If you haven't seen the movie, here's a little non-spoilerific refresher: During World War I, Amazonian princess Diana Prince heads to the frontlines looking for the God of War Ares, but starts witnessing the unflinching violence humankind is capable of. As the Allied forces stands off against German troops, neither having gained new ground for a year, local villages suffer from their occupation. Prince wants to help everyone she can, but companion Steve Trevor tells her that it's not possible to cross the forbidden terrain known as No Man's Land. Shielding everything the enemy can throw at her, she's able to move their soldiers ahead. Along the way Diana transforms into the Wonder Woman as we know of her: powerful, courageous, wise, a leader and team player.
No Man's Land became one of the most significantly inspiring scenes not only for the year but for moviegoers and Wonder Woman fans everywhere. By following her gut instincts and leading the pack, we were reminded that barriers can be crossed with compassion and determination. Here's some tips on how to treat the new year like No Man's Land - believe in yourself, try new things, don't let anyone limit your potential, and kick some butt in 2018. Hope you enjoy!
Find Your No Man's LandWhat are people or the world telling you isn't possible? Did you make a list of resolutions for the new year? Figure out what your biggest challenges are and decide the benefits of what can happen if you face them head on. Don't let others discourage you or tell you it's not something you can do.
Follow Your Gut Instincts
Pulling a quote from Marvel's Captain America: when the world, friends, family, or coworkers are telling us to compromise with our goals or dreams, it's our job to plant ourselves like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world: "No, YOU move.” Follow your gut instincts and what you believe is right. It's good to take advice from friends and family, but you ultimately know what's right for you at the end of the day.
