Eric Thomas is a true legend of motivation.

He’s gone from being homeless, to working incredibly hard in order to become successful. After his period of homelessness, he picked himself up, went back to school and finally got his GED.

He’s now moved into the world of motivational speaking, and if you’re looking for motivation, Eric Thomas is someone you should definitely be following. You may have noticed I’ve mentioned him a couple of times on Wealthy Gorilla before.

E.T’s quotes are incredibly inspiring, and so are his videos and speeches on YouTube. I recommend you check out his YouTube channel if you haven’t done so already.

  1. Eric Thomas is a great man and a great motivator. I have listened to alot of his speeches and the passion in his voice moves me at my core. These are some great motivational quotes you have given here. I particular love his famous quote “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” It powerful because it tells you that in order to reach the type of success that we want, we have to focus and let go of the distractions.
