In her 2019 Oscar acceptance speech, Lady Gaga said,
“If you are at home, and you’re sitting on your couch and you’re watching this right now, all I have to say is that this is hard work. I’ve worked hard for a long time, and it’s not about, you know…it’s not about winning. But what it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it. There’s a discipline for passion. And it’s not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down or you’re beaten up. It’s about how many times you stand up and are brave and you keep on going.”
Lady Gaga’s words are a great definition of tenacity and perseverance. To step out of the music world into filmmaking with success says a lot about her character and worth ethic.

Love this. Love her…
But she didn’t win the Oscar, what am I missing?
It’s well intentioned and I like her, but to be honest it’s pretty generic advice
and yet, so many folks give up their dreams. I’d say it’s still relevant to keep repeating it! Be tenacious!
