Charles Clark: When You Put Other People First and Put Yourself Second, You Can Still Win!

Rebirth With J.R. Martinez

By the age of 22, Charles Clark was a 3 time National Champion, 10 times All American, and placed as the 6th fastest man in the world at IAAF World Championships in Berlin, Germany. He was living his dream and was one year away from inking his first shoe deal as a track and field superstar. On the outside, he was thriving, but his inner champion was barely pounding the surface. He could not find the joy, the gratefulness, within the work he was doing because he felt like he was not good enough. Charles shares his journey from being ungrateful to blessed for every opportunity that has come his way; good or bad. Key Takeaways Charles was the 6th fastest man in the world.  You can have a God-given talent, but nothing comes naturally. You have to work hard to sustain it, develop it, and refine it.  Charles sustained a hamstring injury that could have prevented him from competing. This is how he decided to overcome it.  Charles was doing everything right, but he still couldn’t be grateful for what he had. This time, Charles found himself with another injury, and it was so bad that it ended his career. He was depressed, but he realized he had to change his mindset. How does Charles define purpose? When you put other people first and put yourself second, you can still win! By doing a speech at 24 years old, telling people his story, a girl came up to him and told Charles he saved her life. When did Charles realize that he should retire from track and field? The measure of your character is the true measure of your success. Charles wants people to overcome adversity. Adversity is a horrible thing to waste. Hardship might set you back but it's the very thing that will catapult you forward. It’s all about the process. If you don't go through the hard times, you can’t get built by it. Before Charles signed up for track and field, how did he discover he had this special talent? Focus on the small victories, gain confidence, and then own who you are.

Learn to Thrive Instead of Survive with Charles Clark

The Fit in Faith Podcast

The concept of thrive probably means something different to everyone. What is that thriving state to you? Does the word flow mean more? Does it make sense? But I feel like flow is missing this energy, this incredible electric opportunity, this purposed calling, and each and every one of us are intended to thrive. It's actually a part of our DNA. So says today's conversationalist, Charles Clark. He is somebody that I can't wait to introduce you to that I know is just going to create impact in your own life and really reveal this unique calling within you to thrive. And we each are gifted that and at the end of this year of 2020 to close out in this way just speaks volumes for God, because ultimately I couldn't plan this. I had no idea that we were going to do this podcast when we did. And it's just really refreshing to know that in the opportunity of thriving, which Charles has a Thrive Planner that he's created. He's about to launch his Thrive Journal. He has The Thrive Tribe podcast. He offers Thrive Conferences and retreats and all things "thrive." You have to unpack what that means and understand that when he comes to speak, he comes with fury. And that fury is the fire within him based on the knowing of who created him and you, too, have this beautiful opportunity to do it, to live life on purpose and just ultimately establish confidence in that space so you can activate every single day.Guest BioCharles Clark, the creator of the Thrive Planner and the Thrive Tribe Podcast, is an expert in habit improvement, discovering purpose, vision creating and goal setting.

Change your mindset, change your life w. Charles Clark, sprinter turned speaker (side effects may include serious motivation)

ALL IN with Natalie Allport

This episode is guaranteed to leave you feeling motivated! This conversation was definitely in my top 3 of the year, and I think you may agree! Charles is an incredible speaker who was once the 6th fastest man on Earth until a 99% tear of his quad sent him packing his bags to move back home to live with his mom, unsure of what life would look like next. He went from feeling like he went from the top of the world to the bottom, to reframing that perspective and starting to share his story and help others through that journey. As Charles became more vulnerable in sharing his story, others began to open themselves up to him as well, and he has now spoke on several stages, founded Thrive events, and created the Thrive planner!
