Kid Cudi to the rescue!
I've always been a Kid Cudi fan because of his soothing rhythmic style of music. There's something about his music that I find soothing and beneficial. Recently, I heard his newest album Satellite Flight and immediately fell in love with it. The album is different then most Cudi albums because it's more instrumental based, rather than lyrical. For me, this fits my needs because it's hard to focus on anything when I constantly sing along. It's hard for me to write and clearly think, so listening to instrumentals works perfect! The tracks in his album give me the extra kick I need to get the 'creative juices' flowing. I love creating (if you weren't aware!) Maybe that's why I love I have a lot of slow-pace or instrumental music on my iPhone...hmm. Since i now have an obsession of of being aware of my silent thoughts, i constantly find myself wanting to think positive and his music starts my engines. I find it very useful to be able to manipulate my thoughts because what I think, happens in my life. No long do "I wish" things to happen (which is a negative thought). Instead, I "think" them and believe them to be happening with the strongest will my body can produce. Doing this has led to those thoughts appearing in my life!
This is what works for me. I suggest you find a similar outlet that will get you motivated, because we're all different. The combination of this type of music and reading personal-development books has helped me tremendously. In school, I always procrastinated with my studies, so when it came tim e to start an assignment (the day before), I always put on either classical music, instrumentals, or slow-paced music with minimal lyrics. This allowed to focus and grind out whatever assignment I was left to do. I don't recommend this type of behavior because it leads to bad habits and stress, but I love performing under pressure. Thanks again for the external motivation Kid Cudi!
