“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.
