I read this book over a year ago. I mapped out some of my goals, dreams and fears. A year later, I have stepped out on my strong faith in God and Les Brown's encouraging words. He said if you want that higher paying job go for it. I have increased my salary by $12,000 in less than 2 years, no joke!!! Also, I am an aspiring vocalist/singer. I just recorded my first demo as of February 4th. I am serious, this book has made me believe in myself, has told me that life is so precious and why take your talents, gifts and dreams to your grave. Live your dreams!! I would recommend this book to anyone. Now my sister is reading it. I can go on and on. Trust my word, it is excellent!!! Thank you Les, God Bless You!!
