“Whatever you think, you’ll create.” — Deanna Scott

Positive thinking is a central tenet of personal development. In this episode—Takeover Tuesday—Dermot Buffini interviews Lennox and Deanna Scott. Lennox Scott is the Chairman and CEO of John L. Scott Real Estate, one of the largest privately owned companies in North America. His wife, Deanna, is the author of the upcoming book, “Speaking the Language of Miracles,” about her son’s battle with a rare form of leukemia.

Throughout the episode, Deanna shares her story and how having a positive mindset not only helped her beat the odds when she was in a devastating accident as a teen, but helped her guide her son through the process of beating cancer.

You’ll learn why it’s important to focus on the outcome of a situation instead of dwelling on the situation itself, how to incorportate a positive mindset and affirmations into corporate culture and why Lennox credits his leadership team with helping him lead his company to fulfill a higher purpose. Get ready to be inspired!

“Thinking is unleashing the power of your mind. Action is harnessing the power of habit.” — Brian Buffini

In the last two episodes, Brian Buffini has been sharing his emigrant story and outlining the seven traits that successful emigrants share. In this episode, the final one in the “How to Make it Big in America” series, Brian shares how to put these traits into your daily practice, relating the process to one of the most common spices in the world: salt. Just as salt is composed of two elements—sodium and chloride—success is composed of two elements as well—the power of the mind and the actions we take. Brian outlines tips to help you harness the powers of your mind and your habits to help you achieve lasting success. You’ll learn why thoughts are powerful and must be put into action, why it’s necessary to list what you need to do to achieve your goals, and how to go from action to mastery. You’ll never look at salt the same way again. Be sure to pick up your copy of “The Emigrant Edge,” click here to order your copy.

“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.

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

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

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

In three words: Believe and Succeed.” — Norman Vincent Peale
