Hello, my name is Scott Fishman. Today, I help people achieve goals beyond their wildest dreams because I love serving others in pursuit of making the world a more motivated, inspired, and empowered place to live. For the last fourteen years, I have worked with high-level amateur and professional athletes, heavyweight business owners, coaches, trainers, doctors, and many other types of ambitious people committed to serious results. My clients are on six continents and I have a very gratifying career. Yet it hasn’t always been like this.
At ten years old, I dreamed of being like Michael Jordan. In other words, like many other kids growing up in the ’80s and ’90s, I wanted to “be like Mike.” This declaration was, to say the least, quite bold, especially being a white guy with limited natural jumping or running abilities. I simply lacked the natural athleticism of a great basketball player.
Instinctually, I did what many underdogs do. I started praying every night. The best prayer I could come up with was “God, please do as much as you possibly can to maximize my chances of playing basketball at the University of North Carolina.” I was smart enough to know that God wouldn’t let me jump forty inches or run a forty-yard dash in 4.0 seconds, but I was dreamy enough to think maybe God had some pull with the Basketball Gods. I dreamed big, but even with my head in the clouds I instinctively knew that I had better keep my feet on the ground.
