If you were to ask someone…”Which motivational speaker are you familiar with?” chances are you will hear the name Tony Robbins. Tony Robbins has done a great job in infiltrating numerous markets and marketing himself to the masses but we’re not here to talk about Tony. Instead, I want to share with you one of my personal heroes…ERIC THOMAS!
Why is he my hero?
Well for starters I am a huge fan of individuals who have started from the bottom and worked themselves up, defeating challenge after challenge as they break through obstacles. The fact that Eric was a High School drop out that ended up being homeless in the streets of Detroit and then went on to become the Motivational Speaker that he is today is nothing but remarkable.
While Eric Thomas may not be what some consider to be your typical public speaker due to his strongly passionate delivery, he has a way of sparking something inside of you, especially if you have desires to grow as an individual.
I have yet to see an online presentation of his that makes me laugh but I’ll tell you this I have yet to see one that does not light a fire in me to push myself to be the best I can possibly be in my personal and professional life.
Motivational Speakers come in all shapes and sizes!
I find it refreshing to listen to a motivational speaker of this caliber whose background does not include an ivy league education. Eric’s rawness and reality of life is something that can’t be taught in a school or learned from a book, it’s that very rawness and real-life experience that allows Eric to really connect with the heart of his audience.
