While browsing my extensive movie collection tonight (i.e. clearing my hard drive), I went through and made a note of the movies that really inspired me. Whether that be fitness, money, or just general ass kicking, here’s a few that stood out against the rest. Most of them are relatively recent.

I’m not a big Kutcher fan normally, but this movie is awesome.

What else do you need to inspire you?
I’m not gonna lie, this movie is just okay, plot-wise. 2012, the world is ending – nothing new to see here. However, it does such destruction throughout the movie but you can’t help but feel motivated. The whole world is literally swallowed up in a combination of earthquakes, volcanoes, and massive tsunamis.
What if this WAS your last day on Earth?
- Would you be happy with what you had done in your life, previously?
- How many regrets would you have? Could you live with them?
- Did you conquer your fears?
- Were you moving forward, or were you stagnant?
- Would you die a happy man?
Depending on your answers, you may have a lot of work to do.
