Les Brown’s Steps to Living Your Dreams

In September, Willie Jolley interviewed motivational speaker Les Brown on his new SiriusXM Show.

Les Brown has been named One of the Top Five Speakers In The World by Toastmasters International, inducted into The Speakers Hall of Fame, and recipient of the Prestigious Golden Gavel Award.

How Les Brown got to this position in life is remarkable. He and his twin brother were adopted when they were 6 weeks old by a single, uneducated woman who worked in a cafeteria. By fifth grade, Les was labeled “educably mentally retarded” and was held back several times before high school. His mother’s strength and inspiration pushed him to overcome his low self-esteem.

It was a promise to his mother that they would overcome poverty that motivated Les to see the greatness in himself and to develop a passion to learn. Thus began his journey to helping others succeed also.
“My mission is to get a message out that will help people become uncomfortable with their mediocrity. A lot of people are content with their discontent. I want to be the catalyst that enables them to see themselves having more and achieving more.”

In his interview on SiriusXM with Willie Jolley, Les shared seven steps to living your dreams:

  1. Develop your mind. “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Develop your mind and you will develop the mindset that will attract the money.
  2. “O.Q.P.”- Hang out with “Only Quality People.” Who you run with will be who you become!
  3. Develop your communication skills. Once you open your mouth, you tell the world who you are!
  4. Think Big and Bold. What you think about, you can bring about. Remember, someone’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality. You make the choice for your destiny.
  5. Invest in yourself. There is a direct correlation between the books and programs you read or listen to, and the amount of money you make.
  6. Expand your skill sets. Expand or become expendable. You get paid for the value you bring to the marketplace.
  7. Speak Life Not Death; Blessings Not Curses! Speak power into your life. Your words create your reality. Make your conversations positive, productive, purposeful and profitable.

“You must think of failure and defeat as the springboards to new achievements or to the next level of accomplishment.” Les Brown
