Flag waving, parades, hot dogs, lemonade, family and friends. It’s the 4th of July and you’re looking forward to a break from work.
How about if you not only get a break, but return to work with a new sense of excitement, boldness, ownership, inclusion, and pride?
These 5 Independence Day songs (plus a bonus song) might just do that for you…
1. “Coming to America” by Neil Diamond
Got a dream to take them there
They’re coming to America
Got a dream they’ve come to share
They’re coming to America…
You’ve lost the dream and work is pure drudgery. Your energy and anticipation have dissipated. Revitalize by remembering when it was new. Feel what our forefathers and foremothers felt with the awesomeness of “Coming to America”.
If the song isn’t enough to re-kindle your spirits, read Alli Polin’s “Clear the Dust Off Your Passion”. Alli will get you re-directed. I like her observation and suggestion that “If your current perspective is ‘this sucks’, clearly you need to tap into a more powerful perspective”.
