Why are we here - Cornell Thomas

Cornell Thomas was 7 days away from playing professional basketball when he suffered a career ending injury. Being raised with adversity throughout his life Cornell used the lessons from his childhood to push him past the pain and into his purpose. Cornell was raised by his mother Tina Thomas, along with his 4 siblings Alicia, Romont, Craig, and Ronald. Cornell discovered writing five years ago when he first started writing his own inspirational quotes to help combat all the negativity he was seeing online. The quotes eventually became blogs, and the blogs became books. His first title is The Power Of Positivity-Controlling where the ball bounce, followed by The Power Of Me-Army of 1, and his latest book is called Extra-Ordinary the distance between good and great. Cornell travels all over the world sharing his story, and his third book was endorsed by Tony Robbins.
