As a student, I actually love watching movies in which there are more study activities with much students in character of the movie. I was able to come across a great movie which I will never forget in my life and this movie is titled "Akeelah and the Bee".
I never knew the movie would turn out so interesting and memorable for me because I only had the intention of having fun with my free time by watching an interesting movie which made me selected it because it involves much students and schools in character.
The scene I found most motivating was when Akeelah told his coach that he was scared to go for the Spelling Bee competition. His coach told her to read a post or quote which was pasted on his wall. She went straight to that wall and she started reading the inspirational quotes which states that ;
>"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
After reading this she felt motivated and inspired to go for the quiz. Her confidence level was highly developed to take part in that big competition and she was able to win the competition even though she and her opponent spelt all the words correctly till they were both given the first position.
I can't really get that scene out of my brain and I sometimes apply that quote she used whenever I need to be motivated. I don't mind watching that same movie over and over again because it is just too interesting.
Another movie scene I won't forget is "3 Idiots". The Indian movie in which Amir Khan was the leading actor who was named Rancho in the movie. I also love this movie very much and I can watch it everyday due to the great lessons I have learnt from it.
The motivating scene I can never forget in 3 Idiot was when the professor daughter wanted to give birth to a baby but there was no doctor available in that vicinity. The professor sent Rancho out of the school for some suspected activity that occurred from his friends. There was heavy rainfall and storm but Rancho and his friends were able to help Professor Lobo's daughter during her period of giving birth which was successful. Rancho made use of some instruments like car batteries for power, valve and other devices which were present in their environment without making use of any hospital equipment. The professor gave Rancho the pen and he told him that "You are an extraordinary student" with tears in his eyes.
I was just so touched and motivated by that scene and I can never forget that scene because it teaches me to use what I have to get what I want.
In conclusion, even though some people don't believe in watching movies because they see it as a waste of time. I always love to watch movies because I have a way of managing my time and I can tell you that I have learnt a lot of lessons just by watching movies. Those scenes are already captured in my mind and it can never be deleted because I love those scenes.
Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.
I don't have just one scene that was very motivating for me as I've watched quite some movies in my life, but from all of them I will choose The pursuit of happiness with Will Smith to talk about. In that movie Will Smith plays the character of a poor man, married with a child, that is trying desperately to make it to Wall Street and become a successful broker. Throughout his journey he faces situations from which some of us would probably end homeless. I remember one scene in which he lost his house and his wife left him also and he was on the streets with his child. He went to a metro station entered the bathroom and the child started crying because he wanted to go home but he couldn't tell him that they don't have a home anymore so he made up a story with dinosaurs for the child and used toilet paper to decorate the bathroom and did all that until the child fell asleep. At some point in time he managed to get an interview with someone that could get him into Wall Street and he had to also paint the dorm that he was living with his son and got to that interview with only a painted shirt on him and no shoes in front of some very important people that could hire him but the way he used his humor and intelligence he convinced these people that appearances are not all that matter and they hired him. For me that movie was the perfect example of how a string will, determination and well established goal can take you anywhere. I would watch that movie any time. Definitely one that I would recommend as a great motivational one.
There are literally hundreds of movies which are very inspirational, different languages, different themes. Some movies like 'Wild' & 'Eat, pray, Love' may inspire someone to take a break from their hectic lives to go on soul searching, while some movies like 'Pursuit of happiness' & 'Jerry Maguire' just pumps you up with don't give up feeling. (Although nothing can amass up to the pursuit of happiness, Sorry Jerry.), There are movies like 'Forrest Gump', 'Bucket List' which leaves you wondering about your own life. Movies like 'swades', '3 idiots', 'RocketSingh: Salesman of the year' which makes you quit your routine and pursuit you dreams (Bollywood, ain't all bad). And so on, Movies inspire in different ways. But if I had to pick one, It would be my favorite boxer Rocky.
There are other boxing movies too which are very good and inspiring but Rocky has a different tone. And I am not just referring to first part only but the entire series (Even though there are few screw up in middle and God!!! I hope they are not making the same with the Creed 2) but that seems like the irony, it is the perfect journey of an underdog. And Rocky is the best movie in the entire franchise and I have a feeling that it will remain the same for many years.
This one movie has that appeal to your underdog. Let's be honest we all had been provided with opportunities that we thought we weren't ready for, the opportunity where we had a shot of doing something which at that moment seemed ridiculous or too much to handle. But left us wondering 'What if'. But the story of this boxer is same as ours, he was provided with an opportunity. But unlike us he accepted the challenge and the best part he treated it as no big deal. And undergoes necessary training and development to live upto the challenge. And his tenacity and determination is what gets him to face the champion and emerges victorious.
Whenever I see the movie or think about it, The only question is if I was presented an opportunity to take on champion in my field of work, Will I accept it? And my answer is same as yours.
Oh!! And the movie quotes and dialogues are kick ass, But you already know that too... :-D
The most motivating movie that I have seen is "The peaceful warrior". It was one of the movies that my special someone recommended me. It is about the college guy that is selfish and so proud of himself but there was a sudden change in his life. One day , some stranger who he named Socrates shakes his confidence and keeps on asking questions about life . Then one day, he had an accident and after that he was supposed to give up in his dreams but the Socrates man keeps teaching him life experienced lessons.
This movie really changes the way I see my life right now . I did not know what life is but when I watched that movie. I was really moved. At first I was not interested to watch this movie when my boyfriend recommended this but when I saw it . I was really amazed and I learned a lot of lessons from it. Anyway, I hope you can try to watch it . I hope you will like it too.
Undoubtedly the movie and scene that comes to mind faster is one of Pursuit of hapiness, the film of a man who had to get ahead with his son despite everything they had against, and is that this man can overcome having to live in shelters to become a successful man.
From this movie there is a particular scene that has become my personal mantra, and that is when Chris Gardner (Will Smith) tells his son to never let anyone tell him that he can't do something and that he must always give everything to achieve his goal.
The entire film is a work of art in terms of motivation, immersing us in the pain, joy and effort of a man to get his life and his son forward.

I remember watching Ice Castles as a kid and wanting nothing more than to be an ice skater. (Preferably without a terrible accident that caused blindness, though.) So maybe the movie is a bit cheesy and admitting that I had a little crush on Robby Benson certainly dates me as a child of the '70s, but it motivated me into trying something I'd never tried before. And that's exactly what a great sports movie can do.
Some of my favorite motivational sports movies are:
The good doctor and the particular scene was when a virtual reality machine was used to carry out a theoretical surgery to see the likely turnout of events that would be carried out during the operation, something about the scene gave me hope for the future, a way operation could be carried out to determine the likely cause of failure or things that might go wrong during the operation making them plan ahead of every events.
Also, seems similar activity is already been carried out in certain region, cant quite recall the place but after watching the movie, I was really curious, just goes to show the application of virtual reality has gone pass our regular gaming and different ideas is been brought in daily about it.
It has to be this scene and it has an analysis attached to it that I totally agree. Mumen Rider is really quite a character to admire.
Well its an interesting question. Movies are a great source of learning and entertainment to make our time more lively. There are a tons of amazing and brilliant characters which are commended for many reasons and thousands of movies loved by many.
For me *Enemy at the Gates* is the most thrilling and motivating movies I have ever seen. In this movie their is love, action, thrill and excitement. Resilience is shown in a fantastic way. *Zeitsev* the sniper is a character who is a ray hope for his countrymen. Even in adverse circumstance he is not born to give up.
The movie is set in the background of world war II in the city of Stalingrad which is about to fall in the hands of the enemy. The battle was about to be won by the enemy but the resilient shown by the brave people of the city is worth commending . It is a must watch movie to have a glance into a bit of history.
