I watched this video a few weeks ago and I’ve gone back to it several times. It fires me up! I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch it! Later in this post, I embedded the original videos of the motivational speech by Eric Thomas.


My favorite part is when he says:

“Most of you say you want to be successful, but you don’t want it bad. You just kind of want it. You don’t want it badder than you want to 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 to sleep. Some of you love sleep more than you love success.”

The biggest challenge we face isn’t the desire to be successful. We all dream big. We all want to do great things. The challenge is to be willing to give up whatever is necessary to do great things. In the pursuit of your dreams, you’ll have to give up time, money, sweat, and some friendships.

The only things you should never give up is your family, your faith, and your integrity.

So the question is, how bad do you want it?

How bad do you want to see your dreams come to pass?

How badly do you want to get into the best shape of your life?

How badly do you want to move up in your company?

How badly do you want to make ___?

How badly do you want ______?

Here is the original speech:
