One Republic have created some classic inspirational songs. There would have been so many I could have chosen from, but I picked ‘Good Life’ and I’m going to share with you the four lessons I believe this song exemplifies:
- Be optimistic. By trying hard to create a ‘good life’ (a life that makes you happy) and by believing that you will have a good life, you will have one, because you have so much to give life and life will have so much to give you.
- Focus on the bigger picture. Sometimes there will be times when you feel trapped or frustrated by life, but in the grand scheme of things, those moments make up such a small proportion that you shouldn’t allow those moments to define your life; there are so many better things to still be grateful for.
- Let positivity take over. Choosing positivity over pessimism and negativity will change your perspective on life and always allow you to find happiness in the smallest of things and more often.
- Don’t waste your life. You only have one life, so why waste it being miserable? You shouldn’t allow yourself to miss out on happiness because of a bad day or a bad mood; opportunities come and go and it is our job to seize them!
