What Al Pacino has to Say About “Winnin and Losin”

Lisa's Cropped ImageI was an attractive 5' 4" 18 year old when I moved to New York City to chase my dream of being an actress and model. Everyone, including my parents, said I would never make it. Although I was attractive, I just was not tall enough to make it in one of the most difficult industries to break into. Well as you can imagine, I would not let someone's poor advice to not chase your dream stop me. I moved to New York, lived in a women's home, made as many cold calls as humanly possible and never looked back. How'd I do? I became the top producing model and actress in my agency, did multiple national ad campaigns, including Milk, Dupont, Kellogg's and many others. I even appeared on the David Letterman Show...

What kept me going? I never gave up! We all need a little motivation once in a while so I thought I would share one of the most inspirational speeches I've ever heard delivered by the ever famous Al Pacino. I hope you enjoy it and it helps you to continue to chase your dreams!
