Every child deals with peer pressure. Let’s face it: Even for those prepared to deal with its ongoing instigation, the reinforcement of independence in youth is of high importance. Nick knows that children can do it. Let’s encourage them to think for themselves.
When we, together, block the external taunts and gestures of “I can’t” and self-doubt, a powerful stream of positive energy is released.
Nick is always amazed by the audacity of children’s imagination when it’s set free, and you will be amazed too. There is a lot to learn from them, but only if they know about this unseen power and the importance it holds in their lives. Nick is here to release it, and his story is evidence of its unlimited potential.
The process of releasing this security in each child is one that builds confidence, dexterity against challenges, and is even followed by good study habits.
Nick Scott was an average 16-year-old who played on his high school football team and loved athletics. His life was that of any teenager who attended classes and hung out with friends, but that all changed in an instant. An automobile accident transformed his ordinary existence into an extraordinary one. Miraculously, Nick survived death once he was freed from the twisted metal of his automobile. He suddenly found himself paralyzed from the waist down and confined to a wheelchair. Years of depression and self-abuse marked the beginning of Nick’s sometimes painful but ultimately uplifting story, where he rediscovered his life by learning to view things through a new lens.
This is the tale of one man’s determination to hold tightly to his dreams, his relentless drive to succeed, and his passion for motivating people, including himself, to perform at their optimal level. Audience members will discover how to apply the principles that rejuvenated Nick’s life to enrich their own lives and assist those under their care. Nick keeps audience members on the edge of their seats as he engages with every person and instills the power to achieve their dreams. His trials and errors have earned him the top ranking in fitness coaching and motivational speaking. What sets Nick’s presentation apart from others? Nick’s knowledge surpasses that of anyone else; there are no excuses, no room for giving up or quitting.
Nick Scott brings his motivational talent, charismatic style, and his incredible story to speaking engagements worldwide. At 16 years old, Nick was involved in a tragic automobile accident that took away his mobility and almost consumed his spirit. The young man endured years of depression and was on the brink of suicide. The day Nick Scott decided to take action to improve his life was the day the world gained a dynamic, passionate motivating voice.
Nick emphasizes to students that education is the most important tool for achieving their dreams and securing their future.
“Education is like raindrops, precious and capable of yielding immediate results. Only the blades of grass that catch the rain will grow and prosper. Blades of grass untouched by life wither and die.”
It’s important for students to understand the nature of opposition. Many students perceive it as a negative force when, in fact, it isn’t.
This is when Nick Scott encourages children to embrace failure. It’s the only way to ultimately achieve a lifetime of success. If he hadn’t faced the challenges bound by a triumphant wheelchair success story, none of the millions touched by his charm and narrative would have had much to gain.
Students will also learn about efficient decision-making. During his world-renowned presentation, Nick guides children through exercises that involve making decisions that place them in unfamiliar situations. He then leads them through decision-making exercises in circumstances they prefer.
Understanding the dynamics of making good decisions is important and provides an engaging experience for students, who also have a lot of fun during this part of the presentation.
Students develop pride in their accomplishments as they build more self-esteem through achieving meaningful goals. Completing targeted exercises, affirmations of self-value, and more challenging tasks progressively gives students a sense of worth and the right methods to nurture it.
Students define respect as it pertains to their school environment and demonstrate self-respect through interactions with peers and administration. Diplomacy is exhibited through interactive exercises in teamwork and decision-making in this area.
Students demonstrate methods to relieve stress and focus on educational goals. Demonstrations of their courage come in setting future goals. They will begin working to achieve these goals promptly and measure progress through a series of benchmark exercises.
Nick Scott speaks to students at a level they understand and appreciate. Interacting with students comes easily to Nick because they “get” him.
Students rarely comprehend the impact they have on personal friendships; they underestimate the value they bring to society and how significant their visions are for the future. This is what we aim to resolve.
Visualization exercises in this program help students understand their potential. Teaching purpose and vision to young students puts reality into focus. But working to build this knowledge, strength, and diplomacy won’t be overwhelming with Nick speaking. He knows the value of their contributions to the next generation. Putting young adults on the right path, armed with the tools they need to move forward, is a trait inherent in Scott.
Nick lets students know that their education is the most important tool they have to help achieve their dreams and goals. The youngest students need to learn methods of overcoming adversity and realize life isn’t always easy.
Challenges are gifted opportunities to learn. Problems are a common thread. Adversity is simply their preparation for greatness. Obstacles only stand to block the way to opportunity.
Nick guides students in creating specific action plans where fulfillment becomes not simply a goal, but the experience of life’s journey. This focus on results produces both achievement and fulfillment in all ages.
Nick Scott made a life-changing decision at the age of 16. It took years for Nick to make his next life-changing decision. Now, he changes lives every day through speaking and interacting with young people who must understand the importance of decisions they make.
Scott teaches the art of decision-making in whole. Nothing is left out. Young people believe decisions have no impact, so they neglect the opportunity to make the right ones. This program will turn that around. Nick speaks to students at a level they appreciate, easily establishing friendship and rapport.
