There is one key factor that is under your control which will make your dreams come true. You must believe you can. All the physical exertion in the world will make no difference if your mind isn’t set to become the person you want to be. Drew’s guest, Cornell Thomas, is a shining example of ‘if there is a will there is a way’. Every single twist and turn in Cornell’s inspiring story is enough to make most people give up, but not him. He made adversity his teacher. He has transitioned from wannabe basketball player to head coach to professional speaker and author and the sky's the limit for what is next. During this conversation, he shares the power of his mother’s faith, the struggles he faced while working toward his dream, and why he shares his message with the next generation.
