Inspiration is something that we all need. No matter how old we are, how young or what our chosen career path is, inspiration and motivation is a big part of success. One man, Eric Thomas, knows this and has made a career out of helping to motivate and inspire others.

Eric Thomas is known as The Hip Hop Preacher. He inspires, he motivates, he educates, and he lifts up not only his community, but also young kids. His aim is to light a fire within people to help them achieve their greatest potential. He travels all around the world to speak to groups about becoming high performers and in turn they inspire those around them through their success. He has helped to empower Fortune 500 companies, organizations, schools, students and more. But what happens when the people you are trying to inspire don’t want to hear it? What are you supposed to do then? Well, this happened to him while on the road.

While he was visiting a school in St. Louis called Vashon High School, in 2016, he encountered something he normally doesn’t have to deal with in other areas. And he was bothered.  He was so disturbed by the occurrence that he stoped his entire speech. He couldn’t go on with the amount of disrespect he was receiving from them. He couldn’t believe that they didn’t care.  All many of them wanted to do was crack jokes throughout the important words he was trying to share. So he went off book.  And in doing so, he said some things he didn’t plan on saying. He tried to get through to them and it wasn’t working; the students kept disrespecting him.

So instead of continuing on, he had some choice words for the students. Watch below to see what he had to say.

Last week Baron Davis teamed up with Lili’uokalani Trust to put on a basketball camp for 100 local kids in Honolulu, Hawaii. We had a great time bonding with the kids and building relationships with the trustees. It was great teaching the game of basketball and life to a such a great group of kids.

For the first time in the illustrious career of Tiger Woods, he came from behind to win a major tournament. For Tiger, this is even a victory that he didn’t see coming. The past 10 years have seen Tiger Woods go from darling to pariah to a human being trying to climb his way back into greatness.

We saw glimpses of what could be last year as Tiger competed, but today Tiger Woods did what he hasn’t been able to do in ten years. Win A Major Tournament. How fitting that it is at the same Augusta National course that launched Tiger into all of our imaginations.

Tiger won this Masters with a consistent game that took him from wire to wire and eventually saw him closing the gap on the leaders. This was Tiger at his best form and breathing down the neck of those who couldn’t imagine that this Tiger was Back.

Congratulations to Tiger Woods for being back in the winners circle. From 1,199th to 1st.

Rookie of the Year Ronald Acuna Gets $100 Million Extension

Published

The Atlanta Braves shocked everyone last year when they came out of nowhere to win the NL East.

A big reason for the team’s success last year was the play of their great rookie Ronald Acuna Jr.

Acuna is a 21-year-old superstar and the Braves decided to lock him up right now to a long-term nine-figure contract.

Acuna would have been under his rookie contract through 2024, so this deal essentially buys out his first two years of free agency.

For a player of Acuna’s caliber, $100 million is a great team-friendly deal for the Braves.

This is not a one-sided deal though, as Acuna would have played under the rookie minimum for another two years before he made a significant salary.

There is not ceiling to Acuna’s potential, as he hit .293 with 26 home runs, 16 stolen bases and 64 RBI in his age-20 season.

Following the season, Acuna was voted the Rookie of the Year and now he has his sights set on an MVP. The sky is truly the limit with Ronald Acuna Jr.
