Winning Against All Odds, by Kevin Parker
Kevin Parker was given a second chance at life after a devastating drug overdose that led him to a three-week coma. He awoke to a dismal reality: he was in the hospital, hooked up to machines that were keeping him alive. He was completely immobile and was unable to breathe on his own. He couldn’t speak or even write to communicate.
The doctors didn’t give Kevin much hope for recovery. They warned his family that he might not make it out of the hospital alive. What the doctors didn’t know is that Kevin is a fighter. This deepest, darkest hour of his life only served to make him stronger physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. For four excruciating months, he waged a battle for his life. In the process, he lost his left leg and sustained irreparable nerve damage throughout his body. During this trip to hell and back, he decided that he would break free from the chains of addiction and design a life full of purpose. He committed to helping others create a life that they truly love to live. He embarked on a spiritual journey full of self-development, education, and growth to become one of the world’s leaders in addiction recovery.
Kevin has studied under John Maxwell, Tony Robbins, and Dr. Cali Estes, and is now an expert speaker, coach, and trainer. He uses his life experience and never-give-up attitude to inspire and motivate his clients to win against all odds. He shares his knowledge with audiences around the world to help them unlock their true warrior within. In Winning Against All Odds, he will give you the tools to overcome any obstacle you might encounter. When you turn your biggest weakness into your greatest strength, you will find that you are truly unstoppable.
Kevin is a certified coach in many modalities and has trained with the top leaders in self-development to further expand his knowledge on the subject. He uses all his training and experience to relate and serve the clients he works with as an addiction coach. He speaks to kids in schools and deters them from ever using drugs in the first place. He volunteers in the hospital and helps amputees and recent overdose patients cope and assimilate back into society. Kevin Parker’s life revolves around helping people create a life they love to live while being clean and sober and living with true purpose.
