Charles Clark Biography

Charles Clark is a speaker and mindset coach, sharing his story of pain and struggle and how it led him to be the man he is today.

Clark was a 3-time National Champion, 10-time All-American, and the 6th fastest man in the world at the age of 22. Just one year away from landing his first shoe deal as a track and field superstar, he was living out his ultimate dream-- until he faced a 99% tear in his right quad muscle, a career-ending injury. The devastating loss left Clark's purpose, confidence, and emotions completely side-swept.

In the wake of the life-changing event, Clark began speaking voluntarily at local schools, giving them a watered-down version of his life with surface-level motivation, never touching the pain he was going through. He believed no one would want to hear him speak.

One day, he finally realized that people needed to hear his entire journey. They don't just want to hear about success, they want to understand how the pain Clark went through had purpose. That's when his whole agenda changed, and he started putting on Thrive Events and traveling around the world impacting tens of thousands of lives each year. He became an expert in the things that had some people stuck: becoming mentally strong, improving habits, discovering purpose, vision creating, and goal setting.

Outside of speaking, Clark's passion for student-athletes led him to create a non-profit organization that impacts thousands of kids across the United States every year. After struggling to get into college academically and turning to track and field to boost his confidence and chances, Clark passed his entrance exam to Florida State University by a single point and went out to make the dean's list and academic honor roll during his time at FSU.

Clark developed a passion for helping student-athletes like himself that also struggled to get into college. He wanted to give them the resources they needed to succeed, but also give them the encouragement they deserved to secure the gold metal in life. This passion led him to developing What Matters Foundation. Since 2019, he has had the privilege of impacting over 30,000 students, and has given away over $20,000 in educational scholarships and put together the largest student inspirational event in Virginia with over 900 attendees.

Speaking Topics
  • Building Skyscraper Relationships

    The “Building Skyscraper Relationships” workshop has been used with Fortune 500 companies and small businesses to unlock the power of relationships in an organization to drive results, improve customer experiences and create a lasting legacy. In this session, Charles teaches people that the “I” in “team” doesn’t exist when it comes to finding success. True success occurs when we prioritize people and not take on life alone. These are principles that can be applied with both personal and business relationships.

  • How To Become Relentless

    Within this topic, Charles shares what it means to become relentless enough to deal with the stress that fear equips. He shares the science and impact behind stress in our lives and how it can be taken captive so it doesn’t destroy us and get us off the right path in life and in our careers.

  • Adversity Makes You Stronger

    Charles realized that the adversity he was facing would be the very thing to propel him into his greatest purpose yet: to use his story to impact and encourage people all over the world who felt like he did. Charles shows you how to change your perspective on adversity and use it to make you stronger. As well as the most important habits that amplify your confidence, happiness, and peak performance
