    "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

    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

    Are you a spectator in your own life? Do you sit on the sidelines planning, thinking, trying, but never fully doing? How many days have been paved with good intentions but no follow-through? Today, choose to believe in and explore the power of your own engagement. This means to fully connect to your calling and passion in life. Lean into it. Pursue it every day ~ despite the distractions in your life, or in spite of any perceived limitations. Decide to live far beyond any past regrets or future excuses. DETERMINE to find a way or make a way. GO FOR IT!! Choose to be unstoppable in pursuit of your GREATEST life! ~ Les Brown

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


    Laugh out loud at life. It is good medicine for your heart and spirit. It is a way for you to say "Life, I am still standing with my head up high." Laughter strengthens the immune system and increases your capacity to cope. It has the power to heal you at the cellular level. Sometimes all you can do is laugh, even through your tears and pain. When you are overwhelmed, laugh at your bills, your body, your kids, or at any unexpected challenge of life. This is not denying what is in your life. It is defying it! One minute of anger weakens the immune system for 4-5 hours, while one minute of laughter boosts it for over 24 hours. So try this...make silly faces in the mirror, laugh from down deep and bring out the child in you! Find some popcorn, get a few family, friends together and allow yourself to really laugh. Interrupt your worries and choose to make yourself feel good in spite of it all. You Deserve It.  You Have GREATNESS In You!!!  ~ Les Brown


    Know who YOU are, always follow your spirit, and live a beautiful life.
