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…”

LES BROWN IN LONDON 20-01-2018

In April 2015, I had the privilege to spend some time with the famous motivational speaker, Mr. Les Brown. I was with Les and his team while he delivered one of his great speeches to more than twenty thousand people in Poznan, Poland. After his performance, we had some private time in his sky box in the stadium. While relaxing, and listening to other speakers, he asked me to tell him about myself. When I finished my story, he said:

“You are all about reinventing yourself.” Continue reading

Reinventing yourself…

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
George Bernard Shaw

In April 2015 I had a privilege to spend some time with famous motivational speaker Mr. Les Brown. I was with Les and his Team while he delivered one of his great speeches to more than 25.000 people in Poznan, Poland. I was so inspired by this event that I wrote a blog about it titled A day with a legend .

After his performance, we had some private time in his Sky Box at the stadium. While relaxing, and listening to other speakers he asked me to tell him about myself.

When I finished my story, he said: “you are all about reinventing yourself…”. Continue reading

We are all in a communication business

I am an investor. Most of the companies I invest in do have strong IT component. As you probably know IT people are not the best in communication.

About a week ago my business partner said something that stick to my mind. He said that we are in a communication business.

When I thought about it, I realized it is true not only for a business. I believe that our life is the communication business as communication is the way we translate our thoughts into something that can be received and understood by others. Continue reading

Paris

Paris!

Paris, the city of life, music, culture, food, love. City as multicultural as you can only imagine. Last year we have been there for Christmas with my family. Fabulous time!

Today Paris is all over the news. It is not news of life, music, culture, food, love. The news is about death and terror.

I feel sad and my thoughts are with all the innocent people who are not with us anymore and with the families and close relations, who will have to go further through life without them. All innocent people, no matter of color, religion, culture…

In my life philosophy I am always trying to look for good, even in events that are evil, negative. I must say that it is not easy today. What can be good in fact that a few lost souls indoctrinated by another few, whose values and goals are unclear, travel to one of the most beautiful cities in the World to kill many innocent people? This evaluation will have to wait till my sadness will weaken.

What it shows clearly is the well-known fight of opposites, the drama of life which takes place between the opposites. Les Brown said this well. “Life is a constant fight for territory. Once you stop fighting for what you want, what you don’t want will automatically take over”.

We can’t take health for granted as sickness is just around the corner, we can’t take good for granted as evil is just around the corner we can’t take life for granted as death is just around the corner…

Two days ago I wrote in the contexts of solving family conflicts that we should act according to 3 virtues: integrity, respect and love. Integrity requires from us to keep our values, respect requires from us to accept that other can have different values and love should help us to build the bridge which will allow us to have relation despite of differences. Wouldn’t it be great if we will learn to solve the conflicts based on these virtues?

But what to do if there is disrespect in place of respect and there is hate in place of love?

We have both right and responsibility to protect ourselves and our values, but we need to be careful.

In Poland we have a proverb: “he who lives by the sword shall die by the sword”. Therefore, we should beware of what we become while pursuing what we want to achieve!

Today my thoughts are with people of Paris. However, I am sure that this tragic event will not break down the city. In the end Paris will become even more the city of life, music, culture, food, love. City where people like my family will have fabulous time.

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
