Reviews & Testimonials

Here’s what people are saying about the “Life Is A Marathon” podcast:

A shining light

★★★★★ in Apple Podcasts by Sandra B, UK from UK on February 10, 2018

I will be forever grateful for being guided by the universe to this podcast. Bruce truly radiates his love and encouragement throughout the world. It has helped me through difficult circumstances requiring endurance, and has enabled me to feel connected and be much more positive. Bruce’s concern is with spirituality rather than any specific religion, which is just perfect for an atheist too. You’re doing wonderful work, Bruce. Keep it going, and thank you so much!

Keep on rockin’ bro!

Sometimes I can be a huge procrastinator. Case in point – I wanted to write a review for Bruce’s podcast two years ago! Today I’m getting ‘er done! I think what i like best about the show is Bruce’s authenticity and kindness. The lack of pretention also goes a long way. Don’t know about you, but i’m not blessed with optimism every single day. Sometimes i get low and my thoughts wallow in the bottom of the ocean. Bruce is nothing less than a shining bright light with sparks of hope and wisdom. Do I listen to him every single week? The answer would be no. Like all the podcasters I listen to, I take breaks. Yet I always come back to Bruce and I’m never dissapointed. In regards to listeners taking offense when he signs off with the words I Love You, please keep in mind, for some folks it’s the only time they get to hear it. Thank you Bruce for your consistent great work. Anyone who makes the effort to go outside and run is certainly aces in my book!

Just What I Needed

★★★★★ in Apple Podcasts by RichardNeil from USA on December 26, 2017

I was looking for the ideal podcast episode to listen to on Christmas Eve and I found it in ‘What’s your Christmas Story?’ It resonated with me so much that I listened to it again on Christmas Day. Thanks, Bruce, for an excellent take on the meaning of Christmas not only for Christians but for people of all faiths. You helped me look forward to 2018 with a bit more faith and enthusiasm.

New Beginning

Bruce, wow first of all thank you! I have recently started my own journey into a more positive outlook on life. I suffered a severe amount of trauma as a child and young adult that was never addressed and really was suppressed for most of my life post trauma. I began weekly counseling and started to unearth the causes of my own negative outlook on the world and why I view it the way I do.. I began searching for ways to look for happiness in each day and see the world in a more positive lighting. I was new to the podcast world but tried probably about 10 before finding yours. I could listen to while I walk on my lunch and breaks at work. I’m still back in 2014 trying to catch up to current but I’m loving everything so far! I’ve jotted down quotes and things I’ve heard in your podcast that really apply to me or that I want to discuss in my next session with my therapist. Thank you for helping to remind me that even those of us who shut the world out can let light shine in through our cracks and breaks to find happiness again! Katie

So grateful my friend told me about this podcast!

A friend of mine recently recommended Bruce’s podcast to me, and it’s already one of my favorite podcasts! I’ve only been listening to it for a couple of weeks so far, and already I have a much better outlook on life now. Bruce really knows his stuff in terms of spiritual principles and how life works, and he also offers specific, practical things you can start doing immediately to improve your life.

Training your mind and spirit

Bruce Van Horn gives incredible insight into the world of growing mindfulness and raising consciousness in the human spirit. LIAM also provides a unique perspective on how to treat everyday actions, thoughts, and habits. Great listen, EVERY episode. Thanks for all your hard work, Bruce!

“I Love You”

rss feed in Apple Podcasts by Cbharper1 from USA on August 25, 2017

I want to thank you Bruce for helping to show me how to recognize who I am. How to tap into my self awareness and achieve all things within my imagination. You are a truly humble human being with a love for yourself and those around you. Living on the road like I do can be very overwhelming but hearing Bruce’s story and his continuous dedication to love is so very inspiring. I am a “millennial” and have had to step back and change the way I view the world and myself and the people around me. So Bruce, thank you, thank you for helping me see the light in myself and the light in others… love YOU too and I’m proud of you.

One of the best podcasts available for you especially if you are having some doubts on your direction in life or even in general it is very insightful. Above all if you drop a line to Bruce he replies… how good is that. Some episodes are not so good (sorry Bruce have to be honest) but as Bruce says you life is yours skip but don’t unsubscribe there is always some pearls of knowledge coming through. Thank you Bruce you have helped me ????

Inspirational, Motivational Podcast

I have binge listened to over 300 Life is a Marathon Podcasts in the past 3 months. Bruce Van Horn coaches you to know that you already have everything you need inside you to be successful. I am working on realizing the full potential of my life. I am also retraining my brain to focus more on the positive. I highly recommend this podcast and have recommended it to my friends and family as well.

This is Exactly what I was looking for!!!

I accidentally came across this channel and I am so glad that I did. I got a new phone and it came with the podcast app. So one day I was just checking out the app and discover this amazing podcast. I am 22 years old where I am figuring out what I want to do with my life. I couldn’t see how I could achieve my dream and the steps I need to take. I am so glad I found a mentor like Bruce. Bruce doesn’t talk about the steps by steps to success. He explains the how to have the right kind of mindset to be successful. I love the way he talks. He pronounce every syllable and talk at a very steady pace, so when I play at x1.5 or x2 speed, his voice is still very clear and understandable. THANK YOU SO MUCH BRUCE! For sharing your knowledge, experience, and wisdom.

A Loving, Caring, Uplifting Friend

I don’t know Bruce personally, but as I’ve listened to many of his podcasts, he has become a friend to me. His messages are very uplifting and inspiring. They make me feel hopeful and can change my mindset for the day, and my outlook for the future. He has a very calming voice that is comforting when I feel stressed. And so importantly, his messages are very applicable to my life. Thank you for what you are doing, Bruce. You really make a difference!

Bruce. Thank you. Two months ago, I was searching for a podcast to help me affirm myself, and help me be a better parent and person. I have listened to your podcast every morning since then.

Bruce changed my life!

I struggled with postpartum depression, health anxiety, panic attacks, and agoraphobia for years, but I refused to take medications. I found antidepressant meds the LIAM podcast while searching for natural ways to cure depression and anxiety. I’m happy that God lead me to Bruce’s podcasts because they helped me in the journey to living without depression! I can’t express how thankful I am for Bruce! My life is completely different now and I am constantly growing as a person. If I go a day without listening to LIAM, I really notice it in my energy for that day. Some days I listen to 3 or 4 of his podcasts in a row and I just feel so alive!!! Bruce is really helping shape me into a better person and living a truly joyful life! Thank you Bruce!

A big KIITOS from Finland

rss feed in iTunes by Marathoner from Finland from USA on February 15, 2016

A big KIITOS from Finland! Hi Bruce, A big kiitos (that´s thanks in Finnish) from Finland, I just love your show! I listen to it every time I run, training for my marathons (both running and life :-)) and it has helped me tremendously. I just love the way you explain the issues and what one can concretely do to change one´s thinking and attitude. I noticed changes in myself immediately when I started listening to you, you have given me tools to see things in a different way, to take responsibility for my own wellbeing and becoming a better Lasse. That way I have become a better husband, a better colleague and just better in everything. Just to name one, I love for instance the emergenc/y idea and I am impressed how it really works in practice. Great stuff! I hope to see you here in Finland one day! Kiitos, Lasse

“Life is a marathon” is the first podcast I’ve ever listened to and I’m completely hooked! I listen to Bruce every morning on my way to work. He is such a kind, generous and inspiring person. If you’re going though a tough time in your life or even if you’re the happiest you’ve ever been, this podcast will give you the tools to make you the best version of yourself. You know you want to get there but you don’t know exactly how, so this is for you! Through his words and wisdom you will find inner peace and tremendous growth. In the first episode Bruce says: “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear…” That was my AHA MOMENT !!! I believe that things happen for a reason and Bruce came into my life at the right time. I’m grateful to have found my mentor. Thank you for being a gift to the world Bruce, you’re amazing! I hope we will meet one day 😀

A Must For 2016!!

rss feed in iTunes by My horse88 from UK on December 30, 2015

I’ve been listening to this podcast for over a month now, I’ve even gone back over certain podcasts and listened again!! I feel I can connect to Bruce when he talks, because he’s a guy who’s been through trouble in his life, picked himself up, and pushed through the difficulties to get to where he is today. His advice and tips are all based on his own experiences, and as you listen, and read more about him, you will know he has made a huge success of himself. Life is a Marathon is an easy to digest, warm and positive podcast, that really does leave you wanting to hear more. If you’re just wanting pick yourself up a little or looking to completely transform your life, Bruce offers so much in his Podcast and his Books. Enjoy

Thank you universe for bringing Bruce into my life!

I’m a big believer (and so is Bruce) in sending out intentions to the universe for the things I want. So this summer I started listening to podcasts. I tried a bunch of different ones people had recommended me, looking for motivation, positivity, and love (all things I adore to listen about), but want finding one right for me. Then one wonderful day, I stumbled on “Life is a Marathon” and found the perfect podcast! Bruce is so amazing, and kind- and the positivity he radiates is contagious. I swear sometimes he is talking to just me! He is dead-on with his knowledge on positive self talk, how to create change, and also has great additional speakers come on the show. I feel myself growing as I listen. And lately any time I feel grumpy or lonely or in a slump for some reason, I turn on a “Life is a Marathon” podcast and feel instantly better! I am now not only catching up with all his podcasts, but also follow him on Facebook, recommend him to everyone I know, and also got his book yesterday “Worry No More” (thanks Bruce!) I’m a huge fan! Bruce- I absolutely adore you and am going to send you an email sometime as well! 🙂 I think the positive energy you are putting out into the world is so wonderful, you are truly a good person, and making the world a better place. I’m sending love to you every day! Bruce, you rock!
