Avoid Making The Worst Decision Of Your Life – Part 2

Yesterday we threw out the rulebook as we talked about the dangers of purchasing formula driven success online.

Today, I want to look at what I believe it really takes to succeed online.

To establish success it is imperative that we first discover what is truly unique and remarkable about the voice of an individual, an organization or a brand.

Just as there is nothing truly compelling or remarkable about a person who only communicates with cliches and popular language in real life, so it is with a business that has yet to establish its own unique voice.

How do you find your own unique voice?

It takes time, you have to ask yourself difficult questions, you have to throw off the voices of others, you have to do some very deep work often with an experienced facilitator.

Yet, at the end of the day, it is the only work that truly matters, your brand deserves to be an oracle, calling others to it in a very unique and compelling way.

Avoid Making The Worst Decision Of Your Life – Part 1

The time to throw out the rulebook is now.

Many a smart online entrepreneur has probably been waving their rulebook at you lately, telling you that they have found the secret recipe that will grow your business, launch your career or make you into the next guru, blah, blah, blah.

Of course the rulebook is actually their license to print money because they are using it to promise you success and charge you a crap load. I hate to break it to you but you will almost certainly never have success by following their rulebook or taking their program.

We do NOT subscribe to the rulebook theory, all the work that we do with our clients is about throwing off this crazy notion of “formula driven success.” You are not a formula,  you are  a unique human being with specific gifts and talents and we have to find the best way for you to add value to our world.

Think about it, unless you discover, shape and refine your own unique voice, you will never stand out from the crowd, no matter what formula you are using.

Stinking Pride Will Kill You Every Time.

Have you been given much?

OR

Have you earned every cent of your endowment with your own sweat and blood?

These are important questions, for they will shape your posture and this posture will greatly affect the way you interact with others.

The proud man stands on the podium of his success shouting, “look what I have done,” and yet the humble (and equally successful) man kneels on the ground quietly proclaiming “look at what I have been given.”

Entitlement has nothing to do with the contents of your wallet, and it has everything to do with the posture of your heart.

Remain in the place of humility and you will be truly wealthy in the only currency that truly matters.

How to make the most of a very bad mood

Emotion is very empowering.

Emotion clearly contains the word “motion” and if you channel the energy correctly, a bad mood can be an incredibly valuable tool when it comes to marketing your business or writing a blog.

In fact the E in E-motion suggests that the emotion is in fact some kind of juicy cyber tool that can really take you places; I believe this to be so.

Most of the very popular blogposts on The Seven Sentence Blog were written when I (Geoff) was under some kind of emotional stress.

Why?

Emotion channeled correctly can sharpen your voice, adding clarity and assuredness to a voice that was otherwise veiled by fear.

Next time you are in a bad mood, try writing a blog post and see if you can transform something ugly into something that is beautiful.

How To Put The Soul Back Into Your Business

Are you really proud of your business?

I hope so.

It is actually very easy to let the busyness of life and the pressure of making this “thing” fly, steal the soul from everything you do.

If we’re not careful everything can become “dollars and cents,” and we can forget that our business was and always will be about adding value to the lives of the people whom we love.

Sometimes to move forward we have to first go back.

When we re-establish a pure connection with our “why”, our creativity blossoms and we find exciting new ways of adding value to the lives of those we cherish.

Do you remember why you started your business?

How To Find Your Family On The Internet

The concept of family is different for everyone.

For some family is blood, and there is a strong sense of unity and togetherness. For others though, life is very much a journey on your own, out there cutting new tracks, bravely putting one foot ahead of the other, with little understanding or support from the family you were born into.

If this is you, please don’t make the “I’m on my own” agreement with your soul.

Because although there is a family made from blood, there is also a family made from soul and spirit and this family is available to all who seek.

How can you find your family on the internet?

You must no longer hide the interior of your heart from the world, stand proudly and without shame, hone and share the unique purity of your voice with others and the family of your dreams will begin to gather — you are not alone.

When you are stuck in the impossible

Impossible.

How many times have you heard that word?

How many times do you say it yourself?

I think we journey through long seasons of the impossible, where our dreams seem so very far away.

I understand these seasons, actually I am in one right now, and it is painful and difficult, actually it feels impossible.

What do you do when you are stuck in the impossible?

I try and understand the valley for what it is AND I try not to lose sight of that glimmer of hope sitting far away on the horizon; for there I faithfully believe I will find my dreams patiently waiting for me.
