From Library Journal
Brown, an up-and-coming motivational speaker, a.k.a. The Motivator, here offers his personal growth message in print. Once labeled educationally mentally retarded, he has been a sanitation worker, disk jockey, activist, state legislator, and night club emcee. Through his "Nine Principles of Life Enrichment," he proposes that anyone can succeed by stoking the fires of hunger for a dream. Brown's belief in our responsibility for our own success at times suggests a Pygmalion complex. Some of what Brown says can be found in a slightly different arrangement in Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Successful People ( LJ 3/15/90), Richard Gillett's Change Your Mind, Change Your World ( LJ 7/92), and Gilbert Brim's Ambition ( LJ 2/15/92). Having participated in four PBS specials, Brown may be familiar to many patrons. Public libraries should have this title in their self-help sections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/92.

Here are some memorable teachings I treasure:
-Always set goals. For today. For this week. For this month. For 3 months. For this year. For 5 years...
-The only thing that can really stop you from living your dreams is you.
-Whatever you have done up to this point is a reflection of what you believe you deserve and what you believe is possible for your life.
-People with limited visions of themselves can not possibly have a larger vision of you.
-Don't operate on the basis of what you see. Operate on the basis of the possibilities you envisioned.
I saved the best ones for last:
-Rule #1: Don't sweat the small stuff, Rule #2: It is all small stuff
-More important than anything else is the choice of our attitude. Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
-In the end, it is the person you become not the things you achieve, that is most important.
i would highly recommend this book to just about anyone.
My greatest dream was to be a great MOM and I have done that according to my children. I did not settle because I did not allow the divorce to be the end of me. GREAT READ
Les wraps each of his lessons into stories of actual people who have demonstrated the feasibility of his theories for success. His message throughout is to "take control of your life," and "say Yes to life." This book was written in 1992 but is timeless. His stories and lessons are not specific to any industry, business, or religious beliefs, and would be suitable for any reader--young adults included.
You may also want to read "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill and "The 17 Principles of Creating Wealth" by Phillip Collinsworth.
