  1. 1. It’s a little difficult adding my entire work experience into one presentation…… So I decided to give you only a glimpse of my creative side.
  2. 2. Watching movies is definitely my most revered activity. “Don’t ever let someone tell you, you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period. All right?” – The Pursuit of Happiness. (Image Source: Google)
  3. 3. So how do I look spending some of my free time?
  4. 4. But how do movies help me develop personally and professionally? Watching a lot of movies has made me more analytical and helped me develop a mind that thinks out of the box. I am able to solve problems in different manners, and hence, I feel that cinema not only relaxes me, but also has made me a very creative young man. For example, watching films by the art-house genre directors such as David Lynch or Stanley Kubrick makes me look at one thing from ten different angles.
  5. 5. At EY (Ernst and Young), where I had to deal with various top clients, problem solving was considered to be a form of art itself. But, you need to study art from a lot of different viewpoints if you want to decipher it completely. Even the Mona Lisa needn’t be observed only from one position, as it’s eyes follow you wherever you stand. I could negotiate with the client effectively, as I could look at his problem differently and hence could also solve it in a more time-efficient and result-oriented manner, thus helping me develop into a successful professional.
  6. 6. But what gives me the most pleasure while watching a particular movie?
  7. 7. Movies which talk about the achievement of success by an ordinary human being really pique my interest. Since I am a very ambitious person, watching movies like “The Pursuit of Happiness”, “The Social Network”, “Forrest Gump”, “Rocky” etc., instill a lot of inspiration within me. Watching ordinary people attain success in whichever field they pursue shows me that if I put in the hard work and determination in my life, even I can attain success and even I will be spoken about in History books later on.
  8. 8. As all of us know, without some source of inspiration, it is slightly difficult to develop the hunger to achieve success in life. Some people admire real life businessmen, some listen to music, but there are a few sects of people who get inspired by watching motivating movies. I am one of the latter.
