Top 6 Podcasts for Finding and Fulfilling Your Purpose
Chances are you’re busy keeping all the plates spinning in your life, from holding down a job to looking after yourself and your family. Finding your purpose might be something you long to do but can’t work out how to fit into your over-crammed schedule.
If you don’t have time to go to a class or even read a book, listening to a podcast could be the answer. Here are the top five podcasts on helping you find and fulfill your life purpose.
1. Life On Purpose
Gregory Berg hosts the Life On Purpose podcast, interviewing inspirational people such as Bren Brown, Oren Harris, Dr. Bernie Siegel, and Danielle LaPorte. Conversations revolve around the big questions of living an intentional life, and what tips and tools can help bring purpose into your life.
Topics range from meditation to recovering from trauma to money wisdom and more.
Bestselling author Gretchen Rubin talks with her sister Elizabeth Craft, about how to make your life happier, healthier, more productive and more creative. It’s a weekly podcast.
NPR’s Invisibilia discuses all the invisible forces that shape our thoughts and behavior. Hosts Alix Spiegel and Hanna Rosin explore topics from negative thought patterns to personal boundaries and where all that self-doubt originates.
4. TED Radio Hour
Based on the world-famous TED Talks, each TED Radio Hour explores a theme such as the source of happiness, achieving stillness and what makes us human. Hosted by Guy Raz, the TED Radio Hour is a weekly broadcast.
If you’re thinking of switching careers or searching for a vocation, Working may be the podcast you need. Hosted by Jordan Weissmann of Slate magazine, the podcast interviews a diverse range of people about their jobs, taking a ‘day in the life’ approach. Expect to hear about what life is like as a forensic anthropologist, casting director, a deli owner, and marijuana lawyer, among many others.
6. The Good Life Project
The Good Life project aims to provide powerful stories, conversations, resources, and community to help you live your best life now. The podcast aspect of the project has a mission to support, inspire and grow the Good Life Project community, interviewing guests such as Bren Brown, Tim Ferriss, Byron Katie, and Elizabeth Gilbert. The podcast is broadcast twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.
And of course, you can also listen to my Visionary Womenpreneurs Radio with guests that share their visions and the great work they are doing to change the world, as well as shows about success, vision, mindset, etc. I’ve got some great interviews for you to check out!!
Listening to podcasts with inspirational guests, or insights can be motivational to you. Podcasts can be a great resource for learning and personal development. Listen in the car, or as you run, (not biking), or exercise. Use your time wisely. Of course, once you find a show that you like, subscribe to it, so that you know when the next show drops. It can help your mindset and attitude. It can be a great strategy especially when you are feeling down or frustrated.
Join the Purpose Project and dive deeper into figuring out YOUR life’s purpose. What makes you dance? What gets YOU into the flow?
Inside the purpose project you will find a beautiful guide book, checklist and video guided training. It’s actually not training, but more of a process of looking at yourself, your passions and figuring out the answers for YOU.
The workbook helps you organize your thoughts, and really hone in on what matters for YOU.
