Top 5 Inspiring Movies (Netflix) That You Should Really Watch
These inspiring movies (Netflix) won’t only just provide you with a great dose of entertainment but they will also let you in on some life-changing lessons.
The key to be happy, successful and fulfilled is to gain knowledge. And learning how to apply that knowledge.
The most conventional way to gather knowledge is considered books, Now I am not disagreeing with this, the knowledge in those books have been collected and produced by world class geniuses.
But movies or for that matter series have a way to present this knowledge in reality in such a way that it might have a larger impact on people than the books.
If you were a 70yr old person who read that ‘age is just a number’ in a book, you might understand it but you might not be able to fully believe in it – you might have residual doubts;
But when you watch “The Intern” and you see Mr. Ben Whittaker – a 70yr old person searching for a job, making friendships, having relationships, being confident and cool and live his life fully; Then I think you fully believe in a concept because you now understand it completely as you saw it being applied “in real life”.
Having a learner’s mindset will allow you to gain knowledge from even the most trivial places.
Why is it that most of the happy people around the world keep on giving examples such as “Have you ever seen a tree and how it……” or maybe “Do you know why wind blows……” – the point is they keep learning and taking lessons from everything.
Even when they’d be watching a movie or a series they would learn from the character’s mistakes and would learn from the character’s accomplishments.
So before moving ahead and jumping on to one of the below mentioned movies, just tell yourself 3 times – “I have a learner’s mindset” – This will help you get the most out of them.
Anyways, moving on my list of TOP 5 inspiring movies Netflix is given below in absolutely no particular order. They are miscellaneously ordered and hold equal importance for me.
