Tip#440: Exude A Smooth Self-Confidence - The Lincoln Lawyer

A few weekends ago I enjoyed another of Jesse Wente's Reel Talk surprise sneak previews of a soon-to-be released motion picture at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. And once again the movie was synchronistically perfect for inspiring my self-confidence at a time when I needed to face an extremely difficult issue. After seeing this movie I was successful in re-activating my own confidence thanks to the movie hero.

The Lincoln Lawyer 2011

The movie The Lincoln Lawyer is a about criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey) who operates from the back of his Lincoln sedan. He exudes a smooth, charming, self-assured confidence in the way he communicates whether it's with hard-core criminals, biker gang members or his feisty ex-wife (Marisa Tomei).

Seeing a self-confident character like Haller is what becomes a new cinematic role-model to inspire my own confidence. These characters help me on days I feel less self-assured or lost. And what becomes even more inspiring is witnessing Haller face unexpected and challenging issues and then see how he deals with it. Haller sinks into a momentary period of feeling lost and then rises up with his positive mindset re-energized.

What movie hero inspires self-confidence for you?

There are many types of movie heroes that demonstrate different forms of self-confidence. There is brash self-confidence like in Erin Brockovich or heroic like Maximus in Gladiator. Or there is the smooth laid-back confidence of the Lincoln Lawyer. What movie hero has inspired you with their self-confidence?

Hi Candice. I have yet to see Frida. Thanks for recommendation. Also I will always love Alicia Silverstone in Clueless. Definitely has a quirky style of confidence that is adorable!
