Music is a great way to change your emotional state, helping you feel more positive and confident. Listening to your favorite uplifting music naturally puts you in a good mood and helps you feel confident.

Here's a list of favorite music I keep on my MP3 player to help me feel confident:

Bon Jovi: It's My Life

It's your life, and you can do with it whatever you like. Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

No Doubt: It's My Life

No Doubt's take on the same theme.

Survivor: Eye Of The Tiger

Classic track for getting pumped up. I know pick-up artists who advise students to listen to this before hitting the clubs to meet women on a Saturday night.

Kenny Loggins: Danger Zone

Picture yourself on the back of a motorcycle riding along beside the airport, ala Tom Cruise. Works every time.

Van Halen: Jump

If this doesn't get your heart going, check that you've still got a pulse.

The Bee Gees: Stayin' Alive

This is a great one for learning to swagger along the street confidently. Put your headphones on and practice walking along as if you're John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

Yes: Owner Of A Lonely Heart

I don't know exactly why, but this one totally works for me too.

Gavin DeGraw: I Don't Want To Be

I don't want to be anything other than me. A good reminder to be yourself.

Ace Of Base: Beautiful Life

Great reminder of how good life really is. It's just that we forget sometimes.

U2: Beautiful Day

U2 on the same theme.

Midnight Oil: One Country

Threw this one in especially for other Australians. A stirring song from one of the country's greatest ever bands.
