YOU matter because you are YOU

YOU.

You MATTER.

You matter because you are HUMAN.

You matter because you are human, because you are made of FLESH and BLOOD.

You matter because you are human, because you are made of flesh and blood and NOT because of any work you do or success that you have.

You matter because you are human, because you are made of flesh and NOT because of any work you do or success that you have; no failure, no screw up, no crime can ever discount you.

You matter because you are human, because you are made of flesh and blood and NOT because of any work you do or success that you have, no failure, no screw up, no crime can ever discount you… you matter because you are YOU (Tweet).

A NOT-SO-PRIVATE letter to my son

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

 
 
Dear Son,

Today, I write this blog post specifically to you.

I write to you because I spend so much time writing about so much other stuff on this blog, but when it all comes down to nothing — nothing else matters like the love I have for you.

You may not know it but YOU are the measuring stick of my life my little friend. For I could gain the whole world, but if I lost your respect and your affection in doing so, the world that I gained would in fact be utterly useless.

While my work is important, it is not an end to itself, for wealth without affection would only transform me into a pig wearing diamonds.

I am reminded that nothing else other than the relationships we have with those we love truly matters (Tweet).

You are one of my closest friends, thank you for helping me want to be a better man.

Love
Dad

Your son maybe your greatest teacher

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

 
 
Who is your teacher?

We often think about “influence” as a top down ideal… we look for mentors who are further on, people who have experienced the kind of life we wish to have.

Life of course is far from linear… we don’t simply grow, we also regress and decay.

This is why we can learn so much from children, this is why our nearly 3-year-old son is truly my primary mentor.

He is far ahead of me in terms of vulnerability, honesty, openheartedness towards strangers and that beautiful childlike quality called Joy.

Of all the people in my life no one teaches me more than my little son (Tweet).

More than anything though, my young son reminds me that I can learn from anyone at anytime regardless of their social stature… I don’t need a college degree, I simply need to be open.

I knew a man who chose “comfort” as his lover

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

 
 
It is important to build security.

Just as a base jumper needs a solid rock from which to leap, so the entrepreneurial soul often needs a secure financial base from which they can launch their dreams.

But the desire for security can easily become a crutch, a solid place where you may view the world and pass comment without feeling the rush of getting involved and truly living.

Nothing kills “life” like the love of comfort (Tweet).

Comfort has a way of making her your lover, without you ever consciously choosing to lie down in her bed.

Although immediately satisfying “Comfort” is a controlling kind of lover, who may never allow you to leave the comfort of her lair.

The paradox of Comfort is that she is anything but comfortable, like an overly soft couch when you sink into Comfort she will envelop you and you may never find your feet again; she is in fact a suffocating foe, claustrophobia is her middle name — leap away from Comfort at the first opportunity.

Are You Following Someone Else’s Road Map?

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

 
 
You want more from your life but you feel you are stuck in a rut, caught between the expectations of others and your own unexplored desires.

Someone gave you a roadmap to follow, but it’s not your map and you are walking on a path that you were not designed to walk.

Whose roadmap are using? In whose footsteps are you following?

Are you seeking after the things that you actually want OR are you setting goals based upon parental or societal expectations?

Maybe you need to burn the map that you’ve been holding, perhaps you need to go back to the beginning and start again?

The pathways that you are destined to walk are wound into your DNA, only you can find them, only you have the map (Tweet).

Don’t remain silent – You have too much to give

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

 
 

  • Don’t underestimate the power of your voice.
  • Don’t underestimate the uniqueness of your point of view.
  • Refuse to let your insecurity stop you from giving us the best of what you have.

No one else can play your role, no one else can walk in your shoes, no one else sees things the way that you do.

When you remain silent we all shrink in stature BUT when you lend the world your voice we all grow in knowledge and understanding.

You have so much to give, so much to say, so much that could be of service.

Do not remain silent and lie down with regret, instead give us the best of what you have (Tweet).

Is it time to stop humming “yesterday?”

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

 
 
Is yesterday stealing your attention away from today?

If you find yourself constantly telling stories about how good it was in the past, then the answer to this question is mostly likely “yes.”

Yesterday is like an old lover, as long as her image remains engrained in the front of your mind, it will be very difficult for you to live fully today.

When nostalgia becomes your primary form of comfort, then she has actually become your enemy; for it is impossible to live and love fully today when “Yesterday” still has your heart held captive within her gnarled grasp.

Your biggest problem, may not be your current problem, your biggest problem maybe that you are still holding on to yesterday’s success. If you are feeling stuck today, it may be time to let go of yesterday for once and for all…

Instead let the “today” be your lover, embrace every uncensored moment, seize the incredible opportunities that are right in front of you, and you can fall in love over and over again every single day (Tweet).
