TORONTO ON, September 11, 2013 – “I first saw the film Pleasantville at the Toronto International Film Festival and later it would help inspire me when I slipped into the darkest, lowest points of my life.” said Emmanuel Lopez, a Toronto based motivational speaker and award-winning illustrator and movie blogger. “Movies like The King’s Speech, Groundhog Day and It’s a Wonderful Life are excellent motivational resources that helped propel me to make life-changing choices.” Lopez shares his list of empowering films and key actions to building a resilient mindset through his new motivational talk “Indestructible Optimism: How Movies Inspire Your Best at Work & in Life”.
Also known as “Motivatorman”
, Lopez says his passion for films helped him create a successful illustration and communications company of over 15 years. Those same inspiring movies would later sustain his will to overcome depression, mid-life crisis, the unexpected death of a family member, and bankruptcy. Lopez says that seeing scenes where the hero, depressed and broken, persists in moving forward inspired him to do the same. King George VI (Colin Firth) in The King’s Speech is one such hero that won the People’s Choice Award at TIFF in 2010. Through his keynotes and lectures, Lopez teaches his key actions for success to professionals in the workplace, business owners and anyone going through unexpected crisis. “For those attending TIFF I always recommend that they take note of emotional reactions they get from a film because that can trigger the epiphany or “aha moment” for an answer to a current life or work challenge.”
During his adversities, Lopez documented his life challenges and the films that helped re-energize him through his blog “Movies that Motivate: The Adventures of Motivatorman!”
) With over 650 movie tips his blog has garnered global attention via social media leading to features in The Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007...
) and The New York Times. His first book, “Movies for Motivation: How to Stay Strong in Your Life & Career” is available now on Amazon Kindle with a foreword written by Toronto Film Critic Richard Crouse. Please visit: www.motivatorman.com
