When it comes to finding motivation and inspiration to push on, music is one helluva mule kick in the pants!
We know what it's like to feel beat down, rolled over and left to dry out in the burning sun.
This is the very reason we compiled this list of 10 Motivational Songs that will light that fire and get you back in the fight.
Most people have heard of at least three songs, how many do you know? Let's find out...
Number #1 Lose Yourself - Eminem
"Lose Yourself" is one of those tracks that will get you pumped when you need to take out that 500lb gorilla in the room. This is that motivation for when there is no way to go but through the obstacle that has you losing your lunch 30 seconds before showtime!
So when you need that pick me up that won't put you down..this is what you play \m/
Number 2 - Eye Of The Tiger (Survivor) - Rocky Theme Music
Who hasn't taken a beating once or twice in their lifetime. It's no laughing matter and it's no where near a peaceful resolution to any situation of stress.
In a moment like this, you need to ignite the "Eye Of The Tiger". You have to move on blind-faith, fury and passion, it's the only thing that will get you through.
You've got to rise above odds you don't even know exist. You must become greater than the storm that is threatening to destroy your house... right before your eyes.
Number #3 Queen - We Are The Champions
Have you ever been in a race and feeling like your a week short and about 3 miles back?
Where you can hear everyone cheering you on in the distance, but the finish line is just sooo far away. Have you ever felt like that?
Freddie's felt like that as well and he realized that sometimes a little celebration is in order to appreciate everything you've accomplished up to this point.
So even if you don't come in first, you keep trying and you finish what you started.
Number #4 Viva La Vida - Cold Play
"Viva La Vida" is an awesome song. This motivational track will easily pass for a cup of joe on those mornings when you're rushing out the door.
"I used to rule the world, seas would rise when I gave the word" - ColdPlay
Now most of us would be lucky if we could get the bathtub to fill without overflowing, but just imagine looking back on a life of success. A life of conquest and power.
A life that you can reflect on and smile. It's a little backwards thinking, but "Yeah, we dig it".
Number #5 Hustlin - Rick Ross
This one goes out to all the Hustlas, The Money Gettas".. The people focused on their money whether it's running a corporate office or moving a physical product.
You already know how uplifting and inspirational this song is. So go do what you do and make that Mo-Ney.
Number #6 "Live Your Life" - T.I Feat. Rhianna
You know when you've got the haters at your back and front trying to keep you from being all you can be?
That moment that you find out the people in your corner have become snakes waiting for you to fail?
Take a page from T.I's book and just "Live Your Life". Oh and.."Ay Ay Ay" \m/
Number #7 "Triumph" - Wu-Tang Clan (Wu Tang Forever)
If you've ever needed to become bullet-proof and walk through hell in gasoline boots..this is your theme song!
Wu-Tang's "Triumph" gets underneath the skin and basks you in it's Golden Arms. It's a wonderful embrace...True Motivation.
Number # 8 Alive - P.O.D
Sometimes in life, we're lucky enough to get a second chance or at least a pair of fresh eyes to view the world.
P.O.D's song "Alive" captures that moment when your riding on top of the sun, but you can still feel the heat of the rays beneath your feet.
Number #9 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
Not all motivation has some epiphany or moment of clarity attached to it. Sometimes you just need the energy to destroy some sheit..lol
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is the perfect song to give you that surge of adrenaline needed to push out the world's toxins and live without regret if only for a few minutes.
Number # 10 Stronger - Kanye West Feat. Daft Punk
You know how they say, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"?
Well, this is the song with those exact words. Kanye and Daft Punk got together and cranked out this high energy jam that's sure to get you back on your feet and back in the game. Of life that is;)
