What is it about Angelina Jolie that makes her the perfect actress for playing Lara Croft, Evelyn Salt, Fox, and Tigress in Kung Fu Panda? Is it the eyes, the lips, or the tattoos? While all three admittedly have their own appeal, we here at FN think it’s something more innate. Angelina Jolie is not just an actress--she's the epitome of a kick-ass woman! She's known to make her own choices, and she doesn’t let other people’s opinions sway her, just like all the women in our newest roster of 100 Amazing Filipinas this March. Want to be as awesome as her? Below are 10 qualities that would make anyone just as kick-ass as her:
1. Be decisive.
Make a choice and stick to it.
2. Remain calm.
You won’t be able to think of a plan if you lose your head.
3. Remember everything you learned from charm school.
Knowing when to smile can go a long way.
4. Be confident.
Enter all rooms with your head held up high.
5. Help out.
Fight for the causes that you believe in.
6. Think on your feet.
A quick mind can grab hold of more opportunities.
7. Always have a plan B.
It pays to be prepared for every kind of scenario you might find yourself in.
8. Be responsible.
Don’t leave things where they lie and then just hope for the best.
9. Keep your motivation up.
Don’t do anything half-baked.
10. Be observant.
Every second is an opportunity to learn.
