Music That Motivates You

I have written about this before, but music is a core piece in my life. I live for all types of music-there is something very powerful in the emotions a song can make me feel. From sad, happy, excited and motivated, different songs can inspire or remind me of a memory of years past. 

It's funny how a song's lyrics can mean something different for everyone. Sometimes depending on what's going on in our lives a song can mean one thing and a few months later the same some can elicit different interpretations or feelings depending on what's happening in our lives. I can hear a song from Hootie and the Blowfish (remember them?!?!?!) and I am instantly back in college..I totally just dated myself! Or a song that instantly brings me back to the day I got laid off from my corporate job and helped ease my pain when I felt so low. 

In one of my current playlists on my iPhone, there is a song that comes on that makes me excited and motivated to tackle whatever is on my agenda that day. It's called Unstoppable by The Score. The chorus goes like this: 

We can be heroes everywhere we go
We can have all that we ever want
Swinging like Ali, knocking out bodies
Standing on top like a champion
Keep your silver, give me that gold
You'll remember when I say
We can be heroes everywhere we go
Keeping us down is impossible
'Cause we're unstoppable

(check out remix here:

Each time I hear the this song and the chorus, internally (and to be honest sometimes out loud in my car) I say 'I AM unstoppable'. This is a song I put on before I walk in to speak to a group of women leaders. A song I blast from my radio before I meet with a potential client. A song I sing to myself silently as I struggle during my day. All to remind me that I am unstoppable. I can achieve the goals I have set for myself.  It my motivational song of 2018. I have a lot of goals this year, in my career and personal life, and need any extra help I can get! 

Is there a song that is currently your go-to song to inspire, motivate or excite you?  Let me know- I can always use new songs to inspire me!
