About Me


My name is Chris Ellis and I’m a self-empowerment coach. I’m also the creator of the Rapid Success Method and founder of Ellis Life Mastery. My mission is to help struggling adults get unstuck and develop the unshakable motivation needed to attack goals daily.

However, once upon a time my own life was in shambles.

Picture this. I’m 25 years old, college drop-out, living in a YMCA “apartment”, roughly the size of a walk-in closet. I’m sitting on a broken mattress seriously contemplating suicide. The room is dirty and infested with bedbugs. So I’ve got a bottle of pills in one hand and casually slapping bugs with the other.

Why am I killing myself today? Well, I ruined a relationship with a woman I thought I was gonna marry. She was the only good thing going in the shit-sandwich that was my life. And now… she’s gone. 

I’m sitting alone on a hot summer day with a handful of pills and nothing but free time to pick apart my life. I take inventory.

  • I’m the product of 2 divorces
  • I ran away from home when I was 16
  • I was emotionally, physically and even sexually abused
  • I’ve been homeless on and off for over a dozen years. 

I’ve lived what has felt like a thousand terrible lifetimes and I just want to end this. 

And while I was feeling sorry for myself another voice said, “Are you really as powerless as you feel?” 

No… I wasn’t

I was an accomplished artist and had graduated as a double major from the School of Creative and Performing Arts. I had been an honor-roll student my whole life. Hell, I lived in a homeless shelter across the street from my college and still managed a 4.0 my first semester. 

My circumstances have never truly robbed me of my capabilities. I’ve always been the boss of my life, through good and bad.

I realized that if I put as much energy into myself as I did with my art and my education, the sky would be the limit. So the next morning I got to work on myself.

For the next five years I’d tried EVERYTHING. 

  • I read 300-page self help books 
  • Watched close to a hundred hours of YouTube videos 
  • Tried tedious 30-day challenges to change my habits
  • Did meditation and daily affirmations.

Eventually, I invented a 4-point system to radically change my life.

I decided to use that system to accomplish all the things I should’ve done in my twenties. More importantly, I decided to fix all the things I’d F***** up in my twenties.

Within three years I…

  • Paid off thousands of dollars of debt
  • Finally got my license and bought a car.
  • Fixed my credit score
  • I got married and started a family
  • Started a successful life coaching business.
  • Authored my first book.
  • And tripled my yearly income.

I went from being a college dropout to being paid to speak at colleges about accelerated learning.

I accomplished more in 3 years than I had ever in the last decade. That’s when I decided to share my discovery with the world. 

So who am I?

I’m the person that did the tedious legwork figuring out how to rapidly transform his life, so you don’t have to. So take a shortcut on the road to excellence, with my signature Rapid Success Method.
