Eric Thomas | Motivational Speech | How Bad Do you Want it
Eric Thomas (aka ET The Hip Hop Preacher) shares The Secrets to Success in a passionate and energetic speech to students at Michigan State University (MSU). Central to ET’s message is the now famous (and powerful) “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful!” antidote.
If you haven’t heard Eric Thomas speak yet, you must watch his Secrets to Success speech and become acquainted with one of the most energizing speakers I’ve heard (watch the speech below).
Eric is a renowned author, speaker, educator and minister.
He’s been called upon by professional sports teams in the NBA, NFL and MLB, to help inspire, motivate and energize elite athletes to perform at the highest level. And he’s also spoken to several colleges, schools and companies with the same mission in mind.
But this wasn’t always the case.
Growing up in Detroit, Michigan, Eric dropped out of high school at the age of sixteen. And after a heated argument with his mother and step-father, he left his home in a fit of anger and found himself living in the (very cold) streets of Detroit.
From earning whatever he could by stealing, to sleeping in abandoned buildings, to eating from garbage cans, this was the most challenging period of Eric’s life. But it would also prove to be his greatest strength later on.

This video clip by Dr Eric Thomas brings tears to my eyes because this clip feeds my Spirit. God bless Dr Eric Thomas. I'm in class now 57 years old going for my high school diploma. It's tough but I'm going anyway. I get up 3am 5 days a week for work and drive 60 miles to work and 60 miles back home. I also have a wife that I have to also be attentive to. I've been going to night school for about a year. I need 12 more credits. Thank you Dr. Eric Thomas for your love and support. I have a writing class and alegebra A+B and Geometry A+B left. I'm in the CEA 3 program in Middletown Delaware it's tough as I said before but I will accomplish it.
Working two years each day for 17 hours could speak 2 lines of english and now giving 2 hours of speeches on stage and debates stuff fekt alone but this man made my doubts clear and lighten up my path. Gonna get busy for 5 years.
For over a year I listened to speeches by Eric Thomas, my whole life I've had people down talk me saying I'd do nothing, my 8th grade teacher said I would accomplish nothing, at 23 years old I finished school, at 24 I became a cop serving my community, moved to a new city started fresh. No matter what people tell you your dreams can be accomplished. You only need 1 opportunity for someone to see your gift.
God Bless this man. I am a late bloomer and didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I then decide that as a child, I wanted to be a lawyer. To protect those who cannot protect themselves. After improving my marks I finally got to law school. Although at that time I had gone through a lot of heartbreak; losing a close Grandmother, heart broken from a gf, and my mother disclosing her MS to me. I failed my first year of law school. If it wasn't for Eric Thomas, I would have not been able to stand up. I am now about to graduate law school and I'm confident to say the world is in front of me. Thank you Eric. Hope to one day meet you brother.
Fuck yeah ET. Keep grinding brother. May God be with you and your family always. You inspire so many people by your passion. Everyone should take their life and their goals this seriously. The world would be a much better place.

Hey, I know a lot of you guys don't like the music in this. There's another video without the music. It's the full version, but it's only a couple mins more. Here it is!
This guys ALWAYS makes me teary eyed (in a good way) and I've seen this exact video numerous times. It's just THAT fucking good 👍
Btw, I absolutely will take that dare. It's very enticing coming from him and his passion. Starting today, I will continue to fail forward on my passion for the first time for the next 12 months. I can't wait to start to fail tomorrow and tell you the outcome of my failures in 12 months ❤ see you in 12, this is very motivating!!!
I have a semester left of undergraduate and just found out you need to have a certain gpa in order to get accepted for the masters program. I am so disappointed in myself. I feel so behind now. I am the first in my family to go to college. At least I made it this far but ...
I remember my 10th grade P.E teacher showing my class this when it first came out.. 2 years later I am a ranked 6th amomg all seniors at my high school for best GPA . 9th and 10th grade were average grades (B's and C's) but 11th grade I got straight A's , and now in 12th grade I have 5 AP classes with A's in all of them besides AP Calculus which I have worked my ass off just for a B. I am proud where I am today and I have started to work out after getting bullied for so many years about my weight, I have now lossed over 45 pounds and I have gained so much muscle over this past year . thank you so much Eric Thomas for changing my life .. I will continue to WANT MORE for the rest of my life.
Great video...I love the realness, the simplicity, and the power of this video. As an educator keeping it real with empowerment is so important. I will be sharing this video with my students. Thank you ET....I would love to work with you.
Every time I think about leaving college, I come here so he can yell at me. Gets me in gear every time. Even though I have health issues, I'm graduating and I'm getting my second degree. I have siblings that look up to me. Listening to #DrEricThomas, I made the Dean's List at my first school. If I can beat cancer, defeat migraines and other severe issues, anyone who is reading this can too. #StayFrosty
This video have effect my life so much. Eric Thomas and Les brown thank u guys so much u are for me very important for me and it's doesn't matter even we propably never gonna meet but I wish u all the best!
Everybody who clicked on this video has the same mindset.. WE ALL WANT BETTER . WE ALL WANT MORE FROM OURSELVES. You have a dream, Chase it!!! Success has nothing to do with anyone else, it’s about how bad you want to be living the lifestyle you want to live! Strive to do better in everything you do! Accept nothing less than your very best. I hope all of you reach your goals! It’s Grind season baby!! God bless
This man and this video changed my life. I was unemployed with a baby on the way and not making enough money to support my family. During that time I watched this clip every single night and I now live my life by the principles he talks about. Since then I have gone on to make 6 figures and be successful in a lot of avenues of life. I attribute it all to this man and this video.
This video is what I use to get through every day of life. I watch it when I wake up, work out ,when I go to work and when I go to sleep. Remember watching this in high school and it clicked I can do better but I got to work hard. A few years goes by and I'm in the Army a Specialist and I'm wondering damn how did I get here and right as I play the video I see the old me saying thanks, let's keep moving forward.
I'm a fighter through and through I won't give up I have a strong heart and I will push until there's nothing left in me ... I can I will I must. And et 's. When you want to breathe as bad as you want to succeed best quotes to motivate you to push through whatever your goin through
The miners are interested in finding a nonce which will create a hash with certain characteristics. Lastly, they have to find a random value that they included in the header, which makes the computed hash over that header a value below a particular target. In other words, they do not have to agree to change the protocol. Though there are a few gold diggers attempting to fill their pockets and certain projects that aren`t viable and shouldn`t be encouraged in any way. For users running a complete node, it is a fairly painless procedure to upgrade the software to the newest version. The process of locating a new block to extend the blockchain is known as mining. Proof-of-Work systems utilize cryptographic hashing algorithms to create the action of mining a block a complicated computation. Our software is totally incompatible with altcoins. Changes and modifications to how that it works need to be approved by consensus and every CPU gets a vote. To start with, it`s essential to realize that hardware wallet users control entirely their private keys. Whether you`re bullish or bearish on Bitcoin Gold, you ought not lose your coins as a result of careless mistakes! On the 1 hand, it may result in making a coin that solves all the pending issues. There`s no currency or digital asset named Bitcoin Core. Bitcoin Cash increases the range of transactions that may be processed per block. You could send any quantity of money, any place in the Earth, almost at no cost. You`ve made some great money already on the market, but you want more. For a wealthy individual, BTC`s price premium may be viewed as a plus. For someone without lots of money, BCH`s low price may look like a great deal for Bitcoin. If you have some concerns about the worth of Bitcoin after all forks, you need to be ready for a drop. The distinction is that not all of these suffer the chain split. The primary problem is Bitcoin imposes a hard limit on the magnitude of a block, the location where transaction information becomes stored. The end result is many straightforward wallets, called SPV wallets and very commonly found on your phone, will be quite confused about which chain is Bitcoin. In Bitcoin, the most important reason is known as the network effect.
