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!

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.

Today “small town” in Newfoundland is… Salt Harbour. May 15, 2021 Struggling … how to break bad habits? “Nothing is impossible.  The word itself say, ‘I’m possible.’” –Audrey Hepburn There’s no one single reason why we struggle — to break bad habits, achieve our goals, or excel in our desired domain — but more often than not, the biggest challenge is sitting between your two ears. Yes, your mind is incredibly powerful, and quite frankly, it’s a double-edge sword.  The stories you tell yourself, the things you believe about yourself, and the way you talk to yourself can either be

Today! May 14, 2021 Good morning. One year ago, oil prices went negative as traders feared that the pandemic would lead to prolonged drops in oil use and got caught in trades they couldn’t get out of.  Today, oil and gasoline prices have held up well in inventory reports.  However, supply issues remain in the South and up and down the East Coast, even as Colonial pipeline paid a $5 million ransom to the hackers who shut down their system.  A number of states have declared emergencies as supplies have run low. It just goes to show that oil, one

Good morning. Meme stocks are back!  Well, sort of. A spike in companies like AMC Entertainment (AMC) and GameStop (GME) occurred yesterday.  GameStop was even halted multiple times on the way up (but not on the way down).  Oddly, this may be an early sign that markets are looking for a short-term bottom, given the sharp reversals higher. On CNBC, analyst Jim Cramer came out against the traders of meme stocks using sites like Reddit’s Wall Street Bets, to find the meme stock opportunities in the first place.  Tough words for someone whose television show features sound effects.  But for

Good morning. The good news?  Inflation has slightly slowed on a year-over-year basis, for the first time in seven months.  The bad news?  It’s still high at 8.3 percent.  And it came in higher than expectations. Looking at the data shows some reasons for the unexpected strength.  Most components of CPI still rose more than 6 percent in April.  But soaring food prices – which we’ve warned about fairly often — were a big contributor.  Another big move higher was record airfare prices, as high fuel costs and a reopened economy drove prices up. The data doesn’t give too much

Good morning. Typically, growth stocks lead the market.  That’s because these companies have the ability to scale up rapidly, and one of the best signs of a stock heading higher over the long haul is increased earnings. Yet every few years, value stocks have their time to shine.  A year ago, Warren Buffett’s performance as being derided.  Yet he’s buying stocks now.  In contrast, Ark Innovation, the hypergrowth fund managed by Cathie Wood, is now not just down relative to Buffett — but it’s underperforming the S&P 500 since its inception. Can these trends reverse in time?  Yes.  Will they

Good morning. Any econ 101 student can tell you that there’s a lag effect between something like, say, the creation of trillions of dollars in spending, and inflation rates reflecting that.  We’re seeing that trend play out today, with the highest inflation levels in decades. The good news?  Some of that new money first went to financial markets, rather than in goods and services.  That helped keep many things affordable, especially during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic.  But today, we’re seeing the impacts of those past lockdowns (and current ones).  And we’re seeing that handing out money directly

Good morning. People don’t mind inflation when it hits things like assets.  When stocks and home prices are rising, consumers feel wealthier.  This “wealth effect” tends to be beneficial to spending, which then become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The 2009-2020 market rally started with this effect.  The bank bailouts propped up the banks, but didn’t cause inflation on Main Street.  Today, thanks to the stimulus measures during the pandemic, Main Street went on a spending binge.  That’s caused a reverse wealth effect as the prices of goods like food and utilities are rising at a rapid rate — but now asset
