Motivation initiates, leads, and controls goal-oriented behavior. Motivation is of two types, ‘Internal’ and ‘External,’ Internal motivation depends on values and ethics that come from within you. You can bring permanent values and principles by changing your attitudes toward things. The movie plays its role here, discovers your perspectives toward different things, and improves them wherever requires.
And the second one is ‘External,’ which temporarily affects your mental state, and anyhow can lose it after some time. Sometimes, you involve your core values to be someone, which leads to temporary change.
Try to get inspiration and understand your core values within you and then improve them as a permanent change because you are always an entrepreneur, not for one day.
We are watching movies for permanent or temporary mood changes; it totally depends on us.
