Victory In Life with Les Brown

What is the purpose of life? Since life began on planet Earth, men and women have asked such a question. What is your purpose? I challenge you today, to ask yourself, What is the purpose of your life?

Find the purpose of your life, and then follow it.

I had the pleasure and honor to interview a great man recently, who has influenced me in my life. Les Brown, along with a handful of other men and women have impacted my life and my ability to change it’s course, by changing my way of thinking.

What you think is what you become.  We were not born with a manual handed to us at birth, on how to live a successful life, and how to master what is most often, our greatest adversary–our mind. As such, it should be the goal of every person to rise above ourselves, to discover our life purpose, and to leave our mark in the world before we die. I suggest that that mark should be one that advances not only ourselves, and our friends, family and loved ones, but also–the Earth, and all living things on it as a whole.

The following speech–like all of the speeches by Les Brown, should give you some idea of his own greatness, which is helping to teach others to find their own.

I encourage you to listen to it, to explore our exclusive interview with him here in this new issue (Art of Success Page), and explore the other new articles through the Table of Contents tab to the left of this screen on your computer, or down below if you are on your phone.

Be sure to see our just added exclusive interview with TV legend Donny Most; Ralph Malph from Happy Days, who is so much more than this unforgettable role.

I hope that our creation here in at least some small or greater way adds to the value of your life, and helps you to learn and grow. Let us know what you want to see, hear, read, and what you think. Call us at 310-226-7176 and leave a message, and we might even make your words or message published for the world to hear.

Thank you for being here, and remember, as Les Brown says, “It’s Possible” to live your dream.

And the Oscar Goes to…Shape of Water and Guillermo del Toro

Greta Gerwig and Laura Dern present the Oscar® for best documentary feature to Bryan Fogel  & Dan Cogan  for work on “Icarus” during the live ABC Telecast of The 90th Oscars® at the Dolby® Theatre in Hollywood, CA on Sunday, March 4, 2018.  Photo credit: Todd Wawrychuk / Bill Barnes / (c). 2018, A.M.P.A.S..

A flawless Oscar® show was held tonight, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who did a great job.  Inclusion was the theme of the show, as well as commentary on the Me Too movement, with women strongly vocal about standing up for equal pay, fair treatment, and an end to sexual harassment.

Shape of Water won best picture, written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, who also won best director, for this year’s 90th Academy Awards. Congratulations to all of this years winners.

Guillermo del Toro made a heartfelt statement during  his acceptance speech for best picture, stating,  ” …I am an immigrant like Alfonso and Alejandro, my compadres. Like Gael, like Salma and like many, many of you. And in the last 25 years, I’ve been living in a country all of our own. Part of it is here, part of it is in Europe, part of it is everywhere. Because I think that the greatest thing our art does and our industry does is to erase the lines in the sand. We should continue doing that when the world tells us to make them deeper.” 

He made an acceptance speech for his win for best picture, partially stating,  ” I want to dedicate this to every young filmmaker, the youth that is showing us how things are done. Really they are. In every country in the world. And I was a kid enamored with movies, and growing up in Mexico I thought this could never happen. It happens. And I want to tell you, everyone that is dreaming of a parable–of using genre or fantasy to tell stories about the things that are real in the world today, you can do it. This is a door, kick it open and come in. Thank you very much.”

Frances McDormand: Inclusion Rider 

Frances McDormand won Best Actress in s Motion Picture for “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri,  bringing great applause for her acceptance speech, in which she stated, ” We are a bunch of hooligans and anarchists but we do clean up nice.”…  She then asked all of the female nominess from every category to stand up, and then later stated, “Okay, look around everybody. Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. Don’t talk to us about it at the parties tonight. Invite us into your office in a couple days, or you can come to ours, whatever suits you best, and we’ll tell you all about them. I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider.”

Academy members from each of the 17 branches voted to determine the nominees in their respective categories – actors nominate actors, film editors nominate film editors, etc. In the Animated Feature Film and Foreign Language Film categories, nominees are selected by a vote of multi-branch screening committees. All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees.
