Rarely do I come across a book that inspires me just as much as my kids. However, Whats Your Red Ball is that book. This book is like no other book you've ever seen. It is about how to overcome adversity and find your true passion. As an adult, we all need to do this too, so this book, while geared at kids, can certainly get you thinking as an adult. The author of this book, Kevin Carroll, went from an abandoned child with a love of sports to working for the Air Force, Philadelphia 76ers, and Nike. His story, which is how the book starts, makes you want to be all you can be. The book itself gives you the material to make your own “box of magic”. This box is all about your gifts, your talents, your aspirations, your interests, and your hopes. The rest of the book tells you how to figure out how to decorate and fill your box. There are questions you need to answer and excercises you need to do, but by the end, you will have figured out whats your red ball.
Your age does not matter for this book. At 31, I find inspiration in it. This book is perfect for anyone who has lost their path in life and for those who are just finding it now.
