“Lose the piranhas”

“Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets.” — Anthon St. Maarten

“Lose the piranhas”

“Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality.” — Les Brown

Get rid of your excess baggage. Other people’s opinion of you does not matter.


God’s opinion of you is the only thing that really matters.

I’m not talking about religion. I am referring to spiritual awareness.

When an individual is spiritually aware of self, what anyone else says is of no consequence.

As you embark on this personal journey, abandon the need for approval from anyone.

The odds of anyone showing up on the planet are four hundred trillion to one.

You’re perfect just the way you are right now and you are in a process of a wonderful enfoldment according to God’s divine plan.

You are special, unique and are a member of the DNA exclusivity club.

The doubters, the naysayers and everyone else that resides in that negative camp will never have the stamina, persistence and determination to press forward.

You do as you are taking your precious time to read this daily power action and continue to empower yourself.

Release them to the universe, as they are piranhas.

Be aware as other piranhas that are not so easily identifiable lurk in the background.

These show up in your thought life, conscious and subconscious. With discipline, you can easily master the conscious ones but the subconscious ones require more deliberate and determined effort.

Continue to build your awareness daily in order to shore up the treasures in the vault of your glorious mind.

Stay in the game and lose the piranhas in your life.

Carpe Momentum.

Yours in success,

Franco Cianflone
