What causes a compound to be formed from elements?

Every element that isn't a noble gas, wants to become isoelectronic or have the same number of electrons as its nearest noble gas. This is because noble gases are very stable, while other elements aren't. Forming compounds allows elements to gain or lose electrons, which allows them to become like their nearest noble gas.
