Motivational Songs

Motivational quotes and songs are for the times when you feel down and as active as a flat tire, unable to go on with whatever you are doing or supposed to be doing. You find it difficult to apply even 10% of you, spiritually, mentally and physically, to the task which may be as hard as lying in a bed comfortably and without fretting. Mostly, you yourself can lead to this state by taking in and reacting to events that are happening around you in the way you habitually do. Or, it may be something, out of character, you have done that has surprised and driven you to this track. How you feel, down this path, depends on what makes you throb and what you value more. This insufferable feeling can manifest in different forms and expressions from one individual to the another.

Well, to be honest and hammer the nail on the head, “What do you do to escape out of this mousetrap?” You must be doing something about this feeling, well, I mean other than breast beating, aren’t you?

Songs to Lift Your Mood
It is a time to lead our cottony ball of mind to another groove or course and spin a new thread of thought that, if followed, can guide us out of this doldrums of an inactivity. But, where do you look for this inspiring thought or how it knows that you are in need and looking for it.

The Rule of Thumb says that, if you cannot create something on your own, when you need it most urgently, then buy or borrow it. This reasoning leads into taking someone’s advice or reading a motivational book or listening to songs. The first option may make you travel and physical efforts; the second option will definitely demand your conscious and prolonged involvement which you may not be feeling up to. The last option, that of listening to popular motivational songs is an entertaining way of getting out of the blue zone, and it doesn’t demand too much from you. You can get involve with a song, which may belong to classical music or rock music or blues music, after playing it, whenever you feel like or be as content as a hibernating bear. The moment of your involvement may be triggered by a word or a phrase and by the beat of the music or by the combination of all these. Everyone has a song that takes his mind away from the day-to-day problems, stress, which inspires and energizes him to overcome the initial inertia of starting a new thing: a thought or an activity. Well, which song do you favor most to prod you in such a situation?

Songs for Work
This day comes in everyone’s life and the moment may jump you while you may be looking at your telly without taking it in or when one gets up to prepare for the day and set out for the work. Feeling as enthusiastic and active as a deflated balloon, you try to regroup your resources and calls on every ounce of mental energy and makes you go through some of the daily cores. However, you know in your heart of heart that things are not working at all and nothing is right, as it should be or could be. Suddenly, when you have overtaken a corner of your mind, it dawns on you that your behavior is that of an aimless driftwood, bobbing in the purposeful current of promises, needs and wants, rights and responsibilities and achievements and goals.
