5 Songs To Keep You Supercharged & Focused On Your Journey Towards Your Dreams

motivational music for women

“One good thing about music, is when it hits you, you feel no pain.” – Bob Marley

 

Music is truly food for the soul. Science Studies have shown that music benefits our physical and mental health in numerous ways. It can ease pain, soothe the spirit, elevate one’s mood, reduce stress and anxiety, reduce symptoms of depression, and improve cognitive performance and so much more.

 

Music is uplifting and can also be used to help us stay focused and keep us inspired and motivated on our journeys towards our dreams

 

Motivational music to increase your productivity and drive

1. Eye of the Tiger

If you haven’t heard this wonderful song by the American rock band Survivor, you have got to search for it on Youtube and listen to it NOW! Eye of the Tiger toped music charts worldwide in the early 80s and was the very popular theme song for the movie; Rocky III.

I love everything about this song, from its upbeat tempo, strong hook and how energized and alive it always makes me feel whenever I listen to it. It is definitely the kind of song you want to have on your playlist and need to listen to whenever you want to get into beast mode and motivate yourself to do the impossible or push past obstacles and limiting beliefs.

This song always gets me thinking about the importance of focus during any undertaking. If you have ever watched an animal show, I am certain you have noticed how intensely a tiger gazes upon its prey after identifying it and the fact that it doesn’t lose sight of it for even a second. It quietly lurks in the shadows and intently follows its prey’s every move as it awaits the right moment for capture.

And so it should be when it comes to our goals and dreams; we need to always be extremely solid in our intentions, be committed to taking the necessary actions required to bringing them to pass and never lose sight of them but instead continue to keep our eyes on the prize until we have achieved the desired outcome.

 

2. Girl on Fire

American singer-song writer; Alicia Keys really did it with this song. Her powerful vocal chords really shine through in this song, beautifully showcasing the lyrics and making them seem more pronounced in some sense. I can never listen to this song on low volume as it’s just the kind of song that needs to be played on full blast to allow the lyrics to permeate your soul and come alive within you.

 

Ohhhh oh oh oh oh

She got both feet on the ground

And she’s burning it down

Ohhhh oh oh oh oh

She got her head in the clouds

And she’s not backing down

 

Although this song was inspired by the birth of her son, Egypt and marriage to husband, Swiss Beat, I assign a totally different meaning to it. This song inspires me in that it makes me feel unstoppable and like I can conquer the world and do absolutely anything I put my mind to. It energizes me, fuels my drive and determination and makes me think of my goals and dreams as possible even when they at times appear impossible. I always think about this song every time I feel like I am on a roll and making big strides in my goals.

 

 3. When you believe

This beautiful and very inspirational collaboration between American sensations, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey will have you believing in the possibility of your dreams and help keep your hope alive. This song was originally recorded for the animated feature movie; The Prince of Egypt and was awarded the Academy Award for Best Original song in 1999.

 

This is a song you need to listen to anytime you feel discouraged and like your dreams are out of your reach or never ever going to come to pass. This song will renew your faith like no other, have you believing that the future holds something wonderful in store for you and help you re-commit to your dreams if not cry like a baby.

 

Who knows what miracles

You can achieve

When you believe somehow you will

You will when you believe

 

The lyrics to When you believe really reinforce the fact the role our mindset plays in influencing and determining our success. Belief is integral in making anything happen and it can be said enough; change your mindset, change your life!

 

4. Can’t Take That Away

This Mariah Carey song was inspired by all the kids who teased her and made her feel like she wasn’t good enough during her Junior High School days. This is a great song that will help keep you encouraged and allow you to keep your head up anytime you encounter a hater. If you haven’t encountered one already on your journey towards your goals and dreams; rest assured that you will. No matter whom you are or what you do, trust the fact that not everyone will applaud your efforts, support your dreams or celebrate your successes.

People are often threatened by those around them who appear to be different from them, have the things they desire or cause them to reflect on their own lives. So, rather than face their own insecurities and inadequacies, they take satisfaction in bringing others down a notch, belittling them, downplaying their successes or pointing out their shortcomings and flaws in an effort to elevate themselves and feel better about who they are.

This song will remind you that your haters aren’t worth your attention and that no matter what they do or say, they can’t change who you are, take away your dreams or stand in the way of living out your destiny.

 

 

They can say anything they want to say

Try to bring me down

But I will not allow anyone to succeed

Hanging clouds over me

 

And they can try hard to make me feel

That I don’t matter at all

But I refuse to falter in what I believe

Or lose faith in my dreams

 

Today, make a vow to yourself to ignore all the naysayers and people who try to bring you down, tell you that you will never amount to anything, dissuade you from following your dreams, and try to project their negative and limiting beliefs on you. Silence them by staying true to yourself and your dreams and proving them wrong in the end.

 

5. I believe I can fly

 

I definitely saved the best for last with R. Kelly’s most successful single ever. The lyrics to this song speak for themselves and will transport your mind to an indescribable place and really have you believing that you can defy gravity and fly, score any mountain and do the impossible. The lyrics to I believe I can fly are so powerful and outstanding; they fill me up with so much hope and reinforce the important role belief plays when it comes to accomplishing anything.

 

This song will empower you, lift you up and encourage you when you experience moments of sadness, self-doubt or like the world is closing in on you and no one understands. It will also remind you that it will all be well someday and that you can transcend anything and everything no matter the circumstances or situation if you will proactively take responsibly for your life and use the power within you to create the life you envision for yourself.

 

 

 

I believe I can fly

I believe I can touch the sky

I think about it every night and day

Spread my wings and fly away

I believe I can soar

I see me running through that open door

I believe I can fly

I believe I can fly

I believe I can fly

 

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

If I can see it, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it
