Be you

“When I say to you, there is nobody like me, and there never was, that is a statement I want every woman to feel and make about themselves.” — Lady Gaga

“Be you”

“Comparison is the thief of joy.” — Theodore Roosevelt

“Be you”

“Every single thing you do matters. You have been created as one of a kind. You have been created in order to make a difference. You have within you the power to change the world.” — Andy Andrews

Why would you ever take your valuable time to compare yourself to anyone else in this universe? However, many intelligent and beautiful people do this every single day.

In their daily quest for validation, people everywhere seek this via social media and sundry sources. As of 2023, to date, there are approximately 4.89 billion users on various social platforms.

Connecting with people is awesome but seeking validation outwardly is counterproductive.

Someone greater than all of us already gave us the ultimate validation at birth.

Work from the inside out otherwise you will always be dependent on some external force in order to fill the void.

Validation begins at the core.

Enjoy precious time with your family, your children, your spouse, your significant other, your friends or anyone else that needs the significance of family and nurturing.

Our time today is so fragmented with all types of distractions that sometimes, we all lose sight of what is the most fundamental and important component of this thing that we call life.

Lose all the distractions that take us away from what is really important in our lives. Begin to nurture others and you will begin to nurture yourself.

Aim to always help and raise people up to their highest calling, which is love.

Doing so will validate the most important person.


Be you!

Carpe Momentum.

Yours in success,

Franco Cianflone
