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. Oil prices have been driven by an imbalance between supply and demand for the past few years.  While OPEC has looked to gradually raise output, the cartel is now expecting markets to move into surplus this year.  That’s in contrast to other estimates right now. OPEC’s research may be the first step towards moving to cut its total output, potentially later in the year by likely some time in 2023.  That could help put a floor under oil, which has ranged as low as $90 recently after getting as high as $120 earlier in the year. While oil

Good morning. It finally happened.  After months of rising higher and higher on an annualized basis, inflation has finally cracked.  While the market liked the read of “only” an 8.5 percent year-over-year increase, it’s still incredibly high by any standard. And inflation is cumulative.  So the longer it’s higher than average, the more destructive it will be for investors over time.  While it’s a sign of good news, getting inflation down faster still means the economy will need to see a bigger slowdown from where it’s at now. So while markets jumped on the news, it’s possible that as the

Good morning. Stocks have been trending up for the past few weeks.  And with earnings season going fairly well, many traders may think the worst is over.  Yet, with the Federal Reserve rapidly tightening monetary conditions, and with inflation still running rampant, we may yet see another leg down for the markets. As with 2008, when the idea made the rounds that the pain in the subprime mortgage space was “contained,” there are any number of potential shocks to the economy that could cause the recent rally to stall.  We may already see that with the number of chipmakers this

Good morning. When it comes to America’s lawmaking process, you can get a good idea of what will happen by taking a law’s title and assuming the opposite.  Many are taking that approach with the “Inflation Reduction Act,” a law just passed by the Senate and moving to the House for a vote. Rather than cut back government spending, the law looks to increase it by hundreds of billions of dollars.  With the government running a deficit, chances are this legislation will add to, not reduce, inflationary pressures. That’s especially good news for the wealthy, as high-earners will be largely

Good morning. Friday’s strong jobs report brought the unemployment rate down to 3.5 percent.  While most would see that as good news, typically, the economy is at this level of employment at an economic peak.  Similar levels in 2020, 2007, and 2000 can attest to that. This strong report also gives the Fed a reason to keep aggressively raising interest rates.  The economy won’t cool down until more people are losing jobs than gaining them.  And given how fast the Fed has been hiking rates, the more likely it is that they could fuel a “hard landing” that they’re working

Only days away now! St. John’s Quidi Vidi inlet… August 07, 2021 Cultivating A Beginner’s Mindset “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” –Shunryu Suzuki If it’s true what they say, that no one likes a know-it-all, what happens when the know-it-all lives in your head?  Funny enough, when people think they know all there is to know on a subject, they prove to be more closed-minded.  And daresay, less enjoyable to be around. The question then becomes: how can you embrace more of a beginner’s mindset, which reflects humility with respect

  Today! August 06, 2021 Good morning. Rising Delta-variant cases, inflation fears, supply chain issues – the market is dealing with a lot right now.  That’s caused the market to feel like it’s sagging and about to drop, even when stocks are still just under all-time highs. Looking at the big tech space, which is largely rallying once again, and which makes up the biggest part of the market, it’s clear that the recent fears are just part of the “wall of worry” that the stock market sees during a bull market.  That view is also supported by Goldman Sachs
