My personal attitude is to find at least 5 positive things on every day and be happy even from usual things. Sunrise in the morning is also one of those things that can make me happy ... even though it may sound weird, I'm happy from nice weather, good lunch or even when I can help some tourists in Prague to find their way I would say that positive approach is essential for you success, even in GMAT.

- Waking up early in the morning definitely makes me feel great. Somehow, it always gives me those few moments to clear my head.

- A cloudy day. There is something about it that perks me up. Strange, I know.

- Intelligence and Innocence

- Some movies have always inspired me.

I love blizzards, rain, snow and clouds as well... makes me want to wrap myself into a nice blanket and read a book or watch a movie... speaking of which... anyone wants to present their list of favorite movies?

I like the moview that make me think, but sometimes watch the regular Hollywood happy-ending chick flicks... not very often though. Here is a couple of movies I like

The English Patient
Cache (recent French production... vague ending... many in the US didn't like it)
The Schindler's List (very powerful ending as well as the whole picture)
The Emperor's Club
and other classics...

please feel free to continue the list of must-see pictures...

I love rain. Almost all the time when it rains on the weekends, I ride my mountain bike to a grassy field and enjoy the feeling of rain drops falling on my face.

What I love most about the rain is the smell of first rain of the reason or rain after few weeks of a dry spell.

Actually I'm surprised by your answers; I never thought that MBA-aspirants do things like that. Climbing mountains, sailing, golf etc.; that are the things they do, I thought.

Personally I adore thunderstorms. Egally if it is warm or cold, lying in the grass, being touched by thousands of little hands on my face and skin, listening to the reverberation of the thunder, devoting oneself to the power of nature, a nature that one tries to control or better to use for personal and collective needs, a nature you're essentially dependend of, generally and in this moment, in which one strike can bring you down.

After that, wet and shivery, you're mind is freed from heavy thoughts, the many tiny problems that make you confuse, and you're left with nothing else than you.

It's exactly the feeling, while and after the storm, people know who make extremesports.

OK, this is kinda weird for a guy, but I love a good romantic movie.

Same goes for epic themes. The Last Samurai is one of my favorites.

like cloudy days, especially early in the morning when I go out for my jog, I simply love those rain drops drop on my face when I jog..and if there's a cool breeze blowing along with it, it gets even better..also like the smell of the earth when it has just rained, I think it is the best perfume on earth !!

speaking of good movies...Shawshank Redemption, Schindler's List, Dennis the Menace, Chocolat (French), Gladiator...

No feeling can match the early morning freshness on a cloudy day.
The scent rejuvenates my senses like none other. I just like running till I'm exhausted and then when after a short rest I am back to my feet, its the same excitement again.

Also, there's the winter when u r cozy in ur blanket with a hot piping coffe or tea and a good movie playing along. Speaking of which, here's a list of my all time favourite movies :

Gladiator ,Ghost ,LOTR , Schindler's List ,Cindrella Man ,A.I ,Notting Hill (seen 12 times already) ,When Harry met Sally, City Of Angels, Face-Off......

To me what motivates me is my yesterday! If I really did great yesterday I just want to repeat it-- work out till I get tired; work at job and resolve tough issues and work so hard that my eyes start popping; great dinner and time with family followed by some volunteering work some days (At present I simply read my â€œASHA for Educationâ€
