And of course, that movie star you can model and best learn from is:

“Graceful Honesty & Integrity”

And the movie star who best personifies this truth-speaking profile can be found in blockbusters such as:

And of course, that movie star you can model and best learn from is:

Meryl Streep

Whether playing the lone attorney willing to take on an AIDS discrimination case in Philadelphia Story

Or a coach of a high school football team torn apart by racism in Remember the Titans

Or the legendary South African freedom fighter, Steve Biko, in Cry Freedom

Denzel Washington’s compellingly outspoken and powerful leadership roles has transcended race in a manner that puts him in the rarefied company of such iconic actors as Morgan Freeman and Sidney Poitier.

He’s become so famed through the straightforward and unforgettably formidable characters he’s played …

that are a bit like you, [syt_user_name].

But the role where she most exemplifies the qualities that will help you let go of those shackles and rise up to your true power was playing Katherine Graham in the Oscar-nominated political thriller The Post.

Graham was the initially walked-over but later heroic publisher of The Washington Post.

Given your truth-speaking profile, which I detail just below, this special report will begin helping you be heard, respected and listened to, starting today.

Like Katherine Graham, you’ll lose your fear of rocking the boat and you’ll stop living a life of repressed emotions and frustration.

And maybe the best part is, with the new skill you’re about to acquire, you’ll naturally begin receiving more love and affection you may be craving from your significant others, children or parents.

Finally, you’ll develop the power to become an inspiring leader in your own business.

Let’s get started!

Katherine Graham was the publisher of The Washington Post during the explosive years leading up to her paper’s Pulitzer Prize winning expose’ of The Pentagon Papers and Watergate Scandal. Graham’s courageous decisions led to the downfall and resignation of one of the most corrupt presidents in United States history.

This was while Graham was living under the threat of being criminally prosecuted and jailed as a felon. Her bravery in defying injunctions by the Nixon White House (which had shut down The New York Times from writing anything further on the subject), would lead America out of one of its darkest periods in history.

But for the first 8 years when Graham reluctantly took over the helm of The Post after her significant other died in 1963, she was head seemingly in name only, constantly marginalized by men in the organization.

See how much you can identify with what Graham, brilliantly played by Meryl Streep, experiences in these brief scenes from the extraordinary movie The Post

But later, after years of being walked over by others, Katherine Graham takes back her true power as a woman and as the owner of her company. Watch Meryl Streep portray that transformational truth-speaking moment that not only changed The Washington Post forever, but altered the history of our entire country —

This Persona indicates, while not always, you, like Meryl Streep, have the tendency for these characteristics and behaviors:


  • Anxiety and repressed anger from not being heard
  • Difficulty handling someone who is self-centered (and possibly even narcissistic or abusive)
  • Finding it challenging to speak up for yourself
  • Stress from men — and even some women — often not respecting or listening to you
  • A fear of stirring up the hornet’s nest and making things worse than they already are

Your Meryl Streep Persona additionally indicates in your relationship you may …

  • Feel a longing to have heart-to-heart conversations with your significant other rather than having to “stuff” your feelings
  • Desire to end frequent arguments
  • Have a hidden grief that your inner turmoil regarding your relationship may lead to emotional distancing … and even separation … and possibly even breaking up

Regarding being a manager, you, like Meryl Streep and so many other women managers, likely wish to —

  • Feel more respect, especially from men
  • Be better at creating healthy boundaries
  • Be more adept at delegating, and keeping your team on schedule and on task
  • Be clearer, firmer and more effective when negotiating agreements
  • Become more skilled at heading off conflicts
  • Potentially even avert a legal action that’s looming before the situation gets totally out of hand

In a nutshell, you end up harboring a lot of repressed anger, resentment and frustration.

This is because when it comes to getting your point across, you feel you may not have the words to be able to speak up for yourself without offending the other person.
