Attitude is the compilation of how we view everything around us as well as reflecting what we think and feel towards something. It also influences our actions and decision-making which makes it all the more important. Nowadays, because of increasing problems, people are having a hard time in keeping up a good outlook in life.
However, attitudes and behaviors are easily influenced from external sources in the environment. The most common and influential external factor that can affect people is by watching television and/or movies. A recent survey shows that an average person will watch approximately 5,000 movies in their lifetime. It also revealed 10% of the people based their career paths on movies while 25% were influenced in choosing where they want to live.
Different movies can prompt varying responses to our mental capability and beliefs. Research revealed that the wrong kind of movie can affect a person negatively. Some movies can stress you further while other movies can make you gain weight. The good thing is that there are films that can motivate us to have a positive attitude.
Here are the most influential animated films promoting a better perspective in life:
1. The Lion King – Worry-free life & the art of moving forward
The Lion King has a lot to teach us. For one, it shows that maybe you just need some Hakuna Matata (No Worries) in your life. Panicking and stressing out will only make it worse for your situation and your health. Sure, it won’t solve your problems with work or pay your bills but it will calm you and give you some peace of mind to be able to think of a solution.
Every one of us has a past and everyone has something in their past that has hurt them. The severity may vary but the pain caused by our past still hurts. As Rafiki, the baboon stated, we can either run from it or learn from it. Running away from it and ignoring it is the easiest thing to do but it will still be there, haunting you. The only way for us to develop and grow to our full potential is to confront it. You have to be brave and face the pain and fear of the past and learn from it to move forward.
“The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it.” — Rafiki
2. Mulan – Empowering women & just be yourself
This movie introduced the gender discrimination that is present in the world. Responsibilities and roles are limited to women whose duty is to only give birth. However, the movie motivates women and shows them that they can be more when they want to and not limit themselves to how other people expect them to be.
Apart from empowering women, it also teaches you to be true to yourself despite the adversity that you will be facing in every corner for being that way. Challenges and struggles make us into better and stronger people. Never give up even if you fail because being yourself is your greatest weapon to overcome the problems that are blocking your way to your goals.
“The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.” – The Emperor
3. Ratatouille – Dreams do come true & everyone has talent
This animated movie urges you to follow and chase after your dreams no matter what as long as you know you’ve got what it takes. Everyone can do something such as cooking, writing or acting, showing the difference between a normal talent from a great talent. Those who can be brave enough to try something new and accept failure will achieve great things.
The movie also portrays talent and genius as coming from anyone and anywhere. Even the lowest person can achieve this great talent as long as they take courage to improve it and develop it to perfection. You just have to think that you are talented and that talent can only be wielded by you and no one else so take care of it, improve it and cherish it.
“Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere.” – Food critic, Anton Ego
4. The Princess And The Frog – Success is hard work & never lose sight of what’s important
The Princess and the Frog revealed the value of perseverance and hard work to reach your dreams. You have to plan ahead and do your best to overcome the possible obstacles along your way. You have to face struggles and hardships but always look forward and look at your dream as an inspiration. Although daydreaming and wishing isn’t all that bad, what truly makes you see the results you want is putting in 100% effort all the time.
“My daddy never did get what he wanted. But he had what he needed. He had love! He never lost sight of what was really important.” – Tiana
Being an adult doesn’t mean that you can’t watch animated films anymore. Animated films are made and produced by fellow adults and successful professionals also. With it’s light hearted plot and witty humor, it might only take a little laugh here or a small smile there to jumpstart positivity back in your life. Life doesn’t need to be serious and problematic all the time.
Positivity is to never give up in order to become a winner in life because a winner is a loser who just tried again. Whether you struggle with your business, weight loss, or education it just takes the right motivation to spark a positive attitude, and it takes a positive attitude to gain the success that you are looking for.
Motivation for a positive attitude comes in different forms and in this case, this form satisfies the child in us. A child that seeks the happy, simple and stress-free life that we once had.
