Fantastic Song for Those Seeking Hope that Someone they Love Will Change or Mend their Ways!

‘Some People Change’ by Montgomery Gentry

Nelson Mandela There is No Passion to be Found Playing Small

Nelson Mandela Plaque on Amazon

A perfect song to give you hope that, yes, some people can change! Even if that person is you, this song can serve as an example on how people do successfully change the course of their lives!

If you’re trying to point your life in a new direction, take heart from the challenging examples pointed to in this video on people changing their life for the better: The video starts off with a young man who had been trapped in a family with a racist attitude, and he fights for his own beliefs and breaks the chain; the next example is a young mother who, because of her young child, decides to quit drinking…she finds in herself the courage to change.

Wanting something more in life can be as simple as choosing a better path than the one you’re on. If that’s your life story, then this country song is for you.

“Here’s to the strong; thanks to the brave, don’t give up hope, some people change, against all odds, against the grain, love finds a way….some people change”

— Lyrics from ‘Some People Change’ by Montgomery Gentry

Some People Change is a song on the album of the same name released in 2006. Although not as known as some of the other songs like, ‘What Do You Think About That’ and ‘Lucky Man’, the song is utterly fantastic! The message is powerful and you’ll see in the video that the song is sung almost in Gospel format…Excellent song!

Tired of Your Job? Blast ‘Something More’ by Sugarland Through those Headphones!

Country Song About Wanting More in Life by Sugarland

Something More – Get it on iTunes

Something More by Sugarland is the first obvious choice for a song about going for the gusto in this life! If you’re at the point where you’re even considering a job change, then this pick-me-up-tune is what you’ll want as your anthem. You’re job is exhausting you, your boss is draining your spirit, and the hours you’re keeping are eroding any chance you have at enjoying life the way you really want to….if this sounds like you, this is your song.

Making changes, especially job changes in a world where jobs can be hard to come by, takes thought, planning and a measure of courage. If you’ve planned well, and after over thinking it to the max, are ready to plunge into ‘the new you’, ‘Something More’ tells your story perfectly…’Monday, hard to wake up, fill my coffee cup, I’m out the door,….I’m running out of gas and out of time….there’s gotta be something more, there’s gotta be more than this….'(lyrics).

‘I Ain’t Settlin’ Tired of Shooting to Low’ – Lyrics from Another Butt Kickin’ Song by Sugarland

Settlin’ by Sugarland

Enjoy the Ride by Sugarland

Settlin’ by Sugarland – Get it on iTunes

So you’ve been ‘settling’ your entire life, and you’ve had ‘enough of so-so’, if that’s the case then you need to add this song to your playlist! In fact, if you’ve decided to make some big changes in your life and you’re looking for a motivational tune to play, then crank this puppy up!

I’ve recently made a big decision to make changes in my own life, and this song gets played at least three times during my workout – hey it doesn’t matter how old you are…we all need inspiration and changing our life for the better can begin at any age; you don’t have to be 20 or 30 to make life altering decisions…try it at 50, 60, 70 or even 80! Why not? Implementing change requires a plan, and let’s face it … it also works better with a great song!

The lyrics to this song are terrific! They’ll get you moving, get you thinking, and best of all, if you remember to call upon this song when you’re slipping … it’ll help to keep you on track!

“With some good red wine and my brand new shoes, Gonna dance a blue streak around my living room”

— Lyrics from ‘Settlin’ by Sugarland

‘I’ve Dealt with my Ghosts and I’ve Faced all my Demons Finally Content with a Past I Regret’ (Lyrics)

I’m Movin’ On by Rascal Flatts

Movin' On by Rascal Flatts

Movin’ On by Rascal Flatts – Get it on iTunes

I’m Movin’ On is a much softer song about wanting more in life, and the lyrics describe a person who’s finally content with who they are…they’ve forgiven themselves for all their mistakes and bad choices. They’ve decided to change their life in a significant way, they’re leaving town…they’re moving on.

The song speaks about a person realizing that, although no one in their circle of life means them harm, they won’t be allowed to change unless they leave; It’s been a long hard road but they’ve finally found peace within themselves. Perhaps, as the song says, ‘forgiveness will find them some where down this road’.

For those making life changing choices about moving away or moving out of a particular situation, this song is especially powerful.

“I’ve lived in this place and I know all the faces, Each one is different but they’re always the same, They mean me no harm but it’s time that I face it, They’ll never allow me to change”

— Lyrics from I’m Movin’ On, by Rascal Flatts
