The Best Is Yet To Come For You Publication

“When someone says the word can’t, show them the how.” — Franco Cianflone

When someone says the word can’t, show them the how.

How many people in your lifetime have told you that you can’t do something?

They’ve said that you can’t do it because you don’t have the resources, talent, education, experience, intelligence and on and on. Well, they have all missed the boat on one singular thing that you do have and that is a burning desire.

That burning desire within catapults your efforts through unimaginable odds that would definitely crush some people that have all the other attributes mentioned above.

I’ve mentioned it many times in previous writings.

“Ignite a burning desire for success within that once you see results it becomes an addiction.”

Get addicted to your success. Once addicted, no one will ever have to tell you to get on with it.


So, get addicted to your success, as once you are addicted, no one will ever have to tell you to get on with it. This is absolutely guaranteed as the burning desire; the silver bullet within you will torpedo you towards unimaginable heights never before achieved.

Get ready for the ride of your life.

You don’t have to convince the planet. You only have to convince yourself that you can be, do or have anything that you want in this lifetime.

Create your own movie and live it full throttle.

Don’t listen to the news, your neighbor, your relatives, or anyone else that thinks that they have your best interests at heart.

Your best interests lie within you.

Don’t look anywhere outside of you.

Look inside as your burning desire lives within you.

Mark Twain said it best. “The two most important days in one’s life is the day they are born and the day they find out why.”

You were created for abundance and wealth and not lack and limitation. The higher side of your personality is always seeking greater expression and expansion.

Focus only on what you want intellectually, emotionally, spiritually physically and financially.

No longer focus on present circumstances as present circumstances are continually changing and do not count.

You always get what you focus on and you’re thinking and subsequent attitude determines your focus.

Amazing and glorious possibilities exist but some people will never see them in their lifetime. They are beautiful people but they are not aware.

Change is inevitable but personal growth is optional. One must move from status quo lane in order to achieve greater results.

Mental toughness with compassion and understanding crushes all of the emotional barriers. Mental toughness doesn’t mean being rude, arrogant, stubborn, intolerant, or tough.

Mental Toughness implies ones ability to compartmentalize.
You acquire the knowledge and mental strength in order to place issues or problems into very distinct and separate boxes without compromising your emotional intelligence.

The truth is that everyone wants to be, do, or have more. The only way to achieve this is to embrace information that resonates with your inner core. Internalize it with feeling and emotion and as a result, a burning desire will arise within.

You will feel alive and vibrant. The explosive emotion in your mind, body, and spirit creates a volcano of powerful ideas. The blood flowing through your body is electrified with passion and purpose.


You just woke up and experienced an explosive psychological impact.

The status quo in your life just died and you flipped the switch in your brain from default to design.

Only one thing can prevent you from achieving the above.


FEAR is false evidence that appears real.

Therefore, Forget Everything About Resistance that is blocking your path.

Be curious.

Be adventurous.

Live by design.

Make the leap and bridge the gap.

Be aware.

As you do this, you will only focus on what you want, desire and deserve and ultimately understand that present circumstances never count.

Anyone that has ever achieved greatness understands the latter.

Present circumstances on the planet might not be congenial at this time however this too shall pass as present circumstances do not count, unfavorable as they may be at times.

The best is yet to come for you.

Carpe Momentum.

Yours in success,

Franco Cianflone
