Quit Holding Yourself Back

When you’re struggling, do you ever find that your thoughts are mired knee-deep in yourself?  Put differently, have you ever noticed that self-centeredness and self-interest are the quickest paths to hold yourself back on the journey to significance?

On the other side of the coin, if you truly want to make an impact and lead a life of significance, then you need to go beyond yourself, which involves…

    • Seeing beyond yourself.  As Albert Einstein famously said, “A person starts to live when he can live outside himself.”  According to John C. Maxwell, people who fail to get beyond themselves are usually selfish or insecure or both.  The world doesn’t owe you a living, and you are not indispensable.
    • Growing beyond yourself.  Gandhi put it best when he said, “The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.”  Growing beyond yourself starts with discovering your purpose, clarifying your priorities and getting passionate about life.  The fastest way to get better is to hang out with better people.
    • Giving beyond yourself.  “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is,” according to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “what are we doing for others?”  Life really takes off when we invest ourselves and our resources in others.
    • Gathering beyond yourself.  If you want to surround yourself with great people, you need to work at becoming a great person.  And since we attract the people most like ourselves, take an honest inventory of the people surrounding you right now.

According to John Maxwell, here are 6 ways to get beyond yourself:

    • Beachlife LivingQuit taking yourself so seriously.
    • Quit thinking that the world owes you a living.
    • Quit believing you are indispensable.
    • Start seeing through other people’s eyes.
    • Start placing value on others.
    • Start understanding your purpose on earth

Simply put, if you really want to make an impact and move forward on your journey to significance, you have to go beyond yourself; you have to step outside yourself.

And if you are struggling, stop feeling sorry for yourself and go out and help someone.  Add value to the world.  Turn your moping into mentoring and help someone climb the ladder in your world.  The best thing you can do for yourself is to make everyone around you better.

We believe in you, and we believe that you are called to set the bar high, taking it into the world around you.  In spite of all the happy selfies people post on social media, there are hurting people out there — much closer than you might imagine.

To Making it a Great Day!

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
