Hello. how are you? How many of you have
some major goes you'd like to achieve?
Raise your hands, please! Very good!
I know, you do.
That's why you showed up. I like to ask
people whether or not they have goals
that they'd like to achieve it and
hopefully their goals that are really a
worthy of your efforts in your talents. I
want you to shake someone's hand right
now on your right and left. Look them in
the eyes and say you have something
I like to ask whether or not you have
goals but I want to ask you another
question. How many of you know that if
you had your life to live over again you
could do more than what you've done? Raise your hands, please.
Now, that proves a point that what we do
and what we accomplish in life is only a
tip of the iceberg of what's possible
for us. So, I want you to think about some
goals that you'd like to achieve and I'd
like for you to - let's say break them up
in three categories; Number one. I want
you to think about some personal goal
you'd like to achieve and I'd like for
you to think about some career goal some
business goal that you'd like to achieve.
And what you think about some social
contribution some impact you'd like to
make with your life. It was Harsman
who said "We should be ashamed to die
until we've made some major contribution
I believe we live in the greatest
country in the world that gives us an
opportunity to leave our mark to make a
statement with our lives. And as you
think about these goals, whatever those
goals are, I want you to dramatically
increase those goals and I want to warn
you! I don't want you to think about "how"
you're going to do it. "How" is none of
The most important thing is just to
increase those goals dramatically. I've
found that most people fail in life not
because they aim too high and miss. Most
people fail in life because they aim too
low and hit. And many don't aim at all. So
raise yourself and don't ask how
you're doing, how are you going to do it.
I'll never forget when I decided that I
wanted to become a motivational speaker
I saw the the late dr. Norman Vincent
Peale and and my heart said "I can do
that!" but my mind asked the question "how?"
and for over 14 years, for 14 years! I
would go see Zig Ziglar and Dr.
Norman Vincent Peale and Jim Rohn and
different speakers and I would be in the
audience and and my heart would pounce
and say "You can do that. You can do that,
Les!" Then when I would leave I would
be going to the parking lot and my mind
said "How you
to do it?" And I spent so many years
trying to figure out how I wasted 14
years. How many of you ever
procrastinated? Raise your hands, please.
Yes see, so, so, as you begin to think
about your goals the most important
thing is and (write this down) COMMIT
YOURSELF! See, once you commit yourself
the "how" will come. The way will come. once
you commit yourself you will then figure
it out. And if you're going to the wrong
direction all you have to just turn
around and go in the other direction. You
will figure it out you want to begin to
just challenge yourself. You want to
stretch yourself. Because, you really
don't know what you can't do.
