I’ve heard this song a hundred thousand times, but for some reason the lyrics really shouted at me today. I felt it was an appropriate motivational tool to share.  I don’t know about you, but for me sometimes READING the actual words to a song really shines a different light on it’s meaning… So enjoy!

Yeah, You could be the greatest
You can be the best
You can be the King Kong banging on your chest

You could beat the world
You could beat the war
You could talk to God, go banging on his door

You can throw your hands up
