An episode of Eric Thomas’s Thank God It’s Monday! Watch! Get your motivation!
Take a look!
Some fascinating things to notice on this list, if you’d like to compare and contrast it to the most popular talks in 2012, and to the list we shared back in 2011: Amy Cuddy, Susan Cain, David Blaine and Pamela Meyer are all newcomers to the list, with Cuddy’s talk storming to spot #5 thanks to you sharing it. Meanwhile, Brene Brown’s talk has doubled in its number of views since 2012, with Simon Sinek and Mary Roach’s talks coming close to that line. And finally, Ken…

I don’t know what to say really.
to the biggest battle of our professional lives
all comes down to today.
as a team
or we are going to crumble.
Inch by inch
play by play
till we’re finished.
We are in hell right now, gentlemen
we can stay here
and get the shit kicked out of us
we can fight our way
back into the light.
We can climb out of hell.
One inch, at a time.
Now I can’t do it for you.
I’m too old.
I look around and I see these young faces
and I think
I made every wrong choice a middle age man could make.
I pissed away all my money
believe it or not.
I chased off
anyone who has ever loved me.
I can’t even stand the face I see in the mirror.
You know when you get old in life
things get taken from you.
That’s, that’s part of life.
you only learn that when you start losing stuff.
You find out that life is just a game of inches.
So is football.
Because in either game
life or football
the margin for error is so small.
one half step too late or to early
you don’t quite make it.
One half second too slow or too fast
and you don’t quite catch it.
The inches we need are everywhere around us.
They are in ever break of the game
every minute, every second.
On this team, we fight for that inch
On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us
to pieces for that inch.
We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch.
Cause we know
when we add up all those inches
that’s going to make the fucking difference
between WINNING and LOSING
between LIVING and DYING.
I’ll tell you this
in any fight
it is the guy who is willing to die
who is going to win that inch.
And I know
if I am going to have any life anymore
it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch
because that is what LIVING is.
The six inches in front of your face.
Now I can’t make you do it.
You gotta look at the guy next to you.
Look into his eyes.
Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you.
You are going to see a guy
who will sacrifice himself for this team
because he knows when it comes down to it,
you are gonna do the same thing for him.
That’s a team, gentlemen
and either we heal now, as a team,
or we will die as individuals.
That’s football guys.
That’s all it is.
Now, whattaya gonna do?
Get your motivation!
You might need a little bit of encouragement, a little bit of momentum, a little bit of power to contiune with what you are doing. You might need something to drive you, to make you follow what only you are following. Not being determined will make you quit and you won’t get what you want.
Don’t let anyone move you from your vision, don’t let anyone disturb what you want to do or what you want to achieve, bit by bit, element by element, detail by detail. Do not second-guess about things, it will make you distracted, you won’t get yourself where you want. You will not get full potential of what you want to achieve. You will fail to get yourself pleased by what you accomplish, you might even let others down while you do not concentrate and strive on what you want. Do not quit, quitting is for losers. You do not want half of what’s important for you, you do not want just a part of what is ment for you, you want all of it. Don’t let others dictate what you want, don’t work for others, don’t think for others, do it for yourself.
Decide what you want! Make a decision on what you want, get hungry with it, with your passion, find it, breath it, eat it and when you think you’re done, do it again! Find the right motivation that makes you stay in the race, that makes you battle with everyone and everything trying to stop you and makes you want to win! Breathe your vision, your image of the achievement, the image of you accomplishing what you want to do, if it getting a new car, getting a new job, getting a new life, see it, incorporate it in you, start acting like you really want it, like nobody can stop you from getting it, decide you won’t quit even if the most awful things happen to you and you will succeed!
“I’ll tell you this
in any fight
it is the guy who is willing to die
who is going to win that inch” – Al Pacino, Inch by inch – Any given sunday!
Now get it done!
Writte down what you want to get, make a list of 10-15 things you want to achieve over a year. Write your motivation, your “Why?”, make it bigger and better everytime you think about your goal. Start listening to motivational speeches, you might think it’s a waste of time but repeatedly doing it will start making you determined and driven by with you purpose. Start going to seminars, motivation is right around the corner. Take action!
