Fight songs are popular amongst sports fans as a way of cheering on, and “pumping up” their team, especially when the team is losing. Earlier this year Rachel Platten released, the very popular “Fight Song”, that had me thinking, why not a personal fight song to help you stay working toward the goals that you set for yourself at the beginning of the semester?
- Pick one song that raises your energy level and play it when you need a boost.
- Select a song a week or even your monthly fight song.
- Create a playlist of several songs that put you in an inspired state of mind, similar to playlists that people use to keep motivated when exercising.
Whatever works for you…
Turn on your music to keep you in a state of mind that helps you fight for your goals when your energy is low, when you forget why you are even in school, when things can feel so overwhelming.
Right now, my fight song is written and performed by the amazing Ellie King, America’s Sweetheart.
Fight for your goals!
I would love to hear what you have selected as your fight songs. Please comment on this blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
