“The Key To Success Is Work” – Eric Thomas
Many times, I use to look at successful, rich and wealthy people and wonder…
“what do they have that I don’t have?”
“What are they doing that I can’t do?”
“They must have been born rich”
After sitting on the sidelines for 7 years (from 18 to 25), I finally got a dose of what it takes to be successful.
Rather than type a super long post, I figured, I’d let Eric Thomas aka ET the Hip Hop Preacher of Thank God It’s Monday, tell you what it really takes to be successful.
What’s the KEY to success you ask?
One more key point…
Everyone one of us has greatness within us.
We wake up each morning with a number of hours to make that the best day possible.
Whether it’s learning a new skill….
Helping a number of people…
Or just living life to the fullest (because tomorrow isn’t promised)…
…You should be doing your best to spend those 24 hours wisely.
They’re rich? So what!
One thing I learned is that no matter how much money a person has access to…
…it doesn’t mean they can or will outwork you.
Just because a kids father paid for him to go to Harvard, doesn’t mean he’s going to attend class.
A father can have a great Fortune 500 business that brings in billions. The drive he had to build that business can’t be passed down to the children.
You can’t buy drive or ambition at the store.
It’s the GREATNESS within each one of us…
…when it comes out, it produces drive and ambition.
