It’s true: Mindset does change everything. Having a healthy, positive mindset sets you up for success while having a negative mindset makes things even harder. Even if the situation you’re facing right now is a negative situation, having a hopeful, abundant mindset will set you up for positive change.
A lot of the times, we let the opinions of others dictate our mindset and ultimately our lives. If someone tells us that we’re not good enough, we start telling ourselves that we aren’t good enough. If someone encourages us about our work, then we work even harder because we know that we’re having a positive influence.
Too often, we let voices of negativity rule our lives. The world is a beautiful place, but not everything it tells you is true. Today, I want to encourage you to do two things: block out the negative voices and be a voice of positive change.
Mark Twain said, “The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.” I believe that to be true: Greatness isn’t measured in money. Are you changing someone’s life for the better? Are you standing up for positive change? Are you tapping into an abundant mindset?
My guest today personifies greatness in his integrity and the positive impact he’s had on the world. His name is Les Brown, and I’m so excited for you all to hear from him today.
In elementary school, Les was mistaken declared “educable mentally retarded.” Teachers did not recognize the potential of little Les Brown — the same person who would become of the world’s most renowned motivational speakers. Using determination, persistence, and belief, Les unleashed a course of amazing achievements including broadcast station manager, political commentator, and multi-term state representative in Ohio.
As one of the world’s most renowned motivational speakers, Les Brown is a dynamic personality and highly-sought-after resource in business and professional circles for Fortune 500 CEOs, small business owners, non-profit, and community leaders from all sectors of society. For three decades he has not only studied the science of achievement, but he’s also mastered it by interviewing hundreds of successful business leaders and collaborating with them in the boardroom translating theory into bottom-line results for his clients.
