Part of the speech of Eric Thomas:

Listen to me: PAIN is temporary. It may last for a minute, or an hour, or a day, or even a year; but eventually it will subside, and something else will take it's place. If I quit however, it will last forever.

Some of you are spoiled, your parents have done everything for you. We're going to keep it real. Some of you are spoiled brats. Every time you ever got in trouble, someone in your house got you out of it. Every time you did something you were not suppose to do, your parents got you out of it.

People say: "Hey your mother is a tyrant." YOU'RE RIGHT, she kicked me out. You're right, she's mean, but she developed a man. Because she put me out there and said, "you're going to have to grow up" And some of you have never learned to grow up. Every time something got hard you quit, you called momma.
I dare you to take a little pain.
I dare you.
I dare you not to go home. Somebody said "I feel bad, I'm gonna go home." GO THROUGH IT. You're not going to die.
At the end of PAIN is success.
You're not gonna die because you're feeling a little pain.
"I'm not eating like I eat at home" That's why you're about to go to the next level, because if you ate like you ate at home, you're going to remain a BOY or a GIRL. It's time to become MEN/WOMEN.

But I'm exactly where I want to be because I got to commit my very being to this thing. I got to breath it, eat it, sleep it. Until you get there, you'll never be successful in life. But once you get there, I guarantee you the world is yours. So work hard and you can have whatever it is that you want.
