"You only get what you give."

Listen Now:

I wanted to feature some incredible song lyrics. One of the songs on my morning dance playlist is “You Get What You Give” by New Radicals, which is a song about some kids trying to find their way in life. The song alternates between telling a story and sharing lessons they should keep in mind along the way. You probably recognize the chorus:

You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
We only get what we give

I love the practical contrast this song provides. It talks about delinquency, amazing times, crippling doubt, and depression. That’s life, plain and simple, but the ultimate advice it gives through all of those emotions is the song title - “You only get what you give.” That which you share with the world will return to you in unexpected and magnified ways.

Be the brightness that lights up other people’s lives, and you’ll find that your life is much much brighter.
