“Everything you need is underneath your nose. It’s also in your head and your heart.” — Brian Buffini

The Frank Capra film It’s a Wonderful Life is more than a feel-good holiday classic starring Hollywood icon Jimmy Stewart; it’s main intention is to offer a heaping dose of encouragement to those who are feeling discouraged. In this episode, recorded at Buffini & Company’s MasterMind Summit 2017, Brian Buffini delves into what causes us to feel discouraged from time to time and reveals five encouraging ways to change your perspective and make your life wonderful. You’ll learn how comfort and our society foster feelings of entitlement, the common symptoms of discouragement and the tools you can use to feel more encouraged and optimistic about life. ‘Tis the season for gratitude and reflection; this episode will help you appreciate what you have and encourage you to find your purpose.
