The Magic of Seven Sentences

  1. 1. The Magic of Seven Sentences With Geoff & Athaliah Talbot Curated by Prashant Harish Hari
  2. 2. 1) Where do you get your daily inspiration from? Seven Sentences inspires daily... • our daily inspiration comes from people, creatives, dreamers, thought leaders, children,justice, kindness, those who are enduring poverty,the voiceless, and anyone with a dream and a need to live out that dream.
  3. 3. 2) What do you see as the future of creativity and imagination? Do you think weve hit an era of stifled creativity, or an era where well be more creative and imaginative?• I think creativity and imagination are on the rise. We hear it in the music, we see it in social media. People are given to novel ways of telling their story and sharing their perspective. It’s true that everyone has a story, but there are a myriad of ways in which one can tell his or her story and we think we’re seeing people becoming more courageous in developing new ideas for how to innovate more and more.
  4. 4. 3) Its easy for artists to get disheartened and give up, advice like "NEVER GIVE UP" and "DONT GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS" etc, sound nice when read, however hard to adhere to (specially in the world of commercial reality), what tangible advice would you give to people who follow their dreams? If your dream has actual value to anyone else other thanyourself, then it must be able to be monetized. Because money is the primary way that we measure value in the world in so if it has actual which your dream exist...value, it will also have a dollar value.
  5. 5. 3) Its easy for artists to get disheartened and give up, advice like "NEVER GIVE UP" and "DONT GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS" etc, sound nice when read, however hard to adhere to (specially in the world of commercial reality), what tangible advice would you give to people who follow their dreams? Early in your dream chasing endeavors it can be difficult to find this value,because you are still developing your craft and your dreams are actually not yet valuable because they most likely are not yet refined enough to bring about a return. The worst thing you can do at this stage of the process issulk, bemoan your lack of luck, or give in. Let the struggle refine your dream, let it make you better at what you do. Once you start providing sufficientvalue to others through your dream, the money will come, it has too. The first part of dream chasing is simply about survival and refinement, it is both painful and necessary. The other question to ask is simply, how can I provide value (and be remunerated) through each stage of my dream. That is where having the right strategy for your dream from the beginning is critical.
  6. 6. 4) What 5 traits are crucial for individuals whoare following their dreams in order to succeed? • Persistence • Flexibility • Faith • A sense of humour • Hopefulness
  7. 7. 5) A lot of people, after they finish their PHD or Degree, have themindset "I wont be picking up a book again for a long time". How do you think one can change this mindset? I would suggest maybe spend some time reading fiction and Allow some time away watching movies. from serious reading by taking a break to read and view what one simply enjoys.
