Do you ever feel like you’re not good enough?
I bet you do! I know the feeling. We all doubt ourselves sometimes – it’s human nature. And the really crazy thing is, we think everyone else is doing better than us. But they aren’t.
That film is just one of many movies that has pushed us beyond, compelled us to do more in our off-screen lives (even if we couldn’t replicate the characters’ achievements on-screen). And in fact, it didn’t even make our list. Look below, for We Got This Covered’s exploration of 5 films that will inspire you to do more with your life.
#1. Fight Club: Materialism And Detachment
”You are not your job. You are not how much you have in the bank. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your khakis. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake.” – Tyler Durden
Fight Club is a movie that offers more than a few lessons in success. However, one of the greatest lessons we can benefit from this movie is that of Materialism and emotional detachment.
#2. Pumping Iron: Self-Belief And Assertion
“Failure is unavoidable in our lives. But if I can learn something from it every time, the chance of success will only increase.”
Pumping Iron is not just a movie for body builders. No. Pumping Iron is a movie for those who would like to capture the power of self-belief and assertion in action.
Arnold Schwarzenegger shares his mindset, attitude, and personal beliefs in this documentary classic. And will no doubt leave you inspired when you watch it.
#3. The Secret: Positive Attitude
“Instead of focusing on the world’s problems, give your attention and energy to trust, love, abundance, education and peace” – The Secret
The Secret, is a movie based on The Law Of Attraction. (Also available as a paperback book). Whilst many are skeptical about the Law Of Attraction, the movie does, however, portray a very positive philosophy for life.
The film has one primary aim: To help you lead a better life by changing your mental attitude. So for anyone who is looking for inspiration and motivation, The Secret is a movie that does just that.
# 4. The Social Network: Entitlement
”A guy who makes a nice chair doesn’t owe money to everyone who has ever built a chair.” – The Social Network
Everyone should be familiar with The Social Network movie, and the success of Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg.
The Social Network is a movie that will inspire anyone to feel deserving of success, whilst also showing some of the drawbacks that being successful can have with the creation of backstabbing and legal rows.
#5. Yes Man: Opportunity
”YES! Say it a million times. Then say it a million more. And the word you will have said two million times is…” – Yes Man
Yes Man, is a fun movie that anyone can appreciate. Jim Carrey plays Carl Allen, who lives and average and unfulfilled life.
He finds himself at a self-help seminar called ‘Yes’, and soon, his life makes an interesting shift. This movie will have you thinking about all the opportunities you may have missed by saying ‘no’ to things.
