“If you want to get your power back, become more hopeful.” — Brian Buffini

We could all use more hope from time to time, especially when we’re in pursuit of our dreams. However, we often lose hope along the journey when we experience a setback or things just don’t go as planned. In this episode, Brian Buffini explains the concept of hope and then, using the characters from the Roald Dahl classic, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, outlines the common habits and characteristics that tend to hijack our dreams. You’ll learn what hope is and why it’s important, how to break the bad habits of greed, entitlement, impatience, impulsiveness and more, and how to find your golden ticket.

“I’m 100% a fan of failure because at least if you’re failing, you’re trying.” — Scott Hamilton

In the age of participation trophies, competition is seen as a negative thing. Scott Hamilton, Olympic champion, broadcaster and best-selling author, strongly disagrees and feels that competition is essential to achieving lasting success. In this episode, Brian interviews Scott to discuss the importance of competition and Scott’s new book, “Finish First: Winning Changes Everything.” Scott explains why failure is essential to achieving success in life and business, how to break the pattern of losing and achieve your goals, and the key question to ask yourself that’ll lead you to your true purpose. He also offers motivation and encouragement to help you take that important first step after experiencing a setback or failure.

“The one thing about real estate is if you hold it long enough, you will win.” — Brian Buffini

Are you among the 66% of Americans with a mortgage? Your home is a major source of wealth that allows you to build equity over time. A goal for many homeowners is to pay off their mortgage before the end of the amortization period; however, they may not know how to do it. In this episode, Brian Buffini breaks down the mortgage math and offers seven common-sense tips for paying off a mortgage much sooner—up to 11 years sooner in some cases! Paying off your mortgage not only allows you to own your home sooner, it also helps you save money in interest. You’ll learn how to harness the concept of compound interest to work in your favor, the pros and cons of paying off your mortgage early, and why you should fully fund your retirement and pay off your investment property before paying off your mortgage. If you have a mortgage, you won’t want to miss this episode.

“Self-pity dissipates in direct proportion to how much you help others in need.” — Mitch Albom

Mitch Albom, author of six consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers, brings his inspirational wisdom to episode #123 of “The Brian Buffini Show” to discuss his new book, “The Next Person You Meet in Heaven,” which is the sequel to his international bestseller, “The Five People You Meet in Heaven.”

The novel is told from the perspective of Annie, the girl who was saved by Eddie (the protagonist of the first novel), as she explores her life 15 years later. Like the first novel, “The Next Person You Meet in Heaven,” builds upon the theme that you have an impact on everyone you meet.

In this episode, Brian and Mitch discuss why mistakes are a matter of perspective, why we tend to focus on the scar instead of the healing process, and how service to others can help you reach beyond self-pity. Mitch also discusses his work in Haiti, the impact his adopted daughter had during her brief life, and the Charity Book Launch on October 14 in Detroit.

“We embrace our scars more than our healing.” — Mitch Albom

“No one remembers the ‘day it got better.’ People mark the day they were afflicted with something, but they never mark the day things got better.” — Mitch Albom

“Once you realize the need that is in the world, you stop feeling sorry for yourself.” — Mitch Albom

“Self-pity dissipates in direct proportion to how much you help others in need.” — Mitch Albom

According to best-selling author, Mel Robbins, she’s been figuring out what her next move is her entire adult life.
