“The Devil Wears Prada” is a Hollywood feature film based on a novel of the same name. Last night I watched this movie as it was suggested as a must watch for all aspiring entrepreneurs, you can find the full list here.
It reminded me of my first job and how I used to do all it takes to give my best and to please my supervisor in every circumstance, except that I realized it sooner than the protagonist that my happiness is the first priority.
In the pursuit of pleasing the boss we go out of ways and change ourselves altogether, and we think we don’t have a choice but in reality, we always do. It’s just we think our own happiness is not that important and in order to please others, we do the things we would never have done if it were up to our own choice. In the end, as the protagonist realize that she had the power to choose all along, it’s very fulfilling to watch her go from the glamorous world of fashion to the thing she always wanted to do.
