The legendary heights of success Eric Thomas has now achieved did not arrive without heart-breaking failure and enormous pain.
Eric Thomas dropped out of high school at the age of sixteen and after a tempestuous argument with his mother left home to live alone on the streets.

It was only when he met a pastor that Eric found the inspiration to go back to school and take his GED exams.
After this decision, the trajectory of his life changed forever. What was an inspiration to turn his own life around soon became an urgent calling to help others find the inspiration and motivation to conquer their own greatness!

Eric Thomas has been an inspiration to me ever since I attended Michigan State University where he first started blowing up in the public speaking realm. He is a great person and a great motivator. His passion fuels me. I particularly love his quote “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” It speaks a lot and tells just how focused you have to be in the pursuit of reaching your dreams.
Such a great quote, and absolutely one of the best speakers and motivators EVER!

I ran across some of your motivational speeches on Pandora. The one that stood out in mind was about uncle Warren and how success does not have an expiration date. Then I went looking on YouTube and found “In order to be a beast you have to do what the beast does!” I am a Mother of 11 (5 natural 6 by marriage) and a wife and evangelist and an aspiring producer. Your speech changed my life, I have since started a beast of the week post where I highlight people that are doing what needs to be done. I see that beast mode is not a mode but a way of life and it is awesome to see somebody living it. Thank you, Tanya “TK” Kennedy
This motivation made me change my life immediately after listing to them,thank you fearless motivation(fearless team)
