So, if you’ve never watched a motivational video or heard a word from Eric Thomas, I strongly suggest you do so. This Words of Wisdom clip may be a harsh one but I’m hopeful that it will give somebody the push they need to start taking personal responsibility for themselves in their dreams.
In life, it’s easy to blame your circumstances on other people. I know because I’ve done it. When things weren’t going well for me, I blamed my job, my bosses, family, God, literally everybody around EXCEPT MYSELF. I never looked at what I was doing wrong and what I could do better to erase the challenges in my life. “Here’s where you know you have an ego problem. When you keep facing a challenge, year after year after year, and it’s not being resolved, it’s probably you,” Eric shared. In this clip, he speaks on the importance of taking personal responsibility for the role you play in your circumstances.
That was me from 2013 to around 2017 and I didn’t even realize it. This was one of the HARDEST lessons I had to learn. Instead of pointing the finger at others for why things weren’t going right in my life, I had to look inside myself. I had to be honest and see what I could be doing better or what I needed to give up to reach my highest potential instead of just pointing the finger. I hope y’all do the same.
