Inspiration is not something that one acquires just from anywhere and from anyone. And that’s one of the many reasons why people struggle coping up with life especially when facing adversities.
It’s good to find the right story of success or the perfect story of triumph to give you a pat on the back and start working to achieve your own holy grail.
With podcasts, little do you know, finding a motivation might be as quick and simple as it seems. Although there’s no guarantee that the content you get from them would give a big boost to you and your passion, it’s still nice to have references and to empathize with people’s great stories.
Just right on time, we have listed 5 inspirational podcasts you can listen to:
1. Good Life Project
This podcast by Jonathan Fields features a series of interviews of people who have overcome tough times. They are geared to present deep and motivational insights not just from the host themselves, but from the stories they feature particularly those who have climbed their way up the pole despite the struggles. The Good Life Project caters to audiences who are thriving and are struggling to find hope.
“Every week, we share inspirational, intimate and disarmingly-unfiltered conversations about living a fully engaged, fiercely connected and purpose-drenched life. From iconic world-shakers like Elizabeth Gilbert, Brene Brown, Sir Ken Robinson, Seth Godin and Gretchen Rubin to everyday guests, every story matters,” they wrote on their official website.
2. Dear Sugars
This program is hosted by Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond. Relationship advice is the highlight of the problem.

It’s a lively and thought-provoking podcast that brings great advice about happiness.
4. The Minimalists
This program hosted by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus is a rather simple one. Not content-wise but concept-wise. The Minimalist features motivational advice and quotes in the context of living a great and meaningful life with less and simplicity. Their contents are often direct and straightforward which matches the theme of the whole program very well. They promote enjoying a simple life in a world of excessiveness.
5. The Notable Woman
This program hosted by Cristin Downs is perfect for every woman. Every week, they feature interviews of women who conquered adversities and who have ambitiously taken on their world. It’s a motivational and empowering podcast not just because they feature women, but because of every lesson they provide in each story they present.
“Women are allowed. Allowed to exist. To take up space. To breathe, to love, to laugh, to speak, to scream, to curse and more. To lead, to think, to create. Women are notable, just as they are,” they wrote on their official website.
