A Spotify Playlist For Inspiring Your New Goals

Sometimes, we are in one of those spirits that make us believe everything is possible. We are motivated and inspired to follow every single one of our dreams, and we feel like there’s no stopping us. Music can be a powerful tool for inspiration as well. So, here is a Spotify playlist for all these moments when you just need a small push.

1. Truth Hurts by Lizzo

This song convinces you that you are a bad bitch after all (if you had any doubts before)! Blast this one loudly and dance like nobody’s watching. Bonus point if you invite your friends for a slumber party and get all of your energy out with them.

“I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m a 100% that bitch!”

2. Are You Ready (On Your Own) by Distant Cousins

Sometimes we need a reminder that we can do everything we want on our own. Obviously, it’s completely alright to ask for help, but it’s important to know that we are capable of everything. And we can reach our goals using our own strength.

“I’m ready to begin.”

3. Fight Song by Rachel Platten

Rachel Platten’s hit speaks for itself – it’s a fight song. Whenever you feel as if the whole world is against you, remember that you’re stronger than you think. Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses.

“This is my fight song, take back my life song.”

4. Speak Out Now by Oh Land

It’s always important to speak our minds. No one will ever know the real you or know what you what unless you do. This song reminds us of that in a playful and happy beat.

“We’re not gonna wait here, not gonna get left out.”

5. Try by P!nk

Sometimes, life might feel overwhelming. We feel like we keep trying day and night and yet we never get anything out of it. However, trying is the single best thing we can do. Because if we never try, we will never know. So, follow your passions and dreams – do whatever makes you happy.

“Just because it burns doesn’t mean you’re gonna die.”

6. Shake It Off by Taylor Swift

In this single, Taylor Swift shakes off all the rumors people spread about her. She doesn’t care what people say about her since it’s her life. And that’s a message we should all take from it.

“And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.”

7. Rise Up by Imagine Dragons

Rise Up is about doing the best we can and sticking with it. We have to reach for our dreams; no one will ever hand them to us. Hence, we have to aspire to be the best versions of ourselves and try.

“I would always open up the door, always looking up at higher floors, want to see it all give me more.”

8. I Lived by OneRepublic

This must be one of the most inspiring songs by OneRepublic. It describes all these moments when we truly lived. There are many people who simply survive their lives, and not live them. We should all aspire to make this song our anthem!

“The only way you can know, you gave it all you had.”

9. Love Myself by Hailee Steinfeld

This female anthem simply reminds us to love ourselves. So, it deserves a spot on this playlist. We all have self-confidence issues from time to time. However, we can never forget that true beauty lies within.

“Gonna love myself, no, I don’t need anybody else.”

10. Go Big Or Go Home by American Authors

Go Big Or Go Home speaks through its title. Once you want to accomplish something in life, you have to give your full commitment and attention to it. You can’t leave it half-done and expect any results. You have to go big!

“I’m thinking life’s too short it’s passing by. So if I’m gonna go at all – go big or go home!”

11. We Are Young (feat. Janelle Monáe) by fun.

In this banger, fun. sings about being young for just one night. And for that night, we get to do whatever we want. So, go out there and experience life – that’s what we have our youth for.

“We are young. So let’s set the world on fire, we can burn brighter than the sun.”

12. It’s My Life by Bon Jovi

A motivational playlist cannot exist without this classic. If you’re a Millennial or older then you’ve heard this song at least a thousand times. It’s an anthem for living your life the way you want to.

“It’s my life, it’s now or never.”

13. Waiting for the End by Linkin Park

Oftentimes, things end and we can’t help it. However, new beginnings are the best parts of starting new adventures. You can steer your life in the direction you truly desire. Because you can always give yourself a second chance.

“The hardest part of ending is starting again.”

14. The Fighter (feat. Ryan Tedder) by Gym Class Heroes

This song motivates us all to achieve our dreams. It will take hard work and determination, but if you truly want something, you have to work for it. Remember that nothing that comes easily is worth the effort.

“Give ’em hell, turn their heads, gonna live life till we’re dead.”
