In this episode, Les Brown shows us that success is first established in mind. It starts with your thoughts, and in particular, having a clear vision about what you want to achieve.

According to Les, we can’t control the thoughts that come into our minds, but we can control the thoughts that we dwell on. This highlights his firm belief that our thoughts have power and influence over our lives.

However, vision alone does not guarantee outstanding achievements and success. Les says that there must be on your part a willingness to do what is required. Struggles and mistakes will pile up, but all these are part of growing. After all, to live life to the fullest is to experience it as a whole. Nevertheless, he reminds us that anything worth doing is worth doing badly.
