    Live life freely in love, know the various laws of life, and always continue to develop a positive character ~ Issa


    Believe in yourself right now ~ even though it may be hard. You do not have to be up, to look up. Do not allow yourself to be overwhelmed by darkness, surrounded by negativity or give in to despair. None of these things improve your life. Do not give yourself permission to feel sorry for yourself, or give up your power. Start right now to take massive action on your own behalf to move your life forward. You can do this! Keep your mind focused on the outcome you desire. It takes discipline of mind, heart and spirit to create your breakthrough. What you think about you bring about. Despite your circumstances and all of the challenges you are facing, know this. Now it is time for you to believe it! Make it happen. You have something special. You have GREATNESS within you! ~ Les Brown

    "Avoid head trash. Do not be a garbage can for anything that does not feed your intellect, stimulate your imagination, or make you a more compassionate peaceful person. Refuse to open your mind to other people's trash. Tune out anything that promotes conflict. This can infect you with a mind virus of cynicism or defeat and you will not even know it!  Be deliberate about setting up your day to win. Whatever you feed your mind in the first 30 minutes of the day, will impact the spirit of your day. Saturate yourself with positive words that fuel your energy and ignite your spirit. Your thoughts create your reality. Create an extraordinary life! You have GREATNESS within you!"  ~ Les Brown

    Lions do not have to roar. There is power in silence, confidence, and persistence. Those who work don't talk, and those who talk do not work. Handle your business. Measure your efforts by results. Focus your time, energy, and activity on mastering and executing a plan.  Avoid the energy draining practice of telling people what you're going to do. Instead, spend your time and effort in doing the things that are necessary to accomplish your goals. Keep your focus. and stay determined in order to pursue your dream. Let your work, not your words, speak for itself. You have GREATNESS within you! ~ Les Brown

    "Live life freely in love, know the various laws of life, and always continue to develop a positive character" ~ Issa


    Stop trying to change the people you love and change yourself! Stop trying to change people who take your money but will not take your advice. You will only drain your own mental, spiritual, emotional and financial reserves. The truth is...people change when they are sick and tired of being sick and tired or hit rock bottom.  If you are dealing with addiction or irresponsible behavior from grown adults ~ protect your wallet and your mind. It does not mean you do not love them. Your attempts to help may only delay what is inevitable. Allow them to take the journey they have chosen for themselves. Choose to let go of the guilt and be at peace. You may require counseling or emotional support to stop being an enabler. If necessary, give yourself some distance so that you can stop being used or manipulated because they know that you care and you love them. You have the right to enjoy a guilt-free, happy and productive life. Commit yourself to changing the only person you really can - YOU!! You have GREATNESS within you!! ~ Les Brown


    A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others ~ Ayn Rand via Les Brown
