Few in the self-help industry have placed a sharper focus on finding one's purpose than Jay Shetty. His podcast, On Purpose with Jay Shetty, indeed "makes wisdom go viral" with its entertaining and relatable guests and topics. Be it finding purpose at work, in love, in service, or in any other context, On Purpose empowers its audience to "listen, learn, and grow."
Shetty wrote a book called Think Like a Monk, and his podcast often recommends "the monk mindset." How does he know so much about monks? He spent four summers training with Hare Krishnas, and then spent three years living as a monk in India. As the story goes, Shetty was a typical business student when he sat in on a talk given by a visiting monk at his school. What he learned about selflessness and self-awareness that day changed his life.
Now On Purpose is one of the biggest health podcasts in the world. The show has won a Shorty Award and multiple Streamy Awards. Shetty's social media presence boasts tens of millions of followers. His YouTube channel earns billions of views. And Shetty himself was a Forbes "30 Under 30" list member and a National Geographic Chasing Genius Council honoree.
Shetty's much more than a podcast host, too. Followers can find a life coach on his website, or receive coaching to become a coach themselves. Two million students have taken his courses on success, habits, and, of course, purpose. Shetty hosts daily guided meditations on the Calm app called the Daily Jay. And he's even founded an adaptogenic tea company with his wife.
But helping people "live life on purpose" starts with the podcast. As Shetty explains, the show "can't make your problems disappear, but I can give you the tools to overcome them."
