NAME THAT MOVIE:
“All you got is you and what you want to say to people, and they are listening right now.... So you gotta grab it, and you don’t apologize, you don’t worry about why they’re listening or how long they’re going to be listening for—you just tell them what you want to say. ’Cause how you say it is the stuff of angels.” —Jackson Maine

1. Your voice matters. Your goals and dreams matter. You matter. What you have to say does matter. Standing up for what you believe in starts with believing in yourself and standing up for yourself.
2. Make your dreams bigger than your fears. Don't let your fear of what other people think, say, or do interfere with your goals and dreams. They're your dreams - not theirs.
3. Be bold, be brave, and be you. Step into your power. No one is you and that is your superpower. In fact, being yourself is your greatest superpower. Loving yourself enough to do what makes you happy, having the courage to pursue your dreams, and having the confidence to be yourself unapologetically is powerful!
