“This is content that shaped and challenged my thinking and spurred me on to greater and greater success.” — Brian Buffini

Although Og Mandino went on to become an inspirational writer and founder of what became Success Magazine, he wasn’t always successful. An insurance salesman by profession, his alcoholism caused his relationship with his wife and child to suffer. When he hit rock bottom, he was inspired to live after hearing a choir sing “Amazing Grace” at a cathedral and dedicated himself to writing. This daily habit eventually became “The Greatest Salesman in the World.” In this episode, Brian Buffini outlines ten of the scrolls included in Og’s seminal work, which helped Brian shape his own thinking and encouraged him to succeed. By reading over these 10 affirmations each day for 30 days, you’ll begin to reshape your thinking; if you review them every day for 10 months, you’ll reshape your life.
