I have seen a lot of students who want to have their own venture rather than ending up in a small cubicle. Having our own venture is not an easy task at all. Apart from absolute determination, patience, and passion – motivation play a key role in making you work at your peak. I have seen my friends working very hard but they are in the same place as before. This can be due to the lack of motivation every single day of their work.

Everyone has found their ways to remain happy and motivated all through the day. Some of them practice motivation of reward while some of them practice motivation of fear. One of the most exciting ways to find motivation is through movies. Fiction can often tell us what the actual reality is. There are many movies made for the audience to provide motivation. Apart from the motivation, it also teaches them to see their lives from a different perspective.
