Favorite songs are powerful.
They can pull out emotions that we didn’t even know existed.

They lift us. Drive us forward.
And embody the potential take us to the place of success.
(Faster and easier than we could have imagined)

Especially songs of hope.

If you’re short on strength today,
maybe listening to music and lyrics is in order.

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise from the ashes
and make a new beginning

We can’t deny it:
When lyrics of hope intertwine, knit, and meld with the music,
and we open ourselves to the possibilities,
something magical happens.

That moment when a doorway we didn’t know existed opens,
and we’re able to walk through.

If you’ve a looming project ahead,
maybe listening to music and lyrics is in order.

Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you’re stronger, stronger than you know

Don’t you give up now; the sun will soon be shining
You’ve gotta fix the clouds to find the silver lining

What kind of lyrics are you listening to, today?
Do they take you to a better place?

Hope is borne across lyrical winds, and we rise on their updraft.

If you’ve lost the passion, the drive, the force behind you,
maybe listening to music and lyrics is for today.

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end, even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered, broken hearts become brand new

That’s what faith can do.

You see, often times,
our lyrical doorways stay shut and fullness stays away,
until the music and lyrics access the soul.

If you’re leading  — in any capacity —
What’s creating your inner energy?
Maybe listening to music and lyrics can be a part of it.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason for someone not to try.

Everybody’s scared to death
when they decide to take that step out on the water,
but it will be all right.

Music + lyrics = potential power.
But it’s a power that won’t come to you. You have to go to it.
Maybe listening to music and lyrics is the right thing to do.

Life is so much more than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way, when you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end, even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen, silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new

That’s what faith can do.

More times than we know,
faith resides in the arts.

To rise higher, it’s imperative to step away just for a moment and
immerse yourself.
(It’s a good bet that, with the right music and lyrics,
you’ll emerge changed.)

And choose carefully.
Listen to the good ones.
The powerful ones.
The positive ones.
(Not the feeling-bad, feeling-sorry, oh-woe ones
taking you farther from your goals.)

Overcome the odds when you don’t have a chance.
When the world says you can’t,
It’ll tell you that  you can.

Even if you fall sometimes, 
You will have the strength to rise.

Music and lyrics aren’t just a spark.
They’re access to strength.
