Why Your “WHY”

What motivates you?

Why Your _WHY_When you have a true “why,” motivation is easy.

For me, it started as my life.  I knew that if I didn’t stop being an addict, that I would soon die an addict.  And believe me, if I didn’t stop, I would be dead.  Plus, I wanted to live in luxury.  I wanted a big house and fast car.

Then, as I fulfilled my dream of starting my own business, my “why” got bigger and stronger.  I had a calling to assist other people to fulfill their dreams.  Becoming a leader that people looked up to excited me to get out of bed every day.  To this day, I wake up with joy and gratitude knowing that I get to make a difference in someone’s life.

But remember, everyone has a different “why.” Your “why” may be your desire for a better life.  But if that’s your why, I’d ask you to break that down.  Do you want a better car?  Do you want a better education for your children?  Maybe you want vacation time?

So your “why” is really your fuel to succeed.  If you don’t have a strong WHY, your HOW won’t matter.  What I mean is when you have a strong WHY, you’ll find a way to make it happen no matter what the circumstances.  Eventually, your WHY will make you believe in yourself.  You’ll start to think things like “I think I’m a leader.”  Obviously, you won’t get rich overnight.  It takes consistency.  But soon after this stage you will breakthrough.

My breakthrough years were 1997 & 1998.  It was so good I was afraid it might go away, but I soon got over it, because the process became automatic for me.  The sand shifted for me just like it can for you, and all of a sudden, the sand started to become granite.  Results really started to show up because of the fuel that I’d been putting in, the internal communication, the internal self-talk, a new set of dialogue, a new set of language.  I started to believe that it would happen to me, even though I used to think it could.

At this point, I started to really believe.

Better people and better opportunities start to show up on your doorstep the more you’re in the process.  When I say process, I mean you’re versed in the game.  There’s a difference between being in your company and being in the industry and marketing the product, and having the product in you.  That means having the product really in your heart.  When it’s in your heart, it’s out of your head, and when it’s in your heart, you’re in the game.

When you’re in the game, you’re sending telepathic messages that say,

“I’m the leader you’re looking for.”

“I can get you to your promised land.”

“Start with me.”

“I can get you there.  I can assist you with change.”

You’ll find that if you do things the right way, your “why” may change over time.  And that’s okay.  The important thing is that people will feel in your heart that you’re in the game to serve others.  People will join you from all the nations!

Finding Your _WHY_–Jeffery Combs

Executive Dive ClubGood morning.
Over the past several days, the market has finally started to dig in a little and we didn’t see a limit down event overnight or a trading stoppage during normal market hours.  I almost hate to say this, but it makes you want to see lower volatility times ahead.
While that may not necessarily be in the cards as the impact of our draconian COVID-19 response is unknown, we may have a moment in the sun here.  I don’t know about you, but I could use a little sun.

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
