The Pursuit of Happiness (2006)
IMDb rating: 8/10
Entrepreneur, Christopher (Chris) Gardener
Finding happiness can be challenging, particularly when you are surrounded by issues. This movie, which is based on the memoir of the same name, tells the true story of Christopher Gardener’s rise from poverty to wealth.
He may have achieved success as a result of his unwavering commitment to provide his son all he had never had in his own life. In order to eventually realise his dream, Gardener overcame everything by himself while taking care of his son, including losing his roof, ending up on the street, and sleeping in public restrooms at underground train stations.
It tells the tale of a man who loses everything before gaining it all again.
You must watch The Pursuit of Happiness if you want to discover how to maintain your optimism in the face of adversity.
“You’ve got a dream. You must keep it safe. Nothing can be accomplished by an individual. They want to let you know that you can’t do it. You should go obtain what you want if you want it. Period” [From the movie] Poverty is never an excuse; effort and hard work, not chance or fate, define success.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
IMDb rating: 8.2/10
Jordan Belfort is an entrepreneur.
This movie is based on the real-life experiences of Jordan Belfort, a successful stockbroker who lost everything to crime, corruption, and the FBI.
Although Belfort used unethical and unscrupulous methods to rise in his career, one cannot dispute the fact that he created an empire from nothing.
The necessity of building strong relationships with your staff is also emphasised in this movie since it will motivate them to go above and beyond for you and your business. As a result, the workplace becomes very small-group cohesive. An entrepreneur can learn from this movie that sometimes it is preferable to move backwards rather than forwards. Belfort might have been able to prevent things from disintegrating if he had quit the toxic business environment.
One must become an expert at persuasion and constantly be aware of their ideal clients. In order to ensure better understanding, they must also impart their knowledge to their staff and educate concepts simply.
