat until you've leveled up enough to be competitive.

Being able to manipulate the pitch/texture/accent/etc. of your voice performance is not the same skill as being able to act. They are nice flourishes to have in your tool kit, but will not fix a poor performance. The foundation is always going to be the acting.

One note: Don't get stuck on not landing roles. Even if you are a great actor, it won't mean you're the best fit for the production.

Watch SoulBro's guide. You'll learn more in 6:31 than you will after $631.
