“If you’ve been derailed, that’s OK. But you have within your control to get back on the wagon, to reassess the situation and to go on the attack that’s going to best suit what you’re seeking. And unless you do that, and take control, you’re just going to be a passenger in the speeding train versus being the conductor.” – Apolo Ohno


“I had the raw talent, but talent alone, unfortunately, is just not enough in the last 5 percent. It is merely just the starting line.” – Apolo Ohno


“There’s a competitive inner drive and a fire in all of us. I call it that high-performance mindset. So, when that’s switched on, you are very sharp, you’re very hungry and it’s time to get work done.” – Apolo Ohno


“Always continue to learn, and always stay hungry no matter what. We as human beings have the capacity to always grow. And we can change our neural chemistry through that system. We’re understanding how that works now. So, the mindset, to me was always the single greatest tool.” – Apolo Ohno


“Hopefully I can help people unlock their own inner potential in a way that they become more confident, more resilient, better relationships with their family, and they’re getting what they believe they both deserve and what they seek.” – Apolo Ohno

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“We've seen ourselves at our best. We've seen ourselves at our worst. And then we see ourselves, a lot of the time, kind of every day, kind of vacillating between the two. And the truth of the matter is, we know we're capable of more. We know we have some untapped potential.” – Brian Buffini

“You were designed, you were built and you were created as a unique person with a unique set of potential and gifts and talents inside of you.” – Brian Buffini

“If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.” – Jim Rohn

“Envy is the ulcer of the soul.” – Socrates

Because success is heavy, it carries a responsibility with it, it's much easier to procrastinate and live on the ‘someday I'll’ philosophy.” – Denis Waitley

“It's impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you fail by default.” – J.K. Rowling

“People often say motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

“Most people want to change their circumstances but don't want to change themselves. But changing yourself is where the magic is. That's where the value is.” – Brian Buffini

How To Love and Be Loved | Part 2: The 3 Wounds of Love #232

“We've got to name these wounds. We've got to enter into them, touch them, heal them, verbalize and then release them so that we can be the people that we were created to be.” – Joe Ehrmann

 

Wounds from your past can have a devastating impact on the way you feel about yourself and others. In this episode, the second in a special series of six, Brian and Joe Ehrmann teach how to identify and heal those wounds that make it difficult for you to truly love and be loved. Topics discussed include how a deeply personal experience with his young son led Joe to reflect on his own relationship with his father; how an incident in Brian’s childhood inspired his motivation to succeed in life; and why healing is not about affixing blame, but about understanding what shaped you.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“Most people want to change their circumstances, but they don't want to change themselves. The challenge is, if you change yourself, circumstances will change also.” – Brian Buffini

“If you have a pebble in your shoe and you leave it there, you're eventually going to develop a limp. And you can learn to walk through life with a limp, but it's better to go back, take it out, then learn to walk properly and then maybe help others get this pebble out of their shoe.” – Brian Buffini

“We share our woundedness with others to offer that as a hope for healing.” – Joe Ehrmann

“A wound is some unresolved issue. And it's not the fact that we're wounded in life. It's a decision we make as adults to deal with them.” – Joe Ehrmann

“All of us have woven into us this deep need for satisfaction. To be unconditionally loved, to be known for who and what we are and to be accepted for that.” – Joe Ehrmann

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“Don't allow one or two negative thoughts to detract away from the way that you communicate and interact with your family, with your loved ones, with your work and with the goals that you set forth on January 1.” – Apolo Ohno

“If you've been derailed, that's OK. But you have within your control to get back on the wagon, to reassess the situation and to go on the attack that's going to best suit what you're seeking. And unless you do that, and take control, you're just going to be a passenger in the speeding train versus being the conductor.” – Apolo Ohno

“I had the raw talent, but talent alone, unfortunately, is just not enough in the last 5 percent. It is merely just the starting line.” – Apolo Ohno

“There's a competitive inner drive and a fire in all of us. I call it that high-performance mindset. So, when that's switched on, you are very sharp, you're very hungry and it's time to get work done.” – Apolo Ohno

“I mean, the bottom line is what makes a champion, what makes an Olympian what makes a very successful person is a level of commitment where you're all-in.” – Brian Buffini

“Always continue to learn, and always stay hungry no matter what. We as human beings have the capacity to always grow. And we can change our neural chemistry through that system. We're understanding how that works now. So, the mindset, to me was always the single greatest tool.” – Apolo Ohno

“When opportunity comes, it's too late to prepare.” – John Wooden

“Hopefully I can help people unlock their own inner potential in a way that they become more confident, more resilient, better relationships with their family, and they're getting what they believe they both deserve and what they seek.” – Apolo Ohno

“My goal is to be better coming out of this than I was going into this. And that's what I'm challenging people to do.” –  Brian Buffini

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“I think the first couple of weeks, there was a degree of shock factor.” – Dr. Yun

“What I am seeing in recent weeks, the past couple of weeks, is that buyers are slowly coming back to the market. They're a little disappointed on the lack of inventory, but 70 percent of the workforce with secure employment they're looking at historically low mortgage rates and they're just looking for the right home that meets their needs.” – Dr. Yun

“I think people would be surprised to see how much activity is actually going on in the market in real world terms.” – Brian Buffini

“Trying to purchase a home and get the deal done is far safer than visiting grocery stores.” – Dr. Yun

“When we survey potential buyers and potential sellers, they are indicating that they are not out of the market, but simply delaying the entry point. They just want an all-clear signal from the Governor before reentering the market.” – Dr. Yun

“There’s no panic among home sellers.” – Dr. Yun

“Buyers are acting normal; sellers are acting normal.” – Dr. Yun

“There is still a great desire for people to buy, for people to sell and for people to own a home.” – Brian Buffini

“I anticipate, for the year as a whole in 2020, the sales activity will be down about 10 percent to 15 percent.” – Dr. Yun

“I think that home prices will not decline because of the inventory shortage that we have. There is no expectation by the buyers for any big discount.” – Dr. Yun

“Going into 2021, we have all this pent-up demand. I think the sales will increase about 15 percent and the price is rising 3 to 5 percent.” – Dr. Yun

“We have the political landscape, we have the media landscape and then we have some data.”  – Brian Buffini

“If we end up 2020 and we’ve lost 10 to 15 percent that would be remarkable and it would be fantastic and very acceptable for a bump in a year.”  – Brian Buffini

“For the current nationwide housing situation, we had a housing shortage before the pandemic and we have even acute shortage today because of not enough listings.” – Dr. Yun

“This is an adversity. You go through the adversity but come out at the end, the other side, to say ‘I have more knowledge, I have more relationships built up’ and that would be a very good starting point for the upturn that I anticipate will be happening later in the year.”  – Dr. Yun

“Positive attitude brings positive action.” – Dr. Yun

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“While it is unprecedented that we've never shut down the world because of a global pandemic ever, what isn't unprecedented is the fact that humans have gone through crises and overcome them.” – Shawn Achor

“What we have great precedent for is that humans overcome challenges and crises in the exact same way. Eventually, the turning point comes when people are able to raise their levels of optimism, social connection, refine the meaning that they have within their work, and be able to restart that forward progress.” – Shawn Achor

“People think happiness is connected to whimsy. This is a toughness. This is a determination. This is a resolve. It's a spirit. It's mind and heart.” – Brian Buffini

“I think people are going to become more grateful because convenience has been taken out of our life.” – Brian Buffini

“People are either going to get bitter or better at this time.” – Brian Buffini

“The mindset shift I'm hoping people make is not ‘How do I get out of this crisis myself? How do I hunker down? How do I solve this?’ But rather, ‘How do I create an interconnected pursuit of happiness and success within my life?’” – Shawn Achor

“The geometry of the challenges in your life are constantly in flux, based upon whether or not you think you're alone, or with other people overcoming a challenge.” – Shawn Achor

“I want to move away from a self-help approach to happiness.” – Shawn Achor

“The greatest predictors of our long-term levels of happiness right now are other people.” – Shawn Achor

“When somebody's going through a challenge, optimism doesn't shield them from it. But optimism and social connection cause them to become more adaptive to get out of that quicker.” – Shawn Achor

“The crisis actually gives us something meaningful to bond around.” – Shawn Achor

“People have these seeds of untapped potential that they oftentimes don't even know that they could cause to flourish, or they don't have the time for.” – Shawn Achor

“If the height of your potential is predicted by the people around you, we need to find some way of lifting them up right now.” – Shawn Achor

“There's ways to find growth in the midst of a challenge.” – Shawn Achor

“Sometimes you have to get away from what you have that's comfortable to go after what's great.”  – Brian Buffini

“Many markets in the United States are still doing a lot of buying and selling of homes right now.” – Vince Malta

“One thing I find with Realtors is they're so resilient. And they're so adaptable. And that's what they are doing right now. They're finding ways that they could help their clients either market their property or help them prepare for what they're going to do or providing them the latest information regarding Covid 19 through this crisis, and so that is, I think so great about our Realtor community. They make things work in sometimes the most adverse situations.” – Vince Malta

“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

“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

“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

“Over the next five years, probably four of those five years will be an improving year.” – 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

“You’re not truly successful, you’re not truly the great white, until you take others with you.” – Walter Bond

In business, success is often measured by the ability to beat the competition. However, to really achieve lasting success and make a difference in the world, you must work with, not against, other people. In this episode, Brian interviews former NBA star Walter Bond about his impactful new book, “Swim!: How a Shark, a Suckerfish and a Parasite Teach You Leadership, Mentorship and Next Level Success.” Walter explains why we should apply the principles of collaboration used by sharks in the ocean to connect with and learn from others in order to really succeed.
