'You have to be willing to work hard to get it'

So this is probably the most un-festive song to come out this month but, aside from the fact that I do love a good bit of edm (ta, Korea), and that Avicii pretty much provided my soundtrack to the first half of this year, I really like the message.

"When I was 16 my father said that you can do anything you want with your life, you just have to be willing to work hard to get it."

I'm lucky enough to have parents that are incredibly supportive, although I haven't always seen it, they've helped me get where I am today, and help pick me up when I feel like I can't. They encourage me to fight for what I believe in, and have taught me that to get anything worth having, you have to work hard.

Which, in today's day and age, is something that I think is being forgotten.

Not to say that I don't think people work hard, because I do, I just think people have misplaced the idea that success requires a foundation being laid, and that it doesn't just happen overnight. Which isn't a bad thing either - it's motivating.

when thunder clouds start pouring down
light a fire they can't put out
carve your name into those shining stars
he said: 'go venture far beyond these shores
don't forsake this life of yours
i'll guide you home no matter where you are"

What songs have been inspiring/motivating you recently? Do you like avicii's tracks?

  1. Such an inspiring post, I loved reading this! The message in that song is really sentimental and I'm also a huge believer that hard work pays off - 'the harder you work, the luckier you get', for example. I can't think of any inspiring songs off the top of my head but I definitely have some, brain fog!

    1. Thank you! It's a really great pick-me-up track, I've been listening to it on repeat while I finish my uni essay. Good things are worth effort.
      I love that quote! It's one of my favourites, I believe luck is mostly earned, the foundations you lay in the beginning will be worth it in the end.

      I'm glad you enjoyed it!
