Your life is powered by you. I love that phrase. Les Brown lays it out for us.
Your life is powered by you. You got a dream, an idea, you gotta take responsibility to make it happen. Your dream, your life, going to the next level will be powered by you. Don’t put your destiny in anyone else’s hands. No one is going to care more about your dream than you. Nobody is going to work on your stuff more than you.
That’s so true. However, the other point in this video may be even more important. You have to share your dream with others. I often fall into the trap of not discussing my goals with others. It’s so easy to say that everyone has their own issues and that no one wants to hear about my hair brained ideas. However, that’s really a defense mechanism that is slowing down progress.
Les says, “if you have been running into a wall – it doesn’t mean that you can’t get through. It means that you to find someone who is on the other side or find someone who knows someone on the other side.”
This is a great video on passion, persistence, and perseverance. Les adds a couple more Ps – people and projects. Those are the sharing Ps and of course, it’s powered by you.
