Podcasts to Help You Stay Motivated

Do you listen to podcasts? If not, you should. Podcasts are a great way to get motivation and inspiration while doing everyday activities. I am an avid podcast listener. They are playing while I get ready, in the car, cooking, and even right before I go to bed.  Not only do they give me inspiration for my everyday life they also give me motivation as a blogger and entrepreneur. This is my list of amazing podcasts to help you stay motivated! WARNING…These podcasts are addicting and I am okay with it!

Podcasts for Motivation

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

I love to listen to this podcast in the morning while getting ready! It is the perfect way to start my day.  Gretchen Rubin is the author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before.  She brings her practical advice about happiness and having good habits to this podcast. Every episode starts with a “try this at home” tip, followed by a personal development insight, then a listener question and it ends with their weekly gold star and demerit. She has amazing tip and tricks to make you everyday life simpler and happier!

The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes

The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes

I have a confession… I am a HUGE sports fan and that is how I discovered this podcast. Learning from world-class athletes is a great way to learn what it takes to fulfill your dreams.

Lewis Howes went from living on his sister’s couch to making over a million dollars in 2 years. How crazy is that? He is a dreamer, who wanted to make something of his life while still taking the time to care for others.  I would say he succeeded in those goals! Lewis Howes is an NYT bestselling author, lifestyle entrepreneur, former pro athlete and world record holder in football.

The goal of the School of Greatness is to share inspiring stories from the most brilliant business minds, world-class athletes and influential celebrities on the planet to help you find out what makes great people great.

Good Life Project

Podcasts to Help You Stay Motivated

Are you ready to live the good life? Better question…Why haven’t you started yet?

I love listening to this podcast on days when I am doubting myself. Don’t we all have those days? The days that we feel the pressure of the world to conform to the norms. This podcast will leave you wanting to do more and get out the middle and to go above on beyond what we ever thought we could be.

But don’t worry Jonathan Fields gives you tips and tricks along the way and he has even written a book on How to Live a Good Life.

The Daily Boost

Are you ready for some Monday motivation? Daily Boost gets you pumped up and ready for the week in under 15 minutes of pure life advice.

Here is what they teach you to do when a thought pops into your head:

Three possible choices have the power to guide your life: 1) You choose to discard the idea and remove it from your thoughts. 2) You immediately make the decision to follow through and turn your idea into reality. 3) You let it linger while you sit on the fence over what you should do. Choosing options one or two places you in control of your destiny. Option three will send you down an unknown path. The choice is yours. Make it a good one.
