Bad News – Death is knocking at my door

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

 
If you stop long enough to listen you may hear the faintest knock on the door of your heart.

Lately I’ve struggled to stop, I’ve found it hard to listen, the stress of juggling family, business and financial pressure has made it almost impossible for me to hear the knock on the door of my heart… perhaps you can relate to this.

BUT just because I cannot hear the knock, just because I am so completely unaware that someone is waiting at my door, this ignorance does not change the truth, there is someone knocking.

Who is knocking?

You may call him DEATH, but he is a different kind of death than you might first imagine, he is in fact the hero of my soul.

He is inviting me die to the material distractions of life, he is inviting me to lay down all of my anxiety, he is calling me away from the superficial, towards what really matters most.

It is time for me to slow down, it is time for me to surrender again, it is time for me to open the door…

2015 Copyright Seven Sentences – Knock On The Door Of My Heart

I probably shouldn’t tell you this BUT…

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

 
In the world of the Internet being niche is king. I have some great friends who are creating blogs and businesses around “niche topics” like “How To Make Goat Cheese” or “Ancient and Natural Herbalism.”

I probably shouldn’t tell you this but I must admit that their clarity makes me jealous because at The Seven Sentence Blog we are not yet that well defined.

I wish we were, but I find it impossible to choose a single topic, to focus on a specific industry, or to just call ourselves Digital Strategists and to solely focus on creating online marketing content.

The reason for this may sound strange, but what you do, is not really that important to me —> but why you do it, and helping you to do it brilliantly this makes my heart beat at twice its normal speed.

So instead of being niche (and no doubt growing faster), we’ve chosen to embrace diversity and pull together people according to their values; things like bravery, wanting to make a difference, openness, and a refusal to simply conform.

I must say, I love how unique this makes our community, I love that we’re connected by our hearts and not our hobbies, I am so proud of what we have built together.

A Foolproof tip for anyone who is starting something new

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

 

If you are uncertain about how to start something new, then you are completely and utterly normal.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that you need to know everything before you begin, such knowledge is impossible to attain!

The future is always unknown.

The only way to begin is to begin, and you will only find your way forward when you begin moving (Tweet).

Your journey isn’t linear anyway, there are an infinite number of pathways and possibilities and your goals will dynamically shift and change as you move forward.

Only one thing is certain, you will never reach your destination if you do not begin walking towards it.

Try this creative exercise here, it maybe helpful in getting you energized for the exciting journey before you.

I want to tell you a secret.

I believe in you, and I believe you can make a difference (Tweet).

The SECRET TRUTH that no one is telling you

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

 
You are magnificent.

Perhaps you don’t feel magnificent and perhaps no one is telling you how well you are doing, day in and day out… BUT just because you don’t feel it and just because you are are not hearing it — doesn’t mean that isn’t true.

Life is full of challenges, obstacles, stresses and conflict and it is important that we don’t start to name ourselves by our failures, indiscretions and hardships.

Why? Because there is no future in it and because it is simply not true.

Human beings are magnificent creatures, flawed beyond measure but beautiful in their struggle to find meaning in life.

Take a moment, a breath, to see outside of your battles today, get a glimpse of the magnificent diamond inside of you, a diamond that is being refined and polished through all the seasons of life… you are magnificent.


 

SHARE this post with a friend who needs to know that they are also magnificent.

How to create content that drives people crazy

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

 
Break all the rules.

I am constantly encouraging our clients and members of our Blog Masters Program to break all the rules of blogging.

Of course the imperative states that you must learn all the rules before you break them… but I would break that rule too! Rules can cling on like leeches, once they are attached they have this tendency to hang around like a fearful friend, encouraging you to never make a single mistake in your life.

When you follow the rules, you merge into a single uniform lane of traffic where conformity becomes the norm and standing out is impossible.

Your creativity is wild and you shouldn’t keep it in a box (Tweet). When we unleash our creativity we go against the traffic, we become all terrain, different, unique and noticeable.

The only way to create content that drives people crazy, is to break the rules in a genuinely remarkable way that truly reflects who you are.
