And in order to achieve that, a person needs to establish what his/her shortcomings are, find and learn of ways on how to get rid of it, and then understand how to apply said knowledge on a daily basis to achieve said transformation.
Self improvement podcasts are an effective and convenient way of trying to change for the better.
First of all, they’re practically free. You can listen to it whenever you need or want to. And there’s a never-ending amount of content out there for you to listen to.
Even if you just stick to just one podcast series, the lessons you get from it are more than enough to rewire your brain into a more positive and constructive frame of mind.
In this article, I have compiled several podcasts that focus on improving one’s self, and how to see life in a more positive light.
They had a huge impact on me, and I hope that it will also have the same effect on yours as well.
11 Self Improvement Podcasts:

Personally referring to himself as a “biohacker” Asprey is a world-class public speaker, a best selling author, and the creator of Bulletproof Nutrition.
The concept behind Bulletproof Radio is to combine all of Asprey’s in-depth work towards hacking human biology for the purpose of achieving the apex of good health.
Each episode of Bulletproof Radio is an exploration of the question “What are the simplest things you can do to be better at everything?”
And in each show; Asprey tries to answer the question using the opinions and findings of experts around the world.

Listening to Justin Malik is educational, motivational, and inspiring.
His Optimal Living Daily podcast is a treasure trove of developmental and personal growth teachings.
And unlike some of his peers, Malik presents all of this in a way that is very easy to understand and apply.
Episodes revolve around topics like strength training, productivity, and minimalism to name a few.
With each episode only lasting around 10 minutes; it is quite surprising how Malik presents arguments in an enlightening manner.
Through Happier with Gretchen Rubin, the accomplished author shares her knowledge and philosophy on how and what she believes constitutes as pure “happiness”.
Listening to her show, one would instantly realize that Rubin is happy and content with her current life.
And after listening to a few episodes; you eventually realize that all she wants is for you to be happy as well.
In typical Tony Robbins fashion, each episode is a deep dive into practical teachings about relationships, health, finance, and business.

Kwik Brain Podcast
Would you like to be great at learning Math, Languages, or maybe people’s personalities?
What about being ridiculously good at “learning”? Would that be something you would be interested in?
This is what Kwik Brain Podcast is all about; “meta-learning” or being good at “learning how to learn”.
Jim Kwik has established himself as an authority in this field. He has trained numerous company CEO’s and even played the role of consultant for some of the cast of the movie Dr. Strange.
If the idea of meta-learning is something that you’re curious about; I suggest you give the Kwik Brain Podcast a listen.
Conceived and hosted by Brené Brown, the #1 New York Times bestselling author talks about her 20 years of research and experience with human psychology in a way that is unpolished, raw, and honest.
As far as self improvement podcasts go; Unlocking Us takes on a different route and forces its listener to reflect on the core of what does it actually means to be human.
The idea is that by being uncomfortable, realizations unfiltered, thus more honest.
I admit that the approach is not for everyone. But it is definitely refreshing and quite interesting.
Hosted by co-founder of Quest Nutrition and globally known serial entrepreneur Tom Bilyeu; Impact Theory is all about Bilyeu discussing his philosophies and secrets to attaining success.
With the reputation Bilyeu has, it is no wonder as to why his podcast has played host to other notable industry names such as Vishen Lakhiani, Jim Kwik, and Peter Diamandis.

A great podcast to listen to for those that are looking for self improvement podcasts with a spiritual component to it.
Lively, a former business owner turned life coach, inspires, and uplifts her listeners to move away from a ‘hustle’ based mindset; teaching them to find balance between life and work.
