This is the original video that encouraged and inspired me to keep going on my own ideas for business, my blogging, researching and writing of my own content and start carving out my own destiny years ago. Now, I am on my own way, following my own path, chasing my own dream, I get to do things that I never could imagine.
This is a classic clip of Les Brown doing what he does best – getting people fired up to be a better version of themselves.

Les Brown was born with his twin brother, Wesley, in a low-income section of Miami, Florida in an abandoned building. He was subsequently given up for adoption and adopted by Mamie Brown, a then 38-year-old single woman who worked as a cafeteria attendant and domestic assistant. He was declared “educably mentally retarded” while in grade school. Despite the obvious self-esteem issues this created, with the encouragement of his mother and assistance by a helpful teacher in high school, he learned how to reach his full potential, a key point in many motivational speeches he gives now.
As derived from many of Brown’s speeches, he first decided to get into public radio and kept returning to the same radio station time and time again looking for a break, and it wasn’t until the on-air failures of the afternoon DJ that he took his break in radio into his own hands and was hired full-time as on-air talent. Upon his termination from the radio station, he ran for election in the Ohio House of Representatives and won. After leaving the Ohio state legislature, he decided to get into television and eventually ended up on PBS. He also formed Les Brown Enterprises in order to support his newest career as a motivational speaker and is now also on KFWB in California on a daily syndicated radio program. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, he also won many local and national awards for excellence and he has an Emmy to his name.
In 1993, he began hosting a new talk show, The Les Brown Show, which began airing on September 6, 1993.
He has published several books and has also overcome personal difficulties including battling prostate cancer.
