Today on the podcast we hear from Scott Burrows who has an unforgettable, life-changing story that proves that Limits Can Be Exceeded, Barriers Broken and that No Circumstances Can Ever Destroy the Power of the Human Spirit.

By the age of 19, Scott was playing football at Florida State University and was a Top-Ranked kick-boxing Black Belt champion, having his last fight broadcast by ESPN. That same year, however, his life changed dramatically.

He was involved in a horrendous automobile accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic. Despite his grim diagnosis, he refused to be sidelined.

Today, as an Author, Motivational Speaker, Wheelchair Athlete and Successful Business Entrepreneur, he travels the world inspiring organizations to Stand Up to Any Challenge. He also wrote a book, Vision-Mindset-Grit, which details his journey.

In this episode, Scott and Cindra discuss:

  • The life-changing advice he got from his dad in the hospital
  • The power of forgiveness
  • Why “letting is happen” is important
  • Why we all need impossible goals to pursue
  • How to improve our vision, mindset and grit

Grit has been described as the number #1 predictor of long-term success. We all need to develop our grit to be successful. To do so, you can consider what are you working towards long-term?

The key is to focus on the gains, and find an empowering meaning even in the difficulty.

James Robilotta is a author, professional speaker, personal coach, and entrepreneur that's trained in stand-up and improv comedy. He has been speaking professionally to willing and unwilling audiences for years and have found that quality humor — not your slapstick, dad-joke humor — is the secret to hosting powerful conversations and making a real impact.

He works with colleges, corporations, associations, and individuals with a focus on authentic leadership. He focuses on something other authors and speakers won’t touch: imperfection.

In 2015, he published his first book, Leading Imperfectly: The value of being authentic for leaders, professionals, and human beings.

Aug 5, 2021

Today we talk about when we can be too gritty. We discuss Simone Biles, the USA gymnast, who withdrew from the Olympic All-American competition. As Simone said, our “physical health is mental health.” To ensure we are not pushing too hard, we can listen to our mind and body, care for ourselves, and engage in good self-care.  

 

Power Phrase this Week: I listen to my body and mind in order to reach my potential.” 

Aug 1, 2021

Most people dream too small or lose the ability to dream as they age. They let limiting beliefs get in the way, or they listen to other people’s disbelief in their goals and dreams. A key factor to keep in mind when you are setting goals is that the power of setting goals is who you can become in the process. Make connecting with your goals a daily mindset practice. 

 

Power Phrase this Week:” “I dream big to help me reach my best and my potential.” 

Quote of the Week: “Believe in your dreams and anything is possible.” Usain Bolt 

Jul 22, 2021

On the podcast this week, we discuss how to thrive on “the big stage” in the moments that are important to us. It is natural to feel pressure in these moments. We feel pressure when the outcome is important to us and the outcome is uncertain. You can’t live a life without pressure. The key is to manage your reactions to it. Notice your thoughts and emotions. Focus on what you can control – which is only you and your response to the situation.  

Power Phrase this Week:” I focus on what I can control. I trust myself today.” 

Quote of the week: “Everything negative – pressure and challenges – is all an opportunity for me to rise.” Kobe Bryant 

Jul 17, 2021

Today we are talking about the power of our own self-talk and how to overcome our own inner critic. What you think about yourself, you become. You can train your mind to level up your belief in yourself. Dr. Kamphoff shares with a powerful strategy we can use to level up our thoughts called The Truth Meter.  

Power Phrase this Week:” I talk to myself powerfully and tell myself the truth.” 

Quote of the Week: “Work harder on yourself than you do your job.” Jim Rohn, American businessman and self-made millionaire 

Jul 10, 2021

Several years ago, Google undertook a massive two-year study on high-performing teams, calling it “Project Aristotle.” They sought to answer the question “What makes a high performing team?” After conducting over 200 interviews, they surprisingly found a top ingredient for high-performing teams was psychological safety—in fact, it was the most important ingredient in high-performing teams. Today on the podcast, we talk about how we can apply this idea to building a thriving culture at work, home, or any other place we lead.

 

Quote of the Week: “If you want to succeed, double your failure rate.” Tom Watson, CEO of IBM 

 

Power Phrase of the Week:” I see failure and mistakes as opportunities to learn and grow.”

Trusting yourself is an essential part of building your self-confidence. Your trust is a trait that can be trained, and should be trained. First, when training your trust, it is important to not wait for confidence – instead, act confidently. Second, we need to doubt our doubts! Most of what we say to ourselves when we doubt ourselves is a lie. The third strategy to train your trust is to be kind to yourself. Make sure your inner dialogue supports trusting yourself. 

 

Power Phrase this Week: “I train my trust. I act confidently and my belief follows.” 

Quote of the Week: “If you’re going to trust one person, let it be yourself.” Robert Tew
