Eric Thomas | Motivational speech | How bad do you want it

Eric Thomas (aka ET The Hip Hop Preacher) speaks passionately and energetically to Michigan State University (MSU) students about The Secrets to Success. At the heart of ET’s message is the famous (and powerful) antidote, “If you want to be as bad as you want to breathe, you will be successful!”
If you haven’t heard Eric Thomas speak yet, you need to watch his “Secrets to Success” speech and familiarize yourself with one of the most energetic speakers I’ve ever heard (see speech below).

Eric is a renowned author, speaker, educator and minister.

He was asked by professional sports teams in the NBA, the NFL and the MLB to inspire, motivate and motivate top athletes for top performances. He has also spoken to several colleges, schools and companies that have the same mission.

However, this has not always been the case.

Eric grew up in Detroit, Michigan and dropped out of high school at sixteen. And after a violent argument with his mother and stepfather, he left his house in a fit of anger and found himself on the (very cold) streets of Detroit.

This was the most difficult time in Eric’s life, starting with stealing, sleeping in abandoned buildings, and eating from trash cans. But it would later prove to be its greatest strength.

  2. In my younger years I dropped classes and transferred schools whenever things became tough. After failing a few classes, I decided to take a break from school for a few years and decided to pursue a nursing degree. The difference with nursing is that it is very structured and strict. If you fail a class or drop a class, they kick you out of the program. I graduate nursing school this semester and it is the first time that I followed through with something. Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. There was a young man, you know,
    who wanted to make a lot of money
    and so he went to this guru, right.
    And he told the guru you know
    I wanna be on the same level
    you are and the guru said
    if you wanna be on the same level I’m on,
    I’ll met you tomorrow at the beach.

    So the young man got there 4 A.M. he already to rock n’ roll.
    Got on a suit should of wore shorts.
    The old man grabs his hand and said:
    How bad do you wanna be successful?
    He said: “Real bad”.
    He said: Walk on out in the water.
    So he walks out into the water. Watch this.
    When he walks out to the water
    he goes waist deep and goes like this guy crazy.

    Hey I wanna make money and he got me out here swimming.
    I didn’t ask to be a lifeguard.
    I wanna make money he got me in
    so he said come on a little further
    walked out a little further
    then he had it right around this area
    the shoulder area
    so this old man crazy
    he making money but he crazy.
    So he said come on out a little further
    came out a little further, it was right at his mouth
    my man, I’m not about to go back in this guy is out of his mind. And the old man said:
    “I thought you said you wanted to be successful?”
    He said: “I do.”
    He said: “Then walk a little further.”
    He came, dropped his head in, held him down,
    hold him down, my man (kept scratching) hold him down,
    he had him held down,
    just before my man was about to pass out,
    he raised him up.
    He said: “I got a question for you.”
    He told the guy, he said:
    “When you want to succeed as bad as
    you wanna breathe than you will be successful.”

    I don’t know how many of you all got asthma here today?
    If you ever had a asthma attack before your short of breath S.O.B shortness of breath,
    you wheezing (breath sound) the only thing
    you trying to do is get some air.
    You don’t care about no basketball game,
    you don’t care about what’s on T.V.,
    you don’t care about nobody calling you,
    you don’t care about a party.
    The only thing you care about
    when you trying to breathe is to get some fresh air.
    That’s it!
    And when you get to the point
    where all you wanna do is
    be is successful as bad as
    you wanna breathe then you will be successful.
    And I’m here to tell you that number one,
    most of you say you wanna be successful
    but you don’t want it bad, you just kind of want it.
    You don’t want it bad than you wanna party.
    You don’t want it as much as you want to be cool.
    Most of you don’t want success as much as you want sleep.
    Some of you want sleep more than you want success.
    And I’m here to tell you today,
    if your going to be successful
    you gotta be willing to give up sleep.
    You gotta be willing to work with 3 hours of sleep
    2 hours of sleep, if you really wanna be successful.
    Some day your gonna have to stay up 3 days in a row.
    Because if you go to sleep you might miss
    the opportunity to be successful.
    That’s how bad you gotta (inaudible).

    You gotta go days without
    You gotta want to be successful so bad that you forget to eat.
    Beyonce said,
    once she was on the set doing her thang,
    three days had gone by and she forgot that she didn’t eat. Cause she was engaged.
    I never forget,
    I went, 50 Cent was doing his movie,
    I did a little research on 50
    and 50 said: that when he wasn’t do the movie he was doing the soundtrack.
    And they said: “When do you sleep?” 50,
    and 50 said: “Sleep, sleep is for those people who are broke.
    I don’t sleep.” See I got an opportunity to make my dream become a reality.
    Don’t cry to quits.
    You already in pain, you already hurt.
    Get a reward from it. Don’t go to sleep until you succeed.
    Listen to me,
    I’m here to tell you today you can come here and
    and you can jump up – you can do flips and you can be excited when we give away money but listen to me,
    you will never be successful,
    I don’t have to give you a dime if you …
    You won’t be successful until you say I don’t need that money cause I got it in here
