Inspiring quotes from classic movies you should live by

Motivation comes in all shapes and size, including quotes from famous movies. Your favorite movie lines can serve as a great motivator to get you right back up and moving.

“Great men are not born great; they grow great.”

- The Godfather (1972)

No one is born with massive amounts of knowledge, skills, or expertise in anything. To gain all that, you need to go through it by experience.

If you’re one of those people who think they know it all, here’s some news for you: You don’t! The first hurdle you must jump to succeed is overcoming your own arrogance – it can be your worst enemy if mismanaged.

An unhealthy mentality is thinking that you know everything, because, quite frankly, we all don’t. In a time of learning, nothing beats experience.

“Don’t tell me I can’t do it; don’t tell me it can’t be done!”

- The Aviator (2004)

Along the way of entrepreneurship, you are going to hear a lot of negative things from naysayers. People are skeptical, and they could do virtually anything to drag you down.

But are you going to let them hold you back? Are you going to let their own doubts weigh you down? Are you just going to listen to their toxicity?

Don’t let the insecurities of others turn into yours. Your attitude should be that anything is possible.

“Lesson number one: Don’t underestimate the other guy’s greed.”

– Scarface (1983)

Some people will try anything to stop you from your climb to success, and they will also do anything to replace your success with theirs.

The higher you get, the more people want to be in your place.

Never underestimate anything – people have a knack for doing all sorts of things that you never knew they would consider doing in order to get something. Obstacles will come in your way even at the best of moments.

Things happen. Things change. But to succeed, you have to change your habits right along with them.

“Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something - not even me. You got a dream? You got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can’t do it. You want something - go get it. Period.”

– The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)

Some people, no matter what, just won’t be able to see that you’ve got what it takes to achieve your big dream - but that’s not your problem.

Instead of wasting your time on haters and non-believers, work on getting to the top of the mountain so you can prove that you can do anything you set your mind to.
