Inspirational Speaker & Resilience Coach
FROM HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT TO PHD
I started drinking when I was 12 and became a high school dropout by the time I was 15. In my twenties, I was waking up without knowing where I was or how I got there. My life didn't have meaning or purpose.
After thirty years of alcohol abuse, I decided to check into rehab and made an action plan for my life. It's been a difficult journey, but I'm almost 20 years sober now.
I was a high school dropout, addicted to alcohol, and lacked hope. Now, I have a PhD, teach at the university level, and successfully run two businesses. I know adversity. I know struggle. And I know success.
Now I want to help you unleash the power to transform your life.
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THE TRAJECTORY OF YOUR LIFE
I believe each person has the ability to transform their life. Regardless of your past, you can make your future successful. Whether you’re struggling with addiction, broken relationships, or financial issues, you can enhance your life.
Dr. Scott Massey’s ability to talk with others about his past and how he got through it is amazing. Two members of my family struggle with alcoholism, and it’s difficult to watch, so his story resonated with me. He has and will continue to help others with their personal struggles.
I have a lot of respect for Scott as a person. I’m twenty-two and living the young, “fun” stage of life, but his talk helped me realize the decisions I need to make now. I enjoyed his presentation; he spoke fearlessly.
Scott is incredibly inspiring! He took control of his life even when he didn’t have others supporting him. I enjoyed hearing his story. He did a great job making it relatable to everyone and challenged us to reflect on our own lives.
Listening to Scott gave me hope for my future. He posed challenging questions that truly got me thinking. I think others can benefit from reflecting on his story and his questions, too.
I felt the most impact when Dr. Massey talked about what makes him a better person. I personally deal with anxiety and think about things I can’t do instead of focusing on what I can do. After hearing Dr. Massey share his motivations, though, I’m inspired to set my mind on the things I can do!
Scott has a powerful story and I hope he continues to share it. He realized he wasn’t the person he wanted to be, so he made decisions that turned his life around. He created a plan of action and changed his life—we can do the same.
