Go Beyond …

Les Brown, a noted inspirational speaker, tells the story of one of his friends, a salesman, who was in financial trouble because sales were down. Les asked him, “How many phone calls are you making a day?” His friend answered, “Twenty five.”

Les didn’t hesitate with his advice. “Double them,” he said. “Make fifty. Or seventy-five. Or one hundred.”

The salesman answered, “Aw, man. that’s too much.”

“Too much!” replied Les. “You tell me that you are behind on your bills and then you say it’s too much. You know, one way to get back on your feet real quick is to miss two car payments. How can you say anything is too much when you have everything at stake?”

The advice Les Brown gave his friend needs to be heard by people everywhere. It’s amazing what we can do when we’re “hungry” for success. Most people who say “I’ve tried,” haven’t scratched the surface of their potential.

TODAY – why not make a commitment to achieve your personal best?

Motivation compels us to higher achievement.

When you set your mind to achieve something, you must allow yourself the opportunity to get it done. Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible.

Eddie Robinson once said; “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential? These are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”

  1. Jonathan, your advice is a source of both inspiration and comfort. This is the inspiration. While we each have potential and must press into it to succeed, there is also an element of having all we need to succeed if we use the talents and resources we’ve been given. There is the comfort.

    • Absolutely right Jane, and thank you for factoring in the “inspiration” and “comfort”.

      If we are willing to put in the work, and won’t throw in that proverbial towel, then we really can achieve anything in life. As outlandish as a lofty goal might seem to us today, over time, as we get closer, the reality of it becomes clearer.
