“After it’s all said and done, winning in life boils down to the following. All humans on this glorious planet that we call Earth have four innate core factors that will determine their destiny. They are ambition, adaptation, resilience, and resolve. Work as hard as you can to develop these four core principles. If you do, you will soar to heights unimagined.” – Franco Cianflone

As we approach the end of this tumultuous year that has been riddled with so many events, take some precious time to contemplate the assertion that present circumstances are never lasting and do not count.

Present circumstances will never be congenial 100% of the time.

Actually, present circumstances will always challenge your ambition, adaptation, resilience and resolve.

Present circumstances do not count as they are continually changing. Focusing on present circumstances limits your ability to view the world beyond your personal perception.

God gave all of us free will and this free will allows us to move past present circumstances and really see the possibilities amid the impossibilities.

Embrace the impossibility with courage.

Courage is acting in the face of fear that is triggered by the impossibility.

Courage is absolutely essential if a person wants to realize their dreams and live in freedom.

There’s a whole big wide world of magnificence out there and you can have it but you must believe in yourself and persevere.

Life = Risk, so me must risk in order to be, do or have more in our lives. 

However, currently we are all experiencing this global pandemic and it is creating an incredible toll on people everywhere, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically and of course financially.


To the best of your ability, navigate this arduous journey by developing these four core principals.
Dr. Robert H. Schuller once said, “Tough times never last but tough people do.”

He was referring to mental toughness that is anchored in faith, gratitude and expectation.

Especially now, we must integrate this great quote with these four core principals in order to realize greater results in spite of this current malady and corresponding circumstances.

Animals are able to use their sensory factors, i.e. see, hear, smell, taste and touch.
Moreover, these creatures can adapt to their environment.

Humans can also do the latter but they have the added ability to think. They also have the innate ability to utilize their intellectual faculties, i.e. will, imagination, memory, perception, intuition and reason.

This is where the distinction begins regarding ones ability to cope and manage present circumstances.

Essentially, this is where the rubber meets the road.

Utilizing these intellectual factors allows one to join the ranks of AARR.

You have so much untapped talent, energy, creativity and awesomeness that has been dormant for so many years waiting to be unleashed and discovered.

Don’t put it aside any longer as your fearless actions in trust and humility commonly known as faith will take you to the finish line.

Others will be looking at the fire while you are walking through the fire towards your victory and success.

Merry Christmas and may happiness, success, prosperity and peace of mind chase you down in 2021.
