“Mastery is about bringing your gifts to the outside.” — Brian Buffini

Many of us are so focused on achieving that we live in fast-forward; that is, we focus on “once I get there…” instead of what’s in front of us right now. Add distractions into the mix and it becomes that much more difficult to embark on the journey to mastery. But, don’t give up; instead, hit the “pause” button. In this episode Brian Buffini delves into the concept of mastery. Using George Leonard’s best-selling book, Mastery as a guide, Brian outlines what mastery is, what it isn’t and how to avoid the pitfalls along the way. You’ll learn what mastery means, why true mastery is contrary to our culture of quick fixes, how slowing down is essential to learning and growing, and why plateaus are essential to progress. Hit “pause” in your life and get inspired to rethink everything you know about mastery.

Inspirational quotes from today’s interview

“It was love at first sight for me the day I met her.” — Brian Buffini

“I grew up in a culture where we didn’t see color, so we didn’t go into our relationship looking at that. The biggest question we received was, ‘what about your children?’ and we said ‘what about our children?’ What people are asking is, ‘what about your differences?’ It’s more than color when you get married.” — Beverly Buffini

“Consider who you’re marrying and your love will grow from that if it’s meant to be.” — Beverly Buffini

“We developed our mission statement for our relationship and our family. We revisit it all the time.” — Brian Buffini

“Where we’ve had major breakthroughs in our relationship is to never question one another’s motives.” — Brian Buffini

“Forgiveness is not saying you’re sorry. There’s a difference between remorse and repentance.” — Brian Buffini

“Human beings do better together. It’s harder to work through our stuff with ourselves. There’s stuff that hasn’t gone outside our relationship because of that trust.” — Brian Buffini

“I can’t change him. He can’t change me. We can influence one another, but not change one another.” — Beverly Buffini

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” — 1 Corinthians 13
