Inspirational Music 2014 – Top 20 Upbeat Songs to Keep You Motivated!

Regardless of how happy and upbeat we try to be, there are things in life that can get us down. A bad day or some bad news… We can go from on-top of the world to feeling stuck and helpless. One of the best ways to change how you feel is to listen to music that is likely to inspire and motivate you. You may not be in the right mood, but do it. Listen to a few tracks, and you might find you’re asking yourself… ‘Hang on a second, why am I suddenly feeling MUCH better?’.  It may just give you the BOOST you need!

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. – Plato
