I love the tagline for this movie: @@“For anyone who’s ever won. For anyone who’s ever lost. And for anyone who’s still in there trying.”@@

Working Girl is one of my all-time favorite movies. It‘s my go-to inspiration when I needto fire up my ambition and get moving towards my goals.

The lead character, Tess, was not satisfied with her life. She played by the rules and found they didn’t work for her. So, she decided to make her own rules. She had dreams. A bigger vision for herself. She realized if she wanted to live life on her own terms, she had to make it happen. No one else would do it for her.

Here’s why I‘m so drawn to this story. It’s really about overcoming fear. We’ve all heard the phrase, “feel the fear and do it anyway.” Tess felt fear.

Fear of losing her job.

Fear of never escaping the box society had put her in.

Fear of never realizing her dream.

Was it risky? Absolutely but so was living a life knowing she could do more. Be more. Contribute more.

She felt the fear, seized her opportunity and took massive action.

What’s massive action? Massive action is doing whatever it takes to reach your goal. 

You fail the first time? You keep going.

You bump against a road block? You keep going.

@@It doesn’t matter how long it takes. You keep going.@@

She didn’t let the naysayers affect her drive or her hustle.

Her focus? Closing the deal and proving to the world (and perhaps herself) that she was capable of more than fetching someone’s coffee.

She was ambitious and smart and not afraid to get a little creative to reach her goal.

Pose as a partner in the firm where she worked to get that big meeting? You bet your ass she did.

Crash the wedding of the business tycoon’s daughter?  Without batting an eye.

She believed in her dream, in herself, when no one else did. @@There are times when we have to go it alone and give the world time to catch up.@@

Those with a vision, a fire in their belly, know exactly what I’m talking about.

Do you have a dream that you’re ready to take massive action to make come true?

Do you hold a vision for your life that no one can see but you?

Are you ready to commit to it and yourself?

Are you willing to feel the fear and do it anyway?

I want to hear from you. Leave a comment below and tell me about your go-to inspiration. What fires up your inner boss babe? Is it a movie? A song? Let me know how you’re ready to @@move past your fears so your dream = what’s real.@@ 

Love + Light,

Dawn
