I was living my dream and one year away from inking my first shoe deal as a track and field superstar. On the outside, I was thriving, but my inner champion was barely pounding the surface. It took a 99% tear in my right quad muscle, a debilitating injury for a world-class sprinter, to uncover the depth of who I am. For so long, my life was one-dimensional— practice, training, rehab, stretching, race, win, get better, get faster. The injury left my confidence bankrupt and emotions starving. This was the start of building a sustainable foundation of the man I am now. I moved into a season of speaking voluntarily at local schools, giving them a watered-down version of my life with surface level motivation, never touching on my pain for fear of judgment. I believed no one would want to hear me speak, if they knew my truth. My mom was supporting her grown son. I was borrowing her car, while I was trying to rise back to fame. I felt like a failure, but still, I spoke. Instead of just talking about success, I began talking about the pain we mask and understanding that it all had a purpose. People needed to hear my entire journey. The highs and the lows. I started putting on Thrive Events and traveling around the world impacting tens of thousands of lives each year. I became an expert in habit improvement, discovering purpose, vision creating and goal setting. This is where I truly learned that thriving is more than just a gold medal. It is impact. It is life transformation. It is excellence. It is integrity. It is intentional living. Thriving is all the things most people forget when they are determined to achieve a great goal. These are the dimensions that gave me a life of purpose, and led me to training and speaking with organizations like Dick Sporting Goods, Nike, Raymond James Financial, Frontier Communications, iHeart Radio, US Army and FSU. "Surviving should not be your choice when thriving is in your DNA." Thriving is something I am seeking in every area of my life, not just from the stage or during one of my podcast episodes— it is all encompassing. Between my health, community outreach, and close relationships, thrive is not just something that looks good on paper, it is something I live by.

School AssemblyReviewed on November 24, 2021From Dover, OK

Charles was a class act right when he walked into the building. His material that he spoke about was spot on. He inspired a lot of people at our school. We will definitely use him in the future.
