LIVE FOR YOUR PASSION
Finding your passion is a wonderful thing. However living for and actively participating in doing the activities you are passionate about is the greatest experience in life. You will have a sense of purpose when you discover and do the things that bring you joy and ultimate satisfaction.
ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOU
Too often people believe happiness and success are for other people or are based on special circumstances. Happiness and success are for you, and you can create the life you want. Your belief in yourself is the greatest factor, greater than any external circumstances.
GET UP AND PUSH ON
No one has an easy life or easy path to greatness. The road to greatness is always filled with obstacles & challenges. When you get knocked down; get up, continue in your pursuit and carry the lessons you learn with you.
ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOU

People called Charlie "Tremendous" because he called everyone else tremendous. If asked how he got the monicker, he'd blame it on a limited vocabulary: When someone told him they were having a child, he'd say "Tremendous!"... When someone got a promotion "Tremendous!"... When someone got married, succeeded at something, met a great mentor... all "Tremendous". And pretty soon, everyone realized Charlie was "Tremendous."

My Recent Events
Finding your passion is a wonderful thing…but the reality is living through your passion is easily one of the single most difficult decisions in your life. The truth is it takes character and sheer guts to live your most authentic life! I know, because I have had my share of moments, feeling insecure and inadequate at different times. I have spent years sitting in a cubicle doing work which resulted in zero personal gratification. I have lived with a dream buried inside under justifications and excuses and the simple fact is that I was too afraid to pursue what I really wanted. We all have to face that voice inside that questions whether or not we have what it takes to live out our dream. And worse – we wonder if we are worth it…The fight for the courage to go after what I believe in continues to happen in my life; but I have found the path away from worry, self doubt and fear.
I was raised in St. Louis County. My parents raised me to be courteous and considerate of others; my mom was instrumental in my life, she was the first person to teach me that I needed to have confidence in my abilities and to be free of others expectations or comparisons. In my tender youth it was a lot easier to absorb the notion that I could dream big and be anyone but as life changed and time moved on my responsibilities increased, my mistakes counted for more and my self-doubt sprouted. What I discovered and will show you as well is that love and self-confidence can grow in these same dark places. My belief is that motivation, inspiration and encouragement are like rain showers, and if we want to grow we need the nutrients from this spiritual rain. These downpours grow our spirit and rally our passion so that we become so on fire we can’t close our eyes without burning to be who we really are. The only problem is most of us are living in a drought – unable to fathom the possibilities and even more afraid of the consequences.
So what can I offer you? See, I believe we all have dreams – that’s not complicated or unique; the difference is that I can give you the skills, tools and support required to thoroughly explore that dream and more importantly face your fear. There is something that brought you here – a thought…a secret…a whisper…something swelling and churning…pressuring you to act. I know this feeling! I love this feeling and I am excited that you are experiencing this wonderful time in your life – because no one has an easy life or easy path to greatness; but through my speeches and certified methods I can help you stay the course. Some of the things I talk about are as follows:
*Failure Is Not Final Unless You Quit
