Good Afternoon all, today’s piece is going to be very short. Had a very nice stay at Stay at One World Hotel, just checked out, and had a great time listening to brialliant jazz at No Black Tie last night and getting to know new people, slept at about 5am and got up at 10 for breakfasthome third favourite thing about staying at hotels. Now I’m at the Signature Starbucks in One Utama, spent the first hour here in quiet, having my holy hour and then another 30 minutes spent dreaming about life and my future; where I want it to go and all that jazz. Visualising my dreams in my head ( 30 minutes daily, alone with music that gets you dreaming or in quiet) has been helping me stay driven and helps me Keep Moving Forward.

On that note of moving forward and keeping driven, here are 6 songs that I listen to that helps me get motivated and pumped when I need a boost or in any general circumstance. These songs may not appeal to you as they do to me, I take what I want from them and ignore the rest.

1. Eminem‘s Till I collapse.
The beginning of this song speaks volumes to me, I till get goose bumps when I listen to it, and I look back and see how far I’ve come and how much further I can still go. From thinking that I would never be able to not feel fatigued to a current state of daily exercise and energy. I’m so damn proud of my progress, and till the day I collapse I ain’t going to stop.

‘Cause sometimes you just feel tired,
Feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up.
But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
And just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up
And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse.

2. Eminem’s Lose Yourself.
Not many people like Eminem, but he has some brilliant songs above perseverance and fighting and all that. This was one of the first Eminem songs that I started listening to that made me realise how profound some of his lyrics are. This song reminds me that in life we’ve gotta take the chances and opportunities that pass us by. No one ever said life was going to be easy, but that doesn’t mean you should give up and not try, that you shouldn’t lose yourself in the music and go be that which you really want.

3. T.I. & Mary J Blige – Remember Me
Listening to this song reminds me of the fad that I want to leave a lasting legacy, who and what I want to be remembered as when I leave this world, that I want to make an impact. That I want to Make A Dent in the Universe as Steve Jobs put it.

4. T.I. & Rihanna’s Live Your Life
The title already speaks volumes and the chorus just reminds me to keep at my dreams, to keep being ambitious and that I should let the “Haters” get to me (not to be confused with constructive critiscm).

5. RDB & Ludacris‘s Shera Di Khom from Speedy Singhs.
Why?

Yeah we were always told growing up
We have to strive to be the best
Always strive to success and 2nd place is not an option
That’s what we were told
So no matter what came up in my life, I got through it
That was my motivation
Now nothing can stop us
We will never lose, never fear, overcome all and persevere
Be the best and we down to show it any place anything, we will overthrow it
We will never lose, never fear, overcome all and persevere
Be the best and we down to show it
– RDB

These lyrics always pick me up when I need a kick in the ass.

And:

At the top and I’ll never come down
Always stay focused super star bound
Always was the dopest, never got weak
Head to the sky but my ear to the street
Foot on the gas, hands on the wheel
Get on my lap coz I’m going for the kill
Drink for the nerves, smoke for the stress
But death to the haters and to hell with the rest
I don’t pay my dues, make my moves
Blow a hundred thousand, walk a day in my shoes
Long time coming, long time gone
10 years been but I’m 10 men strong
Never gave up, I just won’t lose
So many hits but I just won’t bruise
Rappers just dying n I put them out the misery
Its Ludacris and I came to make history
– Ludacris

6. Fort Minor‘s Remember the Name

This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name!

I hope these songs help you the way they help me when I need a physical or mental pick me up.

Be sure not to overdose on them as they may lose their effectiveness, but don’t worry I’ll put a new list of 6 songs when that happens, or you could request a new 6 with a comment whenever).
