1) Passion: The catalyst for Jerry Maguire’s (Tom Cruise) career transition was an honest and inspiring mission statement he wrote. It was his passion that initiated career changes that would take time and courage to make into a reality. If you find yourself in-between jobs here’s your chance to utilize the time to unearth your passions and dreams. Passions can energize a more fulfilling career.

2) Relationships, teamwork: Maguire’s dream was to create a business that was more people-based where they are the bottom line. His new business started with just one assistant and one client who believed in his dream. Let that inspire you to cultivate supportive relationships that believe in you and whatever career goals you have.

3) Optimistic mindset, perseverance, resilience: Maguire perseveres in his new career and business venture despite being stripped of the company and clients he helped to build. It was his belief in himself and belief from others that kept him resilient and optimistic. Find these strengths within yourself and always remember that optimism is about seeing the bright side of things despite the negatives right in front of you.
