Let’s NOT go to a MASQUERADE Party

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

 
You are a leader.

You may not be a leader in the traditional sense, you may not have a title and you may not have an A-type personality but do not allow that to disqualify you from the role that you are being invited to play.

When I close my eyes, I see you standing there holding a full-face sculptured mask. In my imagination, you are not sure whether to put the mask on OR take the mask off. You should take it off.

The only way for you to lead is to do it your way, unmasked, to lead through weakness, through authenticity and through vulnerability (Tweet)

Will you lead us?

I’ve been drinking poison from the Green Demon

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

 
I wrote a post about the importance pushing back fear (here) a week ago and since then I’ve been stuck battling my own green demons.

FEAR affects everyone.

However, we cannot, we must not let fear be the narrator of our lives.

Fear is trying to tell me right now, not to write this post, that no one wants to read about Fear, he’s trying to tell me that I am the only one who suffers from this affliction —> but I am going to keep on writing this post anyway.

What is fear telling you not to do? What is fear telling you that you must do?

What would happen if you and I refused to listen to Fear and went in the opposite direction?

It is normal to feel afraid when we are embarking on anything new, let’s put our fingers in our ears, let’s tune out that fearful whiny voice and let’s keep moving forward together.

Come lie down on the couch with me baby….

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

 
Procrastination is the fatal acceptance of the status quo.

Procrastination avoids tension, it hates difficult questions, it accepts the life sentence of being chained to ordinary with no chance of parole (Tweet).

You must fight and defeat procrastination if you wish to change your circumstances and influence the world.

HOW?

You cannot believe that soothing voice that promises you that “later is good enough”. You have to stay with the tension of now, you cannot avoid the tension through escapism, you must push through it and past it to earn your relief(reward).

The truth is procrastination leads to more tension not less… keep pushing though, keep say yes to the tension of now, and you will be amazed at how much better you feel.

When HOPE went missing on a Saturday Night

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

 
You’ve been out roaming the streets looking for her everywhere, crying, calling out, asking friends for help, but you can’t find her anywhere.

So you finally crawl home, worn out, tired, and slowly and increasingly you begin to accept your new reality — Hope doesn’t live with you anymore. You slip back down in the couch, emotionally worn out and you promise your heart that you will never “love” like this again.

And then…

…then you hear a noise in a kitchen cupboard, the sound of your beloved snoring, she was never out on the streets, Hope had become trapped and had fallen asleep in a kitchen cupboard in your home.

Hope is not a cat, Hope in this case is the long forgotten passion that you had for your dreams. Perhaps you’ve looked for her in places where you did not find her, perhaps you’ve walked desolate lonely streets winter after winter calling out, searching for hope and yet never finding her.

Be reminded today that your dreams, your passion and your Hope will never leave you, for seasons they may sleep but at the appointed time they will awaken and you will find them where they have always been… in the cupboard of your heart.

He frightens me, but I won’t let him win… EVER!

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

 
Do you want to do something valuable, something that makes a huge difference in our world?

You can play around with the superficial, you can dip your toe in the water, you can give off the impression of doing something meaningful… BUT… If you really want to break new ground then you are going to have to confront your Number 1 enemy.

FEAR.

What are you most afraid of doing? What you are avoiding?

You become the leader that others want to follow, you grab ahold of success, not when you follow the crowd, but when you stare down your own fears and move confidently towards them.

The Giant Myth Of Overnight Success (and Failure)

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

 

From zero to hero & vice versa.

It’s amazing how quickly success seems to come to some companies, some brands and some people — yesterday it seemed as though they were ordinary and yet, on this new bright morning, TODAY it seems as though they are “suddenly” taking over the world!

OR VICE VERSA, one day you are the number one golfer in the world, possibly the greatest golfer of all time and the NEXT day your golf clubs are working against you and not for you… and we who are watching are stunned at how quickly you have fallen from grace. It didn’t actually happen overnight BUT it did happen, it happened one small decision at a time, until the tipping point was reached, the door opened and the story could not be contained any longer.

The very same principles apply to overnight success, if you can see behind the scenes, if you can look underneath the ground at the foundations that are being built — you can actually predict success on a reasonably accurate basis.

So my questions to you are these, are you building trust today in the small decisions that you are making, are relationships being deepened, are you learning and growing in your business, in your career or your craft?

It may not happen overnight but if you persist in the positive it will eventually happen – KEEP GOING! (Tweet this)
