Any entrepreneur who has earned blockbuster success has likely faced rejection more times than you can count. They've mastered the ability to take a punch -- then get right back up and keep going. So how do they bounce back so quickly? For some, listening to powerful music can inspire a mindset shift.

Notice what happens when you crank up your favorite tune: You're likely smiling, you feel like you can take on the world, and you may even dance around (when no one's watching, of course). Essentially, it's an instant attitude-adjuster that can help pull you out of a lingering low – and approach your business with renewed vigor.
