My mission is to POSITIVELY EMPOWER 1 million YOUTH to be the best they can be.

Richard A. Cross is a professor, an empowerment speaker, life and empowerment 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. However, he soon proved the critics wrong; growing up to become an athlete, a police officer, and a restorative justice facilitator in is early adult life. Now he shares his life lessons to teach young people how to overcome adversity in order to achieve what they once deemed impossible.
