The 10 Best Motivational Videos Featuring Eric Thomas

Last Updated:

The motivational videos I’ve witnessed being uploaded to YouTube in the past couple of years are phenomenal.

The emotions and adrenaline that comes rushing to the surface when you hear the combination of your favorite motivational speakers and the most inspirational music in the world; is incredible.

If you’re a fan of motivational speakers such as Greg Plitt, Tony Robbins, Les Brown and in particularly: Eric Thomas, then I’m sure you feel exactly the same.

The trouble I have currently is that all the videos I love are disorganized. I haven’t taken the time to create motivational playlists, and split out my favorite motivational videos into separate groups.

That’s where this article comes in. I’m going to be using these articles as my personal lists of top motivational videos, and you can too.


The Best Motivational Videos Featuring Eric Thomas

So the first list of the series; includes the 10 best motivational videos featuring Eric Thomas as one of the main speakers.

There may be other speakers included within the videos; but in my opinion these are the best motivational videos on YouTube that feature Eric Thomas within them.

Check them out below and don’t forget to let me know if you have a favorite that’s not included within the list.

You can also leave a comment as to which motivational speakers you want me to create a similar list for next time around.

Stay motivated!


Believe in Yourself – Motivational Video

This motivational video featuring Eric Thomas was created by Ben Lionel Scott, and published back in September 2014.

This video’s absolutely perfect for anyone who’s struggling to believe in themselves and is having a hard time finding the motivation to go out and really get to work on their dreams.

As well as featuring a great speech from Jaret Grossman, Eric Thomas also plays a big part in this video. This video featuring Eric Thomas has been one of my favorites ever since I first watched it only a few days after Ben published it.


Get Through It – Motivational Video

Second on the list of my favorite videos featuring Eric Thomas, is ‘Get Through It’. This video was created by Chispa Motivation and published in October 2014.

The first 3 minutes of speech is all done by Les Brown and then E.T comes in for the last couple of minutes at the end to finish it off.

This motivational video is perfect for anyone who feels like their down on their luck at the moment. Maybe you feel like you don’t have the motivation to keep on trawling through the hard times your currently facing, and you can’t quite see the light at the end of the tunnel.

This is absolutely perfect for you in order to give you the motivation to get through it.


Feel the Pain – Motivational Video

‘Feel the Pain’ was created by Motivation Grid back in May 2014, and takes on a completely different vibe to the other two videos I’ve mentioned above. This motivational video is much more upbeat and focuses on using pain to your advantage.

Pushing through all of your pain to grow stronger and to end up being something that you thank yourself for in the future.

The main speaker in this video is Eric Thomas, and it’s perfect for anyone going through pain of some sort, but particularly athletes and bodybuilders as you can see featured in the clips.


Rise & Grind – Motivational Video

Rise and Grind was created by Beats Reloaded and published in January 2014. The only speaker in this motivational video is Eric Thomas, and it’s the perfect video to give you a kick in the ass and get your motivation in check.

If you feel like you’ve been lazy recently, sitting on the sofa “chilling”, or you struggle to get out of bed in the morning, this video is for you.

One of my favorite quotes in the video is;

“Every day you say ‘no’ to your dreams, you might be pushing your dreams back a whole 6 months.”


Vision – Motivational Video

Vision is a video featuring Eric Thomas, as well as several other great speakers such as Will Smith, Sylvester Stallone & Greg Plitt. It was created by Mateusz M in October 2013, one of the greatest motivational video producers YouTube has seen.

This video’s perfect for people who have a vision or a dream idea for their life, but they’re struggling with the motivation to believe in it and actually get working on it.

E.T’s first speech in this video on imagination is so powerful. You definitely need to check this one out.


Everybody Wants to Be A Beast – Motivational Video

‘Everybody Wants to Be A Beast’ was created and uploaded in October 2014 by Marshall Training Systems. I love this video not just because of E.T’s speeches on being a beast, but also because of the video clips.

The video clips follow a guy practicing hurdle jumps, and I love the fact that he is specifically doing every type of practice he can to improve how he jumps hurdles.

My favorite Eric Thomas quote from this video is;

“Everybody wants to be a beast, until it’s time to do what beasts do.”


What’s Your Why – Motivational Video

‘What’s Your Why’ is another incredibly inspirational video featuring Eric Thomas, that was uploaded by Chispa Motivation in May 2015.

The clips that have been used here fit perfectly with what E.T’s saying, particularly the story of the guy trying to walk again, and the video really pulls together.

What’s your why? Why do you get up in the morning? Why do you do what you do?


Through Hell – Motivational Video

Through Hell was created by Epsilon and uploaded in March 2015. Both E.T and Les Brown bring great and powerful speeches to the table in this video.

Similarly to a couple of the other videos on this list, Through Hell is all about pushing through tough times in your life when your facing disappointment, setbacks, rejection and other circumstances that are draining the life out of you.

Refuse to take no for an answer, and keep on pushing on until you finally achieve what you want.


Never Quit – Motivational Video

Never Quit was created by Motivation Grid in January 2014. And although Eric Thomas doesn’t play a huge part in the overall speech of the video, I can’t help but include it on this list. E.T’s speech is still very powerful in this video.

The tone of the video is simple: don’t give up, don’t quit. Don’t throw in the towel and run away when things get tough. This motivational video also features speeches from Will Smith, Elliot Hulse and Les Brown.

My favorite quote from Eric Thomas in this video is;

“I dare you not to go back to sleep, I dare you to get up, and I dare you to chase your dreams.”


Dream – Motivational Video

Dream was created by Mateusz M and uploaded way back in July 2013. It’s a lot similar to ‘Vision’ that I listed above, yet still unique in its own way.

For those of you that have a dream that you’re working towards, and maybe things are getting in the way, or success is not coming to you as quickly as you would have liked; stay focused.

Stay focused on your dreams!

As well as speeches from Eric Thomas, the motivational video also includes speeches from Les Brown and Will Smith.



These top 10 motivational videos featuring Eric Thomas are all really powerful motivational tools, and definitely need to be part of your playlist. As you saw above there’s also plenty of other great speeches from different speakers thrown into the mix.

Just to recap on the list in short:

  1. Believe in Yourself
  2. Get Through It
  3. Feel the Pain
  4. Rise and Grind
  5. Vision
  6. Everybody Wants to Be a Beast
  7. What’s Your Why

  9. Never Quit
  10. Dream
