11 Motivational Podcasts to Improve Your Life

Feeling down on yourself? Uninspired? These motivational podcasts might be able to help.

Everyone, even a motivational speaker like Tony Robbins, has moments where hopelessness and fear become the main mindsets you deal with. That terrible feeling that nothing matters can get anyone feeling down—but you just can't let yourself fall into that trap!

Once in a blue moon, you might just need to have a reassuring pep talk to make things better. That's why having motivational podcasts on your stream can make such a huge difference.

Not sure where to find that motivational voice that can supercharge your personal growth? Here are some of the best names to check out when you need a little upbeat advice. Whether you need a one time pick me up or something to guide your path to long-term self-improvement, these podcasts can help.

Let's Discuss

Let's Discuss is a podcast that's informative, motivational, and just an all-around fun time. This show features two awesome lifestyle bloggers as they talk about everyday life obstacles and trying to have a healthy romantic life. 

A good way to describe this podcast is a warm hug. It's like hearing your best female friends chat and give you uplifting advice with a kick of motivation. Ella Gregory and Monica Beatrice Welburn really know how to talk about the journey life gives us.

The Life Coach School

Though the name might suggest that this is just a show for life coaches, The Life Coach School is actually one of the most motivational podcasts you can listen to. This podcast is all about helping you improve your life, your outlook, and the way you view challenges.

This podcast is all about teaching you to be your own coach, rather than have people kick you into gear. If you're ever in need of a self-analysis, listen to any episode of The Life Coach School.

The Tim Ferriss Show

Tim Ferriss is a New York Time bestselling author, a human guinea pig, and an incredibly successful entrepreneur. He's incredibly popular, especially among young entrepreneurs. You might have already read his book, The 4-Hour Workweek, and loved it. 

The Tim Ferriss Show is his personal podcast, and much like his book, it offers excellent career and life advice. Every episode involves Ferriss deconstructing how amazing people get the success they want. 

Career-oriented people who love motivational podcasts will fall in love with this one—and what he has to say!

The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes

His book by the same name is one of the most detailed guides on how to improve your success out there. Whether you're looking to advance yourself in work, your relationships, or just your internal self-talk, Howes has good advice. It's a great podcast to improve your life.

The School of Greatness is pretty similar in terms of content. He asks world record holders, pro athletes, and world-famous entrepreneurs how they became so great. If you need to dream big, listen to their interviews and get empowered.

The Robin Sharma Mastery Sessions

Robin Sharma is the type of guy who would confuse most people. At one point in his life, he was very wealthy. He even owned a Ferrari! But, after realizing that the money didn't really do much for him, he sold everything he owned and became a monk. 

After writing a book about his journey, he set out to create motivational podcasts that give you a fresh outlook on everything related to life and material possessions. When you hear what he has to say, you'll learn that success is a skill and that you can make it work for you.

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

Gretchen Rubin's Happier is all about looking at the brighter side of things. Her advice is all about getting better habits that result in a happier and healthier life. If you want something that goes a step farther, you can also look into podcasts about mental health.

The Marie Forleo Podcast

Did you ever wonder what it takes to get Oprah Winfrey to call you one of the best thought leaders of your generation? Marie Forleo can tell you; she's gotten that honor—and many more. 

As an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and lifelong learner, Forleo's goal is to help you be the best version of you. The Marie Forleo Podcast touches on just about every subject you could need motivation for, including your career, love, and your overall role in society. 

London Real

Guests run the gamut from politicians to drug smugglers. It's a great pick for people who wonder, "How did they do that?"

Kwik Brain Podcast

Most of us have moments where we wish we could learn something faster, or do something better. Maybe it's a memory issue or a language that we've always wanted to learn. Looking into typical motivational podcasts won't really help that much here, but the Kwik Brain Podcast isn't your average podcast. 

This podcast focuses on helping you improve your life by making you smarter. Fast tips, tricks, and interesting stories will entertain you and give you a better outlook on life. It's definitely a podcast that will inspire your quest for personal growth.

The Tony Robbins Podcast
