“Everything you’ve done up until now will help you get to where you need to go.” — Brian Buffini

We all have dreams—things we want to achieve or accomplish that will make our lives and the lives of our families better. Many of us, though, lose sight of our dreams for a variety of reasons. In this episode, recorded at Buffini & Company’s MasterMind Summit 2017, Brian Buffini shares the power of dreams. He illustrates his case using the example of legendary American actor, Jimmy Stewart, who dreamed of building airplanes, and eventually, was able to fly in combat during World War II. You’ll learn the five benefits of having a dream and the most common reasons people abandon their dreams. Most importantly, by the end of the episode, you’ll be inspired to reclaim your dreams and devise a way to make them a reality.

“The deeper you dig, the larger the diamond.” — Brian Buffini

The foundation of the personal development field rests upon the work of several people.

In this episode, recorded at Buffini & Company’s MasterMind Summit 2017, Brian Buffini outlines the most important pearls of wisdom from these three influential thinkers. Not only does he share more about their lives, he also explains the meaning behind their timeless wisdom. You’ll learn more about the role our thoughts play in what we become, why failure shouldn’t be feared and why success is often a matter of imagination.

You’ll also learn more about the twelve disciplines Dorothea Brande outlines to become successful.

“In the moment, you’ve got to keep breathing.” — Dr. David Levy

Many people feel stressed and burned out from time to time. Our fast-paced, tech-driven culture makes it difficult to relax and unwind at the end of the day. And, although the holiday season is filled with joy and fun, it’s also one of the most stressful times of the year. Between tying up loose ends before the end of the year at work, planning holiday parties and traveling to visit family and friends, it can leave people feeling frazzled and on-edge. In this Takeover Tuesday episode, Dermot Buffini talks to Dr. David Levy, neurosurgeon and bestselling author of “Gray Matter: A Neurosurgeon Discovers the Power of Prayer…One Patient at a Time.” Dr. Levy discusses why he became a cerebrovascular surgeon and explains the effects of stress on the brain. You’ll learn why stress turns adults into fiery two-year-olds, the impact our phones and technology have on our brains and stress levels, and why breathing is the ultimate stress buster. Dr. Levy shares his tips for eliminating stress and finding calm in our daily lives and also offers great advice for enhancing relationships with our loved ones that we all can use during this festive season. Turn off your smartphone’s notifications, take a few deep breaths and let Dr. Levy help you tackle stress more effectively.
