“Your purpose will be revealed; it’s an elimination process, not a selection process.” —Brian Buffini

Although the strange times we live in have led many of us to feel this is the worst time to be alive, the reality is the American self-development movement has led to decades of unprecedented growth. In fact, there’s more room for opportunity and success than ever before, no matter what the media or anyone says. In this episode, recorded at MasterMind Summit 2017, Brian Buffini delves into the cause of our stress and anxiety about the world today and offers his solution to help us cultivate an optimistic perspective—personal growth. Brian explains the evolution of personal development in America, starting with Russell Conwell and his ground-breaking work, “Acres of Diamonds” and delves into the lives and work of the people who followed him, including Dale Carnegie, Og Mandino, and Brian Tracy. You’ll learn why personal development has been so critical to the personal and economic growth of the U.S., why there are more opportunities to succeed now than ever before and how to put the timeless, basic principles into action in your life. By the end of the episode, you’ll be inspired to turn off the endless stream of doom and gloom and turn to the writings and speeches of America’s great personal growth leaders.
