Les Brown is someone I’ve watched and gone to see for years – He generates so much excitement when he speaks and is such a great source for inspiration and motivation!
Leslie (Les) and his twin brother Weslie were born in an abandoned building and were later adopted by Mamie Brown, a 38-year-old single woman. She was a hard worker and Les has always said that as a young man growing up – his motivation to earn a good living was his goal to purchase a home for his mother Mamie.
When Les was a young man he was given the label “mentally retarded” by his elementary school educators. Everything changed for him when he began to listen to a high school teacher and his mother who told him otherwise!
This video is 45 minutes long – I have a few friends who listen to it every morning before they begin their days work. It’s so good – the time seems to fly by and when you’re done you just feel better and happy and ready to go!
p/s He did buy his mother a home!
