Life Lessons From These 16 Inspiring Movies You Must Watch Before Age 40
Advertising

Movies can inspire. They can make you think out of box. Sometimes they can make you question yourself and look back at your life or perhaps even see your future. There is a true and honest kid inside each of us. When we grow older, often we get so serious that we forget the wonder of life.

These inspiring movies have made me a better person, often helping me believe in myself and look for the bright side no matter what is happening in my life.

1. Yes Man: Take your life easy.

    “The world’s a playground. You know that when you are a kid, but somewhere along the way everyone forgets it.” – Allison

    We are so tired of our lives, of duties of never ending stress that without thinking, often the first answer to anything is NO. Take a life a bit easier, lighter and say YES to all opportunities which come along.

    2. Me Again: Your life is all about the choices you make.

    Me Again

      “There is nobody I wanna be than me again.” – Rich Chaplin

      People always want something else, but not what they have. At one point they forget that is it what they have chosen a while ago and it is given to them to have the lesson of life and grow within. This movie gives an opportunity to look how it would be if it would turned out differently. To see the life from other’s point of you and realize you can be happy with all you have, it is just your choice.

      3. A Thousand Words: What you say do matter.

      A Thousand Words

        “It’s okay, our truth can be painful. Pain is the touchstone of goal. It’s okay, laugh, cry, to close causes just to let it out.” – Dr. Sinja

        We are used to doing anything to get what we want. We often say words without meaning and sense just to make the mask we wear more real. This movie will make you think about what you haven’t said and when have said too much.

        4. Peaceful Warrior: Sometimes, you need to listen to your heart.

        Peaceful Warrior

          “Socrates: Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what’s good for you. They don’t want you to find your own answers, they want you to believe theirs.

          Dan Millman: Let me guess, and you want me to believe yours.

          Socrates: No, I want you to stop gathering information from the outside and start gathering it from the inside.”

          When you think you have everything you need and want, when you think you are happy and successful and there is nothing else but you in the world, you will lose it all to realize how little you know about life. This movie will make you stop whatever you are doing, stop pretending and finally listen to yourself, not your thoughts, but your heart. It will make you start thinking what you want and how to do it without looking at what you can’t or what is wrong.

          5.Rise of the Guardians: Believe in yourself.

          Rise of the Guardians

            “How can I know who I am, until I find out who I was?” – Jack Frost.

            There are always questions – Who I am? What I want to be? How to be the way I am with all what is given to me?

            This movie is about fear and faith. Believing in and accepting yourself. Watch this movie if you have lost faith in yourself or you want remind yourself – everything is connected.

            6. Like Stars on Earth: You’re unique for sure.

            Like Stars on Earth

              “On the Solomon islands, when the tribes need to clear the jungle to make way for fields, they don’t cut down the trees, they simple gather and collect around it, and hurl abuses at the tree, they curse it. Slowly but surely, after some days, the tree begin to wither. It dies on it own.”

              Bollywood movie about an 8 year old boy who is a bit different from others. His imagination let him see the world full with miracles and wonders. How can you put kid in frames and your borders if there are no borders in Universe.

              Movie to realise that each of us is unique and to let shine our best part we need to find a different approach. Movie that will make you to look different to your kids, to other people and yourself.

              7. August Rush: Keep the faith.

              August Rush

                “You know what music is? God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in this universe, a harmonic connection between all living beings, every where, even the stars.” – Wizard

                “All you have to do, is to open yourself up….and listen.” All what is given to you is to come back to yourself, to Universe and source of life. Gentle touch of music, love and fulfilment deep as light in your Soul.

                8. A Little Princess: Never stop imagining.

                Little Princess

                  “You can be anything you want to be, my love, as long as you believe.” –  Capt.Crewe

                  Maybe a bit girly movie, but beautiful in its own way. About imagination and that everything can become true if you believe in it. It is easy to keep faith and joy of life when you live in comfort and secure, but if your life changes in a minute, would you keep your believe in good and your kind attitude or you will brake and start blaming others. A movie about faith.

                  9. The Ultimate Gift: Have a dream.

                  The Ultimate Gift

                    “You can teach someone what character is. You can tell them “do this! Do that” but at some point, the gifts need input, intuition, dreams. One needs to be the freedom to dream, then act on it. Even if you don’t have a dream of your own, you can give dreams to others-help them to fulfil their dreams!” – Red Stevens

                    When all you have is so used and you have got it without and effort only taking all of it away can learn you to appreciate and start learning to live and share.

                    10. The Ramen Girl: Live your own life.

                    The Ramen Girl

                      “A bowl of ramen is a self-contained universe with life from the sea, the mountains, and the earth. All existing in perfect harmony. Harmony is essential. What holds it all together is the broth. The broth gives life to the ramen.” – Maezumi

                      Whatever you do, put there all your life and heart. Don’t separate yourself from your past, present and future. it is all here, in this very moment, when you honestly share it, you let others feel one part of the Universe and meet their own hidden being.

                      11. Fireproof: Keep learning.

                      Fireproof

                        “When a man is trying to win the heart of a woman, he studies her. He learns her likes, dislikes, habits and hobbies. But after he wins her heart and marries her, he often stops learning about her.If the amount he studied her before marriage was equal to a High School Degree, he should continue to learn about her until he gains a college degree, a Master’s Degree and ultimately  Doctorate Degree. It is a lifelong journey that draws his heart ever closer to hers.”  – Caleb Holt

                        Look at this as a movie about relationship and how less energy we spend on making our relationships better, but concentrating more on our anger, dislikes, others’ imperfection. The life is not about achieving something and than enjoying the results, it is about keep moving and getting to know better yourself and others to be able to give the best to the World.

                        12. The Pursuit of Happyness: Take action.

                        The Pursuit of Happyness

                          “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.” – Chris Gardner

                          A touching and inspiring movie based on true story. You have a choice to be stuck where you are and keep complaining or take your life in your hands, decide where you wanna be and no matter what is happening here and now, keep moving towards your goal. See the clear steps and without looking around or back, or let others’ success or troubles make you doubt about yourself.

                          13. The Intouchables: Be honest.

                          The Intouchables

                            What is your first reaction when you see somebody who has any kind of disabilities? Pity …..?

                            But what they really want to have is the same attitude, acceptance and not reminding that they are different, it is just our eyes what see, but deep inside, they are a unique part of Universe as all of us, they have Soul, mind, Body, spirit….dreams, will and love above all of it. We are so used to wear masks, to pretend, we don’t know how to be honest and that honesty is what makes things real and filled with love.

                            14. Life of Pi: Be humble.

                            Life of Pi

                              “You know, I left so much behind: my family, the zoo, India, Anandi. I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go. But what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye. I was never able to thank my father for all I learned from him. To tell him, without his lessons I would never have survived. I know Richard Parker’s a tiger but I wish I had said, “It’s over. We survived. Thank you for saving my life. I love you, Richard Parker. You’ll always be with me. May God be with you.” – Adult Pi Patel

                              Movie which has so many levels and how you see it will depend on your consciousness and openness. The story about how young boy survived in the ocean with tiger. Does the tiger symbolise his Ego? Imagination? Movie which makes you think. With beautiful views and music. Learn to let it go, to forgive, be humble and stand up for yourself.

                              15. Grace of Monaco: Stay strong.

                              Grace of Monaco

                                Put other’s life, love and harmony in first place and not to think what you want. Be strong and change yourself to change the world towards love and harmony.

                                16. The Angriest Man in Brooklyn: Change to love, not to hate.

                                The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

                                  “Sharon Gill: The important thing is, we find your brother and get him admitted to a hospital immediately. Make sure he remains calm and does nothing to raise his blood pressure.

                                  Aaron Altmann: Like?

                                  Sharon Gill: Anger.

                                  Aaron Altmann: And you’ve met my brother?”

                                  It is a chance to see how we seamlessly get angry and dissatisfied about our life and ourselves and start loosing love and kindness to outer world. To look at our rush and stress and think how much we do to change it or letting it ruin our life step by step.

                                  No matter what you do always is question how you do it. May each moment inspire you to become a better person and to see yourself without masks.

                                  Enjoy watching!
