Can you lose your dreams?

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
Weak moments

We all have them.

But sometimes they last for much longer than a moment, months, years and even decades. Dry and barren seasons in life where our main focus becomes survival rather than thriving and chasing our long forgotten dreams.

Our dreams can seem so very far away in tough seasons, but they are still their waiting for us, walking with us, changing and maturing with us as we go.

Tough seasons will come and go but our dreams always remain , calling us to a deeper place, to a fuller expression of life.

If you are in a tough season right now, then don’t ignore your dreams, keep dreaming about them (even if it is for only 10 minutes a day).

Pressed into an unnatural shape

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
If you want to grow, you are going to have to stretch.

Stretching can be uncomfortable, especially if you have allowed yourself to be squashed into a confined space recently.

Squashing (the opposite of stretching) occurs when we allow ourselves to be boxed and labelled. Squashing occurs when we let our career choices define the way we behave. Squashing also occurs in unhealthy work environments where the full expression of who you are is not tolerated.

It is time to throw off the label and get out of the box.

Yes, it is going to feel a little uncomfortable, your whole being has been pressed into an unnatural shape BUT it is time to open up now and explore all the new space around you

When I get stuck in the mundane

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
When I get lost, or muddled in my work (yes it happens frequently), my productivity drops, I tend to jump from task to task in an ambivalent kind of way, I am still producing work, but it is not fully embodied work, it is not completely alive, it doesn’t resonate with all the zest I have inside of me… it feels flat.

Can you relate at all?

The shortcut out of this for me is simple… I need to refocus, I need to reconnect, I need to understand the big “why” behind everything that I do.

What is your big dream? What makes your life rich? What gives you direction?

Start there, right at your center and the work will take care of itself.

I’m going to be EXTREMELY SELFISH for lent: Read

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

Sometimes, to make significant changes in our lives we have to make strange, odd, bold decisions that shake the cobwebs from the rafters of our souls.

This is the exact reason why, this particular lenten season, I’ve decided to give up selflessness and be extremely selfish.

Yes, you are reading that right!

But surely selflessness is to be aspired to, surely I’ve got this the wrong way round?

NO.

Sometimes abdication of self,  the surrendering of one’s will, the servitude of others, sometimes this does not actually come from a good place,  sometimes it comes from a place of low value in self, and in others from a religiousness that is not born of grace.

So if you see me laying down some strong boundaries in the next few weeks, don’t worry it’s not about you… this time it is all me.

Mixing politics with business

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
Yesterday, I wrote a post that was inspired by a politician (Trump) who I am clearly not a big fan of, at the same time on another social media site, I asked a number of Realtors if they ever talk about politics on their social media channels.

Their answer… a resounding… NO!

I’ve also heard that blogging gurus out there strongly advise their clients to never blog about current events, in fact I upset a couple of gurus here.

What do you think?

Should politics intrude? How about religion?

Personally, I think that we should always be open to inspiration coming from any direction, it is dangerously myopic to close our eyes to the real stuff of life.

Getting Trump in only 7 Sentences

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

Attention isn’t proof.

Being popular does not equate to being right.

“History is littered with stories of leaders who took a whole swath of people on a self righteous bus trip to hell… of course the ticket they bought said “heaven” but therein lies the rub.”

You could have a whole of nation of people behind you (if you are a political leader), a massive email list or the most popular Facebook page in history and it might in the grand scheme of things mean absolutely nothing.

Being right is a far more difficult thing.

Being right is not validated by popularity, or dollars in your bank account, or the beauty of the woman on your arm… there is another way of measuring proof that #TRUMPS all of these things.

Being right, I would argue isn’t a fact at all, rather it’s a feeling, a genuine feeling of goodness, of holiness, of peace, of kindness, of satisfaction, of love… if your success or popularity leads you towards insecurity and bigotry, then I would argue that you have not achieved success at all.
