Eric Thomas – Be Phenomenal:
Eric Thomas, better known as ET, the hip–hop, preacher is popular worldwide for his inspirational speeches that he delivers in his own unique way. It is this uniqueness of his that gets his word across to masses and continues to inspire, motivate and help people achieve success and live their lives the way they want to. Although he continues to inspire everyone in different ways, here are 6 ways that he has inspired us:
If you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful
Success doesn’t come to people who spend their time idealising or being involved in wishful thinking. People who are truly successful know what they want and then they go for it. Someone who sits around dreaming about what they want without willing to struggle for it and then laments about not being successful needs to understand that what they want will simply not drop into their lap. They need to spend every waking moment aligning their focus and their actions in a manner that will help bring them what they want.
The Grinding & Hard Work Mentality
Many people these days look for shortcuts for what they want. They want to be successful but are just not motivated or inspired enough to work towards it. Anyone who wants to get somewhere needs to have the right attitude and mindset. Only with hard work come the results that one wants. If you are prepared to grind, prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals, you will no doubt become successful.
Everyone in this world wants to be successful and to have riches. Can you find someone who doesn’t want something? There might be millions of people in this world who want exactly what you want. What makes you so special is that you will be able to get it when so many others want it? Be phenomenal, do not be ordinary! Dare to be different!
Thank God it is Monday
Do not dread work and do not dread Mondays. You should look forward to your workweek because this is what will get you to what you want. This is how you will make your dreams come true: by working and not by staying home and sleeping late. You need to set goals and priorities and then understand what is needed to make them come true.
I don’t ever want you to settle for another average day in your life
If you just drift through a day, all your days will be gone before you know it. If you let your days be average, your life will be average as it is these days that make up your life. Aim to make each day phenomenal and you will have a phenomenal life.
I dare you to be great! I challenge you to be great in every single thing you do!
Do not let anything in your life just be. In every venture you undertake, make sure to give it your all. When every project you undertake is great, there is hardly any reason why you will not be successful. Give your best to everything in your life and without doubt, everything you will receive will be great.
The greatness of a person lies in venturing out in any move or opportunity to better his or her life, in spite of numerous failures, humiliations, discouragements, disabilities and sufferings. What everyone world over can do is practice this virtue for oneself and help anyone, any damn person whether known or unknown, familiar or stranger who strives to better oneself and others despite his or her shortcomings.
