Podcasts: Learn To Tap Into The Power of the Mind to Create Your Great Podcasts

January 25, 2016 09:06:21 AM

Are you using Podcasts to reach and teach your audience in ways that written content can't? If not, you should be!

We share this incredible article because sometimes you just have to take the time necessary and get grounded on the development of creativity. Sometimes we get bogged down with the daily tasks and functions and become robots.

It's always been my experience that "inspiration" and a return to what makes me unique comes by accident, and always after I have hit that wall of staleness. Jason Silva's podcast reminds me that sometimes I have to tap into the creative flow that has made me unique, and successful.

The Power of the Mind to Create Your Own Reality, by Jason Silva was a refreshment, reminder of what is important, and an incredible break from the day-to-day grind I have gotten trapped into. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

From The School of Greatness, Guest Jason Silva

If you married jazz with philosophy and filmed it, you would get today’s guest on The School of Greatness.

I met Jason Silva in November on a cruise, Summit at Sea, and we instantly connected minds.

That’s probably because Jason’s mind is one of the most incredible ones on the planet and I was in awe.

I had seen his amazing YouTube videos, Shots of Awe, before and learned so much from how he explains deep philosophical ideas.

If you’ve never seen his videos, check them out right now. The craziest part is he doesn’t even script them!

Needless to say, I was very excited to interview him for the podcast and tap into his brain.

When we sat down, I asked him about the purpose of life, which led to some incredible tangents, and we dove into all kinds of questions.

I was especially fascinated by his thoughts on our relationship with technology and imagination, since his films use both of those.

I am so excited to introduce you to the philosophical artist Jason Silva in Podcast Episode 281 below...

About the BlogNetwork - Today we are successful bloggers, authors, strategists, consultants, and speakers. What does that mean, really? Essentially, we have been very successful at “being found online”, or at least, our blog posts are found online. We create quality content that resonates with our target audience. Overtime, through blood, sweat, and tears, we’ve built a massive group of friends and followers. 

Each person involved in the founding of the BlogNetwork has a unique “blogger’s story” - how we started, why we started, and how we became successful. However, we also have a few things in common. Our “blogger’s stories” are riddled with bumps and bruises, trials and errors, and fortunately, a great deal of enjoyment and success. Moreover, we all had vision and passion, at least enough to keep going through the rough spots.

The truth is that we’ve blazed the blogger’s trail and learned the hard way - we are the pioneers of the blogging world. We sure could have used some advice, coaching, and support from successful bloggers who went before us - but we were the first generation.
