Tu no me vas a ganar en esfuerzo, desde tu Jet no me ganaras,

desde tu Bentley no me ganaras! En la vida cuando echas los dados, en el peor de los casos

caes en mediocre, asi que no seas mediocre porque si no tratas nada igual llegas a mediocre

YO SOY el mejor que jamas ha hecho esto! No porque me este comparando, sino por que no hay nadie como yo

YO SOY y tu problema es que todavia no has llegado a tu YO SOY!

Yo no puedo colgar algo frente a mi cara y simplemente quererlo porque no lo quiero. Y mucho de uds toman

lo que sea, porque no saben lo que quieren. Asi que si puedo hacer una cosa por uds antes de que se vayan de aqui

No quiero nada de uds aparte de que se vayan de aqui sabiendo lo que en realidad quieren!

Que quieren en sus matrimonios? Que quieren con sus hijos? Sus hijas? Que quieren como salud?

Que quieren economicamente? Cuanto dinero quieren hacer por año? Que cosas nuevas quieren hacer?

Como quieren vivir? Ya basta de levantarse en las mañanas como si fuese un accidente! Que quieren?

y cuando ya hayan conseguido lo que quieren, pasen el resto de su vida natural tratando de conseguirlo!

Levantandose y luchando por eso! La razon por la cual hablo con tanta pasion. Eric Thomas

por que hablas con tanta autoridad? porque estoy hablando sobre mi vida, no sobre algo que lei

yo comia de la basura, yo

no queria nada que ver con la basura, yo vivia en edificios abandonados, yo no queria nada con esos edificios!!

Pero Eric tu papa no estuvo en tu vida, tu mama te tuvo de adolescente, tu creciste en... pero mirate Eric

Por favor!! Eso no es una excusa. No hay excusas para que no estes viviendo tu potencial al maximo

no hay excusas! Regla #2. Trabaja con tus dones

Trabaja con tus dones...

Trabajar en mis dones

yo me di cuenta que todos nacimos con dones pero tenemos que pulirlos, sabes

no simplemente seras el mejor, hemos hablado de la escuela de la grandeza, sabes hablamos de que

la grandeza esta dentro de cada quien, pero yo me di cuenta que mi don no se iba a crear el mismo

mi don no se iba a nutrir el mismo, no se iba a perfeccionar el mismo

eso fue algo que yo tuve que hacer y asi sin darnos cuenta hicimos un video que se hizo viral

y creo que tiene mas de 50 millones de visitas y ahora nuestra pasion se convirtio en ganancia

Asi mismo! Convertimos nuestra pasion a ganancia.Me encanta! Si.

Regla #3 No Excusas. Saben que da pena?

Queremos que las personas nos garanticen cosas, pero nosotros mismos no estamos dispuestos de darnos garantias a nosotros mismos

Ahora escucha esa promesa de nuevo, alguien te hizo una promesa, 30 dolares

por 30 dias de garantia para hacer algo, y si en 30 dias no hacen lo te prometieron

en 30 dias llegas con una actitud demandando tu dinero de vuelta, pero NUNCA te has demandado el dinero de vuelta a ti mismo!

Nunca te has visto al espejo y TE has dicho, TU me defraudaste! Y hasta que no llegues as ese punto TU, TE defraudaste

Tu nunca lo has hecho, no eres lo suficientemente valiente! Tu lo quieres poner en los demas y decir

la razon por la cual no soy exitoso es por que mi jefe...

Alguna vez te has visto al espejo y dicho?: No me estoy levantando a tiempo, no estoy llegando al trabajo a tiempo.

No estoy dando el 120% de mi cuando estoy en el trabajo

Yo mismo me estoy defraudando. Y cuando llegues a ese punto de poder decirte eso. No me importa, escuchenme bien

Sin faltar el respeto. No me importa Glenn. Yo no lo hago por el, yo adoro a Glenn

Yo no vine a hacer lo que se hacer para que Glenn me recomiende, para que Glenn me sobe la espalda

Yo estoy mas preocupado por MI que por lo que piensa Glenn de MI. Yo tengo mis estandares, tengo mis valores

No me importa cuanto me pagues, si doy charla en una escuela primaria por 300$ es porque lo escojo

por $300, si escogi hablar en una carcel gratis yo

escogi eso. Y yo no les voy a dar menos a los prisioneros que a alguien que me pague $300 mil por que?

porque yo me valoro lo suficiente para darles mi 120% a todos o no lo hago. Ese es el problema con muchos de uds.

siempre quieren culpar a otros, siempre quieren quemar a los demas

Pero porque no se echan al fuego uds mismos? Cuando estas dando de ti 50%? Te debes una explicacion.

Te debes una explicacion!!!

Tienes que mirarte al espejo y preguntarte por que estas dando solo 50%? Que diablos te pasa?

Tienes que castigarte. Te tienes que decirte basta de TV, basta de pasapalos. Basta de postres, ya basta!!

No, ahora lo vamos a solucionar. No, no mas alcohol. No por ahora

no puedo con eso por ahora.TU tienes que decirte a TI que TE debes algo! Ya deja de regresar

Te la pasas regresando al mall con el recibo diciendo. Esto fue lo que me prometieron. Glenn no hiciste lo que me prometiste

Pues no hicieron lo que me prometieron

Por que, yo? Tengo que hacer algo por uds?

Se tienen que ir de este cuarto debiendose algo. Yo no llegue hasta donde estoy dando excusas.

Que importa si mi padre no estuvo en mi vida, la verdadera realidad es que el nunca vendra!

Entonces me voy a pasar el resto de mi vida esperandolo? El no va a venir! Yo vivo en America

Soy un hombre Afro-americano, aqui no nos tratan igual. Se llama racismo. No voy a llorar por eso

Probablemente va haber racismo hasta despues que yo muera. Pero no voy a llorar por eso. Igualmente me volvere millonario.

I'm still gonna be one of the top motivational speakers in the world

No, I didn't grow up on that side of the town. No, my mama don't have no network

No, I don't know a whole lot of people. No, I'm not at a country club

No, I don't play golf and I don't plan on playing no time soon, but I'm still gonna be successful

I'm still gonna get to where they are why cuz I owe it to myself and can't nobody stopped me put me you

Need to get rid of them excuses. You need to stop pointing fingers at people and you start pointing fingers at yourself

What is you not doing renumber for upgrade your values? God asked me about two months ago

He said et if there's one mistake you made what's that one mistake? You made I saw me be honest with you

My values are not in alignment with my dreams

He said what do you mean by that I said I want to tell you a story

I got a good friend of mine who you know a good friend of mine. He came to me say Eric

My marriage is not where my marriage needs to be. I need to make some adjustments

I see you and your wife. I see how much time you spend with your wife

How much time you spend with your children, and I just I want that you buy your wife roses regularly

You're always taking her out to eat like yeah, I'm watching you you'd spoil her et. But I just what can I do?

And so I told him what they're doing. Guess what he started doing god. He started doing the exact same thing

I started doing he said Erica's not working

Like I'm doing exactly what you're doing, but it's not working. I said he said why isn't it working?

So, you know why it's not working because your values and your dream you say you say you want a better marriage

But I told you you need to I on your wife's clothes

You know what? He told me after why I said I'll be honest with you here

I know you told me the iron coming to wash he told me to cook but where I come from

Beyond here

When I do that

I feel like a punk and I said that's why you're having a hard time doing it because your

Value system says a man is not supposed to iron a man is not supposed to cook a man is not supposed to wash dishes

That's what your value system says. So you're doing one thing but you're going to get your own value system

the reason why I'm having such an easy time washing clothes and cooking and

Irony, you know why because nothing is as important to me as my marriage and I would rather be happy

I would rather be happy than they say. I ain't no Punk. Let make me a bunk. I want to be a bunk

a

Happy punk

Girl no a friend of Mines

He came to my house and I didn't have a mop

and so I was on the ground and I was mopping the floor with a towel and he says II Tina if I'm free you're

On the ground and you're mopping I said, yeah. He says your wife got you whipped. I said you didn't know

You just found it out

I've been doing a terrible job. I'm sorry. I am with and after 23 years you should be and if you're not it's a problem

So listen to me there those of you said I want to be a millionaire

I want to be the best at this company

right But your value system says you believe in sleep more than you believe in grinding

Your value system says you are a consumer and not a producer that

you're spending more money than you're making why because you're a

conservator you're reading all the books and you're saying everything the books are saying but those books are not in alignment with your values and

You're gonna go to the next level your values are gonna have to change rule no.5 you reap what you sow

I think what people get confused is you know

They're grinding with a goal and I'm not saying you should have goals

But you should be grinding for Brian and said, you know, you should grind because that's what you do

You're passionate about what you do

you know and so you wake it up every day with this concept of I have

24 hours and they're mine this 24-hour belongs to me

Right and whatever I doing is 24 hours will determine where I'll be tomorrow and the next day

I think that's what people need to focus on like get off of this. I want to make six figures

I want to try this car. I want to live in this out

I think what people should be focusing on is I have

24 hours like Oprah only has 24 that field dates only asking me for like Warren Buffett only has

24 hours and then that 24 hour period I can even break my life or make my life nothing

And I'm not saying you should have goals don't

I just think that goes for people is too high on the priority list and I think what should be on the priority list is

Going to bed

So you can wake up

next day and you can grind it out and I'm just a dude that believes you reap what you sow so if you're

Grinding or money grind it on Tuesday grind it on Wednesday if you're grinding six seven days a week

For four span of five or six years something's got to come under that shirt

But if you're only grinding, you know a Monday you fired up Wednesday. He's back you're sleeping in

Thursday you gotta eat the farm of the world is like like I heard people say come dance

With these hump day

Like money off day two days up day like every day is hump day

And I think if we would spend more time on what's my goal, you know meaning?

What do I need to accomplish in this day to live this lifestyle and you go after it then?

I think I think more you will be successful

Rule number six education is the great equalizer

I just ran across a quote the other day that says

Education is the great equalizer

And I was like, oh, so no matter where you are

If you feel like you started at the bottom, you know, if you feel like you started at the top

But you want to preserve the top because just because you're at the top don't mean you gonna be at the top forever

I mean you look at great football players, you know great football teams

I mean, you're not you're not gonna automatically win because of your name

You have to keep performing year after year

So if you're at the bottom and you're like man, I'm at the bottom Eric and I want to live life like everybody else

I want to fly first-class like I want to see the world, you know, I don't want any limitations then

Reading is not not

Okay So I'm using the word reading but what I'm saying is education being enlightened

being

Informed and I had to realize for myself being a high school

Dropout like you can't use that excuse forever where I was born and where I was raised you can't use that forever

And so to me, you liberate yourself Malcolm

You talked about Malcolm Malcolm liberated himself and most people don't know Malcolm was not born

wearing glasses like Malcolm had 20/20 vision

But it was in prison when Malcolm learned to take reading serious and he read with a dim light at night. That's how he

Eventually lost his sight, but he lost his sight, but he gained his vision

You know, he lost his sight, but he gained his vision at that point

So I would say the young people who are watching us that is not optional the more you read the more

Liberated you are and the more you are educated of

To me the the more you can experience a life

Like the people that you're probably looking at and saying I wish I could live like that person. Yeah rule number seven

What is your why what's your why hey if I don't get y'all nothing else?

you better start that what's your why you know why I do what I do and I do it so passionate because my grandfather was

A high school dropout. My father was a high school dropout. I was a high school dropout and we bout to break the cycle

I do what I do so my son won't have to go through what I went through

When I was at the football game my old do one with me

I saw other kids with a file I said I don't never happen to me

I do what I do because my daughter says she's going to Hartford ain't even about y'all

I'm about to come here blaze y'all why cuz I'm trying to get you all the NFL

I ain't bout to miss this opportunity

This is the first NFL team I've ever done in my life, and I'm about to lick it

I'm about to give everything I got and I will know if I won't get another gig it won't having to do with the fact

That I didn't put everything on the field

What's your why why do you wake up in the morning? Why do you put on that jersey

Why do you go out and practice? Why rule number eight have boundaries? I have a ritual where?

even if you're my closest friend, I

Have boundaries, so just because it's my company. It doesn't mean I can take calls all day, right?

I have boundaries so you can't call me in a certain time why I'm working

so I'm on the phone all day and I'm saying this to

Entrepreneurs because one of the gaps and we'll talk about this later in the show

But you got to find a gap and one of the gaps that entrepreneurs is that they feel like because they own their day

They can spend it like they want you cannot spend it like you want to you saw if you were working for IBM

Or you're working for for where are you working for?

You could be on the all day at a major corporation talking on a pole

So so why do you allow yourself to talk on the phone with your business? My FAQ is yours?

You should probably you should make sure there's no phone calls for your business

So one of my rituals is when I get started there are no interruptions when I get started

I don't care if it's my wife my children. They know that from a certain time train

I'm going all in and I can't go all in and answer the phone. I can't go all in and watching TV in distraction

I can't go in with the distraction

And so some entrepreneurs are like why am I not blown up because you don't want you're not in abstraction

You don't have that that that moment of your day

I don't care if it's two hours four hours where you shut in tire whirl out. No Twitter. No Facebook

No you no thing. No Instagram

We love that in Segawa, so we're just the two hours

I'm going in and once I come out then we can do Instagram not be honest

your content probably would be stronger if you had that that time of isolation of

solitude where you give yourself a chance to think you give yourself a chance to go in and when you go in you go a

Hundred and twenty percent. So yeah, I like that rule number nine speak from the heart I think was so unique about

You know, my presentation is that it comes from the heart

You know that I speak from the heart and I'm not afraid to be transparent. I'm not afraid to talk about my failures

I'm not I'm not afraid to talk about my fears

You know, I'm not I'm not afraid to open up my life and give my story to the world

Rule number ten succeed as bad as you want to breathe

If you want to make six figures you can't just be talking about you want to make six figures

You hear what I'm saying you tonight if you do the three things I tell you to do tonight

I

Guarantee, whatever it is you want to do in life?

You'll be able to do you will be able to accomplish whatever you want to academically

Financially relationally, whatever so three things. All right now, I'm gonna tell you the story

I got to get out of here and the stories about you guys have probably heard about this before it was a

It was a young man who you know

He wanted to make a lot of money

And so he went to this guru right and he told the Guru, you know

I want to be on the same level you are and so the Guru said if you want to be on the same level I'm

All I'll meet you tomorrow at the beach at 4:00 a.m

He liked the beach I said I wanna make money I don't want to swim

Guru said if you want to make money, I'll meet you tomorrow

4:00 a.m. So the young man got there 4:00 a.m. He already to rock and roll got on the suit

He should have wore shorts the old man grabs. His hand said how bad do you want to be successful? He said real bad

He said walk on out in the water

So he walks out into the water watch this when he walks onto the water it goes waist-deep

So he liked this guy crazy up a dream like I wanna make money. He got me on your swimming

I didn't ask to be a lifeguard. I don't want to make money

He got me in so he said come on a little further walked. I looked further then he had it right around at this area

The stove the area so this old man crazy he making money, but he crazy

Said come on out a little party. Can I look farther? I was right at his mouth my man

Like I'm about to go back in here. This God is mine

So the old man said I thought you said you wanted to be successful

He said I do he said walk a little further. He can't drop this head in held him down. Hold him down

My man didn't scratch it. Hold him down. I got you. I know you brushed it out, but I got you

He'll down. I need you for illustration. He had him held down just before my man was about to pass out. He raised him up

He said I got a question for you. Somebody answer the question for me

He said when you were under water, what did you want to do?

Lee I'm looking for a different word than live what's that were said I wanted to breathe

He told the guy he said when you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe then you'll be successful I

Don't know how many y'all got asthma here today

But if you ever had an asthma attack before you short of breath and so be shortness of breath you wheezing

The only thing you trying 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 want to do is be

Successful as bad as you want to breathe then you'll be successful

And I'm here to tell you number one that most of you say you want to be successful

But you don't want it bad. You just kind of want it. You don't want it badder than you want a party

You don't want it as much as you want to be cool

You most of you don't want success as much as you want to sleep

some of you love sleep more than you love success and I'm here to tell you today if you're going to be

Successful, you've got to be willing to give up sleep

You got to be willing to work off for three hours of sleep two hours

If you really want to be successful some days you will have to stay up three days in a row

Because if you go to sleep you might miss the opportunity to be successful

That's how bad you got a warning you got to go days when I listen to me. You got to want to be successful

So bad that you forget to eat

Beyonce said once she was on the sand doing her thing three days had gone by she forgot she didn't eat

Because she was engaged I never forget when 50-cent was doing his movie

I did a little research on 50 and 50 cent that when he wasn't doing the movie

He was doing the soundtrack and they when do you sleep 50 sleep?

He said sleep sleep is for those people who are broke. I

Don't sleep

Said I got an opportunity to make a dream become a reality

Football players how many football players?

I got anybody like football in here raise your hand here. I like football

Emmitt Smith I used to be a cowboy fan before they get my boy Tom Landry wrong

I used to be a cowboy fan

And why since there was a commercial Emmitt Smith had won his first Super Bowl and he had this commercial when he was lifting weights

I don't know if you saw the commercial he was flipping and he said he said image said you know what?

I won the Super Bowl so I can rest now

He was doing his bench press so he said I want a Super Bowl so I can rest now

So he throws over about 325 boom and he rests for about two seconds

Woohoo, woohoo! Woohoo

You see that he'd already won a Super Lawyer

he said I think I'm gonna take a rest and he rests my how long one second most of you won't be successful because when

You're studying and you get tired you quit

And I'm here to tell you today if you got it somebody came to my office the other day crying

I said look, don't cry to give up cry to keep going

Don't cry to quit

You already in pain you already hurt get a reward from it

Don't go to sleep

Until you succeed

Listen to me. I'm here to tell you today that you can come here

You can jump up you can do flips you can be excited when we give away money

But listen to me, you'll never be successful in. I don't have to give you a dime to do what you do

You won't be successful until you say I don't need that money

Because I got it in here

So listen to me Emmitt Smith said this at the end of the commercial Emmitt Smith saying all men are created equal

some work harder in pre-season

I'ma say it again because you might have missed it. All men are created equal some work harder in pre-season

So that means that there are some people who are going to see the professor

Going to see the TA and even when the professor says I don't meet with you my ta meets with you you say I want

to talk to your TA I

Don't pay the TA I pay you to teach me

So you won't have to find some time to meet me if I got to meet you at the mall if I got to meet

You at your house you are going to see me listen to me

All men are created equal some work hard in pre-season when I went to college guys were waiting smarter than me for point OS

3.0. They went to the Ivy League high schools came to oak board from these great high schools

Most of them are not doing what I'm doing why cuz it's not about where you come from

It's about heart you come to a place where you know being smart ain't enough. You got to have heart

That's number one. Watch. Number two. Number two catch. Number two. I wrote it down. I want to make sure you got it

It says to be watch this watch this we're talking about sacrifice now

The important thing is this you're writing why I'm saying it because I only have about three more minutes

Listen to me

the most important thing is is to be able at any moment to

Sacrifice what you are for what you will become

That's the number two thing, you've got to catch that one

To be able to listen to me at any moment

Some of you you can make sacrifices when Monday Night Football is not all you can make a sacrifice

But when the game come on for some reason you just attach to it

For some of you when your favorite show come on you can be you can make sacrifices on Sunday when they not going on

but when your favorite show comes on Monday BAM

Some of you focus into the phone ring and you like I gotta answer it if I don't answer the phone, I'm gonna die

I'm saying you today that there's some of you if you give up your cell phone you would be successful

But your cell phone is more important to you than your success

I'm gonna sit against I'm gonna hurt somebody I'm gonna hurt somebody

Some of you need to give up your cell phone because the time you spend on your cell phone could be used for your success

The time you could be using

to be successful you're using on the cell and the cell phone is not bringing you nothing but a bill and

Somebody has told you you couldn't live without it

I'm sorry going deep now giving up stuff

Watch what it says to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could be

I don't do well in math. You're right. You hadn't never studied

I'm not good in writing because you have never written before

But I dare you to fail in writing for a whole year to see if you can get to the end I

Dare you to fail my dad you take that same class over and over guys

I dare you to stop dropping classes. Like you saw I

Always want to give up. I'm dropping. Why are you dropping?

I'm so grateful that the sliding's didn't drop and quit say I'm just gonna stop I'm a slave. I'm just gonna be a slave

I'm a quit. Listen to me. The slave said we will live because one day we will become rule number 11 push through it

There's anything in life that you don't currently

Now it's because of who you are and how you think

Come on right now you saying et man? You talking to me man? I'm going through some type of pain

I'm ready to quit and give up. Let me see. You ain't I'm ready to quit and give up

Let me see n something in life. I'm ready to quit on give up on come on raise your hand

I'm ready to quit on I'm ready to give up on it. Come on, raise it up

alright

What I need you to do is I need you to find a reason to keep going and if you can find a reason to

Keep going

I know you're strong enough to do it cuz you helmet

then every human has what it takes to get past whatever they going through if they decide to

push through it

Rush through it

Tragedy and trials come to everybody only the strong survive why I watch my wife when she got diagnosed

I watched my wife have terrible days and she didn't probably miss two days of work the whole time. She had MS

I watched her go to work and I'm like boo. Why in the world would you get up and go to work?

You don't even need the money

Why would you do it is cold?

His 10 degrees in Michigan and your MS flare-up when it's cold. What are you doing? She said I can't see my daughter

I can't have my door to see me weak

Is my daughter gonna be married one day

And my daughter gonna face tragedy one day and I have to show her how to do it

So I get up and get dressed and I'm gonna work every day

So my baby girl can know how to get through trials

Cuz one day she ain't gonna be under our roof and she gonna have to do it alone

And I don't want to talk. I want to model what it looks like

My daughter got on the prayer line through the prayer meeting up today told her testimony

So I you and you feel like going to school

I feel like walking a mile to go to class and I thought about it. My mom got a chronic illness

My mom and her forties can get up with a chronic

Illness and go to work while surely I can get up at 18 years old and go to class

It worked

It worked

It worked

Listen to me very closely y'all running from obstacles

when in fact is the obstacle that's gonna take you to the next level like y'all running from pain y'all running from

Challenges you telling me how difficult your life is. Do you understand?

It is the difficulty that's gonna prepare you and take you to that next level. Why do you keep crying mommy God?

Why don't I get you man? Why don't I get cancer? Why did my mama died? Why did I get fired? Do you understand?

listen

You got through that you got put through that because what that does that tension produces brightness?

Not running from it and run through it. Y'all y'all got it hear me

The reason why you do what you do is more critical than what you thought and if why you do what you do is weak

I need you to go back and start all over again because if your reasoning is weak, you're not gonna get it done

Why?

Because light is going to beat you upside your head and I'm gonna tell you this I don't care who you are and what profession

You in before you blow up light will strip you to the core

but if you wait

you will be broke and I'm not here because I'm the best I'm here because they tried to break me and they could

rule number 12 be ready to seize all

Opportunities many of you have a very small opportunity and you're not taking advantage of that opportunity

Because you're not thinking about the next opportunity looking at this as small

No, this is the gateway like this is the first one right so you got to ask yourself this question

Like how do you keep that fire? You know how you keep it?

You keep putting different opportunities in front of you. You keep setting different opportunities. Anybody know who this is

Yeah, you sure here in the Big Ten. He gave us the business. You should know he is yo, yogi. Ferrell didn't get drafted

Didn't get drafted to the NBA

Didn't get drafted, but they just something happened the other day to Dallas Mavericks needed a player they gave my man a 10-day contract

I much did he make

Know how much LeBron make it a million. They are my men looking for 10 days

You just wants you to play for somebody got hurt. We are gonna bring you in for 10 days

He'll say you got 10 days ride the bitch, you know do your thing, but you only got 10 days. Don't get your hopes up

My man been coming in I'm talking about

Schrick, boom not only three-pointers like daggers 2 seconds

Boom the 10-day contract then turn it is boy bout to get a contract. What are you doing with your opportunity?

We all get one we all get your 10-day contract

But the question is with our 10-day contract run into a gear contract when they turn into a two-year contract

You think yogi Pharaohs the only one who's got the opportunity to come from the Developmental League and play?

No, you think other people doing Lee doing no why because they weren't prepared for what are you doing in the dark when nobody's watching?

What are you doing in the dark 10-day contract, but he didn't come in and say I only got 10 days

That's what some of y'all own. Oh just only got 10 days. I might only give 10 days work for effort

I might as well to give 10 days worth the energy Yogi

Berra was like I'm about to act like this might be my last shot

I'm about to act like I'm starting. I'm about to act like LeBron. I'm about to act like Kyrie. I'm about to act like Stepford

Somebody gave me a four-year degree. I turn it into a master's degree. Somebody gave me a master's degree

I turn it to a PhD you got the opportunity what you're doing with it

Opportunity is government will you'll be writing when it comes rule number 13, don't do it alone

Are you hearing me and I feel you I feel you like you feel like like if you do it by yourself

For real like you don't have to deal with people

You have to go through some of the stressors of dealing with people on you

Like I just want to be by myself

I want to do it by myself and look I'm not mad at you

But I'm telling you there's a level that you can get to alone and then there's a level you can get you

But your marriage might not be I'm gonna get you on all fronts

rule number 15 face your fears where every milestone

While you might be excited about the milestone, there's a part of the milestone that you don't want to face

Are you hearing me and listen to me? I'm not out the coursework. Boom. Got it done in order

ET why did it take you two years?

ET after you finished your coursework. Why did it take you two years to get started with the dissertation?

I'm gonna be 100 with you there one look knocked all the coursework out

But when I finally got to the dissertation I had to get to that demon I had to deal with it

I had to face it face one. We're not talking about elementary school middle school high school

I've had a professor or two tell me in college

that you will never get your dissertation that that that while you're writing has improved but in terms of your

Analysis, like you are not critical enough to do a dissertation. Are you hear what I'm telling you? We're talking about look math

I love math coming up why it is what it is

So, please excuse my dear Aunt Sally like it is what it is. Right? It's not subjective writing is subjective

I've had teachers to look at my work and and ship it in the park and the fear to fear what the fear of rejection

Right. This is if my teachers were so subjective. I put my whole heart into it

I put everything I could push and they tell me edit it again a

revision after revision

add it after edit our you hear what I'm telling you I had to deal with the fact that

writing has never really been my strong suit and even though I've worked hard and I'm putting in hours and hours in the back of

My mind I in the back of my mind I could hear the teacher say et

You'll have what it takes to get a dissertation. I'm a grown man dealing with that fear

I'm a grown man of dealing with the rejection of getting all that read

All that read on my paper of having to do it over and over and over and over and come on

Come on. Somebody fills me you feel like you'll do a hundred and twenty percent

You'll give everything you have and it still won't be enough. I feel you

I was there a part of the milestone is what does I give everything and it ain't enough?

what if I put my whole heart my whole my

Solar to an ET and it's not enough. What am I doing? And I fail

And so I feel you so you're just like you're not gonna do it at all

Because you rather not do it and find out the truth, and I'm telling you got to do me a favor

We gotta face your fear and you guys do it. Anyway, you're sweaty. Had to face his fear. That's right. Yup

I know you CET be small and you write I am be small

But it don't mean be smart without fear and don't mean be smart without lure anxiety

It don't mean be small and I'm just 120 percent. Sure

No, I have to live by faith - and I made up in my mind ET you've got to go after eat

Look, I finished my coursework

It took me two years why cuz it took me two years to get over the fear

It took me two years to get over the anxiety it took me two years to finally say Goliath here

I come Goliath you might be taller than me. You might be bigger than me

You might be stronger than me, but I'm coming and I'd rather die trying

I'd rather die going after this dissertation. I'd rather give everything our guy really give a year

I'd rather put in work and

fail

You cannot try it off rule number 16 focus on the positives

Where your focus goes your energy flows?

and so if you focusing on the negative guess what's going to happen your energy is going to go to the negative of everything and

Everything is gonna be negative because that's where your focus is. That's where your energy is flowing

Listen to me if you think about that thing with you concentrate on winning you concentrate on

Dominating listen to me

Whatever you focus on your when your focus goes your energy flows

And so we gonna think about what we're thinking about you hear me

We're gonna think about what we're thinking about

And when we think about those things which are pure listen to me come all that stuff. That's true. Right. Are you whatsoever?

Things are pure whatsoever. Things are true. Whatsoever. Things are lovely whatsoever things of a good rapport

Are you hear me meditate on this stuff focus on this stuff?

It don't mean negative thing will happen, but we not focusing on it

Are you hearing me and don't mean that negative things won't transpire that as you go through the day something bad will happen

But we're not gonna meditate on it. We don't focus on what's positive

we gonna focus on what's good, right and when we focus on that

That's where our energies gonna go and what's gonna happen is the outcomes are gonna reflect our thinking rule number 17

You've been getting up in the morning four straight years. You've been grinding four straight years

You've been eating different for a straight years

You've been in the weight room boy straight years you've been going in and you ruined it all

you've ruined all with false start and you can't say well I didn't mean to do this it I didn't mean to do that and

I made a mistake. There are no mistakes

And that's why I get so passionate because in the real world

You don't get five six seven chances and some of you were going through life

You wonder why you're not

Successful you wonder why you average you wonder why you can't live the way you deserve to live

You wonder why you would lie

I my heart's in the right place look in the real world is like track and field

They don't care you get one call star boom and you out so your boy et is passionate

why do I tell you that you gotta make

Sacrifices and you got to get up to three o'clock and fork hot and you gotta grind eat

You don't always get a second one. You don't always get a third one. You don't always get a full when yes, it's tough

It's hard. Listen to me if it was easy to stay focused when it's done

Sacrifice if you can grind your way through it, so like who say no no excuses. Just

He had one of them are the heart

I had to shut the noise down

I had to shut it down when I shut it down when I shut certain things down in my life

Boom, I went to a whole other level rule number 20 leave your mark and there those of you

Who don't understand the power of your wife and what I need you to do for me

Is that when you make your moves on a daily basis, I don't need you to make them with you on your brain

Because if you're thinking about you

You might quit well if you think about you

You might give me 80% right if you're thinking about you like real you you won't you you selfish

like really some of y'all you go to work and you like I don't feel like going to work and

The reason why you don't feel like going to work as you own you

So you cannot want to go to work and then when you go you like real this is what people don't realize

We didn't blow up because of what we do we blow up because of the passing in which we do what we do

You want to say like all we do is free videos on YouTube. That's it. But the passion in which we do free

You not gonna give people to do it the way we do it. That's given Hey, we're not getting paid no money

But we bring it in F look eight years. We've been bringing it

You got secret to success video to guru enviro you got our what's your wide at with viral? You got the st

Louis boy that went viral are you hearing me gracious is a party that went to all

It's for free what we do it with pass

so you're going to work with a attitude and you don't get it you so

Selfish that you can go with a attitude because you're not thinking about the people behind you the reason why you saying no to stuff

The reason why you pushing the snooze button the reason why are you still going to work?

trippin

The reason why you ain't blow up is because you still own 70% You still own 60%

You want to know why the world's passing you up?

Because whatever you do for a living you barely doing it you come and you don't want to be there

You're not bringing the fire. You're not bringing the passion

You're not bringing the heat and the reason why you're not bringing because you're thinking about you

You have not blown up because you're so self-centered

It's always about you you so conceited you're so arrogant. Your whole life is about you and that's why you haven't gone nowhere

But when you learn to think about somebody else how what you do affects how you're sleeping in the bed affects somebody else life

How you hitting the snooze button? It's affecting somebody else's life. How you being lazy?

She gotta walk past you to go to work you

Still own that your mama got to get up and go to work to provide for you

My mama worked for me I created a job

So what my mom finished working when she retired from where she didn't want to be she could not do what she liked to do

But I'm not about to compromise because you've inflicting pain and then those of you you were this close, but you compromised

You let your feelings get the best to you you compromised

You compromised you let your anger make you say something that you didn't really want to say

You let you let the fact that you was lonely you got lonely you did stuff that you know

You probably wouldn't do some of you have sold your greatness and your destiny for a couple dollars

And what I'm doing now, I was doing 20 years ago, and I have not been I didn't break

So what you don't understand why I'm doing what I'm doing

So what you don't see my greatness so that you don't understand how I do what I do. This is what I've been called to

And you let her live pain stopped you from your dream God it was there. He was running your business you were there

And your mama didn't like the fact that she was doing to your mama to understand and you let your mom in your ear

Like it was your mama's dream

You let your daddy talk you out of it

That was yours

That was something to creator gave to you that belong to you. My mother never understood, but she worked it for me now

I didn't quit

because people in understand I worked harder when people didn't support me we've never stopped I wake up every single day and I will

Prove to the world that I was here. I made my mark I was here and you can't take that away from me

last year the greatest news in the NBA

The greatest story in the NBA last year was what brightest story told in the NBA last year

Offseason was what Kevin Durant left go to Golden State

Durant like I'm out. I don't know where y'all come from but that hurt our because they supposed to be boys

Look at this picture for a minute because this way if you're gonna be successful

This is where I need you to go right here. What a pig

This was the one when you play your boy first game you and your homie was cool

Right, and this is where you emotionally cut it

This is when you cut my man this will you see my man? And he's trying to be cool

He trying to act like he leave you high and dry. He tried to act like the girls in the dreams

y'all have this the one where he clap it and you look my man in space and say you get it to me and that's

What most of you will never be successful?

Cuz there's some stuff in your past. You keep holding on key and you got to get to a point when you read it

Right and you ready to get to the next level he looking people used to be close to and say you dead to me

You did

42 triple doubles we shouldn't even be talking about the MVP

Ain't nobody else even if somehow make it close to the MVP the NBA is rigged and I'm through with him

Hey summer, many beginning a season come on. I'm to my high-octane

They said if he keep going at all season was laughing. They said he keep running him stuff like that

We're gonna burn out my man ain't burnt out

He don't look like any clothes to burn out

But you know why they said it cuz they can't operate in that level for that long home

So people were trying to put they limitations on you. I can I can do six gigs

I can do stuff we can leave here tonight. It would take me to a church. I give you another hour

You can't do it. Don't put your limitations on me. I'm dead to your limitation. No limitations don't

In my world. Those are your limitations keep them. Don't old watch them on TV

Go home, read the newspaper, but go home and look in the mirror go home

Call your homeboy and y'all talk about your lemon taste. I got nothing

I get off the plane from board to Dubai and get on the ground and I hit it

And some of y'all hold on the stuff you should be holding on to it should be dancing now

I'm gonna go do a funeral if you need to get rid of that junk like Barry you have you got to do

But it's weighing. You know, it's killing you every day you waking up thinking about it. You shouldn't be thinking about it

No more. It should be dead to you move on

And move towards your grave. I forget those things which are behind and I press I

Press toward the thing. I press I don't got time for that no more. It's not personal

I got nothing against you. I don't ain't you but I love me

Rule number 22. No you're amazing

Look, you don't even know what to do. If you don't know who you are

And so I want to tell you if nobody's told you perhaps your mom didn't tell you today

Perhaps your dad didn't tell you today

I don't know maybe he teach you how to attitude and she didn't say it before you left school, but you are

Amazing. Yep. I said it bring it in. I said it you are

Amazing. That's right. I'm gonna say it again you are

Amazing and you need to understand something. I do not get paid to do this. I've been doing this for eight years

I have no sponsors. I don't think somebody sent me like five dollars to do this. So et

Why would you keep doing it year after year?

Month after month week after week watch because I know something about you that you may not know about yourself you are

Amazing and it's time for you to act like you're amazing. It's time for you to do the amazing, right?

It's time for you to know you are amazing. So listen to me

I'm gonna give you an assignment, but before we go there I gotta let you know, I'm telling you the truth

I was a high school dropout when I was homeless right when I was getting kicked out of school

I'm just gonna keep it 100. I did not know I was amazing

I told you before no disrespect but my biological father won in my life

So I didn't have him to tell me when I got up every day et

You are amazing like me and my mom had some challenges. So my mom wouldn't necessarily telling me you are amazing

Right, and so I was eating out of trash cans right? Listen to me. I was getting kicked out of school

like I was in the mall stealing from the morgue giving trouble getting arrested listen and some

Pastor brought me to church right and I'm telling you my man would tell me on a weekly basis you are

Amazing and it's time for you to act amazing and do the amazing

So I wanted to say this to you real quick. You are not your test score. Are you hear me? Look et

I've never done well on a standardized test you are not your grades

You are amazing you you're not what happened to you where you were born?

What circumstance you come from? You are amazing you hear me?

You are amazing and the day you recognize you're amazing the day you understand how amazing you are

Everything changed and I said if they didn't change my test scores didn't change my grades didn't necessarily change like that

like I miss when I became aware the fact that I'm gifted that I'm

Special and I need you to understand something when you recognize who you are when you when you realize how amazing you are

There's certain things. You're not gonna do no more when you recognize how amazing you are. There's certain people. You're not gonna hang around

No more when you realize how amazing you are. There's just certain things. You're not gonna do no more

Because Eagles and pigeons don't run together and when you realize sweetheart

Like we're just sit down. I don't care about your teacher

We're talking about your grades right now not talking about what you did in school what you didn't do in school

You're not talk about where you were born where you come from. We're not talking about that. Look look. Look. Oh all that aside

I just want you to write down. I'm amazing why I'm a beautiful person. I'm amazing. I'm intelligent in my own right? I'm amazing

I'm an artist. I'm amazing. I do music. I'm amazing. I love people like whatever. I don't know what it is

I'm amazing heat deep everything that makes you special

everything that makes you you

That I want you to get up. Listen to me. I love you guys

That's why I do what I do not time for you to recognize how amazing you were right, so just do that for me

Just write down how amazing you are

I just want you to look at in the morning look at it at night look at it in the evening

I'm not telling you something I read in a book or something. Somebody told me

I'm telling you I went from being who I was to Who I am now

Guess what my biological father never came back in my life

Like I'm being 100 like nothing changed

But I woke up one day and realized yo e so what your father wasn't in your life. You're still amazing

So what you got kicked out of Detroit Public School, it's still amazing

So what you ate out of trash can it's still amazing and there's nothing your circumstances could do about it

It's sort of different between the oeg and the new et. Is that I know by the grace of God. I'm amazing

You were amazing - so I need you to do me a favor. You start acting like it

It's your boy et saying I love you

I believe in you and now it's time for you to believe in yourself rule number 23 commit to greatness

Now a lot of young people are the black mamba the Black Mamba

Let me tell you something when you talk about the black mamba you talk about practice

It's a must have I watch this dude lose a game a game. I don't even know if it was the playoffs

I think it was like a regular game against the Miami Heat in Miami, South Beach, Florida

I don't know if you ever been there before but it's you want to go

It's a nice place to just hang out

Especially if you on the road playing ball, it's a nice place after the game to go get dinner sit on the beach

It's the night and I'm sure of you in ba. They've probably got a VIP section for them on the beach

And unfortunately

The Lakers lost to the Miami Heat because Black Mamba missed the wide-open shot in the corner set shot in miss knew

what he did for the next 3-4 hours why everybody was getting dressed and going on the beach he sat there for

Hours shooting the exact same shot over and over and over and over like here number one championship

I'd like now hold up where everybody else at for the Lakers

They need to be out there as a squad like up but the Black Mamba is out there doing this thing

Like I'm not on them I messed up I got to practice and this is not a coach practice

This is not an organism or the organization in Carles worth

This was just flat-out the Black Mamba was saying this is a must have and where most of you go wrong

you're not even 4.0 and you not studying like you're not even a

4.0 student

like you got a two point A to five a three something and you still not really study it like that because for you it's

Like eyes not a must-have

It blows my mind I worked with professional athletes I work with d1 athletes all over the world

And when I look at Twitter and Instagram, it blows my mind how dudes on Instagram

I'm like Ron you have not won a championship

Like that's what you come here for to win a championship

And so if you don't win a championship, I don't even know why it's people Pro

I don't even know how you have enough time to do a 30-second video you bro

How did you have time to do a video?

How did you have time like to do a dance routine when you should be practicing you should be lifting weights

You should be looking at film

You said not me that you want to win the tourney?

That you want to win at all you want to go to the Final Four?

How do you want to go to the Final Four, but your schedule don't look like the Final Four?

What are you tweeting about when you wrote?

Rule number 24 don't be average now. Listen what I want to talk to you night about is don't be average

Don't be average

Average people make a certain amount of money average people live a certain type of lifestyle and I'm not disrespecting average people

I'm just saying if you have a choice, don't be a verage because in life when you roll the dice worst case scenario

You're gonna land

So don't be average because if you don't try you will get to average

Right. So let's not shoot for every because average is gonna be there. So I need you to be what what's the P word?

I need to be what come o I need you to be what?

And I don't need you to be nothing else when you do your job you do it in a way where note that you cannot

Get fired talking to my wife to dislike. I want you to clean up

I'm like we bout to get into it's like one split

I'm like how because I know you wanted a different way than I do it I clean a bitch

I'm just being real I clean after so when you say clean you have to break that down because I know with my cleaning yo

Clean, it's two different links

No, I'm trying to help you. It's two different clean. My wife say you don't clean you shit

So you take stuff from one area and you put another in that area clean with another area

When I clean you don't see nothing. Everything's gone some of you when you get a job you shift you don't clean

So I need you to find out what productive is when you get to that

Internship you get that job you get in that relationship with that female that male whatever you do

I need you to find out what for done not what you think product of you find out what's really productive you do that and

You ain't going they can't get rid of rule number 25 don't dismiss your haters

Anybody got any haters in the building see em real quick God and your haters in the bill

Let me just see your hand real quick good right some of them down right just right and anger to God

I just said get it out your system. All right, let's get it out just said look people will hate on you

It's okay. As a matter of fact, I told y'all this before like do me a favor

Do not dismiss your haters because sometimes iron sharpens iron

Like sometimes you need to look pressure to get to that next level. So do me a favor

Don't just miss your haters some of the stuff they say is true. I don't just miss all of it

So I'm gonna stuff your haters say it's true. Let me tell you something

Some of your haters are gonna give you a perspective that your mama not gonna give you that your mama

She don't always tell you this

For most of y'all mamas now some of us have different models

But most of our mamas they're gonna tell us that like mama

How am I gonna do that with I'm saying most marvelous? They just gonna you know, baby, you're right

They're not gonna really chest on you. So you need your haters because your haters are gonna point out stuff, right?

So we're not going to dismiss our haters altogether. We're gonna listen to them. We're gonna hear what they're saying

We're gonna make sure that their perspective is not

Their perspective is wrong or right and we take the stuff that we can take the stuff that we can't use don't worry about it

rule number 26 set strong goals

I got an older white male keep probably in his sixties maybe right and my man says to me, you know

Like I heard what you say et. But how do you sustain it? I'm like, okay

I'm like I said, he'll only make sure I'm hearing what you're saying. He like you talk about

120 you talk about going harm you talk about having what you want being what you want. Do what you want

Okay, I get it. But how do you sustain it? I'm thinking is there real question? I said listen to me very closely

How did that start this whole presentation off?

He said write down the people name that you love I said, duh, if you waking up every day and think about your wife

No, how do you not sustain it if you wake up every day and you're looking at your son?

How do you not sustain it? You think I'm gonna put my kid's life in a hand some other man

do you think that's my role as a father just

Think my role is to allow my kids

to come here and pay all this money go to school and do everything they did and now they gotta go beg somebody else for

A job that's not my role or responsibility

To sustain it. What do you mean?

How do you not sustain I ask you why are you not pumped up?

Why you have days up I'm asking you why you get 70% you'll love nobody

Is there not somebody that you don't love more than yourself

Is there's not somebody you waking up for is it not somebody who's grinding for?

Somebody told me that they get distracted easy when you tense up the reason why you didn't distract me because you're not eight and nineteen

You wake up to every single dance

I gotta go deep many of you are getting these tracks here because you don't have something that's stronger than the fact

You need something stronger than the distraction you

Getting distracted with party you get distracted with spoken you get distracted with drinking you getting distracted with sleeping you getting distracted with video games

Wow because the video game is stronger than your goal

So my homies all the time bro didn't got to do it. Y'all be playing. I'm like forget about the money

You're just singing it. I'm for real. Probably blowing me off

Rule number 27 be driven to succeed. I want your Red Box about two months ago. I went to go

Give me a red box. I told see I was getting a red box and he joking you still getting ready Bob

I'm like, yeah, it was one red box

He's like Netflix. You ain't no Netflix. I'm like no, I wanna watch TV. Oh, I saw one watch no movie

I'm a little small computer a little small computer put it on TV and say I can put my stuff on TV

I'm gonna find one no auxiliary cord all running through my crib like that. He's like not a smart TV, bro

I'm hearing hey, I ain't got no Smart TV. I

Need you to hear what I just said. I got bread and I got the same TV

I bought when I'm gonna get out why cuz I could put on and that jump and come on y'all laugh you like

Why would you do a TV like that? Cuz I remember back in the day

We used to get the hangar with the aluminum foil and drop that Joker

Oh and this cloudy cloudy and you tryin to do what you gotta do. So what I got is ways

We used to have to this old school you had the turn to get the stage station to?

Then your two to seven

Right and that joint went off that night y'all team?

You don't even go on our TV like he left the whole egg on you see by the dawn's early light

then your TV go I

Could just go and catch me. I'll get a brand new one

But the reason why I don't do it is because of a healthy sense of scarcity is great

You get too much. You got too much. You get everything you lose your bites. I can't afford to leave my fight cuz another

And if they do it better than you might anyone had a life battery

My wife is retired at 45 cuz she got hit man. She cannot go back to work. I cannot let you beat me

So I'm not gonna go five three four columns

Scarcity you cannot have everything you see it's not healthy. There's a stencil. There's a part of lack that make you hungry

There's a plant eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that make you deeper than to do. There's eating five-star meal

Let me tell you something man. I promise me or everything I love

if I could do my life all over again, I promise I would I'm glad my dad I

Swear I'm glad I lived in a band of dude. I

Swear to you, I'm glad I got my period I would be way smarter

Looking at growing me and where they want to be in life and no part of they like and they waking up at eight and

Nine o'clock in the moon. I'm like bro what you're smoking. I

Thought you was a Christian you want no, no drugs. No drugs. Are you invested in you? Do you care about you?

So what you need to transition from which are entitled self what you need to transition from is friends and fun

You need to stop having it and till you get to where you want to be in life

You need to stop having all that fun and you need to just start making up in your mind. Just start saying you broke

Just start saying it because you probably are thrilled. Even if you got some money you probably got your parents stuff

It probably don't belong you which means you didn't earn it is what I'm talking about

So if you have something that you did not earn you have to stop telling yourself that you have

Something look you got to hear what I'm telling you. I'm trying to help you

I only take pictures of clothes that belong to me. I

Don't put my boys shoes on and then take a pic in it like their minds

Know and what I'm trying to tell you is you are broke

But you don't realize you broke because you're living somebody else's life

And if you're living somebody else's life

What you should be able to do is say I am grateful that this person is trying to set me up for greatness

But I won't fake it like it's my life

All I'm saying to you is when you act like you've got something that you really don't

Then you don't have the drive that it takes to be successful rule number 28 make a decision. Okay make a difference

Until you make a decision

You better hear what I'm telling you man, I'm talking about the secret to success

I'm always telling you how I went from one spot to the next spot and that was hit right there

Listen to me catch the first principle. You got it here. You can't make a difference until you make a decision

So for real some of you men you keep crying you complain about your job you complain about where you are financially

You complain about your relationships you complain about your opportunities you complaining complaining?

Complaining listen to me you murmuring and complaining you complaining and complaining it could put shut up

Stop complaining and do me a favor if you want to make a difference

All you got to do is one thing this side you can start it

You want some different listen to me. All you got to do is make a decision. That's it

And for those of you will be making the wrong decision

All you got to do is make the right decision. But if you want to make a difference make a decision

Are you hearing what I'm telling you?

What I'm trying to do for you to take you to that next level is I'm trying to give you control of your life back

Some of you you ain't got control you talking about your job

You got control listen to me. Some of you talk about your economics like you ain't got no control

You got a control?

I want you to know that your life right now the sum total of your decisions, not your mama decisions

Not your daddy listen to me

Even if you made a decision you decided to make their decisions, so I need you to me a favor

I need you from this day forward for the rest of your life make a

Decision and I talked about again something that I've read. I'm telling you what I experienced. I remember being upset

Okay, the word is pissed off. Forgive me. When the boss go tell me. I can't go see my daughter get her award

You heard me say it before it burned it burns. She goes

You can't go sit my daughters getting an academic award

Seven eight years old ain't nothing like having your daddy in the building and my boss telling me I can't go. So guess what?

I let it burn and then one day I made a decision and I made a decision to walk away

And let me tell you something. I walked away and two weeks later. The video went viral

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe with vibro

But it didn't go viral a job made a decision the video never went viral when I was complaining

He never went by when I was Merman

It never went viral when I was talking just to be talking but when I made a decision to walk away

when I made a decision I

When I made a decision to follow my destiny, I felt it calling me

My destiny was calling me and when I decided to stop letting it call me

But I chased after her we went viral make a decision rule number 29

energize

you give

70% effort the most the optimal that can come out of giving 70% energy as what

70% outcomes, that's it. So y'all got do me a favor career. I'm not playing like the energy y'all give off the subs

Like it ain't no other way for me to say it sucks and I don't care about the energy you giving me right now

But if you're taking this energy you giving me into the real world you gonna be average so when you get out of here

I'm come on I need energy

You don't have to be the smartest person in the world, but sometimes when you're smart people still don't notice you

People always notice what

Always if you're not careful, you'll get electrocuted

You have to pay attention to energy and things that energize

That's all I'm asking you to do

I'm saying most of you are not successful not because you have reached your highest level of success

You are not successful because you stopped focusing on it

You quit focus on you got a job and he just stopped rule number 30 find an accountability partner

All right. Y'all guys do me a huge favor. All right. Look, I know. I know the power one

Trust me, look don't get too analytical

You got to get it done by twos one of the greatest basketball players that ever played the game. Yep, Mike with joy

I

Yeah, as long as I was doing it by myself

I could never get that dissertation done the power of

To know man, and I mean it no man is an island

And let me tell you what changed the game would change the game is when I met with dr

June what changed the game is when I sat down with dr. June and I had some accountability. Can I say?

Accountability partner your problem is you're doing it by yourself

your problem is you don't want nobody to know that you got I know I know you're afraid for them to see your

Weaknesses. I know you're afraid to be vulnerable

Yup, you're afraid to tell them your dream. You look you got to tell somebody

Somebody got to hold you accountable

I'm not telling you to tell the world but one other person needs to know and one other person needs to hold you accountable

And my life changed

My milestone became a reality

Listen to me. I'm giving you the secret to success today. I told dr. June. I want to get it done. And dr

Jewel looked me in my face and said don't play with me. Don't play with me. Are you ready?

This PhD you tell me when you we finish with this dissertation

You tell me when you jump and I'll tell you how how I'll show you what you have to do every single day

How many are pages you have to write how much research I do how much time you have to spend on it?

Listen to me. It did not become a reality. It didn't become real into our sat down with dr. Jr

We made a commitment. Are you hearing me before it was just an idea?

before it was just a thought before was just something I said, but when I sat down a mile or in my know

Some an Elan OE motto man the man when I sat down

And I made that commitment and I shook his hand

When I looked him in his eyes and said I'm ready to get it done. All we did was meet every Monday

Are you hearing me? I know this sounds too simple. I know it sounds too good to be true

All we did was sit down on Mondays at nine o'clock and every single week

He said this is what you need to get done

If you are a man and you do what you said you gonna do and you make no excuses

And you don't let nothing get in your way

I

Guarantee you in a year's time if that's how long you want this process to take I guarantee you we can get it done

What I can't do is I can't do it for you

But I can show you what it takes to me and I didn't want there was a part of me that I never really wanted

To link up with nobody else because I really didn't want to fully expose myself

I didn't really he said to me kid. You've never written a dissertation before how would you know how to do it?

That's what I'm here for

and when you get that life coach

That's the problem with some of you you can't get to that next level because you're trying to do it on your own you're trying

To do it in your own strength

and I'm not saying there's no power and one mic was murdering the game putting up 60 something against a

Boston mic was dunk contest mic was doing it but might never reach those milestones by himself

He had to bring somebody else into his sphere of influence

I must break all barriers. Not most not

Most all barriers everything that's before my mama

my daddy all barriers my past I am I

Am the greatest that has ever done this not because I'm comparing myself to them, but ain't nobody like me

I am and your problem is you hadn't got to the I am yes

You hadn't even bought into it. And what I want to do before you leave is buying to 120% That's why you follow me

That's why you watch me because when I get up and talk

It's 120 percent when I talk you don't feel like he might not believe what he's saying

You know it you don't listen to me in the morning when you on that treadmill

Because you think I kind of think I know what I'm talking about

You are a hundred percent clear. Like yo E. He got some confidence like he walking with another spirit like he owns something different

What is he are?

I woke up one day when America said I can't wear a hat and shoes and I just had to say I am

You're trying to get information. First you reading books you haven't convinced you that you should be doing this

You haven't convinced you that you need to put the money here so you could get where you're trying to get to you don't believe

that you are and the very first thing that creator said was tell them I am rule number 30 to

Surround yourself with the greats. I gotta take y'all back somebody showing real quick lying and gizelle. Rah

Right. Y'all know I'm on that line a gazelle boy

The line is the king of the jungle, but I gotta be honest with you guys

I got to tell you the truth

Right and that's allottee the Tigers should be kept the Tigers should be this is gonna juggle dog

I'm just gonna break down how I got to where I am and how I'm about to get to where I want to go

So the tiger Ichi, what do you mean by that?

Well, do your homework in terms of pound for pound a mono e mono the tiger is ferocious

The tiger can take out the lion now go back and look at the tiger. I'm talking about it structurally massive

Well, you look at a tiger you don't see nothing, but I'm talking about muscle. That's all you see

I'm talking about muscle, but guess what even though a tiger probably could be the lion 101 these mano-a-mano

You know what? The problem is. The reason why the lion is a king of the jungle is not because I'm stronger

He's he's the king of the jungle if there's some problem

What's this Tigers run a loan and even though they're ferocious. They don't run in a pride

They're by themselves, right? And that's some of you right now you sweet

I'm not gonna lie you sweet

But you will be your same sweet for the rest of your life because you're by yourself you are alone

You're not with
