Scott Burrows 2012 Demo
Scott Burrows is living proof your life can change in an instant. By the age of 19, he was playing college football at Florida State University as a wide receiver and a top-ranked kick-boxing champion, with his last fight broadcast by ESPN.
On November 3, 1984, Scott’s life took a dramatic and irreversible turn. He was involved in a serious automobile accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic.
Despite his grim diagnosis, Scott refused to be sidelined. He made the decision to take action, to focus on the positives of the experience as opposed to dwelling on the obvious and overwhelming negatives.
With the tremendous clarity provided by his singular focus, Scott Burrows resolved to thrive in his life by using three principles:
- Vision: You have the power to stretch beyond the self-perceived limitations that have always paralyzed you. Dreaming in Technicolor allows you to expand your resourcefulness and visualize the full measure of your goals.
- Mindset: Face up to what scares you the most. Promise yourself that this time, right now, you’ll be more adventurous, curious and vulnerable than ever.
- Grit: Relentless determination is the only way to overcome obstacles. Lock in on your goals and don’t give up on them until you have reached them.
Scott’s application of these innovative concepts boosted and enhanced his recovery, and he achieved results that astonished doctors, therapists, family and friends alike. After graduating from college, he qualified for the Million Dollar Round Table in the insurance and financial industry, a 100% commission-driven award achieved by fewer than 8% of agents worldwide, before forming a family-run company, Global Golf Group, a successful International Golf Course Development Company. He also developed into a wheelchair athlete and became a best-selling author with his book, Vision Mindset Grit: How to Stand Up When Life Paralyzes You.
Employing his paralysis as a visual metaphor, Scott Burrows encourages his audiences to stand up to their challenges—regardless of circumstances—using the dynamic principles of Vision, Mindset and Grit. His presentations are inspirational, focused and enthusiastically received.
