Overall, Carlton is most interested in helping others reach their goals of becoming healthier and ultimately (and most importantly), happier.
“If you’re not truly happy on the inside, then being “healthy” is just a relative term to describe an incomplete condition. Being healthy should also mean being happy with yourself. Because what good does it do anyone to be healthy and miserable. Life is too short. Strive to be happy and healthiness will follow.” – Carlton
•A Lil’ bout me, personally…
…overall, i’m just a simple person. A humble child of the universe, living every day for my hopes & dreams. And each day, i’m just tryin’ to make as many, as i possibly can, come true…and all the while, live and exist honestly. I suppose i should tell you a few more things ’bout myself, so that maybe you’ll begin to slightly understand where i’m comin’ from as another passenger in the world. I was born in Louisiana and raised in the smaller town of Tyler, in North East Texas. I now reside in Austin, Texas, where i’ve been for well over 20 years. I’ve always wanted to make people healthier & happier, so ultimately this lead me to becoming a Personal Trainer, among my many other pursuits & passions. I now own my own company, the Blue Sky Strongbox, which formed in 2008. I have many plans for the future, none of which are limited to any one particular area, idea or concept. I’m also a musician and a songwriter, with music being my first love. I believe in happiness. I believe in passion. I believe in helping others and being kind. I also believe in people standing up for themselves and what they believe in. I believe in smiling, laughing, living and being honest. I believe in being thankful for what I was given rather than worrying much about things I wasn’t. At the end of the day, i’m just trying to find some kind of balance with it all, while also mindfully working to leave the world a better place than i how i found it, using my head and my heart as my guide.
