My “Power Playlist”: 18 Songs to Get Confident!

Mar 11, 2014

You may not know this about me, but I always warm up before I go anywhere that I need to be show up confident and on my game. Whether I’m leading a workshop, giving a talk, meeting with a prospective client, or attending a networking event, I warm up first.

What do you think would happen if a runner showed up on race day without warming up?

She probably wouldn’t do her best, would she? Well, the same is true for business owners. If we don’t warm up before important business events, our presence won’t be as powerful as it could be, and we might even leave a poor impression.

Listening to uplifting songs to make you feel confident and unstoppable is an important and FUN part of any warm up routine. But don’t just listen to these songs, completely rock out to them in front of the mirror while you get ready! Not only will the lyrics put you into a confident mental state, but dancing and singing along with the music will get your body moving, your breath flowing, and your voice booming.

This kind of movement is important because if you’re anything like me, you probably feel nervous before you have to be “on.” When we become nervous our body stiffens and we hold our breath - two things that totally deplete presence. To have a Powerful Presence, you must have flow and movement in your body and voice. So as you can see, listening to uplifting songs isn’t just important for empowering your mindset, but singing and dancing to uplifting songs is important for empowering your physical and vocal presence too.

Below are the 18 songs on my “Power Playlist.” These are the exact songs I listen to when I need to feel confident and unstoppable. Warning - some of the songs have bad words, so if that kind of thing offends you, I recommend skipping the ones by Eminem and Back Eyed Peas. Enjoy!
