I’m sure many of you have watched the popular Giavanni Ruffin workout video on YouTube. Ever wanted to know who’s the voice behind that? His name is Eric Thomas, and he’s an author and renowned speaker who is revolutionizing the motivational game.

Thomas recently released his new mixtape, “The Blueprint 2 Success.” The tape is an audio compilation of inspirational messages from many of Thomas’ most popular speaking engagements, which include The Jordan Brand Classic, Harvard University and the Toronto Blue Jays minor league affiliate. There are also clips included from John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as mixes from Adele, Calvin Harris, Drake and Wiz Khalifa.

“We really wanted to do something that had never been done before. We pride ourselves on setting the tone and being leaders, and the mixtape is a great example of that,” says Thomas, who overcame being a homeless, high school dropout in Detroit to get to where he is today.

Anyone can use a little motivation, and because Thomas’ style and delivery appeals to athletes, this is the perfect headphone filler for the coming summer months. “The Blueprint 2 Success,” mixtape is now available for free exclusively on
