I heard you in my heart


Les Brown is saying it correctly, that information is not enough. If information would be enough we all would be rich, skinny and healthy 😊

The good question is: what does it take to change information in inspiration?

The answer to this question I got from Les Brown last weekend in London. Les said something that will be for a long time with me.

He said: “I  heard you in my heart…”

Good Motivational Event – count me in!

Last week I’ve spent a day on a motivational event organized by a friend of mine in London. With speakers like Les Brown, Althea Grant, Dr. Stacie NC Grant, Steve Woody and Mindy Gibbins-Klein I knew it would be a great event.

But my time is precious so before I went I asked myself, why do I want to go there and invest my time in this event. Below are my thoughts, which I would like to share with you. Continue reading

A day with a legend

Life is giving me these special opportunities, special moments to be present on great events and to meet great people.  One of these special opportunities happened just a few days ago. On 30-4-2015 in Poznan, Poland I had the  privilege to be with Les Brown, Dr. Julie and their Team during a very powerful event ”Life without limits”.  With 25.000 people present on the stadium it was the biggest personal development event in Poland ever. As it was a powerful day for me I decided to write about the most important lessons I learned from it.


You could imagine that a person like Les Brown, a legendary speaker, does not need much in the form of preparation. So I was surprised when one of the first question asked was: What does this crowd need to hear? What should be the main message they need to receive?  These questions were asked to several people. I come from Poland, I should know what the people could need to hear. The message of hope, faith and responsibility for their own destiny. The message of opportunities, persistence and victory.   I knew all of that, but how to tell this to someone like Les within one sentence? Communication is an art!

Lessons learned:

  1. You can’t be over prepared!
  2. In the end it is not about the speaker but about the public needs and expectations that makes a speech a success or failure.

“Do not allow this what you want to say stand in the way of what people need to hear!” – Les Brown

The Team

Not in the spot light, but always busy, always alert, always organizing. Keeping an eye on all details. Time, activities, food, drink, rest etc., etc., etc. I never thought that so much happens during such a big event and you need to be well-organized. Without a good team the speaker cannot focus on the speech!

Lessons learned:

  1. To be able to focus on the speech you need to have someone capable watching your back.
  2. It is not only the speaker who deserves applause but also the people making it possible to have a speaker deliver the best.

“One man doesn’t make a symphony orchestra.” – Jim Rohn


Can someone like Les Brown feel the stress before going on stage? I have seen the crowd from the stage perspective. It was overwhelming. The responsibility is huge.  Just before going on stage I have seen Les with Dr. Julie getting focused. Getting into the energy.

Lessons learned:

  1. It is necessary to get focused and to get into the energy before going out there.
  2. It is great to have someone close, someone you trust to help you in getting focused.

“Where focus goes energy flows.” – Tony Robins


By being part of the team I looked at the speech Les was giving a bit different this time. I felt somehow part of the speech. I could see much better than before the changes in pace, changes in focus, getting the energy flowing, getting an alignment with the translator. The speech was great. As usually Les delivered a fantastic message. A message of hope, encouragement, responsibilities for our own life and the life of others.

Lessons learned:

  1. It is not the information that counts, it is the experience one can create on stage that makes the impact.
  2. A good speech is like old Jazz. You get the general line and then you use your skills, energy and interpretation trying to make it into something special, something unforgettable. It comes from your heart, not from your brain!

“If getting information would be sufficient we all would be wealthy, healthy and slim.” – Les Brown


Just after the speech ended we moved back to our Sky-box. I could see that the excitement, stress and focus was gone. After resting for a while Les started his evaluation questions. He did not asked how it was, he asked what we learned, what have we felt and what have we seen. We discussed several aspects of the speech, of the public’s reaction and technical aspects, including a drone camera getting very close to Les.

Lessons learned:

  1. The best time for the first evaluation is when the feelings and memories are fresh. When you can still feel the energy.
  2. You need to be very specific in asking questions if you want to learn something from what happened.

“Perfection doesn’t exist – you can always do better and you can always grow.” – Les Brown


After the speech I have seen different people coming to Les, telling him what was important in his speech for them. What I noticed is that he was very warm and very open to everybody. He was listening and time to time gave his feedback or comments. Always uplifting, always positive. One moment a young man from the organization come with his younger sister. She wanted to thank Les for telling his “twin brother story” as she felt that she was living in the shadow of her big brother.  Les not only listened to her and gave her very uplifting message, he also asked if the parents of the two where nearby and he invited their parents to the Sky-box. When the parents arrived he made them shine by telling how fantastic their kids were and how well they have done by raising such fantastic kids. It was incredible to see it.

Lessons learned:

  1. Your message on the stage should be consistent with who you are!
  2. It is very important to create a special experience for people not only on the stage, but also in your daily life.

“I think of myself as a catalyst of action and a messenger of hope, turning people onto themselves and turning people onto their dreams.” – Les Brown

It was an incredible day, which I will not forget. Not only have I learned a lot, but it gave me tons to think about. Being with people who really care about what happens on the ground in Nepal, people who are dreaming of raising half a million USD per day to fight poverty, people who care about other people, who want them to become better, to find their dreams and to go for them. It makes you wonder what my own purpose is. What I was born for? What kind of greatness is within me? I will have to figure it out but for now I would like to thank to Les Brown, Dr. Julie and their Team for sharing this day with me.

What cost are you ready to pay for finding and sharing your gift?

“We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.” – Marie Skłodowska Curie


Marie Skłodowska-Curie (7 November 1867 – 4 July 1934) was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and only woman to win twice, the only person to win twice in multiple sciences. She did in the world dominated by men. To find and to share her gift she offered her life as she died due to aplastic anemia brought on by exposure to radiation…


You have a voice and story to share…

Sometimes you need to be in the right place and time to get the message and become inspired. For me it was during the National Achievers Congress in Amsterdam when I have seen Les Brown for the first time life on stage. I had heard his speeches before, but being part of an event and seeing Les was something else. He is a Master of Voice. I remember that during his speech he said that we have a voice and stories to share. This few words struck me. I do have a voice and I do have a story to share. A story that can inspire, a story that can help others.

How many young people now are moving from country to country? Often for a good reason and motivation, but often not. How many struggle to accommodate, to adopt and to create a good life?

It is my story, my journey and I can certainly share what worked and what did not work for me.

To do this I need to get out of my comfort zone. I need to learn how to communicate differently. To concur my fears.

Who can help me better than Les Brown and his Team?

I am on my way and I am very happy to be one of a group of very special people who have this privilege to be coach by Les and his Team. I am sure in the future I will be sharing more news about this training.

For now I will use the voice of Les Brown and finish with his famous:

You have greatness within you!

The seasons of life by Jim Rohn

The first book in “Good resources” must be my favorite one: The seasons of life by Jim Rohn.
This book is for me very emotional. It was my first book by Jim Rohn I read. I was also privileged to receive a dedication from him “Let’s be the best”.
It is a book for everybody. I love its language and wisdom. Can we expect light after darkness? Can we expect spring after winter? Can we reap what we did not plant? What should we do in the winter time? What should we do in the spring time and summer time? What to do when the harvest is poor and what to do if it is huge? It is a book I recommend to everybody. It reads easily and its wisdom stays with you for all the seasons.
