8 Reasons Why You Should Date A Person Who Loves Movies

8 Reasons Why You Should Date A Person Who Loves Movies

Every interest comes with its perks. For movie lovers, their interest is in movies and the stories that are immaculately pictured through a digital lens. They love movies and can be so passionate about every film that has left an indelible mark on their memory. When you date them you have to focus on the pleasant. And yes there are many pleasant reasons for you to date a movie lover.

1. They will make every night out at the cinema count

Who doesn’t like someone who can take them to the cinema and make them feel cozy while the lights go dark? Movie lovers take you out and are informed enough about the type of movie that they will make you feel all warm and fuzzy, getting you in the perfect mood.

2. They want to become movie stars

They have become so engrossed in the actors and actresses or writers and directors that they seriously consider a career in the profession. Certainly the movie lover you date today could become a movie star tomorrow. Isn’t that cool?

3. They know how to insert charming dialogue into a conversation

Won’t you feel enthralled when someone tells you this quote, “You are more beautiful than Cinderella! You smell like pine needles, and have a face like sunshine!” (Bridesmaids, 2011) or this, “What we do in life echoes in eternity.” (Gladiator, 2000). You can learn so much from a movie lover because they have become so absorbed in the movies that they watch that certain lines become a part of their statements.

4. They spin strong narratives

They don’t get you bored with what they say. They could always talk about a movie they have seen and make you want to watch it with them. They are so good at narratives that you may just want to skip the movie and listen to them tell you all about it.

5. They are great at remembering dates

Movie lovers are so enthused with release dates and dates that make a mark on the film that they suddenly become great with remembering other dates. Ask them when was the Writers’ Strike? And they will take you back to what won the Best Picture in 2007/2008. Or when did the Titanic sink and they will roll back to 1912. So don’t expect them to forget your birthday or any major anniversary because they will look forward to it the same way they look forward to the release of a movie.

6. They will debate with you

They are great debaters. They have an opinion of how their movies should have ended and what makes a great actor or a great picture. They will make a great and informed debater when they engage in a debate with you about a movie. The way they put so much energy and knowledge in their discussions about movies can be so sexy.

7. They won’t compare you to a character in a movie

This can be controversial, but they know that there is no way who they are dating can be a Kate Dawson or a Lloyd Dober. Their sweetest expectations, memories, and moments are saved for the movies. But it is easy for them to separate reality from fiction. They want you to be you, rather than try to be a character in their favorite movie. They understand that scenes from a romantic movie can be painted with over-enthusiastic romantic epiphanies.

8. They will give you the credit you deserve

Movie lovers understand the importance of giving credit to who deserves it. They know that a movie by Steven Spielberg is unique and can be done by only him. What is portrayed by a Tom Cruise is different from what is portrayed by a Leonardo Dicaprio. Most importantly, if you are in a relationship with a movie lover, they will give you every credit you deserve.

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
