10 Different Kinds Of Confidence: A Running Playlist

Each new year brings with it a sense of possibility. While there’s a difference between observing these possibilities and capitalizing on them, a little confidence can go a long way in helping you cross the chasm between. To that end, we’ve collected a range of songs that’ll put the wind at your back.

This playlist warms up with a Macklemore and Skylar Grey song about feeling great and cools down with a Demi Lovato track that makes no apologies for its fierceness. In the middle, you’ll find a remix that exudes swagger from Iggy Azalea, a statement of purpose from Dear Tatiana and a rhetorical question from Rod Stewart and DNCE. Moreover, we’ve tried to include a few tracks that summon good cheer—even without a bouncy beat. On this front, you’ll find an affirmative anthem from Shania Twain, astute observations from Hailee Steinfeld and a track embodying a renewed sense of youth from Miley Cyrus.

Although confidence generally springs from within, a reminder of the importance of practicing confidence never hurts. Moreover, the virtue of a musical reminder is that it can help lift your sneakers and spirits at once. When you’re ready to move onward and upward, you’ll find a wealth of inspiration below.

Shania Twain – Life’s About to Get Good – 101 BPM
