Soundtrack to my Life

Thursday, June 11, 2015

So this post is kind of different, but I really wanted to switch it up a little! This past semester in my IMC class we had to write about what we would put on the soundtrack to our "brand" if we had one.  I thought this was an interesting activity because it made me really think about what my "personal brand" was.  A personal brand is basically the qualities and attributes that make you- you!  When thinking about what I would put if I had a soundtrack to my brand I had to not only think about songs I enjoyed, but songs that really showcased my values and who I am as a person.  


The first song that came to mind is by one of my favorite artists, John Mayer.  His song called "No Such Thing" is a song that I have listened to all throughout my teenage years and growing up.  It is about not conforming to people's standards and living life the way you want to live.  This song fits who I am as a brand because I feel that it is important to embrace who you are and be yourself no matter what people may say about it.  To me, it is important to stay true to who you are and do what makes you happy because at the end of it all, your happiness is all that matters!

The next song I knew I needed to include on the soundtrack of my brand would be "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King.  Although I am not a warthog nor a prairie dog I relate to the message of the song and definitely live by it everyday.  In life we can choose to hide away in fear, worried about every little thing that can go wrong or we can simply go with the flow.  Instead of spending every second of my life worrying about my mistakes I learn and grow from them.  Like Timon says, it's a problem free philosophy! 








Finally what would a soundtrack of my brand even be if there wasn't a Beyonce song on it? "Run the World (Girls)" by the Queen B is a song that really personifies me as a woman in college.  The lyrics in the song are all about women empowerment and female success.  As a member of a sorority, student employee, and Communication Studies major I strive everyday to not only do my best, but inspire others to do their best as well.  By inspiring other women to suceed and reach their full potential I truly believe we can change the world.  Who run the world? GIRLS!
These are just a few of my favorite songs that I feel truly epitomize me.  I wish I could add more, but I'm afraid the list could go on forever!! Hopefully this inspires you to think about your "personal brand" and what values and qualities make up who YOU are! What songs would be on the soundtrack to the soundtrack of your brand??

Stay beautiful,
