You are NOT the problem

Written By Geoff Talbot - Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog. 

 
 
When things are not going well with our careers or our businesses it is easy to look outward and blame “external factors” for our lack of success.

Of course, laying the blame never solves the problem, we are simply avoiding responsibility and choosing to become victims to circumstance and other peoples choices.

When we blame we shrink, we atrophy, we become passengers in the vehicle of our lives, allowing someone else to drive us to a place that is not of our choosing.

If we want to change our businesses, then we must first prioritize personal growth (Tweet).

There is a tendency to think of ourselves as the problem, but even here you are still blaming — a person is never the problem, you are a human being full of untapped potential and limitless possibilities.

Therefore the real problem is that you have become fixated on finding problems, rather than powerfully activating your God given right to make powerful choices as a human being in any situation.

All that needs to change is your mindset — moving it from being problem-orientated to being solution-focussed.

He lives in a dark room

Written By Geoff Talbot - Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog. 

 
 
The Internet is no place to hide and it’s certainly no place to pretend.

It is easy to sit behind a screen, in a dark little room and count your followers or fans.

It is easy to deceive yourself into thinking than online numbers will by necessity translate into business success; nothing could be further than the truth.

Very few people have a strategic approach that leverages the Internet in a manner that builds actual, real life business relationships.

The truth is time wrongly spent on social media could actually harm your business, you must honestly ask yourself the following question…

“How many clients or customers have I met through social media in the past 12-months?”

If your answer is less than 3, then you should contact me for a free conversation here.

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you are not artistic

Written By Geoff Talbot - Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog. 

 
 
Do you ever feel like you are not creative?

Apparently 50% of the population feel this way but I don’t think that it is true.

I think every single person on the face of planet earth is an artist in some way, shape or form.

The problem lies in how we have subconsciously defined art — we tend to think of it in terms of music, fine art, abstract art, storytelling, poetry or performance art.

But art is so much more than any of this.

Anything you do with great passion, anything you give yourself wholly too, anytime you act or move in a way in a way that involves any kind of creative solution — when you do any of this, you are being artistic.

The more artistic you are the more alive you become, don’t let anyone ever tell you that you are not artistic.

The Importance of Inspiration

Written By Geoff Talbot - Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog. 

 
 
To do hard work you need both determination and courage. To do really great work you need a healthy dose of inspiration.

To consistently produce really great work you need to walk hand in hand with inspiration on a daily basis. It takes courage to do this.

If you don’t fill the gas tank of your car up every 300+ miles eventually you will run out of juice, it is the same with inspiration.

You can’t muscle inspiration, you can’t do great work by simply trying harder, you have to put the right fuel in your tank.

What are you doing to remain continually inspired?

How to be irresistible

Written By Geoff Talbot - Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog. 

 
 
People can spend a lot money trying to become more “magnetic” and “irresistible.”

The craziest thing is, everything they need to know they could actually learn from my 2.5 year-old son — he is an master in magnetism, in fact most children are.

It is very difficult not to smile when a small child laughs, and it is super hard to resist when they call out “let’s play Daddy.”

He is difficult to resist because he is pure, because he is without guile, because he is unafraid to ask and because he puts the relational aspect of the task first.

What if our brands expressed themselves this way online?

Have we become so complex and so ambitious that we’ve created stumbling blocks between ourselves and others?

Is it time to fall in love with the joy of being once again?

She is your addiction

Written By Geoff Talbot - Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog. 

 
 
Will you ever rest?

Can you feel the anxiety rumbling inside of you, it keeps you moving, you know you should stop for a while but you can’t…

Your fear detests the pallor of stillness and your greed rails against the promise of an empty plate (Tweet).

Your relationship with your work is jacked up. You simply just cannot keep giving more and more of your life to this cruel wench called “work”; newsflash, aside from that pay check she isn’t giving you any love back amigo.

If your “life partner” treated you this way, you would have left her a long time ago — but your work she is your addiction.

Take a rest this weekend, stay off social media, go to the beach, climb a mountain, throw a ball to your son and fall in love with wonder of living again.

The Curse Of Good Intentions

Written By Geoff Talbot - Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog. 

 
 
I know you have good intentions.

You want to change things, you have earth shatteringly wonderful ideas, you can see clearly the pathway forward that you or your organization should take — but instead you do nothing.

Be warned good intentions will not remain forever, like fresh bread they grow stale in the long grass, weeds grow over them, birds peck at them breaking them apart, slowly those good intentions rot into the soil from which they came.

When good intentions are not actively fought for, when the intention never becomes your direction, all that is left behind is cynicism and the sad unseen realty of what might have been.

Don’t lie down with good intentions, wake up with them instead.

When you DON’T fight for what you know is right, you become smaller, you become less important, you shrink and the hope that you had for “living a powerful and significant life” rots into the soil.

Good intentions require brave actions, it’s time for you to speak up! (Tweet!)
