“You Owe You is a manual to help you understand your power and your purpose. It’s a guide, illustrated with many of my own struggles and triumphs, to lead you toward your why and bring you closer to fulfilling your potential. This book is for you, wherever you are on your journey toward greatness. It’s a book with an urgent message to stop waiting for the stars to align, to stop waiting for inspiration to strike, to wake up and take hold of your own life. Today. You owe it to yourself to become fully, authentically you. To live your life in the way that only you can live it.
... My message is that you are the only one who can change your life. You are the only person who determines your value. You are the only person who can truly choose your purpose and find your path to greatness. You are the only person who can identify your difference and use it to your advantage. You are the only person who can help yourself. …
In reality, there are many secrets to success. One of them is wanting to succeed as bad as you want to breathe. But this is only the beginning. Being successful is also about knowing that the only person in the way of your success is you. It’s about seeing your power, and then finding your purpose and walking in it. It’s about getting to know yourself, and seeing so clearly who you are that you can respond to the world around you and discover opportunity in return. It’s about finding your why—your reason for getting up in the morning and grinding. It’s about knowing when you have to give up something good for something great. It’s about stretching toward your potential. It’s about seeing that, at some point, you owe it to yourself to be great.”
~ Eric Thomas, PhD from You Owe You
I got this book after one of the members of our Heroic community encouraged me to spend more time exploring and sharing wisdom from Black authors.
She recommended some books and told me that I’d LOVE Eric and his wisdom.
Thanks, Miata! You were right! :)
Eric Thomas is a FASCINATING human being.
As per his bio on the back flap, he is “part coach, part preacher, all grind.”
He’s one of the world’s best-known motivational speakers. Better known as ET, he’s inspired millions of people with his creative style and high-energy messages.
His raw authenticity is incredibly compelling and this book is fantastic. (Get a copy here.)
The book is PACKED with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites, so let’s jump straight in!
