The Greatest of All Time.
Pursuit of happyness
This movie almost appears every time whenever you search for motivational movies. Pursuit of happyness is a biographical drama film. It’s the motivational story of Chris Gardner, struggling with homelessness for nearly one-year. Will Smith as Chris Gardner and Jaden Smith as Christopher Gardner Jr. (Gardner’s son) are featured in this movie. One of the most famous quotes of the movie came from the scene where Gardner and his son were on a basketball court. “Hey. Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something. Not even me. All right?” said Chris Gardner. This is definitely one of the inspiring quotes in the movie. That is not the only one. There is one more inspirational quote that comes right afterwards, where right after Christopher (Gardner’s son) answers him “All right”, Gardner continues to tell Christopher that “You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period”. After reading these motivational quotes, I guess you can’t deny that this movie is one of the greatest motivational movies EVER! PERIOD! !
Life was like a box of chocolates.
This movie is a classic. This movie is based on a same name novel written by Winston Groom, published in 1986. Tom Hanks plays Forrest Gump, a person with below average intelligence level in the movie. Despite his low level of intelligence, he ends up owning a shrimping business, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, which became a huge success in his life. Forrest Gump encounters different trials and tribulations in his life throughout the movies. He represents his school as an All American football player, and later become part of the army. After sustaining injuries, Forrest learns to play ping pong and eventually play on the All American ping pong team, and finally involves himself in the shrimping business. The movie doesn’t really contain much inspirational quotes, but somehow this movie is one of the most inspirational movies. This movie will teach you a lot about life.

Prefer Action Movies?
Unbeatable is a Hong Kong film. The movie depicts the difficulties faced by different people in their lives. Nick Cheung plays Ching Fai, a former boxing champion who faces financial problems. Meanwhile, Crystal Lee plays Pei Dan, a young girl who takes on the responsibility to take care of her mentally ill mother while Mei Ting plays her son drowned after her husband leave her. Eddie Peng plays Lee Si Qi, who wants to enter the MMA tournament to motivate his father who recently went bankrupt. The movie is about how these 3 people from different background meet each other and start to experience positive changes in their lives. One of the inspiring quotes that I really love in this movie is “If you are scared, you will lose, forever” (It’s a Hong Kong movie, so yea, the quotes might be as it was said in the movie.) Another inspirational quote that motivates me is “But every time I tell myself: I can do it”. With Unbeatable, Nick Cheung and Crystal Lee won both Best Actor and Actress award in 16th Shanghai International Film Festival. The main language in the movie is Chinese and Cantonese, so if you are interested, just watch it with English subtitles. It definitely worth a watch as it will inspire you.
Don’t have much time? This is for you.
I still have a soul
This is a motivational video, or to be more accurate it is a motivational commercial. If you don’t really have time to watch the motivational movies above, watch this. The length of the video is just 2 minutes and 26 seconds, it’s really a short video, so it won’t take much of your time. But don’t judge a video by its length, even though the video is short, it is definitely one of the best motivational videos I have seen and has probably motivated countless people in their lives. Generally, it’s a inspirational video related to boxing. The video shows what a homeless guy goes through in order to enter a boxing tournament. I highly recommend you to watch this video, for one simple reason. It is short, just 2 minutes. So why don’t you just click into the video and watch for 2 minutes? It’ll surely pump you up for the day(s) ahead.
Among the 4 videos/movies I recommended, you might have realized that two are related to combat sports. Well, that’s the genre of video or movie that motivates me. So, if you are looking for motivational movies or videos, ask yourself which type you prefer. Some are related to sports, some are related to dreams, choose those that you have passion with. It’s way more effective.
DON’T EVER LET SOMEBODY TELL YOU… YOU CAN’T DO SOMETHING.
