Exploring the mindsets, motivation and methodologies behind true success.

Rank #1: The Strangest Secret – by Earl Nightingale #061

Podcast cover
Read more

“We become what we think about.” — Earl Nightingale

In the world today, we’re drowning in information, but starving for wisdom. While the tools we use in our daily lives continue to change with advances in technology, the principles of success remain the same. In this episode, Brian introduces us to “The Strangest Secret” by Earl Nightingale, which was the first spoken word recording to sell more than a million copies. Earl explains how your thoughts determine your success, particularly if paired with a goal. You’ll learn why only 5 percent of people succeed, ways to overcome the plateau of security and how to put what you’ve learned into action in 30 days. By the end of the episode, you’ll be ready to harness your thoughts and change them for good.

Inspirational quotes from today’s interview:

“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” — Earl Nightingale

“The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice; it is conformity.” — Rollo May

“The only person who succeeds is the person who’s progressively realizing a worthy ideal.” — Earl Nightingale

“A success is anyone who is doing deliberately a predetermined job because that’s what he decided to do deliberately.” — Earl Nightingale

“Instead of competing, all we have to do is create.” — Earl Nightingale

“Selling is the highest paid profession if we’re good at it and know where we’re going.” — Earl Nightingale

“A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.” — Marcus Aurelius

“Everything comes if a man will only wait. I brought myself by long meditation to the conviction that a human being with a settled purpose must accomplish it and that nothing can resist a will that stay even existent for its fulfillment.” — Benjamin Disraeli

“A man is what he thinks about all day long.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.” — William James

“If you only care enough for a result, you will almost certainly attain it. If you wish to be rich, you will be rich. If you wish to be learned, you will be learned. If you wish to be good, you’ll be good. Only you must really wish these things and wish them exclusively and not wish at the same time a hundred other incompatible things just as strongly.” —William James

“If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” — Mark 9:23

“This is one of the greatest laws in the universe. Fervently do I wish I had discovered it as a very young man. It dawned upon me much later in life and I found it to be the greatest, if not my greatest discovery outside of my relationship to God. Simply stated if you think in negative terms, you’ll get negative results. If you think in positive terms, you achieve positive results…This is the basis of the prosperity of success. In three words: Believe and Succeed.” — Norman Vincent Peale

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get out and look for the circumstances they want and, if they can’t find them, make them.” — George Bernard Shaw

“Everyone is the sum total of his own thoughts.” — Earl Nightingale

“What you think today and tomorrow will mold your life and determine your future.” — Earl Nightingale

Sermon on the Mount: “Ask, and it shall be given you. Seek, and you shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened onto you.”

“Success isn’t the result of making money; making money is the result of success. Success is in direct proportion to our service.” — Earl Nightingale

Rank #3: This Too Shall Pass – an Interview with Dr. Lawrence Yun #201

Podcast cover
Read more

“It’s going to pass. This short-term virus negative impact will pass.” – Dr. Yun

In these uncertain times, it’s vital to arm yourself with facts so you can prepare for and deal with any challenges. In this special bonus episode, Brian interviews NAR Chief Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun and gets his take on how the economy and the housing market will be affected by the Coronavirus. Replacing fear with facts, this content will help you navigate this difficult time for our country, our world and specifically our marketplace.

YOU WILL LEARN:• How fluctuations in the economy will impact the real estate market. • If the Spring selling season will be pushed back into Summer. • Why the economy and the real estate industry will bounce back.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“We have faced many, many different crises in the past as a country.” – Brian Buffini

“Housing is on very solid ground, yet we are running into this economic quarantine ... that is shutting down the economy temporarily.” – Dr. Yun

“The banking industry is in a completely different spot than it was going into the last recession.” – Brian Buffini

“No matter what, this is going to be a shorter-term situation than what we faced with the last recession.” – Brian Buffini

“If it is of short duration, one can anticipate quite a strong real estate rebound after say one or two months of somewhat of a lacklustre activity.” – Dr. Yun

“We had a housing shortage going into this virus situation. And if the duration of this virus negative impact is short … we’ll run into the housing shortage right away again.” – Dr. Yun

“If you don’t sell, you haven’t lost anything.” – Brian Buffini

“In this time of crisis, the one place that people had to go to for their safe haven was their home. Their homes became their shelter, their comfort, their lifeboat.” – Brian Buffini

“If it (the economic shutdown) is of short duration, it will be just a delayed Spring buying season. It could be in August or September when we see that normal Spring buying season occur.” – Dr. Yun

“If there is a short duration Coronavirus impact, then we will see a fairly robust late Summer going into Fall home sales market.” – Dr. Yun

“It’s almost impossible to project at this stage…Data is a rear-view mirror.” – Brian Buffini

“It seems to me that, as we get ready, there will be a pent-up demand.” – Brian Buffini

“It seems like the real estate business as a huge sector of the economy is actually poised to still perform pretty well.” – Brian Buffini

“Housing is on very solid ground if we were to go into a recession.” – Dr. Yun

“Real estate is always going to be this safe haven where people are putting their investment.” – Brian Buffini

“In many ways, we’re well set up for this crisis on a major level.” – Brian Buffini

“The fact that we are in a very accommodating monetary policy means mortgage rates will be at historic lows. The most recent data shows about 3.3 percent. It could even go down to 3 percent.” – Dr. Yun

“Half of Americans don’t have any exposure to the stock market, so they’re just looking at the low mortgage rates.” – Dr. Yun

“Once the all-clear signal is addressed to say the virus situation is over, I think we’re going to see a great robust rebound in people searching for homes.” – Dr. Yun

“People need to be reminded to be resourceful.” – Dr. Yun

“Stay at home, but if you’re staying at home, how can you be resourceful?” – Dr. Yun

“I would like to see more home building activity come onto the market once we go past this crisis.” – Dr. Yun

“If one feels that their job is secure, and many jobs are…take advantage of the record-low mortgage rates” – Dr. Yun

“Maybe there are less buyers out in the market during the crisis, which means there’s less competition and better price negotiation potential.” – Dr. Yun

“Right now, home is the only safe place that you know you have.” – Brian Buffini

“There will be more people working at home…so we may actually begin to see more people wanting to search for different homes to fit their lifestyle a little better.” – Dr. Yun

“The housing market has a huge potential for growth.” – Dr. Yun

“Over the next five years, probably four of those five years will be an improving year.” – Dr. Yun

“People who are planning for the future long term in real estate, they will do well.” – Dr. Yun

“When you have a bit of a longer-term perspective, it seems to take you out of the short-term panic.” – Brian Buffini

“The sky is not falling. This is a difficult time. In many ways, this could be our finest hour.” – Brian Buffini

“It’s going to pass. This short-term virus negative impact will pass.” – Dr. Yun

“Even if it takes a little longer to contain it, there is such a solid fundamental for the real estate market, things will play out very well over the long haul.” – Dr. Yun

Rank #11: The Podcast Every Homeowner Needs to Hear - an Interview with Dr. Lawrence Yun #214

Podcast cover
Read more

“There’s nothing to suggest just because we are hit with this pause button that automatically things will come apart.” – Dr. Yun

In the current climate, there is a lot of misinformation and uncertainty in the marketplace. In this episode, Brian interviews NAR Chief Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun to get an update on the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus on the economy and housing. Topics discussed include why home prices are remaining steady, how agents are navigating the process and completing transactions, why real estate provides a hedge against inflation and why the house is still a valuable asset in high demand.

READ FULL EPISODE TRANSCRIPT

YOU WILL LEARN:

  • What the latest statistics and data reveal about home sales and consumer behaviors.
  • If there will be a Spring homebuying season.
  • Where the home market will finish the year.

MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:

NAR Flash Survey: Economic Pulse

March 2020 Existing Home Sales

Episode 201, This Too Shall Pass – an Interview with Dr. Lawrence Yun

The Complete Story of Civilization,” by Will Durant

How the Irish Saved Civilization,” by Thomas Cahill

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“I think the first couple of weeks, there was a degree of shock factor.” – Dr. Yun

“What I am seeing in recent weeks, the past couple of weeks, is that buyers are slowly coming back to the market. They're a little disappointed on the lack of inventory, but 70 percent of the workforce with secure employment they're looking at historically low mortgage rates and they're just looking for the right home that meets their needs.” – Dr. Yun

“I think people would be surprised to see how much activity is actually going on in the market in real world terms.” – Brian Buffini

“Trying to purchase a home and get the deal done is far safer than visiting grocery stores.” – Dr. Yun

“When we survey potential buyers and potential sellers, they are indicating that they are not out of the market, but simply delaying the entry point. They just want an all-clear signal from the Governor before reentering the market.” – Dr. Yun

“There’s no panic among home sellers.” – Dr. Yun

“Buyers are acting normal; sellers are acting normal.” – Dr. Yun

“There is still a great desire for people to buy, for people to sell and for people to own a home.” – Brian Buffini

“I anticipate, for the year as a whole in 2020, the sales activity will be down about 10 percent to 15 percent.” – Dr. Yun

“I think that home prices will not decline because of the inventory shortage that we have. There is no expectation by the buyers for any big discount.” – Dr. Yun

“Going into 2021, we have all this pent-up demand. I think the sales will increase about 15 percent and the price is rising 3 to 5 percent.” – Dr. Yun

“We have the political landscape, we have the media landscape and then we have some data.”  – Brian Buffini

“If we end up 2020 and we’ve lost 10 to 15 percent that would be remarkable and it would be fantastic and very acceptable for a bump in a year.”  – Brian Buffini

“For the current nationwide housing situation, we had a housing shortage before the pandemic and we have even acute shortage today because of not enough listings.” – Dr. Yun

“This is an adversity. You go through the adversity but come out at the end, the other side, to say ‘I have more knowledge, I have more relationships built up’ and that would be a very good starting point for the upturn that I anticipate will be happening later in the year.”  – Dr. Yun

“Positive attitude brings positive action.” – Dr. Yun

But when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind. We have to measure and track or we can’t improve.” — Lord Kelvin

“Share the Gospel at all times, but only use words if absolutely necessary.” — St. Francis of Assisi

Rank #19: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life #112

Podcast cover
Read more

“Work harder on yourself than you do on your job; you’ll go from making a living to making a fortune.” — Jim Rohn

Earl Nightingale famously said, “We become what we think about.” Although we may dream of success and set goals to help us achieve it, our thoughts can create roadblocks along the way. How? Each time we think, “I can’t be successful; I was born poor” or “I’ve failed at this business/idea, I’m giving up” we give into our negative thoughts. Luckily, we can change our thoughts by developing positive personal and business philosophies to lean into each and every day. In this episode, Brian Buffini delves into the concept of personal and business philosophies and shares how they influence our lives. You’ll learn the two most common reasons we’re reluctant to change, how to handle those ‘goofy’ thoughts that impede our progress, and the six questions that will help you define your personal and business philosophies. He also outlines the three essential components to help you develop and maintain successful philosophies.

It’s not too late to take control of your financial future and become a millionaire, and by the end of this episode, you’ll be inspired to do just that.

Podcast cover
Read more

“Empathy is part of our human nature. It's the capacity to feel what other people are feeling. It's what separates animals from human beings. It's part of our nature; but it also has to be nurtured.” – Joe Ehrmann

If we don't address the wounds that we experience in life, we will go on to similarly wound others. In this episode, the third in a special series of six, Brian and Joe Ehrmann discuss why developing empathy for ourselves and others is a crucial step in helping us to understand and move forward from the hurts of the past. Topics discussed include why we often build rigid defense mechanisms and destructive life patterns to cover our wounds, how we can transform these patterns and become wounded healers and what role faith takes in this journey.

READ FULL EPISODE TRANSCRIPT

“We take the people we love, the people we want to be invested in and that we care about, and we can't help but wound them because we haven't addressed our own woundedness.” – Joe Ehrmann

“You have to take that first step of entering those wounds with a sense of empathy.” – Joe Ehrmann

“One of the missing pieces in America is a lack of empathy. We do victim blaming, we have apathy and indifference. But we've got to learn how to develop positive empathy for people, their situations and, particularly, for ourselves.” – Joe Ehrmann

How To Love and Be Loved | Part 2: The 3 Wounds of Love #232

Podcast cover
Read more

“We've got to name these wounds. We've got to enter into them, touch them, heal them, verbalize and then release them so that we can be the people that we were created to be.” – Joe Ehrmann

Wounds from your past can have a devastating impact on the way you feel about yourself and others. In this episode, the second in a special series of six, Brian and Joe Ehrmann teach how to identify and heal those wounds that make it difficult for you to truly love and be loved. Topics discussed include how a deeply personal experience with his young son led Joe to reflect on his own relationship with his father; how an incident in Brian’s childhood inspired his motivation to succeed in life; and why healing is not about affixing blame, but about understanding what shaped you.

YOU WILL LEARN:

  • The three basic questions we all have about identity, intimacy and industry.

And you can learn to walk through life with a limp, but it's better to go back, take it out, then learn to walk properly and then maybe help others get this pebble out of their shoe.” – Brian Buffini

“We share our woundedness with others to offer that as a hope for healing.” – Joe Ehrmann

“A wound is some unresolved issue. And it's not the fact that we're wounded in life. It's a decision we make as adults to deal with them.” – Joe Ehrmann

“Don't allow one or two negative thoughts to detract away from the way that you communicate and interact with your family, with your loved ones, with your work and with the goals that you set forth on January 1.” – Apolo Ohno

“If you've been derailed, that's OK. But you have within your control to get back on the wagon, to reassess the situation and to go on the attack that's going to best suit what you're seeking. And unless you do that, and take control, you're just going to be a passenger in the speeding train versus being the conductor.” – Apolo Ohno

“I had the raw talent, but talent alone, unfortunately, is just not enough in the last 5 percent. It is merely just the starting line.” – Apolo Ohno

“I mean, the bottom line is what makes a champion, what makes an Olympian what makes a very successful person is a level of commitment where you're all-in.” – Brian Buffini

“Always continue to learn, and always stay hungry no matter what. We as human beings have the capacity to always grow. And we can change our neural chemistry through that system. We're understanding how that works now. So, the mindset, to me was always the single greatest tool.” – Apolo Ohno

“When opportunity comes, it's too late to prepare.” – John Wooden

“Hopefully I can help people unlock their own inner potential in a way that they become more confident, more resilient, better relationships with their family, and they're getting what they believe they both deserve and what they seek.” – Apolo Ohno

“My goal is to be better coming out of this than I was going into this. And that's what I'm challenging people to do.” –  Brian Buffini
