I needed this

Ever have one of those middle of the day meltdowns? But you still have hours of stuff to do and you can’t leave the office and medicate for two hours. Breathe. Headphones. 7 minutes. It works for me every time.

Zewso - From Norway

Love your podcast!

I came upon your podcast by accident and cannot stop listening.

Your daily podcast is now the first thing I sit and listen to ever morning and it motivates my day! I especially love the Les Brown sessions.

I have downloaded many episodes to listen to in my car on long drives, as they are way more uplifting than the radio!

Keep up the great work and thank you!

Pashminakimba - from Australia

Love it

I love this podcast. I had been looking for a good motivational podcast to listen to every morning when I found this one; it’s short enough to fit into my morning routine and provides great insight to start my day!

Great motivation podcast

I listen to a few of these 7 min pods casts every morning whilst I’m getting ready for work. I feel like it really motivates me for the day and keeps me thinking positively. Definitely worth a try!

coconut_claire - from United Kingdom

Great show, super helpful and informative

I love starting my days by listening to this show. I’ve been listening to it every day for six months now and every episode has helped me improve and become better. It’s super inspiring and motivating. I love how every episode starts with a thought of the day and is packed with the most incredible information you could possibly get for the day. Absolutely wonderful show I highly recommend everyone listen to it. They’re truly the best seven minutes of the day.

sarael99 - from Italy

Inspiring

Great way to start the morning. Look forward to it every day.

Short & Sweet

I love getting a short boost of motivation and positivity in the morning. This podcast is the perfect length and I love the variety of speakers.

Houseoflegendspodcast - from United Kingdom

I was surprised...

I was surprised that 7 minutes of excepts of speeches could have anything new to tell me about personal development. But the value is in the curation, something that is highly undervalued. The host has a knack for picking something of value for me. My next step is choose a little 7 min job every day to do while listening ... maybe even sort out my garage ! Now THAT will be a triumph

KitKat4130 - from United Kingdom

Oprah

Absolutely love Oprah and her teachings. Thank you so much for this episode!

xywilliams - from United States of America

Must Listen

Everyone needs this podcast. No matter who you are, how old you are, or where you are in your life, these are principles that everybody needs to be reminded of and it is a perfect way to start your day off and set that positive vibe. This is easily my favorite podcast for self-development.

favourite podcasts

I could listen to this every day and I would be better for it. This has helped me a lot in areas in my life. The only negative I would say about it is 7min is not long enough.
