Classic Podcasts for Women

July 17, 2016

The Inspirational Living podcast features readings from classic self-development writers of the late 19th and early 20th century, including women such as Hellen Keller, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and Clare Tree Major.

In the following list we have compiled our favorite 6 podcasts written by these women of tremendous optimism, talent, and imagination.


1) Podcasts for Women: The Optimistic Life

If I am happy in spite of my deprivations, if my happiness is so deep that it is a faith, so thoughtful that it becomes a philosophy of life—if, in short, I am an optimist, my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing. Indeed, I feel called to rise up in gladness of conviction and testify to the goodness of life. - Hellen Keller


2) Podcasts for Women: Mastering Self-Control

SELF-CONTROL is emotional control. Like all forces inherent in human nature, the emotional forces work equally thoroughly in either direction, as builders or as destroyers. You are, whether you like it or not, dealing with forces, with laws, with energy, which must expend themselves, must carry out their predestined mission — forces as blind and as inevitable as the forces of electricity or the laws of gravitation. - Clare Tree Major


3) Podcasts for Women: Accepting Life's Changes

Happiness is the joyful acceptance of change. Change is one of the conditions of existence. It is the price we pay for the power of consciousness. From the moment when we are endowed with the breath of life, to that seemingly final change which deprives us of it, our existence is a continuous succession of changes marking our development. - Ida Luella Rettinghouse Lyon


4) Podcasts for Women: Creating an Ideal Life

Make light of the circumstances that exist today. Do not permit them to play upon your emotions. But exalt the Ideal. Glorify it. Accord it all power. Rejoice in it and give it your most loving thought. Return to it at regular intervals, and always enthuse over it. But only to yourself. - Elizabeth Towne


5) Podcasts for Women: What Do You Live For?

Do you ever stop and ask yourself for what you are living? Is it for “success” in some undertaking? Then what are you doing to produce success? No matter how hard you may be working, unless you are finding pleasure and pride in your work, and doing it with cheerfulness, you are not moving forward toward real success. - Ella Wheeler Wilcox


6) Podcasts for Women: Overcoming Anxiety

In order to stop anxiety, we must first resolve that we WILL stop, not sometime, but now. The way to stop anything is to stop it, not to do it, not to think about it, not to talk about it. When the thought of anything about which we have been anxious comes to us, we must not let the thought stay, must not entertain it, must not think it through, but oppose the first suggestion of it. - Frances Marion Van Eps
