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

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.

Rank #19: Change Everything you Know about Marketing - with Scott Stratten #099

Podcast cover
Read more

“If you believe business is built on relationships, make building them your business.” — Scott Stratten

Named one of the “Top 5 Social Media Influencers of the World” by Forbes Magazine, best-selling author Scott Stratten began developing the concept of “unmarketing” as a band manager and promoter in Toronto. However, it wasn’t until the recession that he honed his message and became the leading expert on digital and social media marketing. In this episode, Brian interviews Scott and delves into how a chance viewing of a Les Brown speech inspired him to get into motivational speaking, his early career in human resources and what led him to turn traditional marketing and selling strategies on their head and cultivate the ‘un’: unmarketing, unbranding and unselling. You’ll learn several strategies for building a following on social media, the dos and don’ts of promoting in your relationships and how great service separates you from your competition, both big and small. By the end of the episode, you’ll have the tools to connect better on all levels with your clients.
