motivation .

Lyrics: NF (2019)

The Search

Try to hold it underwater but it always survives

Then it comes up out of nowhere like an evil surprise

Then it hovers over you to tell you millions of lies

You don't relate to that? Must not be as crazy as I am
Just think about it for a second, if you look at your face

Every day when you get up and think you'll never be great

You'll never be great, not because you're not, but the hate

Will always find a way to cut you up and murder your faith

Motivation is one side of a two-edged sword. The sword will always have two edges. We will always have to battle against the side of our mind that says ‘I can’t do this’. But we can flip the sword around.

No one is perfect and everyone slips up sometimes, but success does not exist without sufficient motivation.

And that’s hard. But it’s the truth.


But lately, I been thinkin' I'ma have to

Lettin' go of things that I'm attached to

World don't stop just because I'm in a bad mood

You don't know what love is 'til you holdin' onto somethin' that you can't lose


I swear I'm tryna get it together

Sleeves up, puttin' work in, tryna be better

I like to rap, but I ain't gon' do it forever

Forget to charge up my focus, and I'm holdin' my head up

Perseverance doesn’t automatically create success, but it will get us much closer to the result we want.

As bleak as things may appear, things can always be  improved to some extent. Failure helps us succeed next time.

When I Grow Up

I been crunchin' numbers, you ain't gotta be a mathematician

To see the odds ain't rootin' for me

I can't lie though, it's kinda how I like it to be

The underdog, yeah, you probably think you know what I mean


That don't make a lot of sense to me, forget the Happy Meals

I don't like the dollar menu, I would rather make a mil'

Huh? Make a meal? Nah, I said make a mil'

Home-cookin', get the grill, how you want it? Pretty well?

megs’ thoughts

No matter how much the odds lie against us, motivation goes a long way to change them.

Small, conscious actions to improve those odds add up to create a better picture, despite everyone trying to stop us from succeeding.
