If you’re not growing, you’re dying.
Alright, those are some strong words. But they’re true. If you’re not growing in whatever area of life you’re looking to excel in (work, marriage, side hustles), then your dreams are dying. It’s not enough to stay motivated for one day. You have to do the hard work even when you’re tired and don’t want to.
A great way to to get extra motivation is through listening to podcasts. Specifically, self-improvement podcasts can help encourage us to be better and continue fighting for our dreams. If you’re in the market for a new podcast, then check out one of these four that we highly recommend:
