People face so many challenges in so many different phases of their lives. But often, they are either not too comfortable to share what they are feeling with their near ones, are unable to identify the solutions to their problems and sometimes don't even realize that they are facing a major challenge until confronted. Listening to podcasts can help people understand that they are not alone in dealing with similar challenges and may also get insights on how tackle issues that they are facing.
Who doesn't need motivation? Even the most successful people in the world at some point in their life have faced lack of motivation to do what they love to do or have to do.
