  5. What is Motivation ?

Motivation is the word derived from the word ’motive’ which means needs, desires, wants or drives within the individuals. It is the process of stimulating people to actions to accomplish the goals. In the work goal context the psychological factors stimulating the people’s behaviour can be –

  • desire for money
  • success
  • recognition
  • job-satisfaction
  • team work, etc

One of the most important functions of management is to create willingness amongst the employees to perform in the best of their abilities. Therefore the role of a leader is to arouse interest in performance of employees in their jobs. The process of motivation consists of three stages:-

  1. A felt need or drive
  2. A stimulus in which needs have to be aroused
  3. When needs are satisfied, the satisfaction or accomplishment of goals.

Therefore, we can say that motivation is a psychological phenomenon which means needs and wants of the individuals have to be tackled by framing an incentive plan.

Best Motivational Podcasts

Everyone needs some motivation and inspiration from time to time. As Zig Ziglar said, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

And he’s right, motivation doesn’t last. You need to take in new and inspiring information so negative news and social media don’t feed your brain negativity 24/7. One of the easiest ways is listening to podcasts.

Here are the best motivational podcasts to help you learn new ideas, find new strategies, and learn from the most successful people on the planet.

I love these personal development podcasts. I get so motivated, inspired, and ready to conquer the day with these motivational podcasts! #motivation #podcasts #inspiration #selfimprovement #morningroutine

19 Best Motivational Podcasts to Inspire Your Success

1. Impact Theory

Personally, I think this is the best of all the best motivational podcasts out there. Impact Theory has impacted (no pun intended) my life more than any others on this list. This is the mecca of personal development content.

If you’re looking to 10X your life and learn from the smartest and most successful people on the planet, this is your podcast. The creator of Impact Theory, Tom Bilyeu, is the co-found of the billion-dollar brand Quest nutrition.

While at Quest he started a smaller version of this podcast, Inside Quest, to help inspire and motivate his staff. Since starting Impact Theory he’s grown his brand by building a massive studio in his house! Tom and his wife, Lisa Bilyeu, also host several other podcasts like Health Theory and Relationship Theory.

Best Impact Theory Episodes:

Success Live Seminar - Tom Bilyeu

Maybe I’m biased because I got to meet Tom but his podcast Impact Quotes deliver some of the best motivational speeches ever!

2. The Mindvalley Podcast

The Mindvalley Podcast is one of the greatest self improvement podcasts out there. The founder and host of the podcast, Vishen Lakhiani get high caliber guests to appear.

This podcast explores a ton of different topics including learning how to access your flow states, crushing your business, and becoming the absolute best version of yourself. Vishen is an unbelievable interviewer and highly recommend listening to this podcast.

3. The School of Greatness Podcast

Have you ever wondered what makes certain people so successful while others simply go through life? Lewis Howes, the creator of The School of Greatness, explores this topic in depth on his podcast.

If you don’t know Lewis he is New York Times bestselling author, world record holder, lifestyle entrepreneur, and former pro football player. After his career was suddenly ended he took his life in a new direction and has dominated the personal development space.

Lewis interviews some of the most successful people on the planet. From deca-millionaires like Grant Cardone to professional athletes (including his latest with Kobe) and top influencers in the world.

Here are some of the best School of Greatness episodes that I think you’ll love:

I personally love this podcast as it was really the first one that got me started with my own personal growth. This profound personal growth podcast is sure to keep you dreaming big, and — better yet — achieving those dreams.

Bonus: Do This Lewis Howes Exercise

Lewis also does solo episodes which I’ve found incredibly helpful for my life and business. One of my favorites was about creating the perfect day.

Here’s how you can do it too:

On a blank sheet of paper, write down a few paragraphs of what your perfect day looks like, even if it’s far from your reality. Write down how it feels, how it looks, and write as much detail as possible.

Then, get more detailed and map out every hour of your day. While it might seem unnecessary, it’s actually a great exercise for your subconscious mind. With the perfect day formula, you are giving your brain-specific instructions on your goals.

As Lewis said, “Ask yourself, Am I living in the spirit of this perfect day? Why not? Maybe it’s not going to happen right away. Maybe it’s going to take a couple years. But at least we can work toward it.”

3. #MaxOut Your Life with Ed Mylett

Ed Mylett is one of best motivational speakers on the planet and has an amazing podcast, “The #maxout show“! Not to mention one of the newest ones in the self-improvement space. In a crowded market, Ed stands out to create some unbelievable episodes.

While Ed isn’t a household name like Tony Robbins, it’s only a matter of time before he reaches superstar status. Ed Mylett is an ultra-successful entrepreneur who was listed on Forbes as the richest 50 under 50. And it’s entirely self-made.

Check out some of my favorite episodes that I know will inspire you to max out your life:

4. The Passionate Few

One of the newer podcasts, The Passionate Few by Omar Elattar has some incredibly epic guests. They include people like Dan Lok, Ed Mylett, The Cardone’s, Joel Marion, and tons of others.

Omar has an unbelievable interviewing style that makes it easy to learn from the successful people he brings on to his show. I can’t recommend this self-improvement podcast enough!

5. 10% Happier With Dan Harris

The 10% Happier podcast is all about meditation which makes it more of a mindfulness podcast. It offers a unique glimpse into the lives of various authorities, notable celebrities, public figures, and interesting personalities who meditate. The guests share a ton of meditation tips and insights.

The host is ABC anchor Dan Harris, a skeptic-turned-regular meditator who credits mindfulness meditation to help him deal with the stress of his job. The interviews remain journalistic in their style, but they are always entertaining. Plus, it’s produced by ABC so it’s very high quality!

9. Kwik Brain Podcast

Kwik Brain was created by Jim Kwik and is one of the most fun self-improvement podcasts out there. Jim was one of my favorite episodes of Tom Bilyeu’s Impact Theory and can’t recommend this guy enough.

Jim was once called “the boy with the broken brain” after two falls left him with a learning disability as a child. But refusing to accept that label, he studied the mind as much as anyone and ended up becoming a memory expert.

Kwik Brain Podcast is a fun and fast-paced podcast designed to help you learn how to learn and double your brain power. What I love about the podcasts is that Jim gives you tactics to immediately use in your life.

In his podcast, he shows you the tricks to increase your learning abilities and live a better life. Jim actually makes learning fun to learn too. Only if schools could figure it out!

The Tony Robbins podcast is hosted by the legendary (and arguably best motivational speaker) of all time himself. This revolutionary podcast will dive into all different areas of life. From health, business, relationships, and finances, Tony will teach you tons of great content.

14. Eventual Millionaire

Who doesn’t want to become a millionaire?

Even if you don’t want greed and a lavish life, money makes the world go round. The more wealth you create, the more people you help. This podcast will help you create the mindset and habits of a millionaire.

The Eventual Millionaire is a business podcast from Jamie Tardy. And Jamie has some incredible guests as she has interviewed more than 100 millionaires while researching for her book. While researching for her book, also titled, The Eventual Millionaire she found it obvious what separated average people from millionaires.

As she said on the podcast, “They let their excuses and fear stop them.”

She would go on to say

Millionaires have fear and excuses, too, but they don’t let it stop them. They continue to move forward anyway, even if it’s uncomfortable and even if they don’t know exactly the right steps to take. They are masters at jumping in and figuring things out. And yes, they fail a lot doing things that way, too, but they keep moving forward.”

15. Entrepreneur On Fire

As a solopreneur trying to create a business, I absolutely love Entrepreneur On Fire. The host, John Lee Dumas (JLD), is an absolute beast on the microphone. Not many people are outworking John as he pumps out 7 episodes per week!

He’s been recognized by top entrepreneur Gary Vee as someone who is very deserving of his success. Entrepreneur on Fire never fails to inspire me. I love John’s no-nonsense but friendly interview style.

Plus, his guests are not as well known as some of the other podcasts which give this one a great vibe. It’s also great to get some motivation from people who are already running online businesses.

16. Bulletproof Radio

Bulletproof Radio is a podcast born of host Dave Asprey’s relentless 15-year vision to upgrade the human being using any and every available technology.  After seeing Dave live at Tony Robbins, Unleash the Power Within seminar, I can say personally, this guy is next-level.

If you don’t know Dave, he is an investor and tech entrepreneur who is obsessed with squeezing everything possible out of life. He draws on lessons from meditation experts, biochemists, sleep specialists, Olympic nutritionists, and his own experience.

He shares the secrets to maximize your daily performance in every episode.

17. The Tim Ferriss Show

The Tim Ferris Show is hosted by “human guinea pig” Tim Ferriss himself. Ferriss uses his show to pry useful tips from ultra-successful people like Tony Robbins, Peter Thiel, Sir Richard Branson, and so many more.

18. The EntreLeadership Podcast

This self improvement podcast, EntreLeadership, includes discussions with business and leadership focus. Some of the guests include Mark Cuban, Seth Godin, and Simon Sinek. I just started listening to this one and definitely recommend the Dave-Ramsey produced podcast!

19. Optimal Living Daily

Optimal Living Daily is one of my absolute favorite podcasts to end out this epic list. It’s so different than every other podcast which makes it so fun to listen too.

The host, Justin Malik, basically reads blogs from various authorities such as Leo Babauta of Zen Habits and Ramit Sethi of I Will Teach You to Be Rich.  I love it because the episodes are around 10 minutes and a good way to hear your favorite blog posts.

Plus, each episode comes out the same time every single day. This is one of the best positive thinking podcasts to listen too on your way to work!
