So you’ve got to look at your dreams and goals and if you’ve been running into a wall it doesn’t mean that you can’t get through, it means that you need to find someone who’s on the other side or find someone who knows someone who’s on the other side.  I wanted to be on the Robert Schuller Program.  When I saw Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, when he was alive and he was interviewed, I said I’m going to be on the Robert Schuller Program.  I called them.  “Hi, my name is Les Brown.  I’d like to be interviewed by Dr. Schuller.”  “Do you have a book?”  “No, I don’t.”  “Well, have you done anything of any national significance?”  “No, I haven’t.”  “Are you know well?”  “No, but if you bring me on, I’m a good guest and I will become known then.  That’s the idea.”  “I’m sorry, we’re not in the business of making people celebrities.  When you write a book or do something of some national consequence, let us know.  It’s no guarantee, but let us know.”  I said, “Okay.” Remember, I said, you’ve got to have passion and drive and you’ve got to have persistence and perseverance and people and projects.  What do you mean projects?  Well, that was the big deal to be on Robert Schuller’s Program.  How do we discover our greatness?  By upgrading our relationships and by having goals that’s beyond our comfort zone.  Why?  Because it causes you to reinvent yourself.  Brian Tracy calls it “The Danger Zone.  You want to do something you’ve never done, so being on his program was a big deal for me. I kept telling people with conviction.  I’m going to be on the Robert Schuller Show.  “When?”  “I’m not exactly sure.  Do you know Robert Schuller?”  “No I don’t.”  “Do you know anyone who knows Robert Schuller?”  “No, I don’t.”  I was persistent and I continued to persevere.  Here’s something.  Write this down, next “P.”  Powered by you.  If you’ve got an idea?  Do you have a dream?  Ladies and gentleman, you’ve got to take responsibility to make it happen.  Your dream, your life going to the next level will be powered by you.  Don’t put your destiny in anybody’s hands.  Nobody is going to care more about your dream than you, nobody.  Nobody’s going to work on yourself more than you. So, I continued to tell people.  One weekend, a Saturday evening, I was flying from Detroit to Chicago.  Maybe about five passengers on board.  I’m sitting next to a guy, I introduce myself to him, named Lafayette Jones.  “Hi, my name is Les Brown.”  “Hi, I’m Lafayette Jones.”  “Guess what man?”  “What.”  “I’m going to be on the Robert Schuller Program.”  “Is that right?  When?”  “I’m not exactly sure.  Do you know anybody who knows Robert Schuller?”  He said, “Yes.”  I said, “Who?”  “Well, Mr. Johnson that I work for.”  “You’re kidding.  How does he know him?”  “He donated a million dollars to his ministry.”
