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

“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

Podcast cover

“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.

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.

Rank #19: Getting Caught Talking to Yourself #040

Podcast cover

“We’re finding the best in ourselves and making it true.” –Shad Helmstetter

Much of what we believe is programmed into us when we’re young – and then it shows up in the things we say to ourselves. Statements like “I’m always late,” or “I just can’t lose weight,” or “It’s my first year in the business; I can’t achieve success,” stem from these beliefs, which aren’t often the truth.

In this episode, Brian Buffini shares one of his favorite interviews from the past – with Shad Helmstetter, Ph.D., author of What to Say When You Talk to Yourself. Dr. Helmstetter reveals his research findings and offers tips to help us turn negative self-talk into positive affirmations.

You’ll learn about the five levels of self-talk, why the small decisions we make each day are determined by our automatic programming, and how not to absorb other people’s negative programming. By the end of this episode, you’ll have the tools you need to reprogram your self-talk.

Inspirational quotes from today’s interview:

“What we type into our keyboard will have an effect on our lives.” –Shad Helmstetter

“The difference between one who succeeds in life and one who doesn’t is the person who succeeds somehow gets control of his or her programming and the other person doesn’t.” –Shad Helmstetter

“Most of the choices we make today will be made by the programs that are on automatic playback.” –Shad Helmstetter

“The small choices are the most important ones you’ll ever make.” –Shad Helmstetter

“Anyone who gets the right new messages will build new highways.” –Shad Helmstetter

“People change their opinions by changing their program.” –Shad Helmstetter

“Keep in mind that everything everyone says is an opinion based on their programs.” –Shad Helmstetter

“We’re finding the best in ourselves and making it true.” –Shad Helmstetter

“In order to know where the self-talk ought to take me, I need to have goals.” –Shad Helmstetter

“Do something now.” –Shad Helmstetter

Podcast cover
Read more

“Do what is easy and your life will be hard; but do what is hard and your life will be easy.” — Les Brown

Les Brown’s inspiring story began when he and his brother were born in an abandoned building and adopted by a hardworking domestic worker named Mamie Brown. Dubbed “the dumb twin” by his classmates, Les only began to change his vision of himself when a teacher told him, “Someone’s opinion of you doesn’t have to become your reality.”

Since then, Les has been a radio personality, a politician and worked in the music business before becoming a heavily sought-after motivational speaker. In this episode, Brian Buffini interviews Les Brown and delves into his inspiring story.

You’ll learn why it’s essential to have a “hungry” mindset, what are “OQPs” and why you should surround yourself with them, why goal achievement is located far beyond your comfort zone and how a system will help you attain lasting success.

Les also offers a list of his past talks, located for free on YouTube, to watch and learn from. This episode is packed with information; you’ll want to listen to it several times to hear all of the inspirational nuggets Les Brown has to offer.

Inspirational quotes from today’s interview:

“Judge a man or woman not by what they have accomplished but by what they had to overcome for their accomplishment.” — Booker T. Washington

“You’re never too old to learn and you’re never too young to teach.” — Les Brown

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I’m here because of two women: one gave me life, the other gave me love.” — Les Brown

“There are moments in life that can make you or break you.” — Les Brown

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” — Maya Angelou

“Living from a place of integrity is what it takes to become an entrepreneur.” — Les Brown

“You gotta be hongry.” — Les Brown

“The people who are ‘hungry’ will do the things others won’t do so they can have tomorrow the things that others won’t have.” — Les Brown

“Being average is not an option; you have to be extraordinary in order to be considered average.” — Les Brown

“I was ‘hongry’ even when I was no longer hungry.” — Brian Buffini

“You can’t read the label if you’re locked in the box.” — Les Brown

“Part of being motivated is surrounding yourself with OQP—Only Quality People.” — Les Brown

“Do what is easy and your life will be hard; but do what is hard and your life will be easy.” — Les Brown

“Don’t focus on what you don’t have. Focus on what you do have and strengthen that, develop strategic relationships and find a way.” — Mike Williams

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” — Zig Ziglar

“If the end comes for you, let it find you conquering a new mountain not sliding down an old one.” — Jim Rohn

“You don’t get in life what you want. You get in life what you are.” — Earl Nightingale

“In order to do something you’ve never done, you’ve got to become someone you’ve never been.” — Les Brown

“Today you either expand or you’re expendable.” — Les Brown

“Ask for help, not because you’re weak but because you want to remain strong.” — Les Brown

“Once you stop fighting for what you want, what you don’t want will automatically take over.” — Les Brown

“Do what you’re called to do.” — Les Brown

“We were not meant to work for a living, but to live our making and our making will make our living.” — Les Brown

“Life is about experimenting and finding out ‘what is your sweet spot?’” — Les Brown

“If you can control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his action. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself. If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one.” —Carter Godwin Woodson

“In life you will always be faced with a series of God-ordained opportunities, brilliantly disguised as problems and challenges.” — Charles Udall
