I am so glad I found Les Brown.

In my opinion Les is one of the best motivational speakers around. Les is probably one of the most respected speakers in his field.

He has a genuine power for stimulating human potential. Les Brown’s uplifting messages have inspired millions of people around the world to make the most of their lives and go all out to fulfill their dreams.

I have been listening to Les on my phone in the gym for the last couple of years, and I must say his words are always so powerful and empower me to burn out those last few reps. I know his quotes will inspire YOU to much higher levels of personal achievement. So let’s dive straight in to a few of his classic quotes.  

  1. “Honor your commitments with integrity.”
  2. “Anytime you suffer a setback or disappointment, put your head down and plow ahead.”
  3. “Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.”
  4. “Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality.”
  5. “Forgive those who have hurt you.”
  6. “Forgive yourself for your faults and your mistakes and move on.”
  7. “Goals help you channel your energy into action.”
  8. “Accept responsibility for your own life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.”
  9. “All of us need to grow continuously in our lives.”

  11. “If you are carrying strong feelings about something that happened in your past, they may hinder your ability to live in the present.”
  12. “If you take responsibility for yourself, you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.”
  13. “It takes someone with a vision of the possibilities to attain new levels of experience. Someone with the courage to live his dreams.”
  14. “Just because fate doesn’t deal you the right cards, it doesn’t mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential.”
  15. “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

  24. “There are winners, there are losers and there are people who have not yet learned to win.”
  25. “Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.”
  26. “Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.”
  27. “You cannot expect to achieve new goals or move beyond your present circumstances unless you change.”
  28. “A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.”
  29. “Your smile will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you.”
  30. “We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives. We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance and truly begin to live our dreams.”
  31. “You take on responsibility for making your dream a reality.”
  32. “If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.”
  33. “Your ability to communicate is an important tool in your pursuit of your goals, whether it is with your family, your co-workers or your clients and customers.”
  34. “Your goals are the road maps that guide you and show you what is possible for your life.”

  1. “If you fall, fall on your back. If you can look up, you can get up.”
