I’m a big fan of motivational speaker Eric “ET” Thomas because he’s honest and raw with his words and delivery. So it’s no surprise that he’s been featured on several Words of Wisdom posts on Imperfectly B. Here’s another great motivational video from him!
In the clip below, Eric talks about how we have to be willing to step our game up in order to reach bigger goals. What worked for us in attaining what we have now may not work for us in going forward with new ideas and dreams. “What you’re trying to do is do what you’ve done on this [past] level and get [to] the next level,” ET shared. We have to be willing to reevaluate our own work, processes, and habits and make adjustments where necessary depending on what our goals are.
I’ll speak for myself. In terms of my never-ending health journey, I realized that I had to get back to tracking what I eat (for now) and also two-a-day workouts (!!!) in order to hit a big weight loss goal I have in this first quarter. Let us pray. For this site, I know that I have to carve out specific times in my schedule to focus on content creation and honing my skills again. When you have bigger ideas and goals, it often requires bigger sacrifices and more time invested in the grind. It might mean you’ll need more creativity and more collaboration. It might even mean taking some huge leaps that you never thought you would (new job, new city, new friend circle, etc.). But IT. CAN. BE. DONE.
