Lose Yourself

Lose Yourself is a very motivating and inspirational song. The lyrics teach us to live in the moment and rise to the occasion when our opportunity arises. The verse that makes this song so symbolic says:

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime

After listening to this song you feel extremely motivated and ready to take on any challenge. You feel a personal connection with the lyrics. This song is great for a little inspiration and is a great song to listen to.


‘Till I Collapse

‘Till I Collapse carries yet another motivating message. The song teaches us to keep going no matter how tough the going gets. The most known lyrics say:

‘Cause sometimes you just feel tired, you feel weak

And when you feel weak you feel like you want to just give up

But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength

And just pull that **** out of you and get that motivation to not give up

And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you want to just fall flat on your face and collapse

This song teaches us to not give up and find strength no matter how bad you want to give up. 

The motivation and inspiration behind these songs have made them very iconic. You can relate to every verse and word in the songs. The personal connection you feel to the songs is amazing. These songs are great to listen to when in need of some motivation and inspiration.
