Towards the end of December 2015 I made a post on my fitness blog listing 100 motivational quotes to start 2016. I find myself referring back to that post whenever I need the motivation to do something, so I thought for everyone who prefers this blog to my fitness blog I would list 100 inspirational/motivational song lyrics.
