Mitesh Vagadia from Student Support and Wellbeing will introduce several snippets from one podcast episode per week to get into discussions around personal development, and how we can focus on developing ourselves in a positive manner. He’ll also talk about things that he has found useful to learn about personal growth and useful approaches to take when thinking about the topic. You’re guaranteed to learn something new, whether it’s from someone’s experiences, outlook on life or something else!

This week, we’re listening to Episode 608 of the School of Greatness podcast, hosted by Lewis Howes. In this episode, Howes speaks to Jay Shetty, sharing his knowledge from his time as a monk. He talks about motivation and mindset, taking action and finding your purpose in the world. He also talks about serving others, and how we can build that into our lives in healthy ways.
