It’s Time For Certain Leaders To Think, Er, Differently.

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

 
 
Leaders, people are your greatest asset. (Tweet)

At their best, they are wildly creative, have unique perspectives and carry within them a profound ability to connect and form deep relationships with others.

But for some strange reason and if we’re brutally honest, there are certain leaders who seem to be afraid of the very best that people have to offer; this type of leader embodies the very antithesis of genuine leadership.

He instead wields control, manipulation and suppression as tools of leadership — allowing no one to be his creative and individual self — molding a workplace culture that simply can not last.

The presence of this fear is now more prevalent than ever  and can be seen on the social media channels of the corporations and businesses led by this particular style of leading (Sidebar: We personally know of corporations who give their staff members a 50-page policy document to read before they can even tweet on behalf of the company).

The result: a leader’s greatest asset now regarded as a  corporate liability.

It is time to unlock your people (#7wordquote), time to be a genuine leader who liberates the genuine voices of your people allowing them to speak, engage and  create a diverse and true mosaic that represents your company’s culture on social media.

No one can steal your creativity away from you

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

 
 
Your creativity is an unwavering eternal gift, it cannot be stolen away from you.

But…

You can become detached from your creativity, you can assemble very wide walls inside your soul that separate you from the beauty of everything that makes you unique.

One of those ugly walls is a thick concrete block wall named “Unforgiveness.”

A lack of forgiveness breeds resentment, it darkens our hearts to the world around us and it distances us from our creative impulses.

If you find yourself blaming others, or life, or previous disappointments for your current lack of creativity, then it may pay to check the color of your heart.

Forgiveness is always your choice, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise (Tweet).

Your wallet is right next to your heart

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

 
 
Good intentions mean nothing.

Fancy words warm the skin for just a few seconds, but the heart remain cold unless our promises are fulfilled.

We can want things in life, but unless we invest something tangible, like our money, our skills or our time, then we are very unlikely to experience the fulfillment of our desires.

So many of us want things, but so few of us are prepared to dedicate ourselves to the discipline of investment.

Yes, investment is a discipline, it is a heart value expressed through tangible action.

If you want more from life in 2015 (or right now!) then you are going to have to cultivate this discipline; you may have to practice risk, you may have to learn restraint, the true nature of discipline is different for every person.

What is it that you want and what will you invest to get it?

The man who did too much!

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

 
 
I once met a man who did too much.

It wasn’t that he did too much, it was that he did everything.

Yes, he was full of passion, yes, he was a master in his craft, yet for some reason the more did, the more he shrunk.

Are you in grave danger of doing too much?

Are you afraid of letting others in?

Are you afraid of their opinions and perspectives?

Growth, whether it be personal or corporate is never an individual pursuit, you should desperately seek the unique perspectives of other people if you wish to grow to your full potential in 2015.

Play small and you will stay small

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

 
 
2015 is your year.

I don’t want you to sit back and simply watch others make waves anymore.

There is a boldness in you, even as you read these words, they are resonating with truth inside of you.

What do you need to do to make 2015 your year?

Well you cannot let fear or apathy win any longer, you must quit offering the world just a small portion of who you are, it is time, it is time to bring your whole self to the table.

Risk big and you may win big, play small and you will stay small (Tweet).

Start now, plan to succeed, 2015 is the year you will grow even beyond your own expectations.

When the “bravest” thing you can do is to “abandon” ship

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

 
 
There is nothing more deadly to an entrepreneurial soul than being stuck in a really, really bad job.

Too often people stay in jobs, working for others, building careers, or living in environments that do nothing to foster their own creativity and dreams.

Why do they stay?

Perhaps they are in love with the money, or perhaps they are simply clinging to the security of what they know rather than stretching out into the void and testing how good they could be on their own.

If you are stuck in a job that is slowly tearing you into pieces then the riskiest thing you can do is… nothing.

Conversely, the bravest thing you can do, maybe to abandon ship as soon as possible — the longer you wait the less likely you are to leave.

Be bold, be brave, pursue your dreams.

It is the “little things” my good amigo

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

 
 
What changes the world?

This is a critical question for anyone who strongly desires to make an impact.

Does any amount of money change the world? Do law changes or government programs actually change anything at all?

Perhaps none of these things on their own actually change anything at all…

Change happens one person at a time. True change begins when the human heart switches direction and moves towards love and kindness.

What are you moving people towards, what are you encouraging others to do on a daily basis with your actions and your words?
