If I had to rank my favorite motivational speakers, Les Brown is definitely in the Top 10! He is one of the world’s most renowned motivational speakers and his speeches have impacted a lot of people. His dynamic personality, his motivational words and passionate delivery are the things that make people enjoy his speeches. As a motivational speaker, author and politician, Les Brown got international recognition when he started energizing people to shake off mediocrity, fight against the challenges of the world and live up to their greatness. He wants to transform the world through his inspirational speeches. 

Here are some of his most inspirational quotes on success, life and greatness:

Other people’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality.

Do what is easy and your life will be hard. Do what is hard and your life will become easy.

It has been said, most people die at age 25 and don’t get buried until they are 65. Make an effort to live your life to the fullest.

Don’t let the negativity given to you by the world disempower you. Instead give to yourself that which empowers you.

You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.

If you are carrying strong feelings about something that happened in your past, they may hinder your ability to live in the present.

Be willing to go all out, in pursuit of your dream. Ultimately it will pay off. You are more powerful than you think you are. Go for it.

Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.

Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit.

If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dream.

Live out of your imagination instead of out of your memory.

Your dream was given to you. If someone else can’t see it for you, that’s fine, it was given to you and not them. It’s your dream. Hold it. Nourish it. Cultivate it!

Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.

If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.

Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars.

If you fall, fall on your back. If you can look up, you can get up.

If you don’t program yourself, life will program you.

You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.

What we do and accomplish is only the tip of the iceberg of what’s possible for us.

Life has no limitations, except the ones you make. 

When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up.

Don’t let the negativity given to you by the world disempower you. Instead give to yourself that which empowers you.

If you run around with 9 losers pretty soon you’ll be the 10th loser.

If you do not develop the hunger and courage to pursue your goal, you will lose your nerve and you will give up on your dream.

Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.

When it comes to success, it will come when it comes. A delay does not mean a denial.

The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow are the “buts” you use today.

Goals help you channel your energy into action.

You need to make a commitment and once you make it, then life will give you some answers.

By reading and applying Les Brown’s quotes to our day to day lives, we get the strength to work harder and never give up on the things that we want in life.
