If you’re a person with concrete goals and ambitions, then you should take your inspiration from some of the following movies. Have the will and the courage to create your own brand, and globalize your product, for seemingly huge success.
1. Boiler Room (Directed by Ben Younger, 2000)
“You become an employee of this firm, you will make your first million within three years. I’m gonna repeat that – you will make a million dollars.”
This movie focuses on a college drop out who used to run his own casino, that was illegal, and operated in his rented apartment. Luckily, he aces at an interview in the stockbroker firm JT Marlin in New York City.Due to a lot of pressure from his family, he continued to work in the place and realized that the firm made its revenues through dubious means. He has to make a choice between his moral values and lust for wealth.
2. Jerry Maguire (Directed by Cameron Crowe, 1996)
“But if anybody else wants to come with me, this moment will be the ground floor of something real and fun and inspiring and true in this godforsaken business and we will do it together! Who’s coming with me…?”
Jerry Maguire, who was an inspirational personality describes the success of a sports agent, in this movie. This person was fired from the previous company for being too biased towards the clients. Having been fired, he starts his own brand from a scratch and hustles to achieve his goals.
3. Wall Street (Directed by Oliver Stone, 1987)
“Stop going for the easy buck and start producing something with your life. Create, instead of living off the buying and selling of others.”
The story revolves around Bud Fox who was a very ambitious Wall Street stockbroker. He is taken under the influence by Gordon Gekko, who was a corporate raider, and never stopped at anything to accumulate wealth.Gordon manages to corrupt and manipulate Bud to the extent that the latter trades on illegal inside information for him.
4. The Social Network (Directed by David Fincher, 2010)
“Ma’am, I know you’ve done your homework and so you know that money isn’t a big part of my life, but at the moment I could buy Mt. Auburn Street, take the Phoenix Club, and turn it into my ping-pong room.”
This movie is perhaps the best one to motivate an individual to build his own brand and make millions out of it. The story is apparently about how Mark Zuckerberg created the mighty social media website, Facebook. It highlights his struggle, hustle, motivation and hard work which led him to success.
