Tip#418: Find Your True Grit - True Grit 2010

Definition of grit: firmness of mind or spirit; unyielding courage in the face of hardship or danger

I am back home in Toronto Canada after a very full, 2 week adventure in Las Vegas and Santa Barbara. It was filled with an abundance of outstanding food, great family time, a new wardrobe, an internet radio interview AND a treasure chest of personal insights for rebuilding my life and career (see tips: #414, #415, #416, #417).

To enjoy the first day of 2011, my intuition led me to seeing a new movie that surprised me with an exciting new cinematic role model. Discovering this movie hero was a fantastic start to prepping my mindset for this New Year.

True Grit 2010

The movie True Grit is a western taking place in the late fall of 1877 where 14 year old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) hires a U.S. Marshal named Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) to track down the killer of her father. Texas Ranger La Boeuf (Matt Damon) joins the group and together they make an abrasive yet effective team.

The actress playing Mattie (13 years old when film was made) is a stunning new talent who has created a powerful role model embodying true grit. She is strong-willed, confident, tenacious, strategic and highly articulate. Cogburn and La Boeuf are also strong in character and provides even more reasons to inspire you.

Go After What You Want

For me Mattie mirrors the strengths and confidence I'd like to emulate in my own life. I can now visualize the mindset I'd love to have because of this movie character. Mattie has emotionally charged my spirit to go after what I want.

This year find your own true grit and go after what you want. Build your firmness of mind and spirit. Have unyielding courage in the face of hardship or danger. It's time to activate your hidden strengths and confidence!
