Les Brown has been a huge influence in my life ever since my Amway days. Years ago I heard him speak at the Atlanta, Georgia dome.
There was over 80,000 people at this Free Enterprise event. I am pretty sure this video recording is from that Free Enterprise event I was at.
His story is one of courage and passion it is definitely worth listening to.
I have re-watched this many times, and it still sends shivers down my spine and motivates me to be better!
I hope it inspires you as it has me.
He also has done many other wonderful speeches that I have heard, and one of his most famous sayings he relays often in them that I absolutely love, I want to list for you here now.
“If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it, to give up your time, your peace and sleep for it.
If all that you dream and scheme is about it, and life seems useless and worthless without it.
If you gladly sweat for it and fret for it and plan for it and lose all your terror of the opposition for it. If you simply go after that thing that you want with all your capacity, strength and sagacity, faith, hope and confidence and stern pertinacity.
If neither cold, poverty, famine, nor gout, sickness nor pain, of body and brain, can keep you away from the thing that you want.
If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it, with the help of God, YOU WILL GET IT!” — Les Brown
You are still the man, Les Brown, after all of these years! Thank you for the inspiration and motivation that you have brought into the world and thank you for sharing your gifts with us.
I will forever appreciate them!
“It’s not over until I win!” as Les Brown always says..Make that your motto..and never give up!
I had that saying embroidered on a jacket of mine, to always remind me to never give up!
I miss that jacket, I lost it or some one stole it from me some where along the lines. I would have liked to have framed it and put it in my office I have now.
Oh well the past is cement and can not cry over spilled milk, nor would I want to. I still have the memories fresh in my brain, and that is all that matters..
Always forward my friend!
