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!

Shine Your Light on Others Real leadership, the kind of leadership that not only works but also has a lasting impact, is about building other people and shining your light on them, not on yourself.  Real leaders understand they are here to work for the team, and not the other way around. A mediocre leader tries to impress people with how important he or she is.  A great leader impresses upon people how important they are. People will be willing to do more and accomplish more when they feel recognized.  A little recognition goes a long way, but you have to

Good morning. Earnings season offers a big opportunity for markets to move in either direction.  With the market currently contending with the issues that come from rising interest rates, and the latest Covid variant (which Bill Gates say may be the last before Covid becomes more seasonal like the flu), this quarterly earnings report could be a make-or-break. While the data from the last quarter of 2021 are already in the rear-view mirror, early indications are that overall earnings for the S&P 500 are up 49 percent.  That’s hugely bullish, and some industries are likely to move higher no matter

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation reading of a 7 percent annual increase is the biggest move higher for inflation since 1982.  However, behind all headlines are some good and bad news.  Good news?  The rate of inflation growth is slowing, and that may be confirmed over the next few months. And, within the data that goes into inflation, some components are still continuing to rise, such as energy and gasoline prices.  But other factors, like meat prices, are starting to decline. This more nuanced picture shows that many inflation components are also tied in with shortages, and that the rate of

Good morning. The stock market continues to struggle to find its footing this year, as attempts to move higher seem to be thwarted by a number of news items such as rising Covid cases.  However, combined with a low death rate (something the news rarely talks about anymore), the latest variant may allow the pandemic to become endemic to those who haven’t yet moved on. In the meantime, a number of investors are getting bullish following the latest selloff.  Of particular note is the renewed interest in Bitcoin, where billionaire Bill Miller states that half his personal portfolio is now

Good morning. At its lows yesterday, the Nasdaq hit correction territory, down 10 percent from its most recent high.  That comes as interest rates continue to creep higher.  With a week loaded with economic data, that’s no surprise. By the end of the week we should see the latest inflation data with a CPI release on Wednesday, as well as the PPI for producer data.  Retail sales will give a hint as to how the holidays performed compared to prior years, and a number of Federal Reserve members have speaking engagements which can move the markets this week. With the

Good morning. Going into Friday’s job reports, a full 86 percent of market participants queried believed that the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in March.  Such a move, coming off of last week’s hawkish meeting minutes, would mean going from 0 percent interest rates to 0.25 percent. While not a huge move, it would be a sign that the economy is performing well and that the job market is getting close to normal.  While the latest jobs numbers had a big miss on Friday, enough jobs were created to drop the unemployment rate down to 3.9 percent.  Sure, the

More Newfoundland wonder! January 09, 2021 Getting A Job Is a Job A recruiter asked a job candidate, “Why did you leave your last job?” The job applicant replied, “It was something my boss said.” “What did he say?” “You’re fired.” This person definitely needs a copy of my new book – “Getting a Job is a Job” – which comes out Jan. 5.  In it, I focus on bouncing back after being fired, dealing with rejection and the emotions people feel.  And I explain why you can’t take it personally. The book is chock full of helpful hints on
