Seriously, it's handled.
Our favorite Gladiator is back, and damn it, she means business. Check out these quotes that reinforce that you can in fact, handle anything that's thrown your way.
Own your talent.
Being humble is extremely important and it gets people a lot farther than those who flaunt arrogance. However; you have to understand that people will not respect you if you don't respect yourself. If you are being paid to do something, you obviously have talent. Use that to your advantage. Bargain with it. Know your worth! It will make your ambition and drive that much stronger.
Be the person they go to when everything else goes wrong.
Olivia is a fixer. She knows what to do when everyone else is standing there twiddling their thumbs. Olivia is the one people look to for guidance. It seems like her confidence comes from knowing that. If you are secure enough in your skills, you can pretty much do anything you want.
Don't take shit from anyone!
This is easier said than done, but if you really put your mind to it you can become extremely confident. Having faith in your own convictions makes things infinitely better. Trust me, Olivia has a lot of self-doubt, but she covers it up with her attitude. Sometimes you gotta fake it till you make it.
Do what you want!
If you want to drink, drink! If you want to party, party! If you want to work your ass off, god damn it do it! Confidence comes from a place of self-assurance. So no matter what you do, do as you please, because that's what gladiators do right? I mean look at Olivia Pope...totally doing what she wants.
Olivia pope asserts her confidence by not being a pushover. She uses her confidence and strength to get things done. She never bows down to a challenge. In order to gain confidence and power, you have to show that you are in charge. So get it handled!
