If you're like most people, you've probably thought about launching a podcast at some point in your life. But as you may have also discovered, it's not easy to turn that dream into reality. Launching a podcast requires discipline, focus, and most importantly, commitment. The question is, are you interested in creating a podcast, or are you committed to making it happen?
We have all had moments in our lives where we set a goal, become interested in achieving it, start taking steps towards it- and then something happens. Our initial burst of motivation and energy fizzles out, and we find ourselves back at square one. It's not that we don't want the thing we set out to achieve, we are just no longer interested. The question is, what separates those who achieve their goals from those who don't? Is it a lack of interest, or is it a lack of commitment?
When it comes to launching a podcast, the difference between those who succeed and those who don't is often a matter of commitment. Are you committed to getting the additional freedom a podcast will give you, being in an elite group of podcasters, and getting recognized and standing out? Or are you simply interested in the idea of launching a podcast? The truth is, anyone can be interested in their own podcast. But it takes commitment to actually sit down and do the work required to bring your podcast into the world.
So ask yourself- are you simply interested in launching a podcast, or are you committed to making your dream of becoming a podcaster a reality? The answer may just determine whether or not you ever see your podcast live.
