The fictional world at times influences our mind so much that it becomes a source of inspiration to achieve something in life. These movies have the power to test our limits and summon those great passions which drives us to the top. A motivational movie is an excellent way to get yourself psyched about achieving something in life like the entrepreneurs who started Apple, Paytm, Facebook and even the Tata conglomerate.

My pick for the top 10 best motivational movies for entrepreneurs:

The Social Network (2010)

The movie is a biographical drama of Mark Zuckerberg startup project Facebook and the processes. It is an inspirational story which is skilfully presented through best storytelling and direction by David Fincher. The movie is a fine example for those young minds who want to achieve their goals.

It discloses the perfect gateway to make your small scale business reach those heights that no one ever imagined it to be.

Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)

Maybe some of you are wondering why watch this movie. Well, this movie is based on the initial life of two legends namely Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. It shows how they thought of an extraordinary aspect of technology revolution and tried to create something which was unexpected for the people of that time. The movies bring out some interesting facts about the life of the founders of Apple and Microsoft.

Forrest Gump (1994)

It is a story about an average man who is not so intelligent, but wins life in his own way. He has good intentions but low IQ. The latter did not stop him from achieving any extraordinary things in life. He joins the army, he builds a famous shrimp fishing fleet, wins medals and meets President so many times for achieving so much.

Forrest Gump is an inspiration to many who think that to achieve greater heights in life, one needs to have extraordinary brains.

You don’t.

The Godfather (1972)

The movie is a classic but not loved by all. But it is one of those movies which inspires you to learn many tactics of life that can help you to rise above it all. Don’t think of it as a movie about planned crime, but think of it as a movie where Michael Corleone took a small family business and changed it into a powerful family business in the country.

The whole storyline illustrates different phases of life and what it took to get to the top and remain there. (2001)

It is a documentary film directly related to entrepreneurs. The biopic observes the rise and fall of actual startup GovWorks that lifted up $60 million from Hearst Interactive Media, KKR, the New York Investment Fund, and Sapient.

It gives you great insight into the dotcom period, its times of boom and bust, while serving as a warning fiction on how friendships can easily be endangered by business alliances.

Office Space (1999)

This movie is for those who have always hated their 9 to 5 job lifestyle. The American comedy mocks the corporate way of life of the 90s company.

The main lead in the film wants to get rid of the job but instead gets promoted. But that frustration is still seen in his behavior as he wants to do something else.

The movie is a perfect example for those who want to achieve something in life instead of sitting and criticizing about the circumstances.

Catch Me If You Can (2002)

Again, we have this movie on crime, but believe me friends, these crimes shown in the movie illustrate many hidden talents of an enterprising individual you will not find in ordinary movies.

It is a classic movie that demonstrates the ground-breaking journey of a young man with his skill mastery. It touches all the important elements of related to entrepreneur’s journey like, problem solving, turning good out of bad, and the hustle to reach victory.

Wall Street (1987)

Yet another great example of fiction which illustrates how a young mind can push his limits in the search of power and success. Wall Street unravels the subject via a striving stockbroker who travels through the lucrative and fast changing drives of Wall Street, implementing the “greed is good” mantra.

The story clearly emphasizes how a vulnerable young mind can get carried away by the high-profile standard of living that goes together with wealth. It is indeed the best way of showing the positives and negatives of business world.

The Usual Suspects (1995)

It is must-watch fiction for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to learn various business strategies in a specific surprise package. The story line covers various factors like power and influence, leadership union, long-term business approach, modernism and resourcefulness, which serve as valued acumen for already established and inspiring business tycoons.

It is a good dose of psychological thriller with an ambitious kinky ending.

Cocktail (1988)

The young heartthrob of that time, Tom Cruise, stars in the movie, Cocktail, which explains how a professional degree plays an important role in getting your dream job.

The movie is worth watching as it illustrates the real life story of a regular boy with high aspirations that gets him the life of success he always dreamt of.
