Today we have a really inspirational episode with Charlie “Rocket” Jabaley.

Charlie has struggled with food addiction and being overweight from a young age. He has had as many challenges in his life as he’s had successes — and has persevered through it all with his “delusional optimism” (as he likes to call it).

He has gone through too many transformations in his life too count and there are so many parts of his story that are going to shock you — from his extreme weight loss to the fact that he was 2 Chainz’s manager, and is now a Nike’s endorsed athlete. His story is going to inspire and show you that there’s a completely different way to look at everything.

So often we focus on problems and how to resolve them, but what I loved about talking to Charlie today is that he doesn’t even see the world that way. He’s had amazing strength and perspective on all endeavors in life and I can’t wait to share that with you all today.
