Do You Aspire to Have the Same Confidence as Elle Woods?

Society is brutal and dictates how one should act, look, speak, and even think. It forces us to adjust and conform to others’ expectations because that’s what everyone perceives as normal. However, should we really let others dictate who or what we want to be?

Elle Woods was underestimated and regarded as a handful by her classmates and professors just because she looked and acted differently than other aspiring lawyers. She’s into fashion and romance and was an overly bubbly and bright girl. This led others to believe that she was not fit to be a lawyer.

But, Elle Woods proved them all wrong. No matter what career you want to pursue—even if it seems irrelevant to your passions and hobbies—go for it! You’ll certainly make it work if you put the same effort into your career as in your hobbies.

After all, while talent is a great help in reaching success, nothing can be compared to hard work. One must be determined and firm when striving for one’s goals; this is precisely what we’ve learned from Legally Blonde. Elle never let naysayers get in the way of her dreams—even if it were her parents or friends discouraging her from becoming a lawyer.

So, like Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, just go for what truly makes you happy! No one should ever dictate who or what you should be. Follow your dreams and live your life to the fullest!
