Speaking of professional growth, here are some podcasts that speak directly to the most ambitious of people and help them through their self-realization process, as well as their professional careers. Some of the greatest minds of the century are at our fingertips, and we can’t allow this information to go unnoticed and unheard of.

The Tony Robbins Impact
Another golden mind of our age is Tony Robbins, who is mostly known for his motivational speeches, and similar to Darren Hardy, he starts with the individual.

The best place to start is at home. Becoming conscious about what we put in or on our bodies, and what habits we allow ourselves is the most important step to self-actualization and improvement. Here are the two podcasts that can help you become the better version of yourself by helping set boundaries, and inviting new, healthy habits into your everyday life.
