    Hi,

    I love The Secret.

    Rocky is great too.

    Really, a nice jolt of high energy music can get me going.

    Overall though my motivation is intrinsic, and simply seeing my vision in quiet drives me to do what I do.

    Good share!

      I agree that those Rocky movies are also some of the best especially the last movie where he gave his son some really great advice....

  • Rudy is my favorite too!!! It's not just because he succeeded despite all the odds, it's how he inspired the rest of his family (younger siblings, nieces and nephews) to aspire for more. In the process of going after his dream, he helped a lot of people expand their horizons and reach for bigger things.

      if you want to have a very different kind of motivational experience watch Black (an Indian Movie). It is a pristine cinematic experience with a brilliant story - that will enrich your life in many ways.

      See what others are saying here; Black (2005) - IMDb

      I recently watched it after many years, and hope some of you watch it too.

      get the one with English sub title though.

    For me, the most inspiring movies are those that show a person doing big things. Such movies usually include someone who has less that what I have, but still manages to achieve more than what I've achieved. They remind me how vicious the self-limiting boundaries are and how important the faith is. Basically, they show me what is possible if I wasn't limiting myself.

    Such movies include:
    Nolan's Batman/Dark Knight, Fight Club, Inception, It's a Wonderful Life, Limitless, Mr. Nobody, Revolver, Scent of a Woman, Seven Pounds, The Pursuit of Happyness, The Shawshank Redemption and V for Vendetta.

      I agree with every single one of these (that I've seen).

      I'd add "What the Bleep do we Know" to the list - the original, not the "quantum" version.

    The Disney version of Hercules was a pretty motivational movie in my opinion. Even though Hercules had a lot of strength he still had to train his mind and master his strength to really become Hercules the Hero.

    I pretty much am inspired by any "Zero to Hero" story.

    Pursuit of Happiness was very inspiring and Will Smith did an amazing job playing his role.

    I just watched a very inspiring movie called:

    The pursuit of happyness.

    Actually, I watched it a few times already.

    It just shows you that even though you have hardships in your life, you can still rise up and be a huge success.

    The pursuit of happiness is one of my favorites. Actually, I love all Will Smith movies, but this one is the best. The second his "motivational" movie is The legend of a Bagger Vance - GREAT!

    Peaceful Warrior - about gymnast who fall and doctors told him he'll never be able to compete again. Nick Nolte is his mentor

    I've got to second (or third or 4th) Rudy. I mean, come on... if that doesn't motivate you, what will?

    I may be alone in this one, but "Mr. Holland's Opus" is as inspirational/motivational as they come. Is it cheesy? Sure. But if you're not rooting for Richard Dreyfus by the end of it... then you've got no soul.

    Forest Gump is kind of an obvious choice, but I definitely have to include it in my favorite motivational movies. I mean, come on, that (fictional) dude lived a LIFE!

    Braveheart, for sure.

    Lastly, Empire Strikes Back. What line from any movie is more motivational than "Do, or do not. There is no try."

        "The Aviator" - stunning screen play, powerful acting, iconic entrepreneur chasing big bodacious dreams in the most flamboyant fashion .. an absolutely pleasure everytime I watch.


        For pure motivation - I think these days 5-10 minute videos on Youtube does a better job than watching a entire movie. I guess im not alone on that..

    The Pursuit of Happyness is the most motivating for me. From struggle to being ridiculed for a dream to being a successful broker. It taught me well to never let anyone tell you that you can't have what you want. Also "The Bucket List" reminds me to take action, 'cos, well... Life's too short.

    I have found 'The Peaceful Warrior' as one of the best motivational movies of all time. It is also based on the true story of gymnast champion Dan Millman and later on himself becoming a motivational speaker/writer. His life story and the movie once again show cases the fact that 'Nothing is impossible!'
