Today, it is my turn to be vulnerable.

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

 
 
Vulnerability is difficult because it nearly always encroaches upon our fear of appearing weak (Tweet).

Vulnerability is important because it humanizes the apparently indestructible ones among us and it makes the rest of us feel normal and okay.

Today, it is my turn to be vulnerable.

We have thousands of blog readers spread right across the globe here at the Seven Sentence Blog but the truth is we don’t often hear from many of you in the comments section or via email.

I want to know our audience, I want to create work that matters and truthfully impacts the lives of others.

Sometimes I am afraid that I maybe writing these words into an abyss, that scares me, I want this to be your blog and not just mine.

Send me an email, say hello, leave a comment in the blog section and tell me what “vulnerability” means to you.
 
Thanks
Geoff

You are NOT the problem

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

 
 
When things are not going well with our careers or our businesses it is easy to look outward and blame “external factors” for our lack of success.

Of course, laying the blame never solves the problem, we are simply avoiding responsibility and choosing to become victims to circumstance and other peoples choices.

When we blame we shrink, we atrophy, we become passengers in the vehicle of our lives, allowing someone else to drive us to a place that is not of our choosing.

If we want to change our businesses, then we must first prioritize personal growth (Tweet).

There is a tendency to think of ourselves as the problem, but even here you are still blaming — a person is never the problem, you are a human being full of untapped potential and limitless possibilities.

Therefore the real problem is that you have become fixated on finding problems, rather than powerfully activating your God given right to make powerful choices as a human being in any situation.

All that needs to change is your mindset — moving it from being problem-orientated to being solution-focussed.

He lives in a dark room

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

 
 
The Internet is no place to hide and it’s certainly no place to pretend.

It is easy to sit behind a screen, in a dark little room and count your followers or fans.

It is easy to deceive yourself into thinking than online numbers will by necessity translate into business success; nothing could be further than the truth.

Very few people have a strategic approach that leverages the Internet in a manner that builds actual, real life business relationships.

The truth is time wrongly spent on social media could actually harm your business, you must honestly ask yourself the following question…

“How many clients or customers have I met through social media in the past 12-months?”

If your answer is less than 3, then you should contact me for a free conversation here.

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you are not artistic

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

 
 
Do you ever feel like you are not creative?

Apparently 50% of the population feel this way but I don’t think that it is true.

I think every single person on the face of planet earth is an artist in some way, shape or form.

The problem lies in how we have subconsciously defined art — we tend to think of it in terms of music, fine art, abstract art, storytelling, poetry or performance art.

But art is so much more than any of this.

Anything you do with great passion, anything you give yourself wholly too, anytime you act or move in a way in a way that involves any kind of creative solution — when you do any of this, you are being artistic.

The more artistic you are the more alive you become, don’t let anyone ever tell you that you are not artistic.

The Importance of Inspiration

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

 
 
To do hard work you need both determination and courage. To do really great work you need a healthy dose of inspiration.

To consistently produce really great work you need to walk hand in hand with inspiration on a daily basis. It takes courage to do this.

If you don’t fill the gas tank of your car up every 300+ miles eventually you will run out of juice, it is the same with inspiration.

You can’t muscle inspiration, you can’t do great work by simply trying harder, you have to put the right fuel in your tank.

What are you doing to remain continually inspired?

How to be irresistible

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

 
 
People can spend a lot money trying to become more “magnetic” and “irresistible.”

The craziest thing is, everything they need to know they could actually learn from my 2.5 year-old son — he is an master in magnetism, in fact most children are.

It is very difficult not to smile when a small child laughs, and it is super hard to resist when they call out “let’s play Daddy.”

He is difficult to resist because he is pure, because he is without guile, because he is unafraid to ask and because he puts the relational aspect of the task first.

What if our brands expressed themselves this way online?

Have we become so complex and so ambitious that we’ve created stumbling blocks between ourselves and others?

Is it time to fall in love with the joy of being once again?
