My Top 5 Inspiring Movies

COACH CARTER

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. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

RUDY

‘….my whole life, people have been telling me what I could do and couldn’t do. I’ve always listened to them, believed what they said. I don’t want to do that any more.” – Daniel ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger

GRIDIRON GANG

“You’re a tough kid, Willie, but you give up on yourself way too easy.
You’re a good football player, too. I think you may even be great.
And I’m gonna push you until we find out.
We gonna start with the circles to the front.”

“What are you lookin’ at? Don’t look at them. They ain’t gonna help ya out here, Willie.

Ya got no homeboys, ya got no help!
Ya damn sure ain’t got no gun! And ya can’t run away!
Ya got nobody but yourself, but, goddamn it, that’s all you need.
Believe in yourself and knock me on my ass! “

ROCKY BALBOA

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!” – Rocky Balboa

PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS

 “Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something. Not even me. Alright?…You got a dream? You gotta protect it…People can’t do something themselves…they wanna tell you you can’t do it….You want something, go get it. Period.”
