I’ve been feeling pretty inspired lately and felt it was only right to spread that wealth! For today’s post, I wanted to share with you one of my absolute favorite podcasts – the Rich Roll podcast. For those who are not familiar with who Rich Roll is – let me introduce you. He graduated from Stanford and Cornell Law School. He unfortunately fell into the struggle with drugs & alcohol, among other adversities in which he overcame. He finally made the decision a few years down the road that he would change his life around. He turned vegan and began his journey in pursuing the Ultraman competition. After intense blood, sweat, and tears, he earned the 6th place title overall, among claiming individual victories & insanely fast times in the swim, bike, and marathon races. Rich Roll has become a huge health advocate and motivational speaker to people all over the world, by sharing his life experiences – the good, the bad, and the in between.
Of course my introduction does not even come close to doing justice the amount that Rich has accomplished and how he completely did a full 360 on altering his life for the better. If you want to learn more about him, he’s written a few books, among appearing on a number of blogs, articles, magazines, and more. However, I feel like I’ve truly gotten to understand him more as an individual through his weekly podcasts.
What makes his podcasts stand out more so than others? To quote him directly from his podcast introductions, “Rich Roll discusses all things wellness with some of the brightest and most forward thinking minds in health & fitness, including world-class athletes, doctors, nutritionists, trainers, entrepreneurs & artists.“ I love that his podcasts welcome a diversity of different thought-provokers and people who challenge the norm. It’s clear that Rich is a very open-minded person and you can certainly get that sense while listening to his podcasts and the people who he chooses to interview. His view on the world and how to live life to its fullest truly resonates with me and has inspired me recently to start owning the choices I make and create an enriched and fulfilled life.
So whether you’re looking for a positive pick-me-up or if you’re looking for that extra push to make a change in your life, I’d say it’s worth giving Rich Roll a listen! Here are some of my favorite podcasts from him which I think you’ll enjoy ☺
