9 movies you would love to watch if you know they exist in 2015

Throughout 2015 there are so many blockbusters that you probably have watched, yet there are always some hidden gems that waited to be discovered. Before 2015 is gone, it’s probably a good time to see any good movies we missed.

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya

One of the best anime Studio Ghibli has ever crafted. The story is based on a 10th century Japanese legend about a princess that trying to get back to the countryside.

Slow West

The movie is about a young Scottish travels across America in pursuit of the woman he loves, attracting the attention of an outlaw who is willing to serve as a guide. John Maclean, the director and also the writer of the film, portrait a mid-west that we have never seen before

The story is about a family of cattle herder facing the threat of terrorism, imposed by a group of Jihadists. This movie is especially reflective in a year of so many terror attack. The movie was also the nominee for the best foreign language film for the Oscar.

Trainwreck

Amy Schemer you would love to have her on TV. Yet she is also amazing in the big screen. This time she is playing a commitment-phobic woman that thinking monogamy doesn’t work. Bill Hader is the lead actor and I bet you feel the chemistry. Bonus: LeBron James also played in the movie.

Song of the Sea

2015 is actually a year of anime. Except The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, which I introduced above, and Inside Out, which you probably have heard of; Song of the Sea  is actually another amazing anime movie. It even receive 99% positive review in Rotten Tomato. It talks about an Irish youth discovers that his mute sister is a selkie who must find her voice and free supernatural creatures from the spell of a Celtic goddess. And you can enjoy a preview of this marvellous film below.

Hard to Be a God

Created by the legendary Russian auteur Aleksei German, this is his final piece that he never finished. It took him nearly 15 years to create the movie. Even though he never finished the movie, he was pretty close already. That is the reason why others can film the remaining part after he passed away in 2013. You should watch the film just to memorise this master.

Tangerine

This movie was shot entirely on iPhone. It is a story of two transgender prostitutes searching for a pimp that broke her heart. Despite all the explicit sex and violence, it is actually a Christmas movie, talking about friends and families.

’71

A young British soldier is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a terrifying riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, the raw recruit must survive the night alone and find his way to stay safe. Probably the best survival movie in this year.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
