Motivational Music Monday | Christina Aguilera: “Fighter”

I know, I know. Christina Aguilera?? Set your personal thoughts aside (good or bad) and just listen to the words in the chorus of this song… you’ll be much better off in life if you were to live by these words!

Whether or not you like it, you can’t REALLY control what happens in life, you can only control how you respond to it. This song has an amazing message in the way that it suggests LEARNING THROUGH FAILURE!

When tough things happen, you have two choices:

  1. Succumb to them, and tell everyone about how tough you have it.
  2. Learn from the experience, WIN, and then help others who see the same situation overcome like you did!

For me, the choice is clear. It’s up to you to decide how you will react to the tough situations in life. But take a listen, and let the words penetrate you, and shape your perspective in life! Here’s Christina Aguilera with a song of overcoming, “Fighter”! (lyrics posted below the video)

After all that you put me through,
You think I’d despise you,
But in the end I wanna thank you,
‘Cause you’ve made me that much stronger

Well I thought I knew you,
thinkin’ that you were true
Guess I, I couldn’t trust called your bluff time is up
‘Cause I’ve had enough
You were there by my side,
always down for the ride
But your joy ride just came down in flames
’cause your greed sold me out in shame

After all of the stealing and cheating you probably think that I hold resentment for you
But uh uh, oh no, you’re wrong
‘Cause if it wasn’t for all that you tried to do, I wouldn’t know
Just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you ’cause it

*** CHORUS ***
Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter

Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter
*** CHORUS ***

Never saw it coming, all of your backstabbing
Just so you could cash in on a good thing before I’d realize your game
I heard you’re going round playing the victim now
But don’t even begin feeling I’m the one to blame
‘Cause you dug your own grave

After all of the fights and the lies ’cause you’re wanting to haunt me
But that won’t work anymore, no more, It’s over
‘Cause if it wasn’t for all of your torture
I wouldn’t know how to be this way now and never back down
So I wanna say thank you ’cause it


How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretend not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you’ll see YOU-WON’T-STOP-ME

I am a fighter and I
I ain’t gonna stop
There is no turning back I’ve had enough


You thought I would forget
But I remembered
‘Cause I remembered
I remembered
You thought I would forget
I remembered
‘Cause I remembered
I remembered
