10 Encouraging songs Through Failure

To be honest, I have struggled with many insecurities. This has become the norm but I learn to figure my way through. Still, there are times when nothing seems to help. I lose courage, I lose motivation, I lose faith but now and then, I use music to remind myself why I am still here; why things will get better; why it doesn’t matter if you fail over and over again, as long as you keep getting up.

I want to share these songs with someone who may be having a tough day. Keep trying, never give up!

1. J. Cole – Love Yourz

“For what’s money without happiness?
Or hard times without the people you love
Though I’m not sure what’s ’bout to happen next
I asked for strength from the Lord up above
Cause I’ve been strong so far
But I can feel my grip loosening
Quick, do something before you lose it for good
Get it back and use it for good…”

2. Starting Over (Clean) Macklemore and Ben Bridwell

“If I can be an example of getting sober
Then I can be an example of starting over
If I can be an example of getting sober
Then I can be an example of starting over”

3. “Hall of Fame” by The Script, featuring Will.i.am

“You can go the distance
You can run the mile
You can walk straight through hell with a smile.”

4. Eminem – Lose Yourself

“You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go…”

5. “Rise Up”–Andra Day

“You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains…”

6. Jason Mraz – I Won’t Give Up

“I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools…”

7. Beyonce – Listen

“Oh, the time has come for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own, all ’cause you won’t listen…”

8. Beyonce – Freedom

“Freedom! Freedom! Where are you?
Cause I need freedom too!
I break chains all by myself
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Hey! I’ma keep running
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves…”

9. James Blunt – Carry You Home

“As strong as you were, tender you go
I’m watching you breathing for the last time
A song for your heart, but when it is quiet
I know what it means and I’ll carry you home
I’ll carry you home…”

10. OneRepublic – Good Life

“When you’re happy like a fool
Let it take you over
When everything is out
You gotta take it in…”
