Ten Inspirational Songs to Really Kick Start Your Career

Sometimes we need an extra push to keep us motivated and positive. Music is said to be a universal language, which we can all connect to. It can wake us up from our slumber and encourage us to take charge of our lives.


Here are ten inspirational songs to do just that:

Titanium, David Guetta feat. Sia

I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose

Fire away, fire away,

Ricochet, you take your aim

Fire away, fire away

You shoot me down but I won’t fall

I am titanium

Not only is this song catchy but also the words ring true. The lyrics talk of feeling invincible and tackling challenges with a fearless mentality. No matter the hardship, there is nothing to lose by trying. The knockbacks in life will only serve to make you stronger.


Formation, Beyoncé

I see it, I want it, I stunt, yellow-bone it

I dream it, I work hard, I grind ‘til I own it.

Beyoncé is the epitome of a daring businesswoman, unafraid to reach for the stars. Formation preaches the need to dream it, believe it and achieve it. Everything is within our reach if we put in the work to get where we want to be.


Lose Yourself, Eminem

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

Eminem’s hard-hitting lyrics are all you need to get you pumped for a good, productive day at work. He highlights the importance of seizing the day and treating every opportunity as the chance to excel. Hold onto your ambitions and never let them go until you finally achieve them. Also don’t forget to ‘lose yourself’ and enjoy the moment!


Survivor, Destiny’s Child

I’m a survivor

I’m gonna make it

I will survive

Keep on survivin’

When you’ve faced a few rejections the key is to dust yourself off and try again until you accomplish your goals. Never giving up is an important part of success and the only way to stay strong, according to Destiny’s child, is to believe that you’re going to make it. Keep on survivin’.


Girl On Fire, Alicia Keys

We got our feet on the ground

And we’re burning it down

A girl who is inspired to dream big despite criticism is the best example that we can follow. Even if people or situations may let you down, you are stronger and you can overcome them. Being alone is not a disadvantage; at times it can be empowering. Learning to believe in yourself makes you a strong force to be reckoned with.


Don’t Stop Believing, Journey

Don’t Stop Believin’

Hold on to the feelin’
This song includes examples of people struggling in life but working hard to make their lives better. The ever-so-catchy chorus reiterates this and expresses the need to keep the fire in your belly and to remember that one day you’ll make it to the top.


Harder, Better, Faster, Daft Punk

Work it harder, make it better

Do it faster, makes us stronger

As humans, we are constantly striving for something more, trying to improve our situation and ourselves. Daft Punk’s classic up-beat tune reinforces the need to look forward into the future and to work hard at becoming the strongest versions of ourselves that we can be. The only people who can improve our lot are ourselves, so we need to get up and act now.


Roar, Katy Perry

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar!

We are all champions and deep inside of us we have a fighting spirit. Katy Perry’s track teaches us to embrace this inner persona and to tackle the world without any worry. Let’s face our demons and scare them away with our own powerful roar.


Let It Go, Irina Menzel

It’s time to see what I can do,
to test the limits and break through.
No right, no wrong, no rules for me.
I’m free!

When you rid yourself of other peoples’ expectations and dreams, you’ll set yourself free. There is something really empowering about breaking yourself from the chains of fears, pressure and unconstructive criticism. Menzel sings about standing strong and tall in the eye of the storm, alone and independent. Let go of all of your worries. All of them.


Stronger, Kelly Clarkson

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

Stand a little taller
This firecracker of a song is pretty self-explanatory: the obstacles that you may face in life provide you with important tools for confronting the future. Don’t be scared of previous setbacks; embrace them.


Music is ‘food for the soul’. Use inspirational songs to dream. Use inspirational songs to inspire. Use inspirational songs to achieve: The Future Is Yours!
