He was born with Poland's Syndrome, a rare disease that left
his right hand malformed and his muscle development non-existent.
But Johannes Atlas was also born to parents who, as he puts it,
"refused to baby him." Their support led him to overcome his
physical challenges on a variety of sporting fields and his
emotional challenges by believing -- as his mom and dad told him
often -- he was "enough." Coming under the tutelage of business
mentors as a young adult and inspired by his faith, Atlas has
launched a growing speaking career and is encouraging others to
overcome their own crucibles en route to a life of significance
through his Pressing Toward the Mark events.
You are more than your failures and setbacks. We share stories of leaders who have moved beyond life’s most difficult moments to lead lives of significance, and insights on how you can do the same. Hosted by Warwick Fairfax.
