Looking for an early morning boost? Trying to shake off the Monday blues? Add these soul-loving songs to your playlist and get your spirit aroused before you set out for that next meeting, big interview or business trip.
You need confidence in everything you do in life. There is no particular pill that can substitute for it. You just must have it at the back of your mind and be optimistic that you can kick ass and break your way through into success.
However, there are days when you might trip, fall and even fail; you may feel like beating yourself up for something not properly done. But you shouldn’t allow the blue days to take over the good days; shake it off and come back lively.
One of the best ways to bounce back strong is to grab your headphones, turn on your sound system of choice and let the music play. And, according to James Brown, “Get up off that thing, and dance until you feel better.”
Not sure what to play? Below is a careful selection of 14 soul-lifting, confidence-boosting songs you can add to your library to lift you up whenever you are down.
Let’s turn that frown upside down and crank the music up.
One of my favorite songs. Are you set? Put on your armor and let’s see how strong you are. You are unstoppable and invincible. You are a winner in every single game you play. What a powerful person you are!
Your road to success is different from anyone else’s. It’s your own and you do your own thing. Focus on your goals, others may hate and complain. You got this.
You aren’t afraid to take a stand. Take this path, through the storm, whatever the weather, cold or warm. You are not alone. No more drama. Break out of the closet.
Incomparable you are. Never compare yourself with others who will all get sliced and diced. Competition’s paying the price. You’d rock this land and take this itty bitty world by storm. And you are just getting warm.
Yeezy knows best in this case. It’s your destiny to be harder, better, faster, stronger.
Work it…Make it…Do it…
Be agile, come out brave and feel your way through the darkness. “You can’t tell where the journey ends, but you know where to start”. It starts with the first big step, the hardest yet crucial.
Whatsoever you do, make sure you don’t cloud your own vision; instead, materialize the feeling. Be confident and carry on. Remember, you rule the world. Well, your own world, at least, but it’s a start.
Everyday people seem to do everyday things, but you aren’t one of them. You’re better than they are. You’re amazing. You have the power. You can do anything. You are a hero.
Just like what you see when you look at yourself as you walk past the mirror. Moping around? No way. There’s no time for that. No time for negative vibes either, because you’re winning. So feel free right now and do what you wanna do. That’s right. You’re fine, just fine.
A playlist of soul-lifting songs is incomplete without a cheesy ’80s rock anthem. I have added it for you. This iconic hit song by Journey will remind you not to give up when you’re living in a lonely world. Roll the dice, just one more time. But please remember not to feather your mullet.
Celebrate and dance so freely. Don’t wait until it gets late. Then play it again. Yes, one more time. And if you are not motivated to dance, just nod your head to this seemingly peppy song.
So what if there’s no easy way out? You’ll stand your ground and you won’t back down. They can stand you up at the gates of hell, but you won’t, well, you know the rest.
There’s nothing wrong with being confident. Absolutely nothing! So don’t hold your freak back. Demi Lovato didn’t, and judging from the loud, proud and confident pop star’s meteoric rise to stardom, it’s working out just fine for her.
Open your eyes and look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living? You know where you’re going and you know where you came from. So walk with confidence in the direction of your dreams. Another hit song by Bob Marley is “Three Little Birds,” which says don’t worry, every little thing’s gonna be alright.
Now that you have some musical ammunition, those dull days won’t stand a chance. Feel free to add to the list, any other confidence-booster you might feel is appropriate. The music world is vast and there are tons of tunes just waiting to be played. After all, life is a song and you should sing it. Always.
