I’ve recently met my Role-model Less Brown. I listened to his speeches for years while driving in my car. His speeches always reignited my passion and triggered my positivity and optimism in me, even more (Yes, that’s possible).
Since the late 90’s Less Brown was one of the few African-American Speakers, who not only talked about success, but also walks his talk. He’s been there and done that: working himself up from poor homeless guy to a multimillionaire.
My takeaways from his speech:
- You have Greatness in You
- You have to be Hungry (and go for what you believe in)
- The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we hit it
- Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality.
- Put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness.
- Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.
