Tip#878: Unleash Your Fearless Confidence, Part 1 - Hysteria

I recently had a unique and exciting day at Canada’s Wonderland thanks to VIP passes from Bill Sweetman, my friend, client and founder of the domain name service Name Ninja. One of the highlights of the day was seeing the stunning full-sized animatronic dinosaurs in the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit. It was the closest experience to visiting the park in the Jurassic World film!

I also faced big fears riding top-level intensity roller coasters. Some we rode while it rained! Bill loved roller coasters which I’m not a fan of but felt this was an opportunity to be fearless and “go along for the ride”! The first drop on the Behemoth ride was absolutely scary because it was so high and felt almost inverted during the drop! We went on seven rides and despite a headache and a bit a nausea I was proud of myself for being fearless and building my self-confidence!

Hysteria (2011)

The romantic comedy film, Hysteria, is about life in the Victorian era of 1880, the medical diagnosis of female hysteria and the invention of the vibrator for medical treatments. Highly entertaining with funny and strong performances by Hugh Dancy (Dr. Mortimer Granville), Maggie Gyllenhaal (Charlotte Dalrymple), Felicity Jones (Emily Dalrymple), Jonathan Pryce (Dr. Dalrymple), and Rupert Everett (Lord Edmund St. John-Smythe). See: movie trailer

Aside from hilarious scenes involving of the invention and testing of the vibrator, what stood out for me were the strength, courage and confidence of both Dr. Granville and Charlotte. For example, Charlotte immediately shows up as a powerhouse of energy and passion despite her lack of social graces or manners. She later demonstrates strong convictions in her belief in helping the less fortunate and wanting to create a better world.
