Where you start doesn't matter when you have the hard work and persistence to reach where you are meant to be.
eric thomas is the absolute perfect example of persistence even though the odds are against you.
eric thomas “failed his way through life”. he dropped out of high school, got kicked out of the house and was homeless, living in abandoned buildings.
it wasn't until he started going to church where he began understanding that his whole life up until then he had been living with the “victim” mentality. he surrounded himself with those who wanted him to succeed. he then went ahead to get his ged and at eventually end up at michigan state where his “when you wanna succeed as bad as you want to breathe” youtube video went viral and propelled him to where he is now.
he didn't let him growing up in the rough parts of detroit, michigan, against all the odds, keep him from achieving his dream of making an impact on the world.
