060: Eric Thomas – All Roads That Lead to Success
“There is nothing wrong with dreaming big dreams, just know that all roads that lead to success have to pass through Hardwork Boulevard at some point.” – Eric Thomas
This was drawn by Inkology. Check out his Facebook page for more. It’s updated regularly.
I didn’t realise the quote in the comic was actually part of a longer quote or who the quote author was till after it was drawn.
Eric Thomas is a preacher and a motivational speaker. Nicknamed for his informal style of speaking, Thomas has also done a lot of volunteer work in his community.
Although I’m not a big fan of motivational speakers, Thomas’s quote really does hit home. In my study of success and successful people from all walks of life, every one of them went through or are still going through a period of hard work. Obviously, it’s better if you actually like the hard work you are doing. But it needs to be done one way or another, whether you like it or not.
As I have mentioned before, working smart can only take you so far. There is no replacement for hard work.
If you have a story of hard work, do share it with me below.
