I love Les Brown and I listen to his speeches and have bought some of his previous books. To me it seems that if you listen to enough Les, eventually it will become redundant. And you can't blame him I mean there's only so much new material you can come up with from your past over the course of 30+ years of doing motivational speeches but...yeah. If you're new to Les Brown or haven't really heard much of his material (or if you have OCD and want to have a complete collection of Les Brown books) then I would recommend. Otherwise, not so much...
This book is so simple. Choose 4 things you know you can get done today. I think it's easy, as a mom especially, to get bogged down in the minutiae of daily momming. When you homeschool, even more so. What did I get done today? I sharpened a pencil 87 times. But the simple act of writing down, 4 things. Just 4. You KNOW you can do 4 things. Somebody's going to nap. There will be silent reading time. When the kids are out riding scooters, I can cut out the pieces of the next quilt block. There's that peaceful 45 minutes between when I get up and when they do, and when they go to bed and when I do. And how accomplished you feel after having planned them and FINISHED them! I mean, it's just such a simple idea, but it so totally works on your self-confidence and self-worth. Every mom needs this.
Les Brown's story is inspiring. I love the way he weaves his story with the lessons he learned. It is positive, offering much advice on making your dreams come true. On page 184 under the heading "Hold the Upper Hand," he shows you how positively charged people hold the upper hand. In two lists he shows you the negative charged attitude and the positively charged attitude. I found it helpful to see the contrast. This book covers many topics that are holding us back in fulfilling our dreams. I am reading black authors this month and this is by far the best book I read. The end of the book contains a "Live Your Dreams Action Planner." This is a book I will read again! Watch Les Brown on YouTube he is a fabulous speaker and motivator.
I just received my book- it is not too big, nor too small. I can take it with me if needed, or tuck it into my book basket or Bible cover and keep in the living room. I plan to begin each day with it (which is why it will probably remain near my Bible????), and hopefully it will keep me connected to, and answering to, my daily goals/objectives!
I'm a big Les fan, so the thing is, as also an audio owner of his works, he does a great job as a leader and speaker. Coming from his background and facing his issues and life challenges. He's got some great accomplishments here as well as making it as far as he has. A good read and excellent book to have for your own reference or to pass on to help a friend.
I've worked for over nine years and have become successful at my career. I also just completed an MSc. in Information Systems Management at 27 years but have found myself unsatisfied. The dissatisfaction not from my lack of achievement because I found myself wanting more and feeling like I still didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I'm only in Chapter one but I'm profoundly impressed with the content of this book, I can't put it down and continue to be mid blown by the nuggets of wisdom shared like "Tough times don't last, tough people do" and "There comes a time when you have to drop your burdens in order to fight for yourself and your dreams". I can say now that I'm at a turning point in my life and I'm happy I was told about this book.
This adorable little book is so simple, but so full of wisdom! It really did calm me right down and make me feel, not just as though I have a handle on things today and tomorrow, but that today and tomorrow can be made interesting and happy. It helps you dispense with thought clutter and focus on what matters. Plus there are fun little coloring bits, just enough to lift the spirits and easily accomplish in a sitting. I love it.
