2/15/13 Westmore News: Local musician to fundraise with concert at Capitol Theatre
We picked our opener for the "Charlie Scopoletti Truth Concert & Charity Event" on March 7th! Out of 900 Reverbnation submissions, Joe Marson stood out from everyone else with his soulful music. We look forward to having him on the show. Congrats Joe!! Check out his music: www.joemarson.com __________________________________________________________________________
If you would have asked me a year ago if I would be speaking in front of people and sharing with them my story of survival and other personal information, I would have said to you; No Way! Playing and singing is one thing…there is no problem there, but standing with no guitar to hide behind, just my words exposed, is a whole other ballgame.
In the last few months though, I felt the need to start getting out there and facing what I knew was my fear. I needed to start spreading the word about my upcoming concert and charity event, telling people about my story of survival and trying to inspire while doing it.
A very wise person told me this past summer that this was what I was meant to be doing, along with my music. I also read something from Mastin Kipp of The Daily Love. The title was “What to do when you feel you are not ready".... He says he starts before he is ready.. he calls it the "Ready, fire, aim" strategy. He continues to say “You may not be ready to perform brain surgery, but you are ready to start your journey into learning about that practice now.”
There is also, what I call the Trust Fall strategy. You know that game you played in elementary school when you had to climb something and fall backwards and trust that your piers or something would be there to catch you. This is the same thing. Sometimes you just have to put yourself out there and do it, trust that life will support you…in some situations it’s about "progress over perfection." Be prepared and do your best.
That’s what I've been doing. Putting myself out there, speaking in front of public officials at town meetings, talking with kids at children’s hospital, doing press and radio interviews. And sure I make mistakes, I mess up words and forget things but you know what? It’s OK because I’m being me, I am moving in a forward direction, making progress and spreading my music and story.
As I continue on this path, I spoke at a meeting in front of the Mayor of Port Chester NY and the board of trustees last night. I gave my speech and felt good about it and when I was finished sharing, The Mayor surprised me with a proclamation. What a special moment it was..
On March 7th the Village of Port Chester NY proclaims it will be…
“Charlie Scopoletti Day
“WHEREAS: Charlie Scopoletti’s outstanding drive, determination & high level of achievement makes him a positive role model in our community, motivating and inspiring other people to develop and utilize their full potential. We applaud him & wish Charlie the greatest success in all his future endeavors."
WOW, how honored I am to receive this kind of acknowledgement. It goes to show you, get out there and do the things that are calling you, face those fears, trust and everything will start falling into place!
Much Love & Gratitude _________________________________________________________
