Richard A. Cross is a professor, an empowerment speaker and coach, and the founder of Energize Your Thoughts. But he didn’t start out looking quite so successful. As a young man, he had very little, sleeping on old clothes instead of a mattress, and he was often told he wouldn’t amount to anything. He soon proved the critics wrong, however, growing up to become an athlete, a police officer, and a restorative justice facilitator before transitioning into teaching young people how to overcome adversity in order to achieve what they once deemed impossible.
