I think most of us believe there is a reason we’re here on this planet. But I personally know how hard it can be to uncover and discover the reason that is. It seems daunting considering how easily we can become consumed with trivial matters and the distractions of modern culture and society.
But my guest today, Eric Thomas (AKA, The Hip Hop Preacher), has been helping millions of people around the world ignite their power and purpose. Today, ET and I talk about overcoming the “passive boy,” becoming more of who you are – not a clone of someone else, why you don’t need the world to approve to succeed, the battle between the “two you’s,” and finding immense opportunity in crisis.
“People treat you differently when they celebrate you than when they tolerate you.” Tweet That— Eric Thomas
Eric Thomas (ET)
Eric Thomas is a Ph.D., an author (including his latest book, You Owe You), and incredibly powerful speaker, a pastor, and so much more.
His incredibly unique and powerful approach to personal performance has made him one of the most highly sought-after public speakers in the world and a powerful force for motivation and inspiration on social media.
As CEO of his Consulting Firm, he’s worked with dozens of hugely successful organizations and Fortune 500 companies including General Electric, AT&T, Nike, Under Armour, UPS, and many franchises within the MLB, NBA, and the NFL. You’re going to hear exactly why that is in this powerful conversation. Enjoy.
“Get as much God as you can, and get as much money as you can.” Tweet That— Eric Thomas
- Criticism often reflects one’s own insecurity
- Getting what we want isn’t necessarily getting what we need
- Learning from others rather than being them
- Know what self-actualization means to you
- Having a relationship with God
- You need both God and money
- Taking personal responsibility for your life
“There is no evil in the world that can stop me when my mind is made up, but there’s no good in the world that can help you when you’re lazy.” Tweet That— Eric Thomas
