Step 1

It will be very hard to change the way you interact with others or to gain their respect if you don’t think you can be more than you are right now.

Go to the video icon above to see a really good argument from the film 'La La Land.'

Tell us what you think about the clip when you've finished watching it.

Step 2

Mia says, “Maybe I'm just not good enough.” That's not a good thing.

How often do tell yourself that?

Step 3

Now watch the 2nd clip from Les Brown.

Step 4


How you see yourself is going to influence every area of your life. If you see yourself as 'not good enough', then you've argued for your limitations as Mr. Brown said.

Why do that?

Go back to who you are. Start there. List every good quality about yourself, everything someone has complemented you on, everything you like. Argue FOR yourself in the space below.

Step 5

Mr. Brown's words of wisdom:

* "Someone's (negative) opinion of you does not have to become your reality."
* "If you argue for your limitations, you get to keep them."
* Say to yourself, "I deserve the best that life has to offer."
* "I deserve to find my purpose."
* Be Bold
* Whenever you decide to go to the next level, there's going to be turbulence. Fasten your psychological, mental and spiritual seatbelt."
* "There's going to be up times and down times. In the down moments, that's when you discover who you are. In the prosperous times, put it in your pocket. In the lean times, you put it (lessons/determination) in your heart, and that's when you discover who you are."

Did any of Mr. Brown's comments help you? Inspire you? Which one(s)?

Step 6

Have you been arguing for your limitations by the way you treat people or let them treat you?

Step 7

How can your actions prove what's best about you?

Step 8

Today your challenge is to prove you won't allow yourself to be held back. Agreed?
