Success expert Mark Kaye says "Life's most important lessons can be found on the silver screen. Put down that book, go to the movies, and make all your dreams come true!!!"

Radio host and motivational speaker Mark Kaye says, “Don’t waste your time with dull self-help books and expensive seminars. The life lessons you need to succeed can be found at your local multiplex.”

According to Kaye, the five films nominated for this year’s “Best Picture” are perfect examples of “self-help films.” Each has important secrets for personal success:

•    THE AVIATOR stresses the importance of a clear vision, unwavering focus, and courage in the face of adversity. Howard Hughes is the ultimate example of how man can overcome great odds and accomplish great things when undaunted by failure or negativity.

•    FINDING NEVERLAND reminds us of the power and importance of imagination. Before anything “is,” it is an “image” in someone’s mind. The automobile, the iPod, Chicken McNuggets, Harry Potter…all these things started as ideas. Only in our dreams can we begin to see our realities.

•    MILLION DOLLAR BABY is a fantastic parable about the value of teamwork and the importance of collaborating with experts. No one succeeds alone. It is also a fantastic lesson about the importance of taking risk. Great opportunities are sometimes found in the most unlikely places.

•    RAY opens our eyes to the power of man to overcome obstacles. No matter what life throws our way, we can work to overcome it. If the desire is strong enough, there is no wall that cannot be knocked down. The only thing that stands in the way of your success is you.

•    SIDEWAYS imparts the importance of forgetting past defeats and looking toward the future. Defeat and rejection are the most important parts of success. Without having failed when will you know when you’ve truly succeeded?

“Keep in mind that three of these films are biographical,” says Kaye. “The Aviator, Finding Neverland, and Ray are the true life stories of powerful and successful men who garnered tremendous fame and acquired great fortune. Who better to learn from then them? Besides, self-help books don’t come with popcorn and soda.”
