About Scott Burrows

Scott was a star athlete and fierce competitor. By the age of 19, he played college football at Florida State University and was a top-ranked kick-boxing champion whose last victorious fight was broadcast on ESPN. That same night while celebrating with friends, he made a split-second decision that led to a catastrophic accident, changing his life forever. Bypassing his usual safety precautions, Scott decided to forgo wearing his seatbelt as a passenger in a friend’s car as they drove just one mile down the road to scavenge firewood for their bonfire. His friend accidentally lost control of the wheel, ran off the road and crashed into a mound of sand that sent the car hurtling through the air before tumbling back to earth, end over end. Scott broke two vertebrae in his neck and suffered a life-threatening spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic.

With nothing but a dire prognosis on his ability to recover, Scott undertook the challenge of overcoming his mind and emotions in order to maintain a VISION and MINDSET so powerful, he was able to discipline his body with the daily GRIT needed to overcome his present circumstances and move into a future he was told by his doctor was not even possible!

What came innately to Scott at such a young age has now been revealed through neuroscience to be exactly what is needed to rewire the brain and body for significant change. Scott will teach your team members how to override their nervous system response and resistance to change, maintain a safety mindset of awareness and daily focus, and how to apply the daily grit needed to move into success.
