Seven  confidence boosting songs

Even though at your core you have confidence, you’ll have moments when your confidence barometer is low. When this happens, a confidence boosting song is just what the doctor orders.

Here are seven of the many confident boosting songs I enjoy.  Please add yours.

1.  Heather Small – Proud

I first heard this song on the Big Loser. It soon became a fave of mine. I was moved by her strong melodious voice and inspiring lyrics. It picks me up every time.

Excerpt:

Still so many answers I don’t know
Realize that to question is how we grow
So I step out of the ordinary
I can feel my soul ascending
I am on my way
Can’t stop me now
And you can do the same

2.  Gloria Gaynor – I will survive

Is there anyone out there who has not heard this song?  This is a timeless classic – from  feelings of despair to rock solid confidence.

Excerpt:

I used to cry
Now I hold my head up high
and you see me
somebody new
I’m not that chained up little person
still in love with you

3 . Phil Collins – I don’t care anymore

As Steve Jobs said “Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinion drown out your inner voice.”  This will keep your confidence high.

Excerpt:

Well, I don’t care now what you say
‘Cos ev’ry day I’m feeling fine with myself
And I don’t care now what you say
Hey I’ll do alright by myself

3.  Christina Aguilera – Beautiful

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and you are your beholder. When you have confidence,  external validation is not important.

Excerpt:

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

4.  Nina Simone – Feeling Good

For those who appreciate Jazz – confidence makes you feel good.

Excerpt:

Birds flyin’ high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by you know how I feel
Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me
yeah, its a new dawn its a new day its a new life for me ooooooooh
AND I’M FEELING GOOD

6.  Jimmy Cliff – You can get it if you really want

Old School Reggae, still relevant today.  Unstoppable confidence moves you to break down walls, stay motivated and focused to get what you want.

Excerpt:

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try, you’ll succeed at last

7.  Tim McGraw – Live like you were dying

Thanks to our Grundig radio, I grew up appreciating Country Music. A little bit of country that inspires you to re-frame your negative experiences and stay confident. There’s some similarity between this song and the post  I did: are you living before you die

Excerpt:

And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I’d been denying
and he said some day I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying

YouTube Video
