10 Movies That Inspire Us To Work Hard & Succeed

Movies that inspire us to work hard

“Most movies try to seduce us into forgetting we’re ‘only’ watching a movie,” Roger Ebert writes.

Dreams are the knights that’d always have a place in a kingdom.

Sometimes we see our dreams on the screen, and sometimes we dream about what we see on the screen. It may sound fanatic, I know.

Why don’t you give it a thought? You surely will get the answer.

Movies ( and books allegedly) have always given the source to think, beyond the hypothetical conscience.

The use of imagination, directiveness, and ideas to create something that temperamentally enriches the diverse fierce dimensions of the human mind.

Visual entertainment often looks like the dream we ‘watch’ in broad daylight (sometimes :)).

I would never accept that movies do it all for you better than books but, some movies do dive my thought backward. And when we add but, we see the probability, here I undertake the possibilities with widely stretched hands to hug the pleasure that a movie makes me feel at times.

Not everyone has the patience to read, and sometimes not even the time to endure the whirlpool through written words. I may sound harsh, but this is the way it is. Some of us want the visuals, graphics, and the bay to feel the continuity of something that is going on, be it emotional, inspirational or of any such kind that emphasizes to fast pace the settled routed thoughts, we humans wish to achieve – there help the “movies.”

Over the years, cinema has only pulled out the best outcomes of the human mind. I call them the dreaded unconscious kingdom of dreams we see, the number of people who have been there helping to quash the reality as something subtly conscious, to be understood and give empathy and a whirl of emotions that a human defies most of the times.

The potential for fostering creativity, compliance, strength, and so on; identifying the difficulty; probing for solutions, or formulating hypotheses about the shortfalls: testing and retesting these hypotheses and possibly refashioning and retesting them; and a rush in the spine to get what you aspire for, is acquainted through many such movies.

Movies That Inspire Us To Work Hard & Succeed

  • The Pursuit of Happyness


“ Don’t ever let somebody tell you. You can’t do something. Not even me. All right? 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 something, go get it. Period.”

This is one movie that has been leading many lives to prosper, and this, one of the many outstanding dialogues by Christopher Gardner to work hard and, earn. Earn what you deserve, nobody can stop you from reaching atop.

  • Freedom Writers

Freedom Writers

Sometimes a quote from the movie is all that is required“But even an ordinary secretary or a housewife or a teenager can, within their own small ways, turn on a small light in a dark room.”

You are the heroes. You are heroes every day.

  • Shawshank Redemption

The 1994 drama based on Stephen King’s novella, story of a banker who is accused of killing his wife and her lover, despite his claims of innocence, the movie emphasizes on maintaining one’s solicitousness when placed in a despondent backdrop. Protagonist’s probity is a prime theme in the story line, especially in prison, where integrity is lacking.  

Isaac M. Morehouse suggests that the film provides a great illustration of how characters can be free, even in prison, or unfree, even in freedom, based on their outlooks on life.

  • Dead Poet’s Society

Dead Poet’s Society

John Keating, a liberal English teacher, inspires his students to break free from the standards, go against the status quo and relish unapologetically.

  • 12 Angry Men

12 Angry Men

This is one of the all-time favorite films. The lack of exposition before we are thrown into the story doesn’t stop you from identifying the characters for what they are. One lone juror’s quest to change the minds of the others makes you wonder about the meaning of the word “possible.” It’s thrown around quite a bit in this film.

  • Rocky


In 2006, Rocky was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.Rocky is a satisfying, classic boxing movie offers some decent messages. “Rocky” is realistic about his goal. He does not need to win.

  • American Beauty

American Beauty

“It’s a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself. Makes you wonder what else you can do that you’ve forgotten about.”

  • Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Always look ahead and above yourself. Always try to improve on yourself. Always strive to elevate your craft.

  • The Impossible

The Impossible

Now this film is very difficult to watch at times as the characters fight to survive, but it’s one of the only meaningful and inspiring “disaster movies” that you will ever watch.

  • The Secret


Emotion regulation, brain activity, wonderland, and how we approach the energies around us.

I would like to end this article with a notable dialogue from the movie that inspire us to work hard, with the esteem, devotion, courage and reluctance even when nothing seems right.

“Reach out. Take a chance. Get hurt even. But play as well as you can. Go team, go! Give me an L. Give me an I. Give me a V. Give me an E. L-I-V-E. LIVE! Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room.” – Harold and Maude

We learn bit by bit. We watch movies.

And such movies are timeless classics.

I would love to hear about the reviews of the movies mentioned above and some recommendations too.
