The following is a list of those amazing motivational and inspirational movies which motivated me(Saikat Ghosh) in starting YouMash :
I just finished watching this movie, and first thing I’m doing is updating this post. Nightcrawler is one such movie, which every entrepreneur with great vision should watch it. This movie is little brutal, but acting by Jake Gyllenhaal will keep you surprised. This movie is about a struggling guy who was looking for a job, but he couldn’t get one. The guy found a window of job opportunity when he saw a live crime journalism, and he started doing the same for the living. What you will learn from the movie is, how one can do anything without much background, how art of persuasion and negotiation can take you to the place. How focusing on your positives, and improving on them will make you limitless. Go watch this movie all by yourself, and come back to share your thoughts.
And the last line is something which will make you remember this movie forever:
The Social network (2010)
The social network was a Hollywood blockbuster released in 2010. It was based on the fairy-tale rise of Mark Zuckerberg and his startup – Facebook. The social network remains on top for inspiration because of its deft storytelling and brilliant background score.
This is a good movie on taking your idea from dreams to reality. The movie also teaches a lot on scaling a company from your dorm room to a Billion users! Although the accuracy of this movie has been questioned, it doesn’t matter, it is a great source of inspiration for all entrepreneurs. Here is one of the best line from the movie:
Pirates of silicon valley (1999)
Noah Wyle did a great job in portraying young Steve Jobs in this made-for-television movie.
The pursuit of happiness (2006)
Never give up, no matter what; is given a mash out in a simple yet effective fashion.
The Shawshank redemption (1994)
“Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.”
Forrest Gump (1994)
The story revolves around the simple nature of Forrest and how he appeals the entire world as he proves that you don’t have to be a genius to achieve something, all that you need to do is just try. My favorite quote from the movie:
This movie shows entrepreneurs to take an innovative approach to an existing way of doing business and beat your competition, with little to no money.
The Godfather (1972)
The father and his son Corleone are the brains behind the operations and they show what it takes to get to the top and stay there. One of the must-watch motivational movies for learning to from the masters on how to stay on the top. You don’t have to follow the line of being illegal, but there is still a lot to learn from the movie. And you can’t resist yourself from tweeting below line from the movie:
The wall street (1987)
This a movie on business and greed. The story is about an ambitious young stockbroker, Bud Fox. He has and does everything in his power to succeed, even that means a little insider trading. Insider trading is a reprehensible crime and yet that doesn’t fear him. He meets with Gordon Gecko and takes over his life with the ‘Greed is good’ motto in doing business.
This is a true underdog story of Rocky Balboa who is given the chance to fight the Heavyweight Champ. He has an opportunity in hand to make a better life for himself by going head to head with the challenge and winning the prize.
This movie teaches a lot about the competitive spirit and would inspire you more to get up and beat your competition (not literally!).
Jerry McGuire (1996)
Something ventured (2011)
If you happen to be an entrepreneur looking forward to exploring the Venture Capitalists, avenue, this documentary is the right fit for you. Something Ventured is a documentary movie based on the perspective of the Venture Capitalists who were the first in the industry in Silicon Valley.
Office space (1999)
Everyone who hates work raise your hands! If you were one, Office Space is definitely a movie for you. Everyone hates work! Who doesn’t? Want a move that will want you to get out of a desk job in the corporate world, then this is it! This is one of the must watch motivational movies for those who hate work.
This movie is about a story on Peter Gibbons. He is the one who can’t help but be promoted as he starts to slack off and do things his way, but there arises trouble as his new careless nature starts to cause him stealing from the company.
Ctrl+Alt+Compete is one of the documentary movie with the most up-to-date insight into the modern startup industry. Take a look into the Highs, the lows, the harsh realities of the Startup world. This movie is a reality check on the illusions of the Startup industry.
Apart from these movies, TED videos are highly recommended to give you much needed push to start and finish anything. One of the movie that I highly recommend is “The secret”. This movie will not only help you to build the positive outlook, it will change your perception and will help you to live a meaningful and happy life. If you are one of those who lacks patience, I highly recommend you to watch “The pursuit of happyness” and “127 hours”.
