You’ve Gotta Be Hungry | Les Brown Video | Motivational Story

If you want to do anything worthwhile in life, you’ve gotta be hungry.

Mamie Brown’s baby boy (that’s Les Brown) tells a wonderful story of how he got started in radio. It’s a story of persistence, hard work, big dreams, and hunger…Les Brown was hungry.

It’s only about five minutes but will have you fired up and hungry yourself.





How are you progressing on your goals this year? What can you do today to make them happen?

You’ve gotta be hungry for something if you’re going to get it. You’ve gotta want it as bad as you want to breathe (to quote Eric Thomas).

You’ve gotta need it.

You’ve gotta do every single thing it takes to get it.

You’ve gotta be hungry.




What are you hungry for?
