If you have ever felt like you are falling behind on your goals and yet can't seem to get the motivation to get back on track, using motivational songs may be the key. Songs have a great way to get you into a certain state of mind. This article will talk about how why music is so powerful when it comes to being able to motivate you, how to get the most out of motivation songs, and how they can help you take consistent action in order to achieve your goals. Once you are done reading this article, you should be able to understand the power of music and use it more effectively.
The reason why music is so powerful is because it has the ability to instantly get you into a certain state of mind. If you have ever listened to a song that made you feel a certain way, then you know what I'm talking about. The reason this happens is because when you listen to a song while feeling a certain way and do it enough times or feel the feeling intensely enough, that feeling and the song will link up in your mind. Because of this, once you hear the song again, that feeling that was linked to it will come back. Knowing this is powerful because you can deliberately link feelings of power and motivation to certain songs.
Linking these motivational songs to a feeling of action, a feeling where you want to do what is necessary to achieve your goals is the best way to get the most out of these types of songs. The first thing you need to do is to be able to get excited about your goals. Get yourself in that state of mind where you are ready to go out and take on the world. While you are feeling this intense feeling, turn on a motivation song that you want to link that feeling to. Keep the intense state of mind going for the duration of the song. Do this about a dozen times and the song should automatically trigger the feeling. This process is called anchoring by the way.
Now that you have linked up the song with the feeling of motivation, to strengthen this tool, every time you are feeling motivated for whatever reason, play the song or songs you have chosen. When you are feeling demotivated to take action, use the motivational songs to pump you up. The more you do this and the more intensely you do it, the more effective it will be in getting you to take consistent action.
When it comes to motivation, everyone is motivated a bit differently. Not all people will be moved by the same song. So find songs that have meaning for you and use them to take the actions necessary long enough to accomplish your goals.
