Kevin Atlas is missing a limb, but he didn’t let that stop him from playing NCAA Division I basketball. In Atlas’ motivational book, Get in the Game: Nothing Missing: You Have Everything Needed to Succeed, he encourages readers to go for their goals and be their best selves, while telling the story of his life. He writes as if he is cheering on his readers to reach for their dreams.
I like how Atlas emphasizes the importance of radical resilience. Often times, we can pick ourselves up from failure and turn terrible situations around – if we only do not give up. Throughout the book, Atlas shares important life lessons, showing us that negative experiences can build character. He encourages readers to find their purpose and passion in life. Atlas reminds us that life is a beautiful journey.
