"For me, real life is hard work. Making movies is like a vacation for my soul" -Guillermo del Toro
Are you struggling to find inspiration? Going through a stage in life where you are feeling unmotivated and uninspired can be quite difficult.
There are many wonderful things you can do to boost your inspiration quickly. However, there are two activities that are by far more powerful than all the others. The first inspiration-boosting activity is to listen to inspirational songs. The second thing you can do to massively boost your inspiration levels is to watch inspirational movies.
Movies are a wonderful source of inspiration. Especially when you’re running short on inspiration, movies can quickly reignite your excitement.
