Inspiration Comes in Many Ways

Have you ever had a song pop into your head for no apparent reason? Sometimes you can blame it on the music playing at the grocery store or at the mall, sometimes a song will be triggered because someone says something that reminds you of a song. I’m not sure how “Lose Yourself” by Eminem came to mind, but it did.

I frequently find inspiration in music and this song is one of many that get’s me pumped up and excited. I also realized that this song has some great inspirational words that fit the LifeMap thought process. All the lyrics are available at AZlyrics.com, below are the lyrics I’m focusing on.

EMINEM – “Lose Yourself”

Lyrics Courtesy  AZLyrics.com

Look, if you had, one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted. In one moment
Would you capture it, or just let it slip?
Yo

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti
He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,
But he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down,
The whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out
He’s choking how, everybody’s joking now
The clock’s run out, time’s up, it’s over, blaow!
Snap back to reality. Oh, there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He’s so mad, but he won’t give up that
Easy, no

He won’t have it, he knows his whole back’s to these ropes
It don’t matter, he’s dope
He knows that but he’s broke
He’s so sad that he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, that’s when it’s
Back to the lab again, yo
This whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass him

[Chorus:]

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go (go)
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime (yo)
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go (go)
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime (yo)
(You better)
