You are the star of your show. You are the director, you're writing the script. You will determine whether your life is a smash office hit or a flop - you determine that. You’ve got to sell yourself everyday on your abilities, on what you're doing, on the goal that you want to reach. You've got to sell yourself everyday. Everyday. Everyday. It will manifest itself in what you're doing. Whatever we have a right now, whatever we are demonstrating in our lives is a result of what we believe subconsciously that we deserve. You've got convince yourself EVERYDAY. If you don’t believe in yourself, it won’t happen for you.
- Les Brown
Understand: people will constantly attack you in life. One of their main weapons will be to instill in you doubts about yourself, you're worth, your abilities, your potential. They will often disguise this is their objective opinion, but invariably it has a political purpose. They want to keep you down. In every moment of life you can defy and deny people this power. You do so by maintaining a sense of purpose, a high destiny you are fulfilling
Do not experience possibility blindness.
All of us are self-made, but only the successful will admit it. - Les Brown
Stop living like you have a thousand years to live.
"There is very little toughness and most people don't have it figured out. It's as if people are standing at the foot of a mountain. And they have this abstract concept called impact that they want to have on the world - which is the summit. But they don't see the mountain. I don't care if you go up the mountain quickly or slowly - there's still a mountain" - Simon Sinek
Our time with the three of them taught us lessons that we had somehow forgot. Always go for a run even if it is raining. Enjoy the journey, never forget to play and feel the joy of life. Jump for joy when you are happy. Surround yourself with the people you love. Live in the moment, have boundless energy. Listen more than you talk, but when you do talk speak from the heart. It’s never too late to learn. Look for the best in everyone and be loyal. Love unconditionally. And shine with all of your light, all of the time.
How Much Can You Endure
Your life is your life, don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission. Be on the watch. there are ways out. There is light somewhere. it may not be much light but it beats the darkness. Be on the watch. The gods will offer you chances, know them, take them. You can’t beat death, but you can beat death in life, sometimes. And the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be. Your life is your life. Know it while you have it. You are marvelous. The gods wait to delight in you. - by Charles Bukowski
