One of the most powerful ways to get motivated is by using motivational music. The reason music has such great power is because it has the ability to instantly snap you into a state of physical and mental power. Think about the last time you heard a song that just made you want to do stuff. Or how about a song that made you think of a specific time in your life? I'm sure you can come up with several experiences like this. This is the power of music.
I hate doing chores. It's just something I'd much rather have something else do but since that's not always an option, or ever an option, I normally get myself to do it by turning up some music that motivates me. It works because certain songs can put you in a certain state of mind. If you think about it, most things that you don't enjoy doing, if you were in the right mood, you can easily do it without having to complain about it couldn't you?
If you are a student and hate doing homework in general, think about one instance where you actually didn't mind doing homework and perhaps even enjoyed doing it. Now think of a time when this happened to you even though it was homework for a class you didn't like. The reason why you didn't mind doing the work that time where as most of the others times you completely despised it is because you were in a different mindset.
When it comes down to it, motivation is really just the way you feel about doing something. If you have an exciting day, you could probably easily wake up at 6am where on most days you couldn't get up before 9am. Again, this comes down to mindset and the particular mood that you are in. Since music has the ability to quickly change your mood and mindset, it is an excellent tool to use to help you get into the right mode to do the things you need to do in order to accomplish your goals.
Everyone has their own taste in music. It's nearly impossible to come up with just a list of 10 songs that everyone would agree that it motivates them. Since this is the case, when you come across songs that inspire you to take action, add it to your collection of motivational music and use it whenever you need an extra boost to get you to do the things you need to do.
