The Music Commands Us

Kid with Headphones

Finding inspiration and motivation is as easy as opening iTunes and finding your favorite song. Currently I’m listening to Good Life by Kanye West and T-pain, rap, I know.

Some people think rap is terrible but the key to inspiration is that it comes in all forms, some people listen to music for the sounds I listen for the words. Even though it seems like all they do is brag, when you repeat their words you subconsciously motivate and train your mind to think in the same manner. This is not to say that all that matters in life is success, far from it. The point is that if you want to be successful, you have to be in the correct mindset, success is not an accident.

This is not like brainwashing, it doesn’t change who you are, it will simply put you in a positive mood. When we work, we work for success, we don’t work for mediocrity. Why not listen to music that uplifts.

Successful – Drake ft Trey SongzDrake Young Money

I want the money,

Money and the cars,
Cars and the clothes,
The ****,
I suppose,

I just wanna be,
I just wanna be successful.

I just wanna be,
I just wanna be successful.

I just wanna be,
I just wanna be successful.

I’m Still Fly – Drake

I’m still fly (Yea)

I’m sky high

And I dare anybody to try and cut my wings (Uh)

I’m still pullin out the phantom

And these haters can’t stand him

***** I’m still doin’ my thing

I’m still fly I’m sky high

And I dare anybody to try and cut my wings

I’m still shuttin cities down everytime I come around

***** I’m still doin my thing (Here I go) I’m still..

Rap? Really?

Sue me I like it, when you listen to the right kinds of music it directly affects your mood, if you consider the lyrics displayed here you could see how it could keep someone focused on hustling. In your head all your doing is rationalizing, this hard work now will get me the money, the cars, the clothes. What ever you pursue, freedom, travel, its all written here. Feeling unmotivated, invest 10-15 minutes in the most motivational songs in your library. You will get your work done, and feel great about it. These rappers, singers, and entertainers are living their dream. They sing about it for us, ultimately we must approve their songs.

You can listen to anything; try to find songs that have a message you can believe in. These songs listed are obviously focused on the hustle, which is something that I can relate to. Find the ones that inspire you and work towards your dreams.
