You deserve choose to win control your thinking and go win. Big, i'll. Never forget mr washington said mr brown. Yes, sir, what do you want to do with your life? Young man? I said, sir. I want to be a discharge.
He said, mr brown, i said yes, sir. He said you got to be hungry, i said what do you mean by that? He said people that are hungry are willing to do the things the day others won't do in order to have the things tomorrow.
Others won't. Have people that are hungry are willing to invest in themselves, people that are hungry will go to seminars and workshops, people that are hungry, always searching always seeking higher ground.
So how do you want to make it? I said i want to be a disc jockey. He says good here's. What to do? He said i want you to read 10 to 15 pages of something positive. Every day he said you don't get in life.
What you want you get in life. What you are, you must program yourself to success. He said won't, you listen to earl, nightingale and zig. Ziglar, listen, faith comes by hearing and hearing and hearing he said.
I want you to change your relationships and i don't want you to ever lose your hunger. I said what do you mean by that? He said people that are hungry, unstoppable people that are hungry, no matter what people they make it happen.
No matter what he says, i want you to listen to paul harvey. Who is he he's? The world's greatest communicator. Success leaves clues. Young man always listen and follow people who are doing what it is.
You want to do at the level you want to do it and learn from them. I told tihab when we were standing by the stage and said hey man. I want to work more with you. I want you to coach me. I want to learn from you see.
I found you're, never too old to learn and you're. Never too young to teach always have a thirst for learning. So i listened to paul harvey every day on the radio while in school i would go out and listen in his car.
He gave me his keys. I was working to develop myself and i continued to listen to motivational messages and he would take me to see the late. No, dr norman vincent field, who wrote the book the power of positive thinking.
I toured with him before he passed you. You have something special. You have greatness within you, don't. Allow your circumstances to determine who you are don &. # 39 t allow your negative thoughts to hold you back.
You you have something special you can do more than you could ever begin to. Imagine dr peel was an incredible man. I i admired him when he spoke. He gave me goosebumps. I can feel him in my heart and and i never forget we were coming back to the school and mr washington said mr brown.
Yes, sir, when dr peale spoke, you didn't move and he spoke. You were hanging on everywhere. He when he spoke, we didn ' T have to tell you to sit down and be quiet. Why i said sir, i could. I could feel him and he talked i felt like he was talking to me, sir.
He said he was, i said, but he doesn't know me, but he was speaking to you. Did you feel him in your heart? I said yes, sir. He said most people feel him in their head. If you felt him in your heart, he said: listen to him.
Son follow him, learn from him and i would go to seminars and workshops anywhere. I would find where dr peel was. I would be in the audience. I'll drive two and three hundred miles just to hear him speak and my dream and vision was was to share the stage with him.
I thought about it. What is your goal? What is your vision? I want you to hold it in mind. There's, some power in that, because when i became involved in speaking i never forget. I got a call from augmentino who wrote the book the greatest salesman in the world.
He said last, i'm, stuck in philadelphia need to be in kankakee, dr norman vincent fields. Appearing i can't make it. I heard you're in chicago, i said yes, i am, can you go and open? For me? I said yes, man, oh my god, dr peeler, i said yes, i'd love to do it and i went there and i came.
I said hi i'm. I'm les brown. He said you're, not the band right now, and i said no, i'm. I'm. Mrs mamie brown's. Baby boy, i'm here to speak, he said, come backstage and his wife martha was there and she said papa les brown is here the speaker and he said les brown les brown shoot for the moon, because, even if you miss your land among The stars, i said, sir, that's.
My quote, i wrote you when i was in the 11th grade. I was a part of a special special education class project that's. My quote, he said i know i in all my speeches with that quote now. Let me give you three steps to personal development.
Let's, get down to the nitty-gritty. What does it take to really make the changes starting tomorrow? It takes more than philosophical pronouncement. I know that it also takes more than enthusiasm. I know we're hearing a lot about enthusiasm these days, but see that just won't do the job we're still here on the old cliches of the 30s right to be enthusiastic.
You must act enthusiastic, but see that's, not going to help after you have leaped about. There are some things you got to do or it isn't going to change, see you can get all excited about lifting 200 pounds till you get to the gym and then you need a new excitement and the new excitement is called discipline.
Major step to human progress discipline: if there's, one thing to get excited over that's. It get excited over your ability to make yourself do the necessary things. What could you make yourself do starting tomorrow? That would change it all.
No tell now see that's, exciting on any given day. You can massively change the direction of your life. Murder is a clear example that any one person on any given day can forever alter the course of their life.
It just happens to be a negative act, but just as sure as you can commit a negative act, you can also commit a positive act and forever alter your life whenever you wish. Now that's, exciting and whatever that act might be, that changes your life, the guy finally takes a shotgun to his car and blows out.
Every window destroys every tire puts a hundred rounds in this shabby old thing, and he says i have driven this embarrassing thing for the last time, and not only will i never drive it again, nobody else will ever drive it again and he lets that.
Shuddering thing stand there for a while, as a monument to the day, he said today my life changes. Now who can do that anybody? When can you do it whatever day you pick now here's, the key to discipline start with the little disciplines, get excited over the little disciplines and get right on those, because those will lead to the big ones you can't Handle the big challenges in life unless you take on the little ones, make a list of all the things you can do, get right on those discipline yourself for those both for the results and for the muscle and for the practice.
So when life hands you some big challenges, you'll, be ready. You'll, have the muscle but see if you don't handle the small ones you can't take care of the big ones. Okay, here's, what else it takes for life change, self-motivation, key phrase: self-motivation i don't know why we call it self-motivation it's, really the only kind there is.
You got to motivate yourself because i found out you can't change people, they can change themselves, but you can't change them. Lord knows some. I've tried but see it won.'t work. People have to change themselves.
I learned some of those lessons early. I built a little sales organization way back in those early days. I'm 25 and i had some nice people. I said i'm, going to make these people successful. If it kills me, i almost died right, i mean you can't.
Do that? What is my outcome in this situation? It's about disciplining your emotions. You know some something as simple as food and eating is not about your your body as much as it is about your mind.
It's, getting command of your mind, to be able to choose actions that are in your own best interest. Look ain't no more talking. This is it if you really take your game to the next level and whatever it is sports life business whatever it is? Health? Listen to me very closely.
You got ta change that mindset, motivate doesn't mean to yell and scream and encourage no to motivate actually means to provide a motive. A reason why? Because you can come up with a question like what should i do? You're gonna end up with a long list? Self love is hey.
Look. I know you got a a test on Monday. You know, and i know you really want to go out with your friends and saturday night. You want to go out, but if you fail that test, you're, not going to feel good about yourself.
You know i just i love you too much to let you go out tonight, and so i realized like yo e. You sleep in you play video game. Don't lie to yourself, you, you are powerful, but you have some vices. So i started saying: okay e: you got to discipline yourself and it's.
For me to say for everybody you have to watch, you have to watch every single second, the path to strength and health and intelligence and happiness, but we get caught up in our patterns. So we want to get really sensitized acutely sensitized sensory acuity to whether what we're doing is working or not.
You don't have time that's, a lie, fault and responsibility. Do not go together, it sucks, but they don't. When something is somebody's fault, we want them to suffer, we want them punished. We want them to to pay.
We want it to be their responsibility to fix it, but that's, that's, not how it works, especially when it's, your heart, once you put away your phones and your computers and all that you have nowadays That's great.
We're up to date. You know you, but your brain is the only thing you have when you're, going through depression, so cast out the lies, burn them down. I can't swim. I'm negative buoyant go back again.
I can't swim, go back again, go back again, go back again. I got it an incessant fight that doesn't, stop against weakness and against temptation and against laziness. It's. A campaign of discipline. Never Give Up!
