What Would Dolly Do?

No one is confident 100% of the time. Are they? Let me know if you want to out someone that is – write their names in the comments below! Haha.

When you next find yourself questioning your abilities, why don’t you ask yourself this simple question, to help free yourself from your confidence blip… “what would Dolly do?”

Dolly Parton is a wise wise woman and sharp as a knife in terms of business acumen. If you don’t believe me, check out the titles of just some of the songs that she has written, that she will be enjoying collecting the royalties on until the end of time (residual income, now that is smart working, do the work once and get paid forever!). She also gives free books to kids and has a series of immense, yet secret, tattoos (god, I love her):

I Will Always Love You

9 to 5

Islands in the Stream

Jolene

Two Doors Down

Coat of Many Colours

Here You Come Again

Do you think Dolly Parton would be sitting at home feeling sorry for herself and crying in to a Kleenex like a little bitch? Pull yourself together and get the-fuck on with it! You are awesome! You’ve got this. Obvs.

However, if you need slightly longer to come round from your self doubting sulk, then I always find this very motivational…

Tumble out of bed

And stumble to the kitchen

Pour myself a cup of ambition

And yawn and stretch and try to come to life

Jump in the shower

And the blood starts pumpin’

Out on the streets, the traffic starts jumpin’

For folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Workin’ 9 to 5

What a way to make a livin’

Barely gettin’ by

It’s all takin’ and no givin’

They just use your mind

And they never give you credit

It’s enough to drive you

Crazy if you let it

9 to 5

For service and devotion

You would think that I

Would deserve a fat promotion

Want to move ahead

But the boss won’t seem to let me

I swear sometimes that man is

Out to get me, hmmm

They let you dream

Just a watch ’em shatter

You’re just a step on the boss man’s ladder

But you got dreams he’ll never take away

In the same boat with a lot of your friends

Waitin’ for the day your ship’ll come in

And the tide’s gonna turn

And it’s all gonna roll you away

Workin’ 9 to 5

What a way to make livin’

Barely gettin’ by

It’s all takin’ and no givin’

They just use your mind

And you never get the credit

It’s enough to drive you

Crazy if you let it

9 to 5

Yeah, they got you were they want you

There’s a better life

And you think about it, don’t you?

It’s a rich man’s game

No matter what they call it

And you spend your life

Putting money in his wallet

9 to 5

Oh, what a way to make a livin’

Barely gettin’ by

It’s all takin’ and no givin’

They just use your mind

And they never give you credit

It’s enough to drive you

Crazy if you let it
