5 Documentaries to Inspire

“Whatever human endeavor we choose, as long as we live our truth, it is success.”
― Kamal Ravikant, Live Your Truth

Documentaries allow people to view worlds different from their own and learn something valuable from them. Especially in an academic setting, there is a lot of thought put into what one would like to do for the rest of their life, and how to accomplish it.

In this list of documentaries you will find extraordinary individuals who prove themselves to be outstanding examples of what it truly means to live your own truth. All share what it means to pair passion with an occupation, and how success manifests itself to them. There is no set experience or background required to find success, it’s really just all about what makes you tick.
