Inspiration That Takes Your Heart Beyond Weight Loss. Music Mogul Charlie Jabaley was over 300lbs and wanted to chase his childhood dream of becoming an athlete. Overcoming a brain tumor and leaving his company, this inspirational story will take your heart beyond the normal sports story. This is the story of Charlie Rocket.
On January 1st 2016 I wrote a contract to myself: I WILL BECOME TOP 1% of athletes in the world. On March 3, 2018 I BECAME AN IRONMAN!!!!
Everything is possible!!!! This is insane! When I told my friends and family when I was 90 lbs heavier that I was going to do an Ironman they didn’t really believe me! Then about 4 months ago I got a call from my mom. She said "CHARLIE...YOU ARE REALLY DOING THIS IRON-MAN AREN'T YOU!?!?"
THIS IS THE WAR I FIGHT EVERYDAY! My entire life the evil voices in my head always got the best of me. They took hold of my life. Sent me into depressions. Anxiety. Eating disorders. And wanted to lead me towards death. In my opinion…
Hey! This is a case study that anything is possible! I called this video: Everything Is Possible. I might be the furthest thing away from what you would ever expect a Nike Athlete to look like. I’m not fast, and about 30 lbs overweight, and a little goody!
2 weeks ago to this day I wrote an Instagram post that said: “Dear Nike, we don’t know each other but hopefully soon we will”.
Now I can say... “Dear Nike, it was so amazing to meet you! - Love, Charlie Rocket“
I’m leaving Portland and now it’s time to dive alllll the way in for my Ironman training!!! I have 3 weeks left until New Zealand Ironman!!!! Thank you so much Nike! Now I have the best gear, but most importantly I have to best team behind me! I will not let any of you down!
HUGE LIFE MOMENT ALERT!!!!!
Nike tweeted out my commercial about how I dreamed to become a Nike athlete!!!
An amazing man from Nike named Andy Miguel emailed me and said that my life story touched so many of the employees hearts on the Nike campus. I am so grateful for how amazing of a company Nike is and how they care about peoples lives and motivating people. When I was 8 years old I saved up my money and my father taught me to invest... the very first stock I bought was Nike! It was my dream to be an athlete!
Thank you Nike for helping my dream come true!
The Law of Attraction... I’m going to be honest with you guys.... I still to this day get scared to chase my dreams. I have a vision to be Nike’s first big athlete that is the common man... an underdog... a second chance story... it’s who we all are inside... I see it in my head.
Wow!!! I now "own" my first name on one of the biggest platforms in the world! I am so amazed by all the amazing people who are showing up to support me!
Thank you so much @fadiakader and @instagram for following my story and giving me the name @charlie !!!! I think this is one of the coolest things... to own my first name on one of the biggest platforms in the world! But honestly. I couldn’t have gotten my story to be noticed if it wasn’t for all of my followers!
I created this video with my good friends Yes Theory because when I was at rock bottom, there was nobody I felt like I connected with. I felt alone... and in a world of the internet, when the possibilities of connections are so abundant, it sent me into a deeper depression because I felt like I was by myself in a world where billions are connected together.
