Before you move ahead with the article, I would recommend to read our previous article titled “Life Is Journey Not Destination”. In the article we have talked about outcomes that people can expects from their lives is endless. Life is full of hope, setbacks, success, struggle, win and failures. But still life is beautiful and it is our responsibility to keep moving ahead with optimism in pursuit of making most of our lives and achieving our dreams. Dreams may have different definition for different people.
Today, we have come up with the list of the movies that one should definitely watch in order to change their perspective on life and fill positivity, hope, faith and enthusiasm to live their life and attain maximum.
The Shawshank Redemption: First in our recommendation list is The Shawshank Redemption. Based on the Stephen King’s story, movie is one of the best example of friendship, hope, faith, positivity and perseverance. Main character Andy Dufresne is sentenced for two consecutive life imprisonment in the case involving him for the murders of his wife and her lover, though Andy didn’t commit the crimes. His perseverance helped him to stay alive with hope, which resulted in making successful escape from Shawshank prison.
Forrest Gump: Second place in our list is taken by Tom Hank’s starrer Forrest Gump. It is classic story of simple man with childlike innocence, who achieves everything in life. And it also exemplify the phrase “Good Things Happen to Good People”.
Rocky: Rocky series is full of powerful motivational dialogues and one of my favourite is “Going in one more round when you don’t think you can. That’s what makes all the difference in your life.” Rocky in based on the story written by Sylvester Stallone, who also plays the main actor in the film. Stallone himself has a motivational story behind when he came up with Rocky script but focusing on the films. It is story of a common man who believes in the American dream and get selected to take on the world heavyweight champion, Apollo Creed.
