I just got inspiration for writing this at 3:20 AM after watching a movie listed below (not telling you yet read on). Immediately after watching the movie I worked out and began writing this post for the blog. Now when I mean the top movies to get you hype, I mean to get you in the hustling mood. To give you that boost for getting ready to make money, workout, or really anything to get you pumped and hyped. I feel very motivated after watching these movies and it’ll help you get off your butt too and get primed to kick some ass.
Top Movies (In no particular order)
1. Get Rich or Die Tryin’
One of my favorite movies in the hip-hop/crime category is Get Rich or Die Tryin’ which is loosely based upon Curtis Jackson’s life (aka the rapper 50 Cent). He plays the main role of Marcus who sells drugs at a young age to support himself after the mysterious disappearance of his mother. As the story builds Marcus maintains his dream to become an artist after all the drama and “beef” surrounding him. This is the movie I wrote about in the intro. It is bound to get you pumped and ready to completely obliterate anything in your way to succeed. If you’re not fond of the hardcore themes of films like this, I have more options for you!
Notes: The film has the same name of 50 Cent’s album that is perfect for working out to. Curtis Jackson also published a book called “The 50th Law” which was co-written by Robert Greene who wrote the infamous “48 Laws of Power”. Both great reads.
2. The Wolf of Wall Street
If you want an example of what obliterating is when it comes to business, take a look at Jordan Belfort. Based on a true story, we see Leonardo diCaprio reincarnate a determined stockbroker who will stop for nothing to get paid. Again, this is a very hardcore movie with tons, tons, and TONS of sexual and drug content so if you are not looking for something that hardcore, keep scrolling. But, if you’re up for it, you’ll learn some important key factors in fulfilling your goals and crushing your industry while watching a very entertaining and funny movie. (Mind you, the drugs and other stuff, NOT key factors lol)
If Rocky itself doesn’t fill you with that motivational, hustling mood, then Sylvester Stallone’s story in making the film has to. Down on his luck, Stallone got down and wrote the whole entire Rocky script withing a day. That is the definition of grind! Nobody would buy the movie from but he kept pushing. Finally, he struck a deal (a lot less than he anticipated granted) which allowed him to play the role of Rocky. The movie itself is about a someone in a similar financial situation who gets the chance to fight the heavyweight world champion, The, Apollo Creed.
4. The Social Network
A retelling of the story of the origins of Facebook is portrayed in this 2010 film. Although the movie mainly focuses on the legal struggles Mark Zuckerberg faced while starting up Facebook.com, we also see the vigorous hustle Zuckerberg had in starting up one of the most popular and profitable sites in the world in about a month. This movie is a great influence for artists and entrepreneurs alike as we see someone mastering their craft, publishing, and monetizing it for the whole world to experience.
