Classical music for success.
For the former, uplifting, faster, louder songs are usually preferred, with a higher beat per minute to increase the heart rate. Individuals will have different songs that work for them to do this, and it can cross musical genres, with dance, soul, hip hop and rock all common music types played to achieve this. Some songs, such as Heroes by David Bowie and Survivor by Destiny's Child, have lyrics that are directly motivational, whereas others are wordless with the instrumentals creating the desired vibe. Hubspot lists the most popular motivational songs as The Final Countdown by Europe and Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor.
The latter was made famous by the Rocky movies, as a soundtrack to the boxer training, and music is regularly used in this way as a motivation to achieving physical goals. Runners and cyclists may wear earphones, sports teams enter the field to songs that get the blood pumping and the mind positive, and at gyms faster songs are chosen to accompany working out. One example of a song that is suited for both its words and music is Harder Better Faster Stronger by Daft Punk.
Success meditation music.
On the other extreme, a relaxed state can be essential to achieving success, and for this slower, calming songs are usually chosen. Meditational success music is largely instrumental, providing soothing sounds to focus the mind, and are less about specific songs and more about the mood they create. Pioneers of this movement are German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen and American theorist John Cage. Typical instruments used are flutes and pipes, and in sound therapy, gongs and bells are said to have a healing effect. Mantras and hymns are also music techniques used in meditation and mindfulness to help achieve positivity and success.
