    Big ups to you ET! One my biggest inspirations! Obviously everyone is unique and there can only be one etthehiphoppreacher, but I aim everyday to bring my fire energy to the world everyday similar to how you do! I know you and the team were puttin in a lot of work before the first video blew up to the world. I know one day, Ill be able to be in the same room as you but until then I gotta keep on working and admiring from a far. I dont even know if you or your team will even see this but just in case yall do, I appreciate everything you guys stand for and what you do. One my goals is to own land and eventually build a new age black wallstreet and build a community for people with health and fitness facilities, Workshops for digital currencies, real estate, stocks, financial advisory etc. I got a lot to learn but I feel with the way the world is going, this is crucial for the advancement of the next gen. A leader of the new school is the ultimate destination for myself. Keep doing your thing! As you are changing the world, youโ€™re inspiring someone like myself who wants to lead the world the change. MUCH LOVE โœŠ๐Ÿพ

    I love Eric Thomas he has inspired me alot because everyday i watch his videos and it keeps me going and it it helps through my pain he has taught me everything in life I'm glad he is what he is today because without him we wouldn't become who we are today stat strong people dont never give up in your dreams to achieve them once you achieve set on another dream and go chase it like my dad always said when I woke up when I got out of bed to get ready for school "son get ready for the big days everyday go and chase your dream or go back in bed and go back to and miss that opportunity of that dream." Makes me wonder if that's his real phone number

  93. Peter A

    Peter A2 months ago

    JESUS LOVES YOU!!! He loves you so much that He hung on a cross and took upon Himself all the sins you would ever commit, the question now is โ€œDo you love Himโ€? How do you genuinely show your love to someone? What is the greatest showing of love? The answer is sacrifice and then time. Jesus Christ paid the cost for us, through His sacrifice on the cross that we may live a life of health, deliverance and prosperity. How can you pay Him back? You can pay Him back through spending time with Him, thanking Him for the privilege of seeing another day, and by reading His word โ€œThe Bibleโ€. He offers you the free gift of eternal through having a relationship with Him, and partaking in this relationship immensely benefits you . He protects, guides, provides, heals, delivers, prospers, blesses you, and so much more. A true, authentic relationship involves communication on both sides. Jesus Christ is often taken for granted, many donโ€™t give Him the slightest of acknowledgement, regardless He is still merciful and loving. Seek Him, acknowledge youโ€™re lost without Him and destined for destruction, believe in your heart wholeheartedly what He did for you on that cross and His resurrection. Confess with your mouth that He is Lord, and youโ€™ve taken your first steps on that straight and narrow path to eternity in heaven with Him. And in this process your life will never remain the same, He will give you the Holy Spirit and grace, which will transform you and enable you to overcome sin, temptations and addiction and live a life that shows your love for Him. Slip ups happen, no one is perfect, but through asking for forgiveness and by His grace it will occur less and less. And you will enjoy pleasing Him and living a righteous life. You have everything to gain in Jesus Christ. Have a blessed day!!

    Once again someone is misinformed about the accomplishments of President Obama. First he inherited the Great Recession from the Bush Adm. Facts. Housing market crash, banks going under, all car companies and airlines going bankrupt, stock market around 8000 and unemployment around 10%. All these industries went to President Obama aka the government to get bailed out. Everyone of those situations were turned around and flourishing when he handed the reins to Trump. Donโ€™t let Obama having to juggle all those situations at one time make him seem skittish . It was necessary. Research it for yourself. โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ’Ÿ

    @Tim Bodison This could go on and on. I get it. You donโ€™t like President Obama as a Democrat, Black, White or otherwise. All good. No glamour involved he just did a great job under the circumstances in my opinion. And we all have one. Politics and Religion are very debatable subjects. In the end we have to take control of our on destiny. I enjoyed the convo. Take care โ˜ฎ๏ธ

  123. Tim Bodison

    Tim BodisonMonth ago

    @LUVR NU Wasn't Afghanistan still going on? Didn't he give the CIA full control of the International Drone Program? Didn't his mishandling of the "war on terrorism" cause ISIS? My original question about the Nobel Peace prize was to respond to how I feel people glamorize President Obama. The Great Recession he inherited was solved by allocating trillions to Big industry? Why would I applaud trickle down economics a Reagan policy, because the first black president went with it? Proliferation of war, CIA non oversight, backing dictatorship in west Africa, trickle down economics that widen the wealth disparity and mass immigration deportation (the most ever)....but at least he's black....๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ?

  124. LUVR NU

    LUVR NUMonth ago

    @Tim Bodison First you must understand the times. Iraq War. They said it was his change in international relations and agreements with United Nations. My opinion is he won it for changing the hearts and minds of all Americans and becoming the 1st Black President. Just my opinion. โ˜ฎ๏ธ
