I Want to See

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. Are you hearing me? Only those who are willing to risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. Look, you’ve got to want it as bad as you want to breathe. And you can go further than you think; listen to me, you’re in three and you’ve got six gears. But you’re accustomed to three, accustomed to four. I challenge you, I challenge you to push it to all the gears you got. Give it everything you’ve got.

Listen to me. Do you think I thought I was going to write a book? Do you think I thought I was going to be an author? Do you think I thought I was going to be marching this year with a PhD? Do you think I thought I would be traveling the world, NFL, NBA? Do you think I thought I would be doing this as a high school dropout, as somebody that was homeless – do you think I thought I would go this far?

But I pushed it! I said I want to see how far I can go. I want to see what I can accomplish. I want to see what I can do, what I can be, what I can have. I want to see. I don’t want to see what I think I can do. I don’t want to see what I think is possible. I want to see what my life would look like if I didn’t count the cost and if I was willing to go further than anybody else was willing to do. If I had the mentality that, ‘Eric, you’ve got to want it! You got to want it as bad as you want to breathe!’ And I woke up, and here I am.
