What if the measure of your success is only determined by how well you adapt to change, doubt, uncertainty and fear? What belief system must you possess to conquer those challenges? Only rare events force people to change, even more rare are those individuals who can inspire people to the core and move them to action.

Scott Burrows' riveting story of overcoming incredible physical, personal and professional challenges through sheer determination will power and goal setting is infectious. Scott played college football at Florida State University under legendary coach Bobby Bowden and was a top ranked kick boxing champion having his last fight broadcast by ESPN. Later that year, his life took a dramatic turn when he was involved in a serious accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic. Despite this grim prognosis, Scott refused to be sidelined. After graduating from college he became a top producer in the financial and insurance industry qualifying for Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), before forming his own company, Global Golf Group, a successful international firm specializing in Golf Course Development.

Vision, Mindset and Grit -- three powerful words that describe Scott Burrows will also inspire your people to achieve their absolute best. Scott's message is one of hope and success.

In January 2013, he released the book "Vision, Mindset and Grit - How to Stand Up When Life Paralyzes You."

Stand Up To Your Challenges

Our world is changing at the fastest rate in human history. Maintaining the status quo is fraught with danger. Others in your ultra-competitive industry could be passing you by. Creating break-through opportunities for your organization and achieving extraordinary results as a team and as leaders is all about how you respond to circumstances. Finding solutions to help your team rise above the competition means being willing to stretch beyond self-perceived limitations, persevere and stand up to challenges.

Key Themes

  • Vision: is one of the greatest tools we have in life. It’s free, it costs nothing and it can bring everything.

  • Mindset: is focusing on what you can control, such as your level of optimism, your attitude and the positives of any situation. Mindset is staying true to your goals and business plan and making adjustments along the way as circumstances change.

  • Grit: is your willingness to be resilient, to maintain your poise and execution across all time horizons—this day, this week, this quarter, this year knowing nothing worth achieving ever comes too easily. It’s your willingness to fail and your unwillingness to quit.

Vision, Mindset, Grit

Because we live in a world that revolves around change, stress and setbacks, learning how to conquer these challenges by having a positive attitude and strong belief system is essential for life balance, success and fulfillment. Given that most industries are trying to keep up with industry trends, new technologies and the changing dynamics of their industry, it’s important to continually educate ourselves on how we can support each other and maintain a positive outlook and work/life balance.

Throughout this presentation, Scott draws upon three words: vision, mindset and grit—three words when put into action are powerful enough to become part of your organizational strategy. These words will inspire and motivate your people to shape new beliefs, be more productive and let no circumstances take precedence over the power of the human spirit, personally and professionally!
