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!

“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
