#1 Way to bounce back

When life takes a different turn to what you had planned, you will sometimes find it difficult to bounce back. Your mind starts to wonder ‘why is this happening’ especially if this situation had happened previously.


You fail to recognize that these are experiences, that failure is life’s way of saying you need to pay attention to certain things e.g improve your skills, your attitude or some other aspect of your life.

The best way to bounce back is to see things for what it is.

looking for a job

So you lost your job, but you did not like the job in the first place.  When you got the job opportunity instead of starting off observing the environment and learning all you can, you became obsessed with pleasing people.  You got involved in the office politics and now you drag yourself to get up to go to the office. You now need to start over. Find a job that you are passionate about. Something, that at the end of the day you feel a sense of accomplishment. Observation and learning is key in the probationary stage. Do not rush to please the boss or manager, and be careful of people who are too nice to you. The knowledge you acquire from observing and learning will move you quickly through the ranks.

If you were bypassed for a position take this opportunity to re-brand yourself. Have a documented approach to your re-branding.  Find ways to develop yourself for the position you want. Get a Life Coach and one or two mentors. Add new circles of influence. Review your dress code. Lose or put on weight if you have to.

broken heart

If you are trying to bounce back from a relationship realize that there is no love lost. You were always loved and will always be loved.  You cannot love someone for whatever number of years and then say I no longer love you. Was that really true love in the first place?  Find a Life Coach and transform yourself. Join new groups. Find your true purpose. The more you achieve celebrate your achievements.

You have to be truly committed to transforming. Some people may want to take the easy way out, but know this you must put effort into anything you want to achieve.

Bouncing back is like being on a trampoline the lower you fall the higher you get back up.

101 Great Ways to Compete in the Job Market

How to unleash the genius in you

Sometimes it is really difficult to find the positive side of a challenge confronting us. When dealing with adversity – a career setback, the ending of a long-time relationship or the illness of a child – it’s hard to believe there is a sunny side or a silver lining to this experience. But history is full of people who found possibilities through adversity. Reflecting on some of their achievements can remind us to look for opportunities when dealing with challenges..


If a young Spanish soccer star had not been injured seriously in a car accident and spent months recuperating in the hospital, he likely would not have discovered his musical side. The world might have missed the beautiful voice of Julio Iglesias.


McDonalds and the “golden arches” would not exist today if Ray Kroc’s several ventures had not ended in bankruptcy prior to his opportune meeting the McDonald brothers. History has it that he purchased a little hamburger stand that later became the world’s preeminent fast food franchise.

Had Walt Disney not failed in his initial dreams to the point of bankruptcy, the magic of the Magic Kingdom and the hundreds of Disney related businesses would not exist today.

According to Napoleon Hill – “Every adversity, every failure, and every heartache, carries with it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.”

It’s the tough to believe, but sometimes we are taught lessons that will benefit us. You must allow yourself to be open to what life is teaching you and apply it later when the opportunity presents itself.

Many challenges were not insurmountable to begin with, they only needed a little creativity or fortitude and a gentle nudge from the creative side in you. Allowing yourself to have positive and affirming outlook sometimes seems contrary to what is expected of us today. We are taught to be humble lest we seem too full of ourselves. Modesty gets in the way and we are expected to play down our strengths and play up our weaknesses to help us fit in.

You have to maintain the attitude and mindset of a creative problem solver and learn to develop opportunity awareness. Look for the  possible benefits and opportunities hidden even in adversity or hardship. Learn to visualize any negative situation as an opportunity for metamorphosis, like a caterpillar changing into a butterfly. Sometimes creativity calls for looking at a combination of things that you had not thought of previously.

With the help of inspirational quotes from people like McDonalds, Disney and MacGyver, allow yourself to find the opportunity  or silver lining even in the midst of challenges or tragedy.

Why stay in your job more than 2 years to get paid less?

Do you know that the longer you stay in a job the less you get paid?

Award glass plaque


We were brought up and told you  have to get a good education to get a good job. If you are a man this helps you support your family. If you are a woman this helps contribute to the  family’s budget.

Most people wanted a government job because it was easier and others opt for jobs in the private sector. The education system never hinted at having  your own business. Now job life is so stressful for some people that they want out. They want freedom to live a better life, freedom to have more time for family and do the things that they are really passionate about.

There are so many opportunities to have the life that we want, but we prefer to stick with the job, after all it provides security and do not forget the pension. So who said it was secure when everyday you hear of job cuts, even in the government and what about the pension, by the time you are ready to leave you can barely live on the pension.

Having your own business is not for everyone, someone has to do the work, but if, just if you have it in you to run your own business would you give it a shot?  I bet a lot of people would say no. You see we are people who like to stay with what we are familiar with. We afraid to go there, afraid to fail – what if something goes wrong? How am I going to live? How am I going to take care of my family?  I am accustom to getting paid whether I work or not. Little do we know that there are people who are their own bosses, no employees and do not have to worry about money. Check out these people below – they are their own boss, no employees and the money is flowing.

Are you derailing productivity?


It’s in your best interest as a manager to ensure that your team is productive, but despite your good intentions, there are plenty of ways managers unintentionally stifle the successful workplace environment you’re striving to foster. Here are a few common ways your efforts to be a supportive manager may actually hinder your team’s productivity potential.

1. You don’t scrutinize meeting agendas. Though ensuring you have a relationship with the people you report to is important (nearly 55% of respondents to a Society for Human Resource Man­­age­­ment (SHRM) Employee Job Sat­­is­­fac­­tion and Engagement survey said it was a key factor in the level of engagement they feel with their jobs), meetings aren’t the way to foster a connection among employees. To facilitate productivity, all meetings should have one defining purpose: to move further toward a defined and desired result.

Before a meeting, ask yourself:

(1) Is there an agenda?

(2) Does each item on the agenda have a defined and specific outcome that will lead to either continued momentum, and/or completion?

(3) Does each agenda item specify the amount of time and attention it will receive?

(4) Does each agenda item have an “owner” assigned?

(5) Are all the people who need to be involved in an agenda item available?

(6) Does everyone on the invite have a “place” on the agenda?

(7) Does the meeting end time coincide with the amount of time each agenda item will receive?

Lead by example, and encourage your staff to get in the habit of strategically scrutinizing every meeting for these criteria as well.  If every question above can’t be answered in the affirmative, consider alternative ways to communicate.

2. You force your way. Taking a “hands off” approach isn’t all there is to delegating; you must also be mindful about allowing employees to have a voice. “It isn’t about you, it is about the work,” says Dr. Jené Kapela, a leadership coach, consultant, and the founder of Jené Kapela Leadership Solutions. “Don’t be concerned that things get done your way —just that they get done well. Your staff members will do a better job if they can do things in a way that makes sense to them.” With that in mind, however, she says you’ll need to create opportunities for those discussions to take place—and keep an open mind about any approach.

3. You don’t confirm communication. Miscommunications usually aren’t revealed until a mistake occurs in the midst of a project, or until an employee hits a “roadblock” that causes him or her to seek clarification. By that time, countless hours of what could have been productive time are lost. To eliminate potential miscommunication, Mark Goulston, management consultant and author of six best-selling books including Just Listen suggests tweaking your language when you give direction. “Instead of asking ‘Do you have any questions?’ replace it with a phrase like ‘So that we are clear, please tell me what I have asked you to do, by when and why it’s important to what we are trying to achieve,’” says Goulston. Not only will repeating the information help the em­­ployee begin to process the task and reveal miscommunication before it’s problematic, you’ll gradually gain a better understanding of how to communicate effectively with the different personalities on your team.

4. You do more than one thing at a time. Though multitasking may seem like the only way to handle a demanding workload, it’s ineffective in terms of maximizing productivity. “Constant multitasking makes us more prone to mistakes, more likely to miss important information and cues, and less likely to retain information in working memory—which impairs problem solving and creativity,” says Maura Thomas, author of Personal Productivity Secrets. Further, she points out that it can lead to job unhappiness and undue stress among your staff. “In multitasking environments, employees work in reactive mode all day long; it prevents them from being proactive, and robs them of the opportunity to assess their overall workload and choose what to work on next.”

To encourage more single-task focus, remember that the team looks to you for the “right” behavior. Don’t take your smart­­phone into meetings, don’t check emails while you’re on conference calls, and establish a protocol for how “urgent” requests for information are to be handled. For example, you may instill a policy that when urgent needs arise, colleagues visit one another in person, versus sending urgent emails that make it impossible to temporarily disconnect from online distractions.

How to get involve in network marketing

Working on line and from home has become so competitive and sometimes it appears that everyone wants to become millionaires overnight.  They go from one opportunity to the other failing to realize you have to put in the time. The largest industry now is network marketing. This can go from working solely on line or both on and offline. You cannot work online if you are not involved in network marketing.

Network marketing is not your conventional job and as the name implies you have to network. Whether it is connecting with people on facebook , twitter or linkedin or buying leads you have got to network. There are people who work the business and they are millionaires.  Did I say work the business? Yes this is what they do every day.

As a result of being scammed by various on line money making schemes it is now a requirement that you must provide a product or service when offering any type of money making option. If you recall Zeek Rewards had a service about placing Ads but that still went belly up.  So, it is important that the company has a core business model.

By now if you have been in the network marketing field you must realize that the way to make money is in the numbers. That’s how you make money and how the company makes money.  E.g If I sell one service at $60 and suppose to get back $10, that $10 is not a direct payout to me; I only get a percentage of it based on where I am in the group. So I must sell 100 of these for it to make sense. On the other hand if I enroll reps I can get anywhere between $25 and $100 or even more for each rep. If they fall out I have already been paid. If 100 people pay $99 to enroll and 50% do nothing the company does not lose since there is normally no refund on enrollment.

 fire your boss

Why then would you want to work online and from home?  Freedom – is it time to fire your boss, because you are just fed up of having him/her over your shoulder every day. The frustration is just too much, too much office politics, too much red tape. What about those bills that have been following you  around, but you can’t find any money as yet to settle them? Then there is funding to start up your own business because you have been passionate about doing this for a long time. Whatever your reason there are still some seemingly genuine options that are available, but how do you know which one to select?

Below you will find some tips on selecting an online/home based money making business option:

–      Decide what is your why – why do you want to join this business – freedom, more time with family, just some cash to settle your debts, whatever your reason it must be something that will provide that impetus to take you through the not so good times.

–      Do your research – what is their industry and where are they in their particular industry. Have they been highlighted in various magazines, awarded any prizes – top ten or top one hundred fastest growing company. 400% or more growth in the last four years or close. What about their culture, how do they deal with representatives? Are they sound financially? Will they be around next year or next five or ten years? Do they have a well-orchestrated company strategy? You can easily find some companies to make some quick cash but there is no guarantee they will be around for the long haul.

–      Can you afford the registration fee? The more sound companies have a registration and/or a monthly fee.  

–      Most networking companies require you to have at least two referrals to start the process. Do you have two people who are not only willing but would work the business as a team with you? Take it from me if you are serious about the business you need people who are also serious about the business. This is not a business where you get in and start vacation immediately and expect to reap the rewards.

–      Do you need storage for your products?

–      How much time do you have to devout to the business?

–      How are you going to get customers and market your business? If you have been in various networking groups before that did not work your best bet is to look outside of your family. They will come around when they see you progressing. Are you familiar with social media – facebook, twitter, linkedin? If you are working and plan to moonlight – then you definitely need to know social media.

–      What about training? Does the company have training and support?

–      Do you have the necessary tools – phone, text messaging, optimized website, webinar etc.?

–      What about payment options – do you have a credit/vtm or US Debit card? If you are delving into direct payment schemes you need to have a paypal/solid trust pay account and you need to have your credit card or vtm card linked to these accounts.

The above are just some of the issues to consider when you are looking for on line and work from home opportunities.

It’s not fair and it is unjust

It’s not fair, so this is your opportunity to get into the 5%.

The ball is in your court.

basket ball

Take 100 men and women at the start of their working careers and follow them for forty years until they reach retirement age, and here’s what you’ll find. According to the Social Security Administration:
• Only one will be wealthy

• Four will be financially secure

• Five will continue working, not because they want to but because they have to;

• Thirty-six will be dead;

• And fifty-four will be dead broke, dependent on their meager Social Security Pensions, relatives, friends, even charity for a minimum standard of living.

That’s five percent successful, ninety five percent unsuccessful.

It’s not fair.

Don’t you hate the fact that it’s all too easy to be one of the unfortunate ninety five percent who never make it? And yet you don’t want that to happen to YOU.

Is there anything worse than wanting to get ahead but because of ‘lack of knowledge’ you somehow can’t quite get started?

Don’t you hate it that through no fault of your own, your personal circumstances may be holding you back from earning the money that you really deserve? 

It’s not fair and it’s unjust.

There has to be a better way. And there is.

This is your opportunity to be in the 5%

You may be busy right now.  You may have been ‘burnt’ by somebody’s else’s offer of teaching you how to ‘get rich’ . . . .

Two thirds of my life is undoubtedly just like yours, I live in the real world, not in fantasy or ‘la la’  land.

Now I’m not saying for one minute that you can not make money from any other opportunity  . . . in fact many people do make serious money, however getting your hands on any money making tools is one thing . . .teaching you, holding your hand every step of the way is another.

But, if you truly are sick and tired of flogging yourself closer and closer to an early grave, in your current business, or worse still in service to someone who pay’s you a pittance for your blood, sweat and tears, or you simply want to create wealth and buy back your life, then welcome to what I promise will be one of the most truthful, blunt, practical and insightful opportunity to what it takes to become wealthy and to ‘Retire Sooner’!

How to overcome negative vibes among your staff?

If you are a Supervisor or Manager this article may prove helpful.


Overcoming ‘negative vibes’ among your staff: 10 tips


Every HR pro and manager has to deal with a certain amount of pessimistic, hostile or uncooperative behavior at times. It’s just part of the workplace. But a hard-core negative attitude that starts with just one employee can quickly infect an entire department (or sometimes a whole company) if you don’t rein it in quickly. The ugly result: A workplace that’s rife with backstabbing, gossiping and rebellious employees. Cal Butera, the editor of Business Management Daily’s Office Manager Today and Manager’s Legal Bulletinnewsletters, provides the top 10 tips for confronting employees whose negative behavior has begun to affect co-workers and the company.


1. Don’t get drawn into the employees’ negative mind-set. Listen to their points, but don’t temper your own realistic optimism.

2. Avoid getting into an argument. Negative people thrive on the negative energy of arguments. Point out areas of agreement when possible in order to build rapport. Keep your cool.

3. Set standards. Spell out the consequences of negative behavior, such as decreased morale. Base them on behavior, not attitude. For example, you may not be able to change the fact that an employee doesn’t like a certain company policy. But you can discipline employees if they don’t follow the policy or are insubordinate in gossiping about it.

4. Ask questions. Force the employee to be specific about what is creating his or her negative thoughts and actions.

5. Try role-playing. Ask the em­­ployee to put himself in your shoes and pretend he has been asked to resolve the problem. That way, you will have the employee contribute his ideas for the best possible solutions. Involving the employee may also lead to more positive feelings about the solution or outcome since he or she had a hand in creating it.

6. Listen carefully. Use active listening to ensure that you’re understanding the employee correctly.

7. Don’t lower your expectations of the employee. A negative attitude doesn’t necessarily mean a poor performer.

8. Empower employees. Stop the “victim” mentality from forming. Allow employees to take responsibility for “good” events, so they can make them happen again, and for the “bad” events, so they have the power to change them in the future.

9. Solicit feedback. Always ask for employees’ opinions before making major decisions that will affect them. The more you listen to employees, and take an active interest in their concerns, the less likely they will be to complain to each other.

10. Hire right. Identify negative people before they’re hired. During the interview, listen for feelings that “life isn’t fair” in response to questions like: Have you ever felt you’ve been treated unfairly in the past? What were your chief concerns about management in your previous jobs? and What would you have changed if you were the manager at your last job?

Along with those 10 tips, here are four things you should NEVER do in your effort to stop negativity from wrecking your workplace:

1. Don’t shower negativists with a lot of attention. You’re only rewarding bad behavior.

2. Don’t stop asking them to pitch in and do tasks outside their normal job descriptions. Otherwise, you’re also punishing positive (or less vocal) employees.

3. Don’t correct them less often in order to avoid dealing with the attitude. Employees can’t be expected to change for the better if they’re not asked to.

4. Don’t allow employees to get bored or complacent. A negative attitude develops easily when there’s “nothing to look forward to.”

Are you benefiting from working late?

Leaving Office on time


Someone forwarded the above to me and it got me wondering – are there benefits to working late?

Has the person who wrote this script ever worked in an office?

Surely if you were to interview people who work late they will provide some reasons and benefits why they work late, e.g – a project to complete, a deadline to meet and the rewards/bonuses they receive quarterly or yearly. You may ask- Why can’t these tasks be completed during the normal working hours? Should we stop helping our coworkers on the job or refuse to attend meetings because we have our share of work to complete because  these things contribute to working late.  Are the working hours structured to accommodate all the tasks we are given? You hear so many stories where in some companies, people are performing tasks that should be completed by two persons, and you know this is true because if they leave, the company divides the job functions into two positions.

I recall years ago in one of my previous jobs my coworker and I left office around 1.45 am. We were trying to balance and complete financial reports for the company. Why did we do this? Surely we  never thought of ourselves as being incompetent. We wanted to do a good job, make sure everything was perfect. We agreed to a deadline and we wanted to deliver. We were of the view that if you say you are going to do something you need to do it.

Whether you are working for someone or working for yourself there will be a time when you have to work late and you will see the benefits – you delivered a report on time, or before time despite your various challenges, a client is happy because you were able to complete his application on time and above all you met your targets. You feel good about yourself.

The flip side is whether working late is a norm for you – this is when you have to really sit down and review your position. Is this making sense? Where am I now? Where do I want to be? When do I want to get there? Will this get me there? What sacrifices do I have to make to get there? Can I do better?

At the end of it all the decision is yours to make – no one can make you work late or tell you what is important to you, however you may want to bear the following in mind.

love your job
