Hear the story in their own words! In this short, powerful documentary with Eric Thomas and his mother, they re-live the journey that first divided them and later helped to shape the inspiration we know today!

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 its place. If I quit however, it will last forever.”

To hear my voice in so many motivational videos, I mean, it’s surreal.  When you are homeless, you know, sleeping in abandoned buildings. I had this thing that you know this is not going to be it for me like one of these days. But you say it and you mean it but you don’t know if it will ever happen or not. It’s just a dream.

Each time I would speak, I would just feel superhuman. I knew at 19 year old, as a freshman in college, this was something. This was a gift. This was something special. And I made up in my mind that instead of football, public speaking was what I was going to do. It was my hustle.

My name is Eric Thomas and inspiring the world is my hustle.
