Scott Burrows Biography

Scott Burrows' story is the hero's journey. By the age of 19, he was playing college football at Florida State University as a walk-on wide receiver for legendary coach Bobby Bowden and was a top-ranked kick-boxing Black Belt champion whose last fight was broadcast by ESPN. During that time, Burrows' life changed dramatically on November 3, 1984, when he survived a horrendous automobile accident as a passenger in a friend's car and broke cervical 6 and 7 vertebrae in his neck, which left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic. Told he would be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Burrows realized his split-second decision not to wear a seat belt altered his course forever.

Despite his grim diagnosis, Burrows refused to be sidelined. After graduating from college, Burrows' first career was as a Financial Advisor in the Insurance and Financial Industry for Northwestern Mutual. He specialized in life and disability insurance planning as well as retirement, estate, and wealth planning. In his 5th year, he hit a huge goal and qualified for the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), the Premiere Association of Financial Professionals, which is a 100% commission-driven sales production award that fewer than 8% of his peers qualify for annually from more than 500 companies in 70 countries.

At the pinnacle of that career, Burrows experienced yet another setback, a second automobile accident. Although he was buckled in this time, new injuries forced him to RE-evaluate, RE-invent, and once again RE-ignite his life by practicing and executing what he preaches. During his recovery, Burrows reminisced about the overcoming adversity speakers he heard at sales and leadership conferences. Their life-changing stories inspire you to chase your dreams regardless of obstacles or barriers. That's when Burrows decided he would make the tough decision to leave an industry he had so much passion for to pursue a speaking career that has taken him around the world.

Burrows is also the author of "Vision Mindset Grit!" In the Foreword, Burrows' father defined those three empowering words: Vision refers to your goals and aspirations, the endpoint you are seeking. Mindset is the continual mental preparation and adjustment needed to meet oncoming challenges. Grit is the day-to-day determination to persevere when you are too tired, too sore, or too beleaguered to continue on.

Burrows has delivered his story in 45 states and in such countries as Australia, Spain, India, Thailand, Bermuda, Costa Rica, Mexico, the Czech Republic, and Canada, as well as to our soldiers at the Minot Air Force Base.

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.

Scott will inspire your attendees to rethink their own possibilities and he will challenge them to set aggressive mind-stretching goals which will impact the bottom line of your business beneficially.

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.
