As a child
Les inattention to school work, his restless energy, and
the failure of his teachers to recognize his true potential resulted
in him being mislabeled as a slow learner. The label and the stigma
stayed with him, damaging self-esteem to such an extent that it
took several years to overcome.

determination he has initiated and continued a process of unending
self-education which has distinguished him as an authority on
harnessing human potential. Les Brown's passion to learn and his
hunger to realize greatness in himself and others helped him to
