Stop the chatter

Stop the chatter and listen to your own voice, deep within that is pleading with you. You can do this and other peoples opinion of your ability to do it is meaningless. All you need is confidence in yourself and your ability to be, do or have anything that you desire in this lifetime.

Beginning right now.

This second in time.

Stop the chatter and listen to your own voice, deep within that is pleading with you.

You can do this and other peoples opinion of your ability to do it is meaningless.

All you need is confidence in yourself and your ability to be, do or have anything that you desire in this lifetime.

Here is a blast from the past.

Fifty-three years ago, we were in the heart of Manhattan in New York City.
We were young, naive, and eager to pitch a few songs that we had written for some of the labels in NYC.

On our way to Columbia at the time, I met this busker that was playing very cool jazz on his alto saxophone. The busker had a disheveled appearance.

I asked him if he could play Scrapple From the Apple by Charlie Parker. He did and it was amazing and over the top.
Scrapple From the Apple is in the key of F for all the jazz aficionados.

I said, “Can you play it in the key of F sharp?”

“Hell man, I can play it in any key. It don’t matter to me how many sharps or flats.” he replied.

His performance was flawless.

I continued by asking him, “Why aren’t you playing on Broadway or in other popular jazz clubs?” He replied, “No I can’t do that gig. I can’t get my s . . . together.”

He was an awesome musician but mentioned that he was too caught up in drugs and alcohol. He also admitted that his real problem was confidence.

Some people have the greatest skill on the planet but lack the confidence to employ it.

That day was a wakeup call.

Without confidence, nothing happens.

Here is a breakdown.

C = Create something

O = Ongoing

N = Nurture

F = Faith

I = Invest

D = Decide

E = Enjoy

N = Negotiate

C = Care

E = Elevate

What sets you apart from the pack?

It begins with stopping the chatter in your midst.

Carpe Momentum.

Yours in success,

Franco Cianflone
