- Joan Didion
This speech by Les Brown emphasizes on having the respect and faith in oneself to cultivate the courage to commit to the endeavours even when no one is by your side and neutralizing the negative influences in one's life.
We need to stand up for ourselves and rather than just taking things that come along the way with a hopeless demeanor , we should confront our problems head on and fight for what is ours.
In his book 'As a Man Thinketh', James Allen beautifully compares the mind to a garden which when not tended to results into detrimental weeds.
To grow beautiful flowers in a garden, it needs to be properly taken care of and regularly exposed to weed control techniques.
Similarly, We need to tend to our minds by carefully analyzing the negative influences which restrain us in making the necessary growth in our lives and weeding them out of our lives to have a productive life.
