Podcast Review: On Purpose with Jay Shetty

If you’re like me, you’ve been around the block a few times with self-help audiobooks, seminars, workshops, and probably even podcasts. As marketers and business developers, we are constantly looking for new ways to connect with each other to build meaningful, and hopefully profitable, relationships. Many of you have probably seen, or at the very least heard, the name Jay Shetty.

One unique experience that sets life-coach Shetty apart from other well-known personal development leaders, like Tony Robbins, Brené Brown, and Stephen Covey, are the three years he spent as a monk in Mumbai, India. This plays a huge part in how he views life, provides guided meditations, and adds value to his advice on how to live a life that is truly satisfying. 

Recently, I discovered his newest venture, On Purpose with Jay Shetty, a podcast that focuses on everything from how to gain financial stability and reach your goals, to having a better understanding of yourself and positively building the relationships in your life. He interviews authors and celebrities like Charles Duhigg, Alicia Keys, Kobe Bryant, and Matthew McConaughey. They discuss varying thoughts and ideas on meditation and spirituality, developing and improving your growth mindset, how to remain calm in high-stress situations, and even “How to Instantly Read People, Create Connections and Influence People”.

Below are a few of my favorite episodes so far, accompanied by my key takeaways for each, however, I have barely scratched the surface of what this podcast has to offer. 

Top 3 Favorite Episodes & Key Takeaways: 

  1. 3 Techniques to Switch from Overthinking to Thinking Effectively & 4 Ways to Turn That Into Action / Key Takeaway: I find myself struggling to make decisions because I am constantly overthinking, from the simplest things like what to wear to a networking event to more impactful, yet time-sensitive decisions, like how to start making positive changes in our company culture. This episode is not only relatable for fellow overthinkers but provides actionable items that are simple and easy to implement to take time and indecision and turn it into action!
  2. 7 Questions You Must Ask to Deepen Any Relationship, Friendship or Partnership / Key Takeaway: In our role in this industry, much of our job is based on our ability to not only create and maintain but also nurture relationships. We often discuss ways in which we can do this on a personal and professional level. In this episode, Shetty provides a list of questions that you can ask your partner, your peers, and even your BD connections. The answers to these seven questions provide insights into how you can improve based on the answer to questions like “What can I do less of?” and yet, another question that should be asked is “What should I do more of?”, easily providing the chance for positive feedback on an action you didn’t even realize was helpful. In return, asking these questions of your peers and/or partner, should open a line of communication so you too have the chance to give your feedback and discuss things that the other person might not be aware of.
  3. 4 Steps to Develop a Growth Mindset & 4 Ways to Stop Listening to the Opinions of Others with Russel Brand / Key Takeaway: Now more than ever, it’s very difficult to hear our own thoughts over all of the opinions and suggestions of everyone around us. I am a great example of a “work-in-progress” when it comes to turning down the volume of everyone else and living by my own values. One of the quotes Shetty and Brand discuss that truly sums up the focus of this episode is by Charles Cooley, “Today I’m not what I think I am, I’m not what you think I am, I am what I think you think, I am.”

In summary, if you’re looking to improve yourself, the relationships you either want to build or already have in your life, your financial situation, or just want to learn about habits that support the lifestyle you want, I highly recommend listening to On Purpose with Jay Shetty. This podcast offers so much wisdom in every aspect that there is something for everyone, and it can be found on any platform where you get your podcasts. 

As Jay Shetty says – Live life today On Purpose!
