This book, 'The Secret To Success' by Eric Thomas; is an inspirational story of one man's hard work and determination to come from nothing and soar to the top. This book is a step by step guide on how to live your life. Thomas isn't saying this is the only way to make it; but the knowledge contained in the book gives the reader an upper hand in the game called life. Admittedly,Eric confesses he has not lived a perfect life; but through perseverance and a few lucky breaks he made it out of the p..more

One doesn't go to McDonalds and buy a pizza, likewise, one ought not to go to a speaker and expect a thrilling book.
I'm a big fan of some of Thomas's material, I've even been to one of his live events and there's no doubt the man is a phenominal speaker with the capacity to inspire the masses but his book, like his material, lacks an overall message. The book can be guilty of slipping into the Eric Thomas 'I've made it' show, where the author proclaims his 'success'.. sometimes forgetting to ad

We mostly know ET for his phenomenal motivational speeches on YouTube. I remember the first time I got to see him speak was in an amateurishly recorded video, while he was giving his 'guru speech,' and I thought, 'Wow .. This guy knows how to pump you up. It's a wonder he's not famous.' Some time passed before I stumbled upon his YouTube channel 'ETTheHipHopPreacher,' and it was like a source of inspiration I would go to whenever I felt out of gas.
This book cast a whole new light on the challen

The Secret to success was a good book. Its very easy to read and understand, especially for people my age. Its a motivational book for young readers mainly. Eric Thomas provides you with many lessons and tips for life. He also connects them with past stories in his life. Not only does he have this book, he also has a few videos that are just like the book.
The book starts off with Eric's parents leaving for Chicago to visit his aunt Wanda. He throws a party while they are gone and tries to cove
If there is one thing you got to realize its this: Its amazing how much BS you went through and still end up being okay. Give credit to where you are now. You've gotten this far. You are much stronger than you think. Once you know this You Can Do Anything
Eric Thomas is down to earth and keeps it real. He doesn't sugarcoat pain, he acknowledges it, yet he doesn't let pain conquer. Its all about perspective :) 'Remember Pain is Temporary, Quitting however lasts forever'

Very inspirational book, the whole time I was hooked and sometimes had trouble putting the book down. Eric Thomas has a lot to share and just made me feel better after reading it and made me want to work harder. Easy read --> the book has a very good flow to it and while I was reading it I got lost to the outside world because I was so into the book.

One of the most motivational books I've ever read [listened to]. Eric Thomas tells us his story and the different things he's learned along the way (sometimes, the hard way). He overcame all sorts of adversity to make it to where he is today. Loved the story and the audiobook was extremely enjoyable with him narrating. Highly recommended; officially one of my favorites.

Great book, honestly at first I didn't know much about Eric Thomas.
But he went through quite a difficult life and this book really felt like he extracted each of those life turning lessons and shared them with us.
Solid quick read.
Dec 29, 2013Lee rated it liked it · review of another edition
Came across Eric Thomas through his inspirational youtube videos. The book clearly came off the back of the video's success, and gave deeper insight in to Eric's background and life story. While it lacked any tangible advice or direction, it was certainly a motivational read and provided a strong reminder to keep battling, keep pushing forward and keep working hard in the pursuit of dreams.
Some quotes from the book..
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
Part biography part instructional low level take-home points. Interesting life.

I listened to the audiobook and I imagine that this would be the way to go for this book. The audio version is narrated by Eric Thomas himself and his narration is rich and engaging. Here are some of the takeaways I enjoyed.
- Consider all the consequences of your choices. You don't know what you have till its gone. E.T ran away from home at the age of 16 only to realize how great, physically at least, his life at home was.
- Give to others. Be that good friend who supports and adds value onto o

Definitely a great starter read to those seeking self-help or inspirational books or even those in high school or college for sure. ET tells a great story and shares great advice but this is more of a success story versus shedding light on his secrets to success, although he does touch on that briefly throughout parts of the book. Part of me is glad it wasn't a 'step by step guide' on how to be successful or a 'What It Takes' book. ET gives off this energy that is untouchable and incomparable an..more

Eric Thomas' The Secret to Success was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm glad I stopped to read this inspring book. Thomas did a great job weaving in elements of his personal story to remind you he's more like you than not and assure you the principles were derived from real-life experiences not theories. There are moments when you fault the book's editor(s) for not doing more to help this first-time author with the structure and formatting of the book, but the errors often hint back to the..more

I've always been hesitant listening to or reading literature by motivational speakers because I feel as though it's the same general 'do more and you will become successful' tactics! But Eric Thomas has given me the much needed inspiration and motivation to believe again and that in order to succeed you need that 'can do' attitude. He has taken the desire to being the best at everything to a whole new level. I have accepted that failure is an option but only if you are willing to try again! This..more
I really enjoyed reading The Secret to Success by Eric Thomas. It was one of those books that the reader doesn't want to set down. Eric Thomas does a phenomenal job of using his path to success to pull out tips and principles that the reader can use to become more successful. He incorporates his real life experiences into the book to show the reader what he could have done differently and how he can learn from his past mistakes and failures. The book really motivated me after seeing that someone..more

A very easy read, but enlightening nonetheless. There are multiple lessons that one can learn from reading this book as well as tips about how to approach life and/or school. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever doubted themselves or felt indecisive at times in their life. The biggest of these lessons that I learned, there is no secret to success which I had already knew there wasn't one. Heart power is fueled by desire and desire along with heart will take you to your destination..more

I am giving this book a 4, slightly reluctantly. It was a good, descriptive book, but it wasn't what I thought it was going to be. His 'Secret to Success' is just an autobiography on his life. He does give some elementary life lessons, but they all aren't close to what this guy does on YouTube. I was hoping the book would be more like his speeches. I did enjoy the book, I'm glad I read it, but it really wasn't what I was looking for.
Mar 09, 2016Rick rated it really liked it
I'll forgive the numerous typos in favor of the message Dr. ET provides through his autobiography, which reminds one to develop and exercise grit through life's challenges and my favorite: 'If you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful.' It doesn't (and shouldn't) matter where you're from or what your upbringing was, but if you recognize you want to become better and you want your surroundings to be equally better, then you would do well to follow ET's example.
Great book if you believe in Eric Thomas' message! I had heard of his struggles through homelessness, and it was great seeing how he got to where he is now.
The reason I give it a 4 is because I downloaded the Kindle version which isn't yet formatted correctly. I would recommend buying the physical copy or waiting for the correctly formatted Kindle version

Inspiring autobiography by E.T. the Hip Hop Preacher. Since he is an inspiring speaker I chose to listen to the audio book version rather than read it. Besides, they were his words. Better to hear them in his voice.
Love ET's passion and heart for people. His story is very inspiring, giving one hope to accomplish whatever they put their mind to.
Loved it. Basically one of the best books that I have ever read (listened to).

A stellar life's story relayed by an exceptional individual. This book has achieved every bit of praise this writer could duly provide, and any compliment would be an understatement. Extremely applicable content surrounding just about every facet of life is simply the cherry on top to the no-b.s. delivery which Dr Eric Thomas offers in all content he creates.

At first, it started out as a bit of a slow read for me. I only took one note in the first 56 pages which is very rare. However, after getting used to his style it turned out to be a great read. Imagine a Napoleon Hill style book but with a different target audience. For anyone going through a struggle in life or, needing motivation, I highly recommend. I'll get picking up the next one too.

ET has been my motivator and life coach for a long time and his autobiography the secret to success is the best inspirational book I ever read .why it is the best ..let me point it out..
•Nothing in this book is made up.. everything is from his true story of rags to riches
•Not only is this book an inspiration one for the reader, it helps anyone to inspire anyone, all you need is some points from this
•It even shows you how to be the world's best teacher or speaker
The book is such a masterpiece

I still remember this story and the days I used to run while listening to this inspiring book. This book explains all the struggles, some of which I identified with a lot, set the tone for the rest of my journey in book. I never really got into book until I picked this one up or the ones that had been forced on me back in school. I am grateful I was in the right spirit of mind and dealt with my challenges. Just thinking about the audio reminds me of those times and the journey I have been on. A..more

Eric Thomas is like a salesman who can sell sand by the sea. The man is that good when it comes to motivational speaking and getting you to focus on your goals. This book will encourage you not to give up on your dreams. Main quote from the guru that stood out for me is 'If you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe then you'll be successful'. This is a great read for students, those who are feeling stuck in their career and those who feel that they are not good enough to be successful in..more
He is a great motivational speaker and I have been a huge fan of him for sometime but the book did not grab me like some of his other work. Now maybe that was part my fault looking for too much from this book but while it is great to hear his stories and him tie in some of his principles but I struggled to keep it going. I finished the book and don’t get me wrong I’m not saying it is not worth your time but don’t think of this as a special secret success self help book. This is more like an auto..more

“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen” - Michael Jordan”
“Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.”

“You can get through this. you are bigger than your pain, don't give up don't give in”
“I wanted to surround myself with the kind of people who could help me turn my life around; people whom I could rub up against like iron and be sharpened.”
“Your relationships will either make you or break you and there is no such thing as a neutral relationship. People either inspire you to greatness or pull you down in the gutter, it’s that simple. No one fails alone, and no one succeeds alone.”
“Don't make a habit out of choosing what feels good over what's actually good for you.”
“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful”
“I have learned over the years that the higher the level of emotion, the lower the level of reasoning. For example, if your emotions are at the highest level of 10, your ability to reason is at a 0. If it’s a 9 then your reasoning is a 1. I am not suggesting that emotions don’t have their place, but taking actions based purely on emotions is dangerous and could cost you everything.”
“Done is better than perfect if perfect ain't done.”
“I learned that a real friendship is not about what you can get, but what you can give. Real friendship is about making sacrifices and investing in people to help them improve their lives.”
“Can you honestly say the environment(s) you are in will yield the kind of harvest you are expecting?”
“Success, meaningful success, begins when we take ownership and actively take responsibility for our part in the shortcomings of our life.”
“I do not take constructive criticism from people who have never constructed anything.”
“Only when you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, will you be successful.”
“Be more intentional about the direction we allow our minds to go. Meaning, when you catch yourself thinking negatively, STOP. REDIRECT to something positive.”
“IDENTIFY your CHALLENGE area. Describe the thoughts that you commonly have in that area. Describe the things that you commonly say concerning that area in your life. (This can be things that you say to other people or things that you say to yourself.) Describe your behavior in that area (use action words). Challenge Area”
“I when you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe then you will be successful”
“Desire and imagination have the potential to position a person for greatness”
“There was a young man who, you know,
He wanted to make a lot of money
And so he went to this Guru, right.
And he told the Guru,
“You know I wanna be on the same level you’re on.”
And so The Guru said,
“If you wanna be on the same level I’m on,
I’ll meet tomorrow,
At the beach, at 4 AM.”
He’s like,
“The beach?
I said I wanna make money. I don’t wanna swim.”
Guru said,
“If you wanna make money,
I’ll meet you tomorrow. 4 AM.”
So the young man got there 4 AM.
He all ready to rock n’ roll.
Got on a suit.
Should have worn shorts.
The old man grabs his hand and said,
“How bad do you wanna be successful?”
He said, “Real bad”.
[The Guru] He said, “Walk on out in the water.”
So he walks out into the water.
Watch this.
When he walks out into the water it goes waist deep.
So he’s like,
“This guy crazy.
I wanna make money and he got me out here swimming.
I didn’t ask to be a lifeguard.
I wanna make money.”
So he [The Guru] said, “Come out a little further.”
[He] walked out a little further.
Then he had it right around this area,
The shoulder area.
“So this old man crazy.
He making money,
But he crazy.”
So he [The Guru] said,
“Come on out a little further.”
He came out a little further,
It was right at his mouth,
My man like,
“I’m not about to go back in.
This guy out of his mind.”
So the old man said,
“I thought you said you wanted to be successful?”
He said, “I do.”
He [The Guru] said, “Walk a little further.”
He came,
Dropped his head in,
Held him down,
Hold him down,
My man getting scratchy,
Holding him down,
He [The Guru] had him held down,
Just before my man was about to pass out,
He [The Guru] raised him up.
He [The Guru] said, “I got a question for you.”
He [The Guru] said, “When you were underwater, what did you want to do?”
He said, “I wanted to breathe.”
He [The Guru] told the guy; He [The Guru] said,
“When you want to succeed,
As bad as you want to breathe,
Then you’ll be successful.”
“Maybe, just maybe, I was pointing the finger because it was easier to make excuses than it was to make adjustments.”
