An example of this may look like:,
You have a podcast enthusiast who loves to listen to them, and then suddenly realizes, signs everywhere are pointing to how awesome it would be to start her own podcast. And this is not an artificially-inspired idea … she can’t stop thinking about it.. a perfect title of her podcast comes to her right away, and then she finds an amazing deal on Amazon for high quality audio equipment. It’s meant to be.
What happens next though, is typical among many people who get re-hypnotized to take direction from the “stale” external world around them. ( I say “stale”, because your existing circumstances are always a reflection of a past indulgence in feelings and actions from those feelings )
She reads blogs that talk about how much income you can make through possibly being an affiliate for some product that she can sell in commercial breaks.. or the lure of maybe getting obsessed around what major Podcast Network she can join if she produces “good enough content” for it. She’s being led by the “muggle” tail of putting too much stock into the external symbols.
However, in reality, she went from:
being more awake in her life ( by discovering the power of Deliberate Creation ),
right back to:
a more “asleep state” of letting the outside influence her internal decisions and spike false fears (of missing out)
… that excitement that grabbed her, and directed her toward starting a podcast, was originally only just there to get herself exposed for now,,,, in the world, so she was being heard ??
And what if, after just 8 episodes, there were some major audio book publishing company that heard her and loved her voice, and wanted to her to narrate books, and she ended up loving that??
Another possible way that Reality/Her Excitement may have taken her the podcast direction, was perhaps to meet someone else with that same interest she was pod-castting about, and then she teamed up with that person, in numerous and lucrative, and most importantly, joyful ways! And they co-created a web site, or co-authored books.
