7 Simple Steps That Will Guarantee Your Success In 2015: (Tweet)

 

Take Massive Action - Theorizing usually results in more theory, only action produces results; taking massive action is about doing the “one thing” that will yield the biggest possible result… hint: it’s usually the thing that we’re most afraid of!

Don’t Separate Or Compartmentalize Your Business – The biggest gift you can give your business is your creativity, your passion and your care for others, stop separating business and pleasure and your life will be both more productive and enjoyable.

Set Goals And Work Backwards - Take the time right now to set your goals for the end of 2015 and then work backwards to create a pathway forwards from where you are right now; you will be amazed at where good planning will take you.

Involve Others In Everything You Do - Your time and your energy are finite, if you want to grow then you must leverage the hours and the passion of others; life is better with company anyway.

When You Think You Are Going Slow – Go Slower - It’s tempting to race out of the blocks and just bust right through any obstacles that are in our way; BUT problems and obstacles are a critical part of our journey AND they are put in place to train and prepare us for what is ahead  — go slow and learn from them.

Measure Your Wealth In Terms Of Relationship - Don’t get sidetracked by the financial picture, are you adding value AND are you building relationships? — the profits will follow.

Remember The Problem Always Begins And Ends With You – If you want to change your circumstances then you have to change yourself; we all have points of resistance, places of self-sabotage where we act incorrectly or fail to take action; make sure your “business plan” includes a strategy to overcome your own shortcomings.

Your Friday Night Nudge

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

 
 
Certain people see things differently. Are you one of these people? (Tweet)

We cannot predict who these people are, you could be a housewife, a senior citizen, a regular single white male OR a person who has been incarcerated for a very long time…

It is also possible that no one around you is actually aware of the very unique way in which you see the world.

But if your reading this blog post and the back of your neck is tingling then you know that this Friday Night Nudge has been written just for you.

2014 is almost over and I urge you friend to remain quiet no longer, I strongly urge you to FINALLY COME OUT of the shadows of your own doubt, I urge you to open your mouth and to let those golden words of yours come tumbling out.

Do not be afraid of the mess, the conflict, or the disruption that is going to erupt around you when you finally speak, for the pale, stagnant, superficial equilibrium of “normality” that sits so languidly upon the surface of such ill water needs to be washed away… its time.

Are you lying down in the middle of the road?

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

 
 
Obvious fact: You are most likely to get run over an automobile if you are in the habit of lying down in the middle of the road.

The middle of the road is a very dangerous place to be.

Yet in life and in the way that we express ourselves online, many of us have a tendency to congregate in the middle of the road. We play it safe, we soften our voices, we appease other people, we weaken the strength of our opinions — we refuse to do the deep and difficult work of continually asking ourselves some very uncomfortable questions.

Bizarrely enough sometimes we call this process of playing safe “editing”, we look at what we’ve written or what we truly want to say AND we examine it from multiple perspectives, we question whether it is too offensive, whether it is silly, excessively political, extra spiritual or too whatever…

And so we pull back from the edge of greatness and instead we choose to lie down in the middle of a busy road packed full of other ordinary voices.

Stop it, it’s time to push forward and not pull back, it’s time to grab ahold of the truth that has been given to you and start shouting it out with the full power of your God given voice!

I hate to shock you, but you’re living a half-assed life

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

 
 
Remaining safe in our friendships is a particularly dangerous thing to do, as 2014 draws to a close perhaps you’d like to join me in taking a friendship audit?
 

Your Friendship Audit:

  • How many of your friends have different colored skin?
  • How many speak another language?
  • How many have a different sexual orientation?
  • How many of your friends are from a completely different income group?

 
The hard truth is that we do not grow very much at all when we gather together with people who all look, think and experience the world in a similar way.

And for the record friendship, real friendship is NOT about being kind to someone different who works for you or serves you, it’s about a mutual acceptance, shared experiences and 100% respect.
 
P.S: Tweet the friendship audit to your friends here (Tweet).

 
 

The World Changing Power Of Friendship

This is your real enemy

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

 
Pardon the warfare analogy but new territory is usually already occupied. Likewise new ground nearly always requires a conquering force before the people can safely settle there.

In our personal lives, if we want to extend our territory, if we want to expand who we are and have a greater impact on the world around us, then we are going to have to conquer the forces that already live there.

The greatest foe we will ever encounter in our lives is our own fear (Tweet).

It’s may seem like an oxymoron, but I would encourage you NOT to be afraid of your own fear in 2015.

Fear is by it’s very nature cowardly, run towards it boldly and it will shrink away into oblivion.

It’s time to get uncomfortable with the limitations that you’ve imposed upon yourself, it’s time to throw off that disquieting claustrophobic feeling that you’ve worn like a comfortable old bathrobe for far too long — our world is waiting for you.

You have so much to offer.

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

 
 
If you want more in 2015, you are going to have give more.

What are you going to give, how are you going to invest, where are you going to invest?

Our victim (we all have one) ignores the concept of investment because he or she is convinced that what they have to offer the world is either inadequate or insignificant.

This is of course a grand lie spun in a web by the Master of Deception.

If you have a heartbeat, then you are valuable beyond measure – believe it! (Tweet).

Anyway, it is the small seemingly insignificant things that change our world through the breaking down of the barriers that separate one person from another.

Invests smiles, hugs, kind words or a listening ear on a continual basis in 2015 and watch your world expand one person at a time (Tweet).

How to Make Failure Your Teacher In 2015

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

 
 
As we discussed in yesterday’s post, embracing failure is vital if you wish to grow.

Failure will crush you if you let it become your master, but she will serve you if you invite her to become your teacher (Tweet).

  • Do you seek to learn from your mistakes?
  • Do you look to learn from the mistakes of others?
  • Do you avoid making mistakes at all costs or are you secure in the knowledge that you can handle the consequences of any mistakes that you may make?
  • Do you forgive yourself when you fail or do you flail your soul with unhealthy self talk?

What’s the best mistake that you ever made and how did it shape who you are today?
