"If you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful."
"You can die in the bleachers or you can die on the field, so you might as well get on the field of life and have a good time!" Les Brown
"Imagine, if you will, being on your death bed –
And standing around your bed –
are the ghosts of the ideas, the dreams, the abilities
and talents given to you by life.
Now, imagine that you, for whatever reason, never acted on those ideas;
you never pursued that dream, you never used those talents, we never saw your leadership, you never used your voice, and you never wrote that book.
And here they are standing around your bed
looking at you with large angry eyes, saying, 'we came to you, and only you could have given us life!
And now we must die with you. Forever!'
The question is –
if you died today, what unused ideas, what dreams, what abilities, what talents and what gifts, would die with you?" – Les Brown.
