You Have to Want to Succeed as much as You Want to Breathe

For years I’d watch this video. I’d put it on and use it for a podcast, and not watch it. Just to listen to it was valuable. It never got old. I had to listen to it again, again and again.

Have you ever asked anyone what do I need to do to be successful?

I have lots of times. But it never seemed to make sense. Either too many uncontrollable variables or they had a very specific path. I walked away wondering how their event of circumstances could happen to me.

Not until I heard Dr. Eric Thomas in this video, I was hooked. Thomas’ big and powerful voice says it one sentence.

You Have to Want to Succeed as much as You Want to Breathe
Dr. Eric Thomas

That one quote is gold. But he continues on. I love how Dr. Thomas explains how success is possible for everyone. There are no shortcuts. Everyone must want to succeed as much as they want to breathe.

Again, this video never gets old because the content is rich. No one has ever given me $100 without a reason. Nothing in life isn’t free. None of my rewards or accolades were given to me. I had to earn all of it, but enough about me.

If you haven’t already checked out Dr. Eric Thomas, check out his website. They have hundreds of videos. His group also does conferences. Thomas and his colleagues have a podcast too.

Besides Les Brown, ET is one of my favorite motivational speakers. He’s never let me down. His quote, “You Have to Want to Succeed as much as You Want to Breathe” never gets old.

Thank you ET for following your dream!

I write this because my business is personal because this service is for the advancement of all humanity. My failures and successes are for your gain. No strings attached.
