The Beginners Guide to Changing Your World

Written by Khadijah L — A New Guest Contributor and the writer of Yemeni Journey

 
What do you honestly think would happen if you did one thing – one tiny, ant-moving-a-grain-of-sand thing, or even one yelling, leaping, bounding over crevasses thing- today, right now, to affect change?

One thing to change you, your family, your community, society, the world?

One thing to open minds, change thought, nurture compassion, awaken hearts, shake up the status quo, turn the world, if not upside down, then at least topsy turvy?

We all have hopes, wishes, ideas, and visions, but we often believe we have no way to form these castles in the air into real, concrete, fortresses on earth.

I want to tell you a secret.

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

Drop everything, start now; I believe in you, but it’s time you believed in yourself!

 


 

The clock is ticking, let’s be people of action. Share one thing that you’re going to do, right now, to affect positive change in the comment section below (be creative)!

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.

Big Time Bloggers —> You DON’T want to read this!

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

 
Dear Big Time Blogger,

This is my second letter to you,  you were so filthy with me for writing the first one (read here). Some of you contacted me on social media, horrified that I would write such a post and extremely irate that I hadn’t contacted you first before posting.

I had earned your anger and it felt good!

Although you argued with the method in which I delivered my message, none of you actually had the courage to honestly address the points that I made in my first open letter.


And so I ask you again:

“If you have authority, if you have influence, if there are ears who are listening, why do you continue to only write about the things that make you money?”

At what point do you throw down your pen and say screw it, there are more important things at play here than my business?

To put it plainly, how many people have to die (who has to die), before you will break stride and comment on the very real things that are happening in our world?

The danger of such indifference is a different kind of poverty, a poverty not of the wallet but of the heart.

Ask yourself this question when you are feeling stuck

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

 
Yesterday, I had the joy of being interviewed by Lovelyn Bettison on her excellent Imagine The Possibilities Podcast — you can listen to the full interview here.

One of the things we discussed was “what to do when you are feeling stuck?” In my experience we get stuck when we tie our values to a particular outcome or result.

Perhaps you have a big goal or a big dream, and right now it just seems impossible, and as a result you’ve stopped moving forward, you may even feel as though you are slowing sinking in the mud of life.

To illustrate the point, one of my life goals is to make films and TV shows that really connect people to “what matters most” in their lives — clearly this is a humungous goal that requires providence, it requires a lot of people to say yes all at the one time — and if I am honest, right now it is not within my reach.

But that life goal is just of the many great things that I would love to do, what is really important to me, what is so life-giving and vital, is the deeper purpose behind all of my dreams, you see I find life when I connect others to “what matters most” for them… and again if I am honest I can actually do that everyday, through this blog, when working with our Digital Strategy Clients, or through simply having a coffee with a friend.

If you are feeling stuck right now, then I would encourage you to first ask yourself the deeper question… “what matters most to me?

I have lied

Today’s post is written by John Philpin, a global executive and business consultant.

 
 
I have lied.

You have lied.

We all lie.

We lie to protect the status quo of the why’s, how’s, who’s, where’s, when’s and what’s of society, of how we live and what we accept as ‘normal’. And with that acceptance our lies make us complicit in the inaction that engulfs society today.

Turn those lies into truth now, this very minute.

No time like the present to stop lying.
