Grasp it, take ahold of it, make this freedom yours.

Nothing disqualifies you.

Just because you feel stuck, doesn’t mean you are stuck.

Success does not depend on others, your success really only depends only upon one thing — you becoming fully alive to who you are.

Playing small, hiding your light under a rock, that doesn’t help anybody (Tweet).

You owe it to others who have gone before you, those brave souls who gave their lives to fight against injustice and inequality so that you might have the kind of freedom that is right within your grasp.

Grasp it, take ahold of it, make this freedom yours.

Your life is simply a series of choices, keep making positive choices, keep saying “no” to hiding in the darkness and soon a great light will permeate your soul.

The Internet was made for introverts

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

 
 
I often wish I was an introvert.

I often wish that I had the God given ability to keep my mouth shut, to watch the world, to form my opinions and share them only when I was ready.

If you are introvert then I believe that the Internet is tailor-made for a person like you. Think about it, it is easy to listen online, you can take your time forming your own opinions in the comfort of your own living room and you can SHARE your thoughts only when you wish.

My favorite clients are often introverts, there is a depth there, a commentary that has been going on for a long time inside of you, which is both deeply insightful and very inspiring.

Of course being introverted is not the same as hiding and is not an excuse to remain comfortable in the ways that you express yourself, so don’t use it as such. Instead, use it as a place to bravely share the unique insights that you been given with the rest of us.

You could have all this and still be utterly unremarkable.

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

 
 
It is not enough to be big in social media, it is not enough to be connected to millions, it is not enough to have a massively well read blog.

You could have all this and still be utterly unremarkable.

I want more for you than numbers and words — I want you to have a legacy that matters.

In the west, everything we do tends to be about the transaction, you exchange an agreed amount of money for a product or a service.

One of the biggest tragedies of our time is that we have made our relationships transactional too — I give you this and you give me that.

If we want do something that matters then we are going to have to step outside the transactional mindset, we are going to have to obliterate the box of expectation in which we are all operating.

Doing remarkable work is about overwhelming exceeding the expectations of others, it is about being more real, more present, more alive and more accessible than others would believe possible.

Your legacy depends on this

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

 
 
When I write every blog post, I choose one person in my life and I write a post specifically for him or her. I do this because every form of human communication is underneath the surface, primarily about connection and unless we are specific about who we are trying to connect with… we will by default connect with no one.

So today, I am writing this blog post just for you.

I ask myself what is that you deeply need? What do I personally have to give you? And what I’ve come up with is this…

Friend, you are made of many strands, you have many different passions, gifts and interests, it is time to wind all these strands together into one powerful thread — it is time to give the world the very best of what you have.

Don’t Be Cool

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

 
 
Being cool is overrated.

To the vast, uncool majority on planet earth, “Cool” tends to mean aloof, disconnected, exclusive or superior. Cool might work for Apple, but in general being cool has a pretty short shelf life, after-all there is nothing more offensive than a 60 year-old acting like a hipster.

What is better than being cool?

How about being real, being genuine, how about having depth?

It’s time to get rid of the image-centric words in our branding (and our lives). It’s time we started creating action-centric, heart altering brands that embrace transparency, that love vulnerability, that exist solely to bring every aspect of humanity together.

Introducing the Old Geoff Talbot

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

 
 
It is easy to lose touch with your dreams.

Life, family responsibilities, sickness, failure, rejection all these things can function like cataracts, clouding our vision, stealing the hope from our dreams.

What we once thought of as our destiny, start to feel far away, out of reach, impossible even.

As a new father, I feel as though I’ve had to lay aside many of my dreams to build a business that will provide for my family, as a result for a couple of years now I’ve felt somewhat disconnected from my dreams.

Perhaps you relate, perhaps you have dreams that are long forgotten.

The good news is our dreams never leave us, instead they patiently linger (Tweet), and as they linger, they mature and we get to mature with them

Don’t forget nothing is impossible, remember your dreams today, there is still time.

Quit blogging with your brain and begin listening to your heart.

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

 
 
Let’s get emotional.

Perhaps one of the reasons that your business blog is NOT being read as often as you like is because it is being written by your brain without the involvement of your heart.

Information for the most part is boring, every piece of content that you create needs to have some kind of emotional hook.

For example, imagine that you are sitting in a cafe and you overhear two scientists having an intellectual debate about the value of fluoride in drinking water– they are just talking facts, statistics and figures — however, chances are these two scientists are not going to keep your attention for very long.

Until…one of them shouts… “yes, but my nephew DIED because like you, the authorities REFUSED to listen to these facts that are plainly right in front of you now!”

Suddenly, this intellectual debate has become personal, it has become emotional, it has become human, and as the debate increases in intensity you would find yourself listening to every word.

Quit blogging only with your brain and begin listening to your heart.
