    Be confident in yourself! A leading lady believes that she is precious. She is a woman who is sure of herself and her decisions. This lady keeps her mind clear and focused. A Leading Lady knows her lines and what is going to happen next. Leading Ladies also get to, 'take 2', 'Take 3' and so on and so. If you want to be a leading lady, try to stay away from unpredictable situations and always know what you're going to say. Remember the only way you can be confident and know you can achieve anything is to know you are fully prepared to do it or draw on your experience of previous accomplishments. For example, you can't be confident you can pass your driving test if you never sat behind the wheel of a car, if you've had enough lessons and passed a mock test, you can be confident!
