I have been listening and watching Les Brown’s audio and video programs for a couple of years now. His messages has always been inspiring and encouraging.
Les Brown is a highly respected motivational speaker, TV personality and the author of the highly acclaimed Live Your Dreams and It’s not over till You Win.
Last month, it has been a great privilege to hear from Mr Brown live in person at National Achievers Congress 2013. I am so thankful to God for giving me the opportunity to learn more life lessons.
Here are some powerful messages from Les Brown that I would like to share:
Create the Life You Want
One of the most important things you need to do for yourself is to choose a goal that is important to you. If you need to set goals for your career, find a job or profession that is important to you. It has to go beyond the bills that it pays.
Create a higher purpose for doing what you do. Find something you enjoy doing and build your goals around it. Do something that you love to do. Something that resonate with your spirit.
See Yourself Beyond Your Circumstance
Many of us tend to make our fears more powerful than our dreams. You can accept fear as an emotion, but not as a force to hold you back. Quit playing it safe. You got to become a risk taker. You cannot fit a big life into a small version of your thinking. You are chosen to be on this path. Believe that everything works out as it should. You can create unlimited possibilities.
See yourself confronting your fears in your mind’s eye and handling those fears like a champ. Tell yourself you are more than able.
Bring Out the BEST within Yourself and Others
Do not sit on your greatness.Each of us have the responsibility to put your gifts to work.
Tell others that all their best is within them. Inspire others to reach within for it and bring it out for the world to marvel at.
Do not worry about your competition. Focus on yourself. Someone opinion of you does not have to be your reality.
Work Hard and Preserver
A key to success: If you do what is easy, your life will be hard. If you do what is hard, your life would be easy.
Take risks. Stand up for what you want and do not let anyone turn you around from your pursuit of your dream.
Knowledge is the New Currency
Improve yourself constantly. Everyday, make a commitment to do better and be more knowledgeable. Be determined to handle any challenge in a way that will make you grow.You cannot allow your life to run on autopilot, waiting for life to act on you. You must act on life.
Everyday is a Gift
Each day is a gift filled with unlimited possibilities to rise above our fear, self- limiting beliefs and mediocrity to fulfill our purpose. Make each day count by setting goals to succeed, then make every effort to exceed your expectations.
