On this edition of Power Players Grant Cardone interviews The Hip Hop Preacher—Eric Thomas. He had a difficult childhood and eventually ended up homeless eating out of trash can. He had a victim mentality that so many struggle with in poverty and in fatherless homes. Now Eric produces massive success for himself and others speaking at churches, schools, and wherever else there is life—he goes to motivate and inspire. American success is real but you have to go out and get it. Eric Thomas grinds to the grind. He says you must have Intrinsic motivation. Don’t grind for the wrong reason. Don’t make excuses. Outwork and out hustle people. Excuse are everywhere and people complain about not having enough support. Most people want the reward, but not grind. They want the lottery. Shoot for the Nobel Prize. It is about changing people’s lives. Eric says the problem with education is that for many students there is no clear purpose, you go to school because you have to. Eric had to be rich because he decided he couldn’t be stuck at a job—he wants to own his time. It’s not just about having a nice house and nice cars, being rich allows Eric be able to buy his wife the expensive medication she needs. TGIM is better than TGIF—keep grinding!
