Motivation: Die besten Zitate aus dem Rich Roll Podcast

Lange Zeit bin ich komplett ohne Ablenkung gelaufen. Ich wollte mich nicht stören lassen von Musik, nur den Lauf genießen und mich auf mich selbst konzentrieren. Mittlerweile mache ich das anders. Ich lasse mich motivieren.

Musik, das war früher mein Leben. Dann aber verlor ich auf einem Ohr mein komplettes Hörvermögen und die Leidenschaft nahm zunehmend ab. Mono ist einfach nicht so sexy wie Stereo. Dann aber entdeckte ich Podcasts für mich – und kann mir kaum mehr lange Läufe ohne sie vorstellen.

Einer meiner Favoriten… Nein! Mein absoluter Favorit ist der Podcast von Rich Roll, kurz RRP. Rich ist ein extrem besonderer Mensch – ich durfte ihn und seine Frau 2015 persönlich kennenlernen, ihn interviewen und konnte auch mit ihm laufen. Und man spürt, dass er jemand ist, der seine Mitte gefunden hat, der sein Leben dankbar lebt und erlebt und dessen Vision es ist, anderen Menschen dabei zu helfen genau das zu erreichen. Dafür hat er besondere Gäste. Menschen, die wie er etwas Besonderes geschafft haben haben, die die Welt zum Guten verändern wollen, die einen Sinn gefunden haben, den sie aufrichtig verfolgen.

Glaubt mir: Jede Folge ist so motivierend wie nur sonst was. Hier sind einige der Zitate aus den Gesprächen mit seinen Gästen, inklusive der Links zur jeweiligen Folge. Enjoy! Peace. Plants.

P.S.: Mittlerweile wurden Rich Rolls Podcasts mehr als 15 Millionen Mal heruntergeladen. Der RRP ist damit eines der erfolgreichsten Formate der Welt. Ihr seid nicht allein…

(* 1973). Ich lebe seit Ostern 2012 vegan. Seit 2013 laufe ich nun Marathon. Zeit, etwas Neues zu probieren: Nachdem ich 2016 meinen ersten 100-km-Lauf absolviert habe, ist für April 2018 der Lauf meines Lebens geplant: die Teilnahme am Etappenlauf Marathon des Sables. In diesem Blog berichte ich über meine Vorbereitung auf diese Mutter aller Wüstenläufe.
