Les Brown: BUILDING WEALTH ( Les Brown Inspiration )


So here’s the first step to accumulating
well if you expect to do it write this down you must be willing to do the
things today others won’t do in order to have the things tomorrow others won’t
have that’s why the book of life said the road to life is straight and narrow
and few there be that find it because fuel there will be that are willing to
do the things today others won’t do in order to have the
things tomorrow others won’t have what are the things that others won’t do
number one make discipline a major force in your life how many of you know if
you’d have been more disciplined you’d be further along to reach your goals
right now Socrates said the undisciplined life is an insane life the
road to life is straight and narrow because few there be that are willing to
discipline themselves here’s something else that most people won’t do make it
okay to fail a lot of people 85% of people allow their fear of failure to
outweigh their desire to succeed repeat after me please anything that’s worth
doing is worth doing badly
yes anything is worth doing is worth doing right as we have been taught if
you know how to do it but if you don’t know how to do it is worth doing badly
until you get it right I bet you and I wasn’t there I bet you that when Bishop
TD jakes first stood up to preach when he gave his trial sermon he did not have
a command he did not have the mastery he did not have the confidence he did not
have the depth he did not have the capacity to translate and milk scripture
like he did last night when he first started out now write this down you
don’t have to be great to get started but you have to get started to be great the first time I set up the speak I
stood up and my mind set down I looked at the audience and I panicked I had to
introduce the play at school we’ll pumped about the story ran off mr.
Washington mr. Brown where you going on mr. wash and I I can’t think I don’t
know did you rehearse yes sir I did well what’s wrong why did you say you’re Liza
I don’t know Sal I just I’ve got it then I looked at them and everything let me
let me do it another day please sir no go back up there mr. Brown mr.
Washington how miss appley circle don’t don’t don’t send me out there now I’ll
mess up mr. Brown if you run now you will always be running anything that’s
worth doing it’s worth doing badly until you get it right why are you moving like
that I got to go to the bathroom sir mr. Brown go back out there yes sir we’ll
start a play call 12 Angry Men directed by mr. Leroy Washington now ran off the
next day hey alfalfa they dogged me out they talked about me
so bad the next time another event came up mr.
washer mr. Brown you were up I said no mr. Washington everybody says no not him
I said there right mr. Washington not me he said mr. Brown you are up yes sir and
I went out and pretty soon when people laughed at me didn’t bother me they
would throw paper and I can catch it without losing my concentration and then one day I came out and a hush
went across the audience because it must have been something about me that
indicated that I had come to myself and mr. Washington had been practicing with
me to give a presentation and I looked at the audience and I said I choose not
to be a common man it’s my right to be uncommon if I can
I seek opportunity not security I do not wish to be a kept citizen humbled and
dull by having the state look after me I want to take the calculated risk to
dream and to build to fail and to succeed I refuse to live from hand to
mouth I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence the thrill of
fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia I will never cower before any master nor
been to any threat it’s my heritage to stand erect proudly unafraid the face to
boldly and say this I have done girl stood up say that’s my boy fairy I like me some that’s brown baby but I just got off like that you have
something special you have talents and abilities in you that you don’t even
know so how do we begin to create wealth let me give you some some ideas number
one write this down knowledge what knowledge that you have in this economy
part of what we need that people are willing to pay you for that next is
talent what talent Deon’s talents playing
football I didn’t have that as a talent my talent is talking to me that my
definition of success is doing what you love to do and find somebody to pay you
to do it so I find people to pay me to talk I talk I bought a game to this you
to this country called beard Wits that I invented and as I talk I shoot pool I
sipped if I make you tear up your cars break your fuel stick because I talk a
lot of trash I throw you off you’ve never been to Boston I’ll take you there
so I learned how to signify talk trash all right it’s not make a living talking
trash 280 I make more in one hour than ninety percent of the American public
earned working for a whole year doing what I love to do that I’ve developed my
talent you want to master your talent find out what it is that you love to do
I love to talk scripture is another key that says to us
and what we need to do to begin to develop ourselves
Luke 1234 where your treasure is there will your heart be also so what do you
love to do and then explore ways in which you can earn a living doing that
cooking writing painting working with numbers working with people the other
thing is not only must you have knowledge talent some skill but the
other thing that’s important faith to act on whatever your dream is see if you
don’t believe in yourself how many people you know that have a lot of
talent a lot of abilities but they don’t believe in themselves raise your hands
cf faith is very important so the faith to act on those dreams those desires
your scripture that I that I like very much
proverbs 16 sixteenth chapter third verse commit thy works unto the Lord and
I thoughts shall be established commit means to carry into action deliberately
commit means to make it happen no matter what commitment the difference between
next time you have bigger names the chicken was involved the pig was
committed he had to give it all up that’s gonna take a minute to sink in
all right see when you make a commitment I’m going to become wealthy when you
make it important when you decide I’m gonna do it no matter what life changes
for you see most people don’t keep their commitments to their commitments that’s
why they lead lives of poverty lives of misery lives of unhappiness Socrates
said the uncommitted life isn’t worth living
it’s a part of what you must do whatever commitment or whatever covenant you make
with God while you’re here to go back to be a better father to go back to make a
difference in the community to go back to change your life to decide not to
ever to use drugs or alcohol again to decide to death that you’re going to
begin to recreate yourself that you’re going to be reborn to a new state of
consciousness whatever commitment that you make keep your commitment to your
commitment no matter what if it’s hard then do it hard but keep your commitment
to your commitment and then it says that works see now most people look at that
commit that works most people look at activity that one engages in to achieve
a predetermined objective but works commit thy works it pluralized as an S
they’re learned this from Bishop you got to watch these things in Scripture just
can’t go on the surface there’s an S then say commit that work whatever task
whatever talent whatever skill whatever knowledge you have and begin to make
money doing that making a difference impacting people’s lives but commit that
work so there’s two kinds of work there’s external work activity that
you’re engaged in and there is internal work now why is that important Pharisees
said to Jesus wind chill the kingdom of God come that came of God coming out by
observation they shall say it’s neither low very low here behold the kingdom of
God within you it’s within you seek ye first the kingdom and all these things
will be added unto you wealth good relationship peace of mind good health
better community whatever you want to desire a more powerful ministry so the
work is internal as well as external so therefore number one is first step is
you got to live your calling you got to decide what is it you love second thing
is you’ve got to work on yourself write this down under work on yourself
you don’t get in life what you want you get in life what you are you have a
ministry and you have 300 people as a reflection of you you have 2,000 that’s
a reflection of you you have a job you’re generating 1,200 dollars a year
or $2,000 of $500,000 whatever you earn whatever you’re producing in your life
is reflection of you that’s why says judge a tree by the fruit it bears I can
look at what you’re producing and I can tell you a lot about who you are and if
you look at people who are living below their potential and sinning and sin and
the Aramaic language means falling short of the mark I asked the question earlier
how many of you have goes the raise your hands how many of you know if you had
you like to live over again you can do more than what you’ve done the majority
of us raise our hands then that was an indication that was testimony to reflect
the fact that you are palade operating below your potential that’s a sin
here in my father glorified that ye bear much fruit then just say fruit much
fruit see when you leave here you’ve got to make a commitment to be more fruitful
for thee to be more productive to make greater impact so what will allow you to
do that you got to spend time working on yourself
in order to do write this down in order to do something you’ve never done you’ve
got to be someone you’ve never been in order to do something you’ve never done
you’ve got to be someone you’ve never been that’s why scripture says you must
be born again you’ve got to die as you are now
you’ve got to be willing to give up who you are now for what you can become certain things will no longer fit into
your life there’s no place for it in order to do something you’ve never done
you’ve got to be someone you’ve never been so you got a spin serious time
reading writing your goals down reading scripture anchoring yourself spiritually
to handle the storms of life because they’re going to come
you’ve got to read things that will help to develop your mind your consciousness
your attitude
