If you don't do these 3 things - You Will Fail | Eric Thomas


If you do the three things I tell you to do tonight I guarantee you, whatever it is you wanna do in life, You'll be able to do. You will be able to accomplish whatever you want to academically, financially. So three things. Alright, I'm gonna tell you a story, and the story is about- you guys have probably heard about this beIe, it was hum, It was a young man who- you know he wanted to make a lot of money and so he went to this guru, right ? He told the guru "You know, I wanna be on the same level your on" And so the guru said "If you wanna be on the same level I'm on, I'll meet you tomorrow, at the beach, at 4 am." So the young man got there, 4 am, 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 on to the water, watch this, when he walks out into the water, it goes waist deep. So he said "Come on, a little further" Walked out a little further then he had it right around this area. He said come on out a little further, he came out a little further, it was right at his mouth, my man like, "I'm about to go back in here, this guy's outta his mind !" So the old man said, "I thought you wanted to be successful ?" He said "I do", He said, "Walk a little further" He came, dropped his head in, held him down, hold him down ! My man getting scratchy, hold him down, Just before my man was about to pass out, he raised him up. He said "I have a question for you !" somebody answer the question for me, he said "When you were underwater, what did you wanna do ?" He said "I wanted to breath." He told the guy, he said, "When you want to succeed as bad as you wanna breath, then you'll be successful." I don't know how many of y'all got asthma in here today, but if you ever had a asthma attack before, you short of breath, SOB, shortness of breath, you wheezing! The only thing you try to do, is get some air. You don't care about no basketball game, you don't care what's on TV, you don't care about nobody calling you, you don't care about a party. The only thing you care about when you're 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 successful, as bad as you wanna breath, then you'll be successful.
