It is great when you can dream and visualize about the future, but that it not enough.
You have to chase your dreams and turn them into reality. Here is a video which will motivate you to do just that.
Les Brown is truly one of the best motivational speakers.
Motivational Video: Chase Your Dreams
Transcripts of the Video:
My hero, that’s who i chase.
Now when I was 15 years old, I had a very important person in my life come to me and
say “Who’s your hero?” and I said, “I don’t know, I gotta think about that, give me a
I come back 2 weeks later, this person comes up and says “Who’s you hero?”
I said, “I thought about it, you know it is?
I said it’s me in 10 years.”
So you see, every day, every week, every month, and every year of my life, my hero’s always
10 years away, I’m never going to be my hero, I’m not going to attain that, I know I’m not,
and that’s just fine with me, because that keeps me with somebody to keep on chasin’.
I don’t know what that dream is that you have, I don’t care how disappointing it might have
As you’ve been working toward that dream, but here’s what I know: that dream that you’re
holding in your mind, that it’s possible.
See, sometimes we can’t say “I can do that”, But what we can say, is that it’s possible
that I can have my dream, as we run toward it, as we work on it, day in and day out.
No one ladies and gentlemen, could have convinced me when I started out.
Just over 6 years ago, working on my dream, and I want you to think about whatever you
Because I was willing to take a chance and most people wont do that.
Most of the people that you talk to, to try and bring them into the business, these are
Most people have done all that they’re ever going to do: they raise a family, they earn
a living, and then they die.
But people who are running toward their dreams, life has a special kind of meaning, and here’s
what I will share with you: that in the process of working on your dreams, you are going to
incur a lot of disappointment, a lot of failure, a lot of pain, a lot of setbacks, a lot of
defeats, but in the process of doing that, you will discover some things about yourself
that you don’t know right now, what you will realize is, is that you have greatness within
you, what you will realize is, is that you are more powerful than you could ever begin
to imagine, what you will realize is, is that you are greater than your circumstances, that
you don’t have to go through life being a victim.
But not only is it important that you believe and begin to know that it’s possible for you
to live your dream as you run toward it, but it’s necessary, that you work on yourself,
that you develop yourself.
It’s necessary that you get the energy drainers out of your life, people who don’t want anything,
people who are not striving, people who are not challenging themselves, people who aren’t
growing, people who have stopped dreaming, it’s necessary that you align yourself with
people and attract people into your business who are hungry, people who are unstoppable
and unreasonable, people who are refusing to leave life just as it is, and who want
My mother used to say, “Birds of a feather flock together, if you run around with losers,
you will end up a loser.”
It’s necessary that you get the losers out of your life if you want to live your dream.
It’s necessary to know that everybody won’t see it, that everybody wont join you, that
everybody won’t have the vision.
It’s necessary to know that, that a lot of people like to complain but they don’t want
to do anything about their situation, that you’re an uncommon breed.
You know, you have to know within yourself, that I can do this, even if no one else sees
it for me, I’m going to see it for myself, that necessary.
It’s also ladies and gentlemen, necessary, that you be creative when you’re working on
your ideas, that you understand the importance of changing up, of readjusting your strategies.
Many time we can have a great idea, but if you’re not advancing it in the right way and
thing don’t happen, you become discouraged and begin to think the idea doesn’t work,
That is you, that is you, that no one can do it for you but you.
And even though face disappointments, even though you will experience some setbacks,
it goes with the territory, you must understand that.
What if all of us took that attitude, after we’ve faced a rejection and no, or we have
a meeting and no one shows up, or somebody says, “You can count on me!”, and they don’t
What if we had that kind of attitude, the cars repossessed, nobody believes in you,
you’ve lost again, and again, and again, the lights are cut off, but you’re still looking
at your dream, reviewing it everyday and saying to yourself: IT’S NOT OVER UNTIL I WIN.
