From all the available video this is still one of the most epic motivation videos: Eric Thomas The Secret to Success.
It is a recording from Eric Thomas doing one of his motivational speeches to young college students at the Michigan Student University about having a desire for success.
I have literally seen it over 200 times! I have this video in several places to be able to watch it at any moment I want. I downloaded the movie and stored it on my smartphones & tablets for whenever I don’t have an internet connection. I’ve ripped the audio from it to listen to the speech while working out or while driving.
With this is epic video his awareness on the internet kick started. It went viral in a matter of weeks and got spread out online. It reached millions of people who got the know this amazing guy.
He begins telling a story about a guy that want to know how to become successful and seeks his help with a guru. The guru invites him to the beach the next morning at 4 am and has the guy to walk into the water up to his shoulder area. The old man dropped his head in the water and held him down up to the point where he was about to pass out.
When you were under water, what was the only thing you wanted to do? … … …Breath!
After this great introduction he goes on about going after your dreams. He’s going real deep to get your attention about why you have never really got to the point where you want to be. Why you always have given up on your goals.
All your excuses are your own rationalizations about why you didn’t follow through and push it all the way. When you really want to be successful you’re going to have to sacrifice things you do or like for what you want to become in the future. You can’t realize your goals and dreams by doing the same things you’ve always done. By doing the same over and over again, you’ll keep getting the same results.
Here is the great motivational video from Eric Thomas The Secret to Success
Be sure to watch it several times, because every time you watch it there will be another remark Eric makes that will hit you and get you thinking about your lack of motivation. You’ll be aware of how bad you want to succeed and it will motivate you.
I challenge you to really go for it. Don’t hide behind your excuses when things get rough. Be honest with yourself why you didn’t follow through so you can learn from it for the next time when you are thinking about giving up.
In 2012 Eric Thomas has written his first book named The Secret to Success. He tells about his youth and all the struggles he had to go through to get where he is now. It is full of great stories about his life and will help you to kick start your own success. It is a very easy to read book and really grabbed me. I finished it in just one evening.
