“I won’t just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can’t write my story
I’m beyond the archetype
I won’t just conform
No matter how you shake my core
‘Cause my roots, they run deep, oh”
Does anybody else LOVE the song Rise by Katy Perry as much as I do?! If you haven’t heard it yet, listen to it here!!
I promise you this is the ultimate hype song as it never fails to remind me of who I am and what I’m capable of doing. I always put this song on repeat before I speak at an event, train a large group, or sub on my favorite radio morning show. It’s impossible for you to listen to this song and not be motivated!
This past week I’ve had this song stuck in my head.
Each time I listened, it reminded me that after all the tribulations of life that I have (and probably will) go through…I will always rise!
This song reminds me that I will persevere through any new challenge or struggle that life throws at me. Afterall, my motto is Go, Set, Ready!
It reminds me that I won’t conform to what society expects of me in order to succeed. Instead, I will continue to rise and break stereotypes. I am a successful female serial entrepreneur with an all-pink office, blonde hair, signature pink lipstick, and high heels.
It reminds me that my roots and passions run deep. Throughout my life I’ve been fortunate enough to make my passions my profession, which is to elevate women and push them to succeed. This is my mission in life!
And as Katy Perry wonderfully said–Don’t give up. Don’t be surprised, YOU will still rise, too!
