There are a number of daily habits that promote my productivity, especially my morning habits. Meditation, fitness, and reading are great tools to get me moving each day. However, there is one other tool I use to get myself motivated. YouTube! I’m dead serious. These seven YouTube channels have been so helpful in motivating my personal growth. I learn something new every single day.
I was recently asked about what Podcasts I listen to for inspiration, but I didn’t have many. Honestly, I just use YouTube for my inspo. Luckily for you podcast fans out there, a lot of the name I mention below have podcasts versions too.
While I list a few of my favorite episodes from each show, I would explore them for yourself. The channels below offer a lot of diversity and there is something for everyone.
Let’s Get Motivated!
Become the Happiest Person You Know
Gabby Bernstein is one of my favorite spiritual teachers of all time. She is well known for leading the term “Spirit Junkie” with her amazing books that teach spiritual principals in a very modern way. Her YouTube Channel is the perfect place to receive 5-minute quick reminders on ways to incorporate things like meditation and love into our daily lives.
- The Secrets to Confidence
- Attract What You Want By Appreciating What You Have
- How to Be a High Vibe Friend
Create a Business and Life You Love
Where Gabby leads me spiritually, Marie is my go-to for developing my business. However, Marie is far from business only. Her YouTube Channel is incredible for any woman (or man) looking to find more confidence, be more productive, and create stronger relationships with those around you. Her interview guests include rock stars like Tim Ferriss, Brendon Burchard, and Brene Brown. Plus, she’s funny!
Some of my faves:
- How to Motivate Yourself to Start Right Now
- Brené Brown Shows You How To “Brave the Wilderness”
- The Ultimate Guide To Saying ‘No’
The School of Greatness
Lewis Howes is an American author, entrepreneur, and former professional Arena League football player. His YouTube Channel is all about learning from other successful people to find greatness in our lives. He interviews power houses, such as Kobe Bryant and Jay Shetty, and has a variety of his own talks. Some of his videos chat about issues such as, building a personal brand, mindset hacks, and defining your own version of success.

Tom Bilyeu is an incredibly successful entrepreneur who is now using his knowledge and connections to spread motivation. He believes that human potential is nearly limitless and that’s what he promotes in every episode. On his YouTube Channel, he does quick voice over motivation videos that get me really pumped up in the morning. He also interviews other amazing thinkers, like Jesse Itzler and Seth Godin.

Tim Ferriss is a best-selling author of 4-Hour Work Week, 4-Hour Body, Tools of Titans, and many more. He has been called “the Oprah of audio” due to the influence of The Tim Ferriss Show podcast. I enjoy his interviews with business giants, such as Jocko Willick and Arianna Huffington. He chats about a wide variety of topics from his favorite gifts under $100 to his tips for success.
Some episodes for you:
- How The Best Overcome Fear
- How Top Performers Start Their Mornings
- Tim Ferriss’s advice on starting a business or podcast
Of course I am going to tell you to check out Oprah’s YouTube Channel! While the channel has a variety of different series, my favorite is the Super Soul Sessions. This is a magical place to get inspiration from the Queen herself or from her entourage of other spiritual leaders. Her group is impressive, including Gabby, Marie, Glennon Doyle Melton, Echkart Tolle, Kris Carr, and so many more!

Wanderlust is an amazing company that works its magic through events, centers, and media around the world. Their events are designed to bring key speakers to enlighten the masses through yoga, mindfulness training, and love. Their YouTube Channel shares a number of the talks that are given at their events, so you can get the benefit of knowledge even if you can’t attend in person. Plus, they have a TON of quick info on yoga.
