  • Somebody answer the question for me.

  • He said, "When you were underwater,

  • "what did you want to do?"

  • [audience mumbling]

  • Leave? I'm looking for a different word, though, than that.

  • - [Woman] Breathe.

  • - He said, "I wanted to breathe."

  • He told the guy, he said, "When you want to succeed

  • "as bad as you want to breathe,

  • "then you'll be successful."

  • I don't know how many of y'all got asthma in here today,

  • but if you ever had a asthma attack before,

  • you short of breath, SOB, shortness of breath.

  • You wheezing. (wheezing sounds)

  • The only thing you trying to do is get some air.

  • You don't care about no basketball game,

  • you don't care what's on TV,

  • you don't care about nobody calling you,

  • you don't care about a party.

  • The only thing you care about when you trying to breathe

  • is to get some fresh air.

  • That's it.

  • When you get to the point where

  • all you want to do is be successful

  • as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful.

  • I'm here to tell you, number one,

  • that most of you say you want to be successful,

  • but you don't want it bad.

  • You just kind of want it.

  • You don't want it badder than you want to party.

  • You don't want it as much as you want to be cool.

  • Most of you don't want success as much as you want to sleep.

  • Some of you love sleep more than you love success.

  • I'm here to tell you today if you're going to be successful,

  • you've got to be willing to give up sleep.

  • You got to be willing to work off

  • of three hours of sleep, two hours.

  • If you really want to be successful,

  • some days you gonna have to stay up three days in a row.

  • Because if you go to sleep you might miss

  • the opportunity to be successful.

  • That's how bad you gotta want it.

  • You gotta go days without, listen to me.

  • You gotta want to be successful so bad

  • that you forget to eat.

  • Beyonce said once she was on the set doing her thing.

  • Three days had gone by, she forget she didn't eat.

  • 'Cause she was engaged.

  • I'll never forget, when 50 cent was doing his movie

  • I did a little research on 50, and 50 said

  • that when he wasn't doing the movie

  • he was doing the soundtrack.

  • And they said, "When do you sleep, 50?"

  • He said, "Sleep? Sleep is for those people who are broke.

  • "I don't sleep.

  • "I got a opportunity to make a dream become a reality."

  • I used to be a Cowboy fan.

  • There was a commercial,

  • Emmitt Smith had won his first Super Bowl,

  • and he had this commercial when he was lifting weights.

  • I don't know if you saw the commercial,

  • when he was lifting, and he said, Emmitt said,

  • "You know what, I won the Super Bowl,

  • "so I can rest now."

  • He was doing his bench press.

  • So he said, "So I won the Super Bowl so I can rest now."

  • So he throws up about 325, boom.

  • And he rests for about two seconds.

  • Then he's ... boom, boom, boom.

  • Did you see that?

  • He'd already won a Super Bowl,

  • he said, "I think I'm gonna take a rest."

  • And he rests for how long?

  • One second.

  • Most of you won't be successful

  • because when you're studying, and you get tired, you quit.

  • I'm here to tell you today, if you got a-

  • Somebody came to my office the other day crying.

  • I said, "Look, don't cry to give up, cry to keep going.

  • "Don't cry to quit.

  • "You already in pain, you already hurt.

  • "Get a reward from it.

  • "Don't go to sleep, until you succeed."

  • Listen to me, I'm here to tell you today

  • that you can come here, you can jump up, you can do flips,

  • you can be excited when we give away money.

  • Listen to me, you will never be successful

  • until I don't have to give you a dime to do what you do.

  • (audience clapping and cheering)

  • You won't be successful until you say,

  • "I don't need that money, 'cause I got it in here."

  • Listen to me, Emmitt Smith said this

  • at the end of the commercial.

  • "Some work harder in preseason."

  • I'm gonna say it again because you might have missed it.

  • "All men are created equal.

  • "Some work harder in preseason."

  • So that means that there are some people

  • you say, "I don't want to talk to your TA."

  • - [Man] That's what it is.

  • - I don't pay the TA.

  • I pay you to teach me.

  • So you gonna have to find some time to meet me.
