Following YOUR Path - Motivational Lyrics
There are many things that motivate us to do more, to overcome, to help or to simply be better people.
One of the most powerful motivators, for me, is music.
Not just the chords, the pounding drums or a catchy rhythm - although that's a piece of it.
I'm talking about the lyrics that lay on top of the music.
The words that offer hope, encourage the listener take a chance, give direction, or inspire you to run one more mile.
I'm talking about the stories that unfold within a song that wake you up to possibility, and urge you to take action.
One of my favorites, and I have many, from years ago - that really made me think
about my life and where I was going - was Time by Pink Floyd. If this isn't enough to wake someone up, I'm not sure what is:
Ticking away the moments
That make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours
in an off-hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground
In your home town
Waiting for someone or something
To show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine
Staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long
And there is time to kill today
And then the one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun
Many people are simply waiting for someone or something to show them the way. In the mean time, opportunity, time and life is slipping away.
Don't let another day get behind you!!!! Take Action.
What lyrics have motivated you to do more or take a chance or simply helped you to cope with the ups and downs of this crazy game of life?? Share it here and inspire others!! Don't be shy!!!!!
