Les Brown: Control Your Destiny

Les Brown - Control Your Destiny

Les Brown talks about his rough upbringing and urges you to have the courage to chase your dreams and take control of your own destiny.

Transcript:


"My mother was ill. I'm adopted. I was hungry. I had to go on. Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm. Living your dream, changing your behaviors, overcoming negative habits. It's challenging. And then there goes a second, there goes another second, there goes another second, and we can't stop and hold time. And before you know it you wake up one day and you're behind on your dreams. If you don't develop the courage to do that which has been given you do to, and you spent a lot of time going around trying to convince other people or trying to get their approval, what will happens is that you will lose your nerve, and other people will convince you that what you're doing doesn't have any value. Most of us go to our graves still holding on rather than releasing it. As you begin to develop and expand your skills and your talents and your vision of yourself, you will always be in control of your destiny."

She asks the questions no one dared ask: Why did Snoop and Tupac have a falling out? Did Snoop betray Tupac to save himself?

Any parent knows that going anywhere with a toddler can be a daunting experience. Trips to the grocery store can quickly feel like you're competing in a grueling Olympic sport.

So imagine how much higher the stakes are when you try traveling with your toddler? It can be downright exhausting, especially if you're doing it solo.

Not only are you dealing with the near-impossible task of keeping your young child quiet, well-behaved, and entertained but you're also trying to navigate all of the stuff that comes along with them, like a stroller, extra luggage, and a car seat.

For single mom Zephaniah Henry, her first time flying with her two-year-old son, Asaph, was overwhelming.

While most people turned a blind eye (while likely simultaneously praying that they weren't sitting anywhere near the duo) one male passenger decided to do something about it. His response is going viral.
