We're gathering a few words from our favorite movies to give you so much inspiration and good vibrations this year, Candy Girls. We know you all have a lot of things on your bucket lists and have set goals to achieve by the end of the year. We also know we all need a little push to get us started, so here are seven movie lines to give you that.

  1. For when you're thinking of just doing something because it pleases other people: "You cannot live your life to please others. The choice must be yours." —The White Queen, Alice in Wonderland. Remember that you have only one life to live and you better live it the way you want to.

  2. For when you're afraid to take a risk and grab that opportunity infront of you: "Our lives are defined by opportunities; even the ones we miss." —Benjamin Button, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. As cliche as it may sound, remember that you only regret the chances you haven't taken.

  3. For those moments when you're feeling lazy: "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." —Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. There is no point in having big dreams if you don't really get out of bed and do something to make them happen.

  4. For when you're thinking that your dreams are too big for you: "There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. However bad life may seem, while there is life, there is hope." —Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything. You have your whole life to work on those dreams, so don't be scared to dream big. Give every day your best shot and you just might find the chance of a lifetime to make them happen.

  5. For when someone discourages you: "Don't ever let somebody tell you you can't do something, not even me. Alright? You dream, you gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you you can't do it. If you want something, go get it. Period." —Chris Gardner, The Pursuit of Happyness. Don't believe what discouragements tell you. Remember that you have the last say on making your goals in life happen. If you give up now, you're allowing your haters to win. Who wants that? Carry on and work hard on your goals this year.

  6. For those moments when you're too busy working: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." —Ferris, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. In the middle of working on your ambitions and goals, don't forget to enjoy everything you have around you. It will prevent you from feeling exhausted and will remind you of the good things you have in life.

  7. For when you need to just look forward: "You're going to have to learn to let go." —Matt Kowalski, Gravity. Let go of the unnecessary baggage from your past because there's no use holding on to them. If you want to move forward, you have to let them go because they will just wear you down.
