Are You Willing To Get A ‘Black-Eye’ For Your Dreams!

I recently came across a poem that truly describes the passion that I have behind my business.

Its by Les Brown, the motivational speaker and author of “Its Not Over Until I Win”. Gotta love the title. So many business professionals give up right when success is around the corner and slowly but surly they fall into the same patterns that created major obstacles for them in the first place.This book helps you remove those obstacles in order to WIN in life and in business.

The more and more I work my business the more I realize that this is quite possibly the hardest thing that I’ve ever done. Having the guts to work a business in a terrible economy, against social stigmas, and the exposed vulnerability of my deepest fears all make for a challenging way to make a living. But what else is new. Anything worth having is worth fighting for even though its conceptually simple but in practice very hard.

So each day my motivation to keep one foot in front of the other is to see all my dreams, goals, wishes, and aspirations unfold in front of my eyes sooner rather then later. I keep reminding myself that whatever it takes I will rise above all my problems, pain, tribulations, and worries in order to reach my destination.

What about you? Do you have an unshakable belief that your business can be the vehicle toward your long and bumpy road to success? One thing for sure there going to be a lot of fights. Some you will WIN and some you WON’T. You might get punched in the stomach and take a right hook to your eye. But the true measure of a champion is if he can get back up. Can he finish the fight. Can he stay in the ring long enough to WIN it all. Even through all cuts and bruises REAL Campaigns always remain standing at the end.

I hope that this poem inspires you like it did for me and that you will decided TODAY that your dreams are worth fighting for.


If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it,
to work day and night for it,
to give up your time, your peace, and your sleep for it . . .

if all that you dream and scheme is about it,
and life seems useless and worthless without it . . .

if you gladly sweat for it and fret for it and plan for it
and lose all your terror of the opposition for it . . .

if you simply go after that thing that you want with all of your capacity,
strength and sagacity,
faith, hope and confidence and stern pertinacity . . .

if neither cold, poverty, famine,
nor gout, sickness nor pain,
of body and brain,
can keep you away from the thing that you want . . .

if dogged and grim you beseech and beset it,
with the help of God, you WILL get it!

–Les Brown
