"I thought my purpose in life was to play professional basketball. In 2003 I received a contract to play professional basketball in Portugal. A dream I had since I discovered the sport at 16 finally came to fruition. Two weeks before I was supposed to leave I suffered a career ending injury. Little did I know that injury helped me find my true purpose in life, which is helping and motivating others. In 2010, I decided I wanted to start a new movement. I was sickened by all of the negativity I was seeing online. I decided to start writing my own motivational quotes for my personal Facebook page. The quotes eventually led me to writing a blog, and the blog led to my first book “The Power Of Positivity-Controlling Where The Ball Bounces.” In 2011, I realized what my true purpose is. That purpose is to inspire and motivate others. I’ve been fortunate enough to speak all over the United States sharing my story with people from all walks of life. Daring others to say What Now instead of Why Me in the face of adversity.
Cornell's two books "The Power of Positivity" and "The Power of Me" will be on sale for $10 and $15 respectively or both for $20. Be sure to join the Facebook event and register below!
