Listed below is what we consider to be 16 of our best self-help podcasts--although we encourage you to download and listen to all of our inspirational podcasts to keep you focused on achieving a better life for you and those around you.

1) Self-Help Podcasts: Your Authentic Self

Every person alive is in the midst of writing a book. And in that book, we are what we are. Our character teaches above our intentions. We like to imagine that we communicate our virtues or vices only by our direct actions, and do not see that we breathe virtue or vice every moment of our lives. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

2) Self-Help Podcasts: The Key to Success

Nobody can hand you a ready-made key to open the door of success. You must fashion your own key and find the combination of the lock for yourself. No magician can waft you to the heights of fortune and fame. You cannot fly there on the wings of an airplane. The road, often rocky, has to be traversed on foot. - B. C. Forbes

3) Self-Development Podcasts: Self-Made Men & Women

A single human soul standing here upon the margin we call time, overlooking the solemn past (which can neither be recalled nor remodeled), ever chafing against finite limitations, entangled with contradictions, eagerly seeking to pierce the clouds and darkness of the ever mysterious future, has attractions for thought and study more numerous and powerful than all other objects beneath the sky. - Frederick Douglass

4) Self-Help Podcasts: The Positive Psychology of Success

How shall we measure success? By the honest work done; by the money earned or wealth produced; by the knowledge acquired, culture attained, and character realized; by the joy experienced and the happiness given to others; by the influence exerted and the service rendered in harmony with the law of human progress.. - Newton N. Riddle

5) Self-Help Podcasts: How to Be an Intelligent Conversationalist

To clothe the thoughts in clear and elegant language, and to convey them impressively to the mind of another, is no common attainment. The man or woman who is an intelligent, tactful conversationalist, commands one of the most essential elements of a successful life. - John Albert Cone

6) Self-Development Podcasts: Making the Most Out of Life

Each moment comes to us rich in possibilities, bringing to us duty, privilege, and the call for achievement. All life is condensed into the moment that we call "now," and the wasting of a moment is, for that moment, the wasting of a life. - Philip Stafford Moxom

7) Self-Help Podcasts: How to Be Bold & Courageous

Do not fear what others may do to you. No one can materially hinder you in the realization of your heart's desire, if you have built up the will to aspire. Learn to joy in the battle, as a chance to prove your mettle. - Clare Tree Major

8) Self-Help Podcasts: The Inward Life

I should like to make you desire the things that are real, that are worth being loved and acquired by stress and toil; and among all these things there is nothing to be compared with force. Force is itself a virtue; and by virtue I understand every power that excites in us an intenser life, and joy, and hope. - Charles Wagner

9) Self-Development Podcasts: How to Build Self-Confidence

Have confidence in yourself. Believe in your ability to do big things. Only by having faith in yourself, can you compel others to have faith in you. Think big thoughts and back them up with big deeds. You can, if you will. And you will. - Benjamin Johnson

10) Self-Help Podcasts: How to Accept Others as They Are

When we realize that to attain even a partial control over our own thoughts is a wonderful achievement (while complete self-mastery borders on the miraculous), the absurdity of trying to regulate the behavior of others is made so plain that no one can evade admitting it. - Benjamin Johnson

11) Self-Help Podcasts: Overcoming Fear & Anxiety

Quit fearing things that may never happen, just as you would quit any bad practice which has caused you suffering. Fill your mind with courage, hope, and confidence. Do not wait until fear thoughts become entrenched in your mind and your imagination. Do not dwell upon them. Apply the antidote instantly, and the enemies will flee. - Orison Swett Marden

12) Self-Development Podcasts: The Power of Imagination

All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed. The first step in the “renewing of the mind” is desire. You must want to be different (and intend to be different) before you can begin to change yourself. - Neville Goddard

13) Self-Help Podcasts: Living a Joyful Life

Never be disappointed or discouraged, and have nothing whatever to do with worry. Whatever comes, count it all joy. Those who meet adversity in an attitude of peace, harmony, and joy will turn their enemies into friends, and failures into a greater good. - Christian D. Larson

14) Self-Help Podcasts: Making Your Dreams Come True

No matter your current condition in life, no matter the hardships with which you have to deal, don’t let go of your desire and dreams. Whether it be music, art, literature, business, or a profession, hold on to it. No matter how dark the outlook, keep on visualizing your desire and light, and opportunity will come to enable you to make it a reality. - Orison Swett Marden

15) Self-Development Podcasts: The Secret of Financial Success

Financial success is won by those who dare to think big. Little thoughts, plans, and ideals beget little interest, little effort, little enthusiasm in the individual, and awaken little or no interest in the minds of others. The radical difference between the pop-corn vendor at the fair and the next Steve Jobs is in the size of their ideas and concepts. - B.F. Austin

16) Self-Help Podcasts: The Meaning of Life

Next year at this time, you will be farther onward or farther backward. Every thought, every word, and every act of each day is chiseling out the statue you are making of yourself. If you desire to be an expression of the universe’s finest handiwork, you must work with care. - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
