Eric Thomas is a speaker, author and a minister whose work is to inspire and push people reach their next level. At some point in his life, he was homeless for about two years until he met a preacher that determined him to go back to school. It seems that the right words can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
His level of energy is unbelievable and when I listen to him, I feel energized as well. I must say, the ideas he talks about are not new, but the way he addresses them is unique. He cuts the bullsh*t and goes straight to the point even though it can be hurtful.
You can find below a video made by Evan Carmichael with his view about Top 10 Rules for Success that Eric Thomas applies in his life.
I love his rule number 4 (Don’t be average). I believe that we all need to be grateful for what we have in life (practicing gratitude is one important factor for a better life), but we also need to want more because we can. We have the required resources to go to lion mode so we can be better than average which eventually can increase that average level so it actually is a work in progress. We are learning machines so we can use this skill to acquire information that can push us forward.
What do you think about these rules and which one is your favorite one?
